Hello, I was wondering what is better to have to do the most damage for my Witch Doctor. Should I go towards Critical Damage or Critical Chance? I'm trying to get my DPS up because I'm only at 15k and im on Inferno. I know I should also focus on Attack speed and Intelligence.
Thank you for your input,
Both? You want to crit more, and you want those crits to do more damage. Once you get the +crit damage to a reasonable level you'd be fine stacking crit chance - but they're expensive stats.

The only builds that really need high attack speed are darts. You could make an argument for a firepit drain build. Other than that, IAS is pretty overrated for us. Let the DoTs do the work :)
It's a trade off and ideally you should work on both without sacrificing too much to get them. Easiest route for crit damage is a socket in a weapon (though it'll cost you). Gloves and bracers are cheap for crit chance. I should point out that any item with both + a primary stat is going to be ridic expensive since stacking CC/CD is now the official "cool" thing to do post IAS nerf.
The best ratio of crit chance:crit dmg for ur effective dmg is 1%:10%.
If u r using 1h weapon, try to get 1h crit dmg weapon wif crit chance offhand.
Tip: offhand can hv up to 8.5% crit chance, glove can up to 10% and not many item gv up high crit dmg, so try to get as much crit dmg as u can, then only go for crit chance.
If u r using 2h weapon, u need to adjust the crit chance to higher than 1h build.
My own stat is about 32% crit chance and 319% crit dmg, 1.77 aps, 1.7k int, i having 60k+ dps unbuff.
