WD Builds for MP 5

What are some WD builds for MP 5 or higher? Where is a good route to play higher mp levels? Thank you.

The reason you are probably asking the question is it looks like your defensive stats are too low.

33,000 HP and low All Resistance is probably most of your problem. All Resist should be 400 or more before int increases. HP should be 40,000 or more.

Your life generation is all life on hit which comes from your ring and your amulet and totals around 1000. The skill you have to proc LoH is AC.

So if you go low on mana fighting elites you die, because firebomb isn't a good skill to proc LoH and you can't throw AC because you don't have the mana. You go low on mana because GI and GF don't work so well without monster death or health globes.

So what can you do to fix it?

Swap Firebomb for Rain of Toads (RoT) - RoT is one of the best skills we have to proc LoH. If you go low on mana or health, get the toads falling and you should be OK, provided you can take a few hits (up your defensive stats as noted above when possible).

Swap out your weapon for one with LoH or LS - The weapon is the only place to get life steal for us WDs. It is also possible to get some good life on hit on a weapon. Keep this in mind for future upgrades.

Longer range if you get some more AR (resist all) and you still use the same EF weapon, then I would suggest you look at Blackthorn's Jousting Mail. It can have over 400+ life on hit and two sockets. Their only drawback is no AR.

If you want to see more details of a RoT build and a bear build, look for the recent posts by Soundb.
