May 16, 2012 Vetting a Hero: the Witch Doctor It can be difficult to choose which hero you want to take into battle against the legions of the Burning Hells. To help inform your decision we’ve compiled all of the gameplay and story information you need broken down by class. Barbarian Demon Hunter Monk Wizard The Witch Doctor Witch doctors are spiritual warriors who summon dead souls and crawling creatures to do their bidding. By surrounding themselves with conjured zombies and vermin, witch doctors are free to assault their enemies with exploding skulls, acrid poison clouds, and wasting curses. The ability to infect, slow and terrify their enemies gives witch doctors unprecedented control over a battlefield. They can manipulate opposing attacks and movements with debuffs and crowd control spells, rendering enemies easy prey for hungry pets. Witch doctors can also lay down fields of fire and venom that slowly leech life from advancing foes. Although some witch doctors avoid melee combat in favor of augmenting their pets and crippling their enemies from afar, they are also more than capable of slaying weakened foes with their own hands.

PC, or Proc Rate) is a game mechanic in Diablo III used to compensate for some skills' ability to hit more than once during its use. All skills have a 0 to 1 Proc Coefficient, which controls the effectiveness of certain 'on hit' affixes, like life on hit, for that particular skill. The coefficient reduces either the effectiveness of the triggered special property (such as the amount of Life regained), or the chances to trigger this effect, if plainly reducing it is not possible. Typically, skills that can only hit one target will have this coefficient equal (or very close) to 1, meaning the affix will trigger ("proc") on (nearly) every hit. Some skills, usually those that deal damage independently from the player's actions, like pets, have a proc coefficient of 0, meaning the skill will never proc the 'on hit' affix. Damage over time and area of effect skills generally have very low proc coeffients, but since they can hit many targets at once, or the same target many times in succession, this is more or less balancing the total chances. A basic attack always has a PC of 1, regardless of the weapon type equipped. The PC only affects special effects, and not the damage done. Area Damage and many other effects also ignore PC. Moreover, each skill's own 'chance on hit' effects, including those that are granted by the skill runes, are generally not affected by the Proc Coefficient.

8h So Does Cube Roll a Sacred Harvester? I have now rolled over 60 rare ceremonial knives without getting a single Sacred Harvester nor has one dropped for me in game. Am I just wasting materials here?evok8 8h
8h Jade squishiness I've been proccing Spirit Vessel while going in for the initial Soul Harvest stacks. Once I get going it's fine but if I die or fight a rift guardian without adds it's too easy to get one-shot right after reviving. I'm having trouble going beyond GR80 because of this. Is this just how Jade is right now or is there something I'm missing? It's been a while since I played WD.squarcle15 8h

