Diablo® III

Please help me perfect my witch doctor! new player

Hey guys!

I Bought this game 4 days ago and my second legendary ever was a 1325 dps manticore with 185 dex 90% crit and 2 os that I sold for 1.4 bil.

I invested 850m into my gear after searching forums for what types of items to buy and what stats are best. I spent yesterday browsing the auction house in search for a new set of gear.

Are there any specific items I should upgrade? I know my zuni ring is weak I Got it for like 1m. Do you think I did well with my budget? Keep in mind I basically just bought items that were up for a reasonable price so I did not spend days/weeks trying to snipe amazing deals.

Thanks!

For Witch Doctor specific discussions, your best bet is to post in the Witch Doctor forum, so I'm going to go ahead and move your thread on over there. :)

I Could of easily beat 200k dps by going with innas pants, a tal rasha chest, mempo etc. But They rely a ton on mana regen so you need the 4 piece zuni. Also, fully self buffed im around 400k dps. I have 80k hp with a low paragon and im still trying to craft good gloves with even more vit.


You did get a blue bite, so i'll give you 5/10 for your trolling.

First, if you ain't trolling, grats you lucky bastard.

I do think you get something wrong. You can't go GI/GF without any pickup radius, go get a Thing of the Deep for daily farming.

Which doctors are kind of weird. I Could of easily beat 200k dps by going with innas pants, a tal rasha chest, mempo etc. But They rely a ton on mana regen so you need the 4 piece zuni. Also, fully self buffed im around 400k dps. I have 80k hp with a low paragon and im still trying to craft good gloves with even more vit. I thought I did decent gearing up :(


I think you have done pretty good with your gear choices. Nice chest!!

The thing that sticks out the most to me is that your zuni ring has no CC and your gloves are so/so...and as someone above me stated, you need a thing of the deep for lower mp runs. I use a ToTD when running speed runs...i find the pick up radius invaluable. If you're going to run higher mp's, you need mana regen on your offhand and perhaps a SOJ with its +mana will come in handy

I think you did great with your budget, especially considering how new you are to the class. It took me well over 1.4b to crack 200k dps -- that's just the nature of the class.

Given the gear you already have I'd say you should start saving for super high end items. You should be looking to spend at least a couple hundred mil on your next upgrade so you get enough of a boost out of it. Like many have mentioned, your Pox is the best place to start. If I were you I'd save for a long as possible and try to get an amazing one -- spending 500+m on it. Your gear is so good you don't really have a reason to be in a hurry for an upgrade.

Id have sold it for 250 dollars and called it a game.

I have been playing off and on since the game came out.
The most i have sold a found item for is 20 mil.

If you are telling the truth, I am so envious I am gonna explode!
