02/21/2013 04:08 PMPosted by MikeHonchoI would just love someone to FINALLY address the scaling problem with MP. It's a huge roadblock that makes WD the most undesirable PVE class to most people. We have an insane gear check once we get to about MP 8, where you either have "x" dps or "x" regen or you're dead. At MP9 and 10, you better have "x" dps AND "x" regen or you're dead. This is in addition to defensive stats. Everyone else just worries about dps and defense (with the exception of Wiz but they get to stack IAS).
02/21/2013 02:58 PMPosted by SKORPIQNAre you aware that Toad of Hugeness is completely pointless skill?
What really needs to be addressed is WD stats on bows.
Why do they even appear when quivers are "DH only"????

The guy was trying to offer advice relevant to the question (which you would think should be a little more valuable than just any joe shmoe) and the thread is hijacked by complaints and ranting. There's an appropriate place for complaints and suggestions and this is not it.
02/21/2013 03:13 PMPosted by DikembeWe’re aware of the unique resource challenge that Witch Doctors face, and how that can affect the desire for IAS. I would say that IAS is still valuable for Witch Doctors, but that value scales heavily with effective resource management, and that’s intentional.
The problem is that resource management is very hard to find on gear.
Take mana cost reduction to Zombie Charger, for example. This resource management affix actually scales with IAS (unlike most other mana bonuses) and Witch Doctors would never complain about the mana cost of Zombie Bears if they had 3 or 4 pieces of gear with this affix (the way Wizards stack Arcane Power on Crit). But the problem is that this affix only rolls on Mara's amulets, Stone of Jordan / Skull Grasp rings, and mojos/shields/crossbows, and quite rarely at that, so the chances of finding this gear yourself is next to none, making the AH prices huge.