13h Staff of Chiroptera I'm surprised that more people aren't interested in the Staff of Chiroptera which makes firebats attack 100% faster and cost 74% less mana. It effectively makes firebats no longer a spender, opening up another skill slot. I get there are some better options depending on what build you want, but it seems slept on.Ravemaster5 13h
15h Best Witch Doctor set in your opinion? I was wondering what everyone's favorite WD set is. Right now, I'm rocking the spider queen one which is cool and all but it doesn't "feel" like the best one or one that will get me far in GR. Helltooth looks cool and jade harvester looks interesting. Don't know much on zumies. Any tips/ideas?GetDeesed26 15h
1d Please fix Wall of Zombies The ring of poison and fire wall runes for Wall of Zombies really don't feel voodoo at all. They just seem like generic elemental variants with no flavor. Please bring the zombies back into wall of zombies. One idea could be a wall of burning corpses (for fire wall) or zombies puking out poison onto your enemies (for ring of poison).LordPhilly5 1d
2d help i need some helpful advice i have helltooth and am having trouble getting past gr77all but a couple of items are ancient ive farmed for hours trying to get items with better rolls and seem unable to do that kadala is of no use im not sure how to put profile in here i just need some friendly advice pleaseM8877E1 2d
2d Paragon 1500 cant pass GR86 Hello guys i recently started playing with wd and i think i have pretty good gear but i cant seem to pass gr86..i dont die a lot but i think i lack in damage.. Am i missing something critical at my gear or at gameplay?Leontokardos6 2d
3d where to spend blood shards after full BIS? Do I just try to get ancient gear of each piece? How can I tell which piece is going to give me more survivalbility that is what I am lacking most atm.Bactyrael10 3d
3d Help making sense of it all So I've been playing D3 again for a month now, some solo, some with friends. I have to admit to being at a loss with all of the math involved, and I used to think I was a smart guy. I play on the xbox one, so my profile isn't here. I'm trying to understand the base damage and multipliers right now. I've watched one of the youtube vids, and tried the google docs spreadsheet, but it lists dexterity and not intelligence. I don't know if there is a good one for WDs right now or not. I've got a HT set now, and The Tormentor with a +270 gem in it. With a stroke of luck today, I got a SH and already had the HP off hand, which is apparently one of the best combos. Every number I look at says it's a big loss in damage going from The Tormentor to SH + HP, but I know they don't tell the whole story. Below are links to my setup. I would greatly appreciate any help in understanding this, and any other tips to obvious mistakes I may have in my setup. I'm not using poison dart (jaunt in it's place) and the paragon is not accurate any more, but it's close enough. I hear a lot of talk about rerolling stuff as well. I don't know if that means using the cube to "reforge a legendary" or using the enchanter to get a better option. # Tormentor http://www.d3planner.com/415514524 # SH + HP http://www.d3planner.com/455833603Captain4 3d
3d Critique my S8 WD PirateKing If anyone wanna critique my season 8 witch doctor for me that would be awesome. I haven't played diablo 3 since season 3 and now I'm jumping back in with a witch doctor. I don't want to just follow a build per se, I find my current build has a lot of synergy, tear thru t6 with firebats essentially costing nothing as a primary. Still working toward enforcer gem and my rorg, but I'm looking for help with my rolls. Also any advice I guess, the game has definitely evolved. ThxRavemaster0 3d
4d Arachyr's Cold build concept so I rolled a WD this season, but I've only been a mostly casual Diablo player in recent years. i have all the pieces to my Arachyr set and I was experimenting with a build that's only cold damage, I'm just curious if anyone runs anything similar or has any feedback on how they think it will do later game. I can currently solo GR 20 with extreme ease, and I haven't tested it in group play much yet. any thoughts or feedback is appreciated. Skills- Corpse Spiders-medusa spiders Haunt- resentful spirits Locust Swarm- devouring swarm Hex- hedge magic Piranhas- frozen piranhas Fetish Army- fetish ambush passives- creeping death, grave injustice, spirit vessel, vision quest Kanais- weapon-rimeheart, armor-frostburn, no ring yet key items- arachyr set, ring of emptiness are only required so far. key points- the chance to freeze from Frosburn syncs with literally all the damage in the build, Hex keeps you healthy and provides extra tankiness, when enemies do freeze the constant ticks of damage from haunt, locust swarm, and corpse spiders gives Rimehart a good proc chance for big damage spikes, and the chill effects give good kiting against most mobs I've fought so far. against boss mobs and Rift Guardians only one Haunt and Locust needs to be casted due to creeping death, and the Locust rune keeps your mana super full during longer engagements. spamming piranhas at every opportunity and popping Fetish Army up close for the burst as they are summoned are your big hitters as far as burst, but this build is all about continuous damage and CC while playing from distance. for Gems i will probably run Iceblink, Bane of the Trapped. not sure on a third, im assuming as i level farther i will need at least one defensive ring. any feedback would be great, or even just general thoughts or advice, I really want to see if I can make this build work. anyone with the items I recommend trying it, it's actually quite a lot of fun. cheersEglerion7 4d
4d Help on new player Hi all, I just started playing D3 back after a long break and find it interesting in playing season 8. However, based on my current gears, which difficulty should I be heading to right now? And legendaries are pretty easy to farm now!RandyC1 4d
4d Perdition I am really struggling against this rift boss. I struggle so much that I end up leaving the game and I don't even finish the gr. I run away from his orbs, but his pounce always gets me, and he will do it before my spirit walk is back up to dodge it again. You can't line of sight him, he really is a pain. I'm running helltooth garg build. Any tips would help greatly, thank you.WickedOdie3 4d
4d Is SMK useless now? Hi. I couldn't find the answer to this so I was wondering if ppl who are much more knowledgeable than me could clue me in. Ever since the Zuni set got the 2 piece set bonus for the fetishes, I haven't seen any SMK builds floating around, especially for seasons. I know it is still technically useful for BBV but... is there a point to it now other than that? If there is still a use for SMK, can you point me to a build that would make sense for the current game version? Otherwise I don't see why the item would keep its super rare status. Thanks.BadHorsie7 4d
4d TnT vs. Jeram (Cube Q) Hello All, I am curious if it is generally more beneficial to use a weaker TnT (cubing Jeram) versus a weak Jeram (while cubing TnT). I understand that the Jeram's ancient property is stronger than TnT's for Garg build's but I'm unsure where to draw the line. Can see my items below, thanks. http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Ghostpos-1230/hero/37251674Ghostpos7 4d

