Hi everyone. i have spent the past few weeks writing down my thoughts on my favorite class. I have enjoyed Hardcore since September 2012, and Witch Doctor fast became my favorite class. i decided to write this as a guide, a selection of some of the most effective and safe builds for hardcore. My hope is that this could and will be used by both newcomers and experienced Docs. I uploaded it to google documents. anyone is of course free to view it, but i am currently the only one who can edit it.
so as much as ive enjoyed hardcore, i wanted to give something back to one of the best communities ive been a part of.
i may also post the FAQ section after this post, just to clear up any problems people may have :). its safe to say this is not the only way to play this class, nor is it necessarily the best (and this information may be considered common knowledge to some), but it has served me well from my very first doc to paragon 100, and it is my hope that others may benefit, and enjoy the class as much as i have.
thanks for reading
