This is not the thread for your negativity, I see where you are coming from and I can tell you're just trying to show your old school ways. It's unimportant because this thread is about fun WD specs that we can play with and enjoy. Some people may not be as hardcore as you and if they wanted to be they could just change it to MP3-4.

Only issue is that it doesn't crit, but if you're going for a non crit build it would be hilariously fun.
That does look like a fun build only because I love firebats haha.

I think if pets would of been at 1.04 level at the start WDs could have gone 1H/mojo and been able to live. People on SC side were able to build a CC pet build and get into A3 (however I don't think any of the few the pet doctors beat the game). Unfortunately, as someone who has ALWAYS been a pet WD, we just did not have the items in HC to support the build well enough, you needed Int/Vit/Str/AR/CC on almost every piece, it was just.... annoying and fragile... I couldn't kill anything ><;

Yea I figured there was some value because using it sometimes it hits really hard and sometimes it just fails... lol I have been successful with a high AS and average damage build, using RoT and plague bats.

My a3 runs of bats with PtV were faster than bears with BR.
A simple way to remedy this is to use Zombie wall - Barricade or Grasp of the Dead - Unbreakable Grasp, just spam into these great snares without taking any damage by the end they should be dead. Zombie wall does 800% of your dps which is actually a lot.
The best LoH ability for a WD is Frogs - Rain of Toads, it does 100% of your loh and hits twice AND effects in an AoE. Math time
If mob is standing still it has the greatest effect, you can litterally spam it around the battle field with high AS. I have had my Loh proccing on me for close to 5-6k depending on the mobs that I hit.
(800*2)*(amount of mobs)
4800 life gained
NOW the downside to RoT is that fact that it doesnt crit, but can be stacked on mobs. With high enough dps you can stack it enough to do consistently high damage. In my case only having about 50-60k dps my RoT stacked can do anywhere between 80k-150k dps.
I run 500-1000 LoH Safely.

Loving the build I saw on your profile yesterday, using Spirit Barrage + bears with Blood ritual and Rush of Essence. Feels like a build I can finally use to Zombie Bears without running out of mana. I can't part with Zombie Dogs though, too much of a meat shield.
Spirit Barrage does such a good job of both nuking from far and picking up stragglers without having to target everything like rain of toads. Seems like it does a decent job with LoH as well, but can't confirm. Not to mention the regen from blood ritual is a great added bonus.