6d Left Click? Uh oh.. I'm running a HT WD at the moment and love it, but I have a question... Do I need to have Piranha's set to my left click in order for it to be recognized as a primary skill from the HT set? I currently have is set to 1, can I keep it that way or have I been missing out on a ton of damage because of my weak bindings?PkhBasko2 6d

Nov 28 What dmg is acceptable for pet build on t13? I'm getting extremely frustrated and can see now the reason I stopped playing for so long. My WD deals 1.8 mil damage with buffs, yet anytime I join t13 because everyone around me is paragon 1000-2000 I get kicked. Solely because I'm paragon 775. How can I get to paragon 1000, when I can't play to get the XP? I can do t13, easily without dying. I keep just soloing GR by myself but it's not getting me near enough XP as I do with a group. It is so discouraging.Arrogantus12 Nov 28
Nov 27 New WD Player asking for guidance. Hi guys, I'm a new Diablo player. I decided to go with WD and so far I'm in love with this class, however, I would like to get some help from the community about how to gear, which builds are best for completing the season journey. I just got the 6 piece Arachyr set, but can't get passed T6 difficulty without getting one-shoted LOL. Anyways, I would appreciate some help/guidance :)Arepa30003 Nov 27
Nov 27 Fetish Sycophants? Hey Everyone, Just a quick question about WD builds. I haven't played in a while, so please bear with me. I noticed that for passive abilities, basically everyone runs Pierce the Veil and Grave Injustice, but while there's some variability in the other two (usually midnight feast), pretty much no one runs Fetish Sycophants, and I was just wondering why that was, since when I used to play a year and half ago or so, they seemed to be pretty good in terms of damage output. Is it just because you need more survivability at higher grifts or something?pikklez6 Nov 27

Nov 26 Zunimasa Ideas I think it would be appropriate for the Devs to look into changing the Zunimasa set. I believe that currently it is pretty bland, changing one of the most powerful WD skills, Fetish Army, into a passive (by making them permanent). This does not make for fun game play for many people. While this set does make the skill much more powerful, it does so at the price of a skill button, which, in Diablo, is extremely important. I propose that instead of making Fetish Army permanent, it makes sycophants permanent. It also should boost the damage of Fetish army. This way it could allow for more synergy with items like Starmetal Kukri, Gidbinn (if you do not want to use the fetish sycophants passive), and Visage of Giyua. In the past, two of the aforementioned items (starmetal Kukri and Visage of Giyua) were useless because if one would already have a army out. The somewhat popular Darts build (Dagger of Darts+Carnevil) would still be viable by making the sycophants be able shoot darts. This change would make the Zunimasa set more fun and viable, allowing for even more diversity of builds.LordPhilly1 Nov 26

Nov 25 Help with Greater Rift Hi guys i come here because i have a big issue, i cant pass from gr73. I try 5 times, 2 times i exit because have low monsters and imposible to make the time always on my side and the other 3 times i get Rakanot and Eskandiel, every time i try to kill or i reach boss always kill me in 1 hit. Always i try to stay in long range and leave the pets on the boss, but every time jump on me and kill me or they drop me arcane on me or kill me with the skill they have. Not easy to search videos for helltooth gargantuan build on gr75, at least for search strategy or what way they fight with boss, i going to leave my profile down there and if any see something wrong or something i need to change or anything i doing wrong please tell me it going to help me alot. I trying to get the stash, i need the last conquest or i get gr75 or i need to kill the bosses on 20 minutes, only this two ways i have. http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/co0kies-1878/hero/80934052 Another thing, i know the gargantuan ring dont have a good chd, but at least is something, the Amulet i have doesnt have cc i know that but is the only drop i have, the gloves i have two one this i use and another with int + chd + cc + ad, i change it because they give me same dmg but %14 more armor and i think if i going to go 70+ i going to need more armor.co0kies7 Nov 25
Nov 24 Back after break, need feedback pet build Hi, I been playing D3 since day one of its release. Took a long break and am coming back. I am not a person who chooses the strongest build. Instead, I play a preferred build and style, and see how far I can take it. I came back 2 days ago, and am trying to make a short and tall mans finger, helltooth build work. I am trying a "pets do it all" or almost all, style, where I spend most of my time running around while the 4 pets kill everything. http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Odif-1302/hero/57627567 In combat i cast soul harvest, horrify, and wall of death all at the same time, then run around till they off cooldown, then repeat. I am always moving, which means i take less damage. (I laugh at mortar!) This is my first attempt at helltooth, so I only have the rather weak helltooth gear I happened to have in stock. The lack of offensive self cast spells, means i have virtually no leech, so I am using Gizzard for life regen. Enforcer seems obvious, Bane of the trapped seems superior to bane of the stricken, as I read pets dont proc stricken. Not sure what rune to use for the dog, using rabid dogs for superior single target dps. Ideally I would get an ancient dagger that has that "10 stacks of Soul Harvest" but I dont have an ancient one yet, let alone a good one. What I have noticed so far: Rift bosses just MELT! That big dog is crazy good vs rift bosses. I struggle with wide open spaces and lots of little spread out mobs. Only 4 pets, and only 3 with cleave. Ever since I swapped out Tasker and Theo for Aquila Cuirass, my survivability is fine, and I still kill lots faster than my previous LoN dagger of darts build. (I got sick of DoD, sore finger from holding down the darts key.) Anyway, looking for feedback, but remember, this is not for best build, but for best build that uses tall/short mans finger AND lets the pets do the damage while my toon runs around. Thanks.Odif9 Nov 24
Nov 24 2 Firebats WD's in a 4 man? hello, i am trying to understand if lest say 2 Archyrs WD's will clash with each other, meaning haunts and locusts canceling out , like Ulinanas monks a few seasons ago , and if they dont , will ones Locust be enough for second and haunt as well, meaning if one of WD's cast , will it work for the other? thank you.Kondratus7710 Nov 24

Nov 22 Arachyr/Helltooth Firebats SOLO/GROUP guides Hey guys! I recently updated/recreated my Firebats guides, as meta has "streamlined" some stuff a bit. http://www.diablofans.com/builds/84100-s8-arachyr-firebats-solo-group-gr90-110 http://www.diablofans.com/builds/84101-s8-helltooth-firebats-solo-group-gr95-110 will be doing a video for solo helltooth firebats soon as well. Overall, in s7 Gr100 solo has been reached with Helltooth Firebats, as it has more toughness. Arachyr however, shines in group, as you can channel longer and recover life faster. Both sets did 110+ in s7 groups, with Arachyr ahead. You can see both SOLO and GROUP setups in the builds, with SOLO setup displayed by defaultAngry51 Nov 22

Nov 19 Patch 2.4 Thorns WD GR90 Hello there guys, http://postimg.org/image/gxiyhgah5/ Wanted to share with you my thorns WD. My pc is complete crap so i am not in the situation that i can make a video from the clear. You can review my gear and skills used on the PTR boards, im rank 9 atm, highest non-carnevil. Credits for inspiration goes to Hezeth, which is ranked 12 on the ptr board atm. For the people unable to log PTR but still interested in my setup: Gear used - Hf ammy, LoN, Leorics crown, profane pauldrons, lakumbas ornament, heart of iron, st. archew gage, pox faulds, fire walkers, blackthorne`s belt, deadly rebirth, wilkens reach. Cubed: Hack, aquila`s cuirass, CoE. Skills: Jaunt, languish, haunt - poisoned spirit, nado, grasp of the dead - unbreakable grasp, mass conf -paranoia. Passives: Spirit vessel, grave injustice, gruesome feast, confidence ritual - HF swampland I use deadly rebirth/walken reach combo since i tried to find a skill in the WD arsenal that has a great AS component. AS seems to directly influence on how much thorns damage you can dish out. I`ve tried acid cloud/bears/firewall and it didn't work. Grasp of the dead spam does seem to work, to the magnitude of firewalker ground patch numbers which leads me to believe the higher AS component for firewalkers to proc thorns is intended and not a bug. I did use a bugged item, st. archews but when the shield wasn't up i had no problems to stay alive since i run with 450m toughness on average. So when St. archew will get fixed, thorn WD will have the upper hand on carnevil/jade. I`d like to invite you to try out this build and get some feedback on idea`s and tips that might work with thorns as i'm kinda oblivious to its mechanics right now:) Thank youTelamon62 Nov 19
Nov 19 Arachyr 2p Hello, new to WD here. Does the Arachyr 2p spider queen damage buffed by its 6p? According to http://diablo.wikia.com/wiki/Spirit_of_Arachyr it does buff the queen damage from 800% to 10400% per tick. But when I test it out in game, it doesn't. Is this a known bug or am I missing something here?Cutha0 Nov 19
Nov 18 Wormwood question So, I have Wormwood extracted in cube and activated. Does this negate the need for Locust Swarm as a casted ability? The swarm seems to spread like normal, but am I getting all the bonuses to the ability granted from items and set bonuses? Thanks, I'm new to WD.Strizzi3 Nov 18
