Nov 3 {Builds / Info} 2.3-2.4 RoS Witch Doctors "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, acid 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." _____________________________________ As we are aware, gear defines many builds for us in ROS, the exploration of hybrid builds, perfecting a particular build as gear synergies is what makes this game fun. I would say explore your build options, learn from posts here. ______________________________________ Patch Notes to date: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/game/patch-notes/ ______________________________________ CLANS: {VUDU} Clan Info http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/11914351693 _____________________________________ 2.3 Guides/Builds and Info ______________________________________ 2.3 Builds/Guides [GUIDE] How to properly gear a WD http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/17346234812?page=1 [GUIDE] 2.3: The Carnpendium http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/14527433038 A WD Compendium to the Grin Reaper http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/13140803953 Note: please keep checking thread for details as it will be updated. ______________________________________ Jade Build: [GUIDE] All-Inclusive Jade Harvester [2.0.6] http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/13138914261?page=1 [VUDU] Jade SH, DoT & Area Damage http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/12943834736#1 [2.0.5] Soul Harvest Spreadsheet https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AnWYdMuhMZ4-dGJKenVhcHI3eFFPVjBnT1NFN1o2RFE#gid=25 This is set as a view only, you can download to your own computers.

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.

1d Soul Harvest fails OK - I am raging right now. Make it to the RG in good time, but I repeatedly can't build stacks. Every time I try to cast Soul Harvest on a single target (i.e., RG), it does not harvest any stacks at all on the first cast. So until my cooldown kicks in, I have no stacks, and correspondingly have little offense and defense. EVERY SINGLE TIME. It is friggin impossible to do anything. Why is it not possible to even get a single stack? The second cast comes back with 2, but the 1 does not even register. Is anyone else experiencing this? I know they are changing the mechanics in the new patch, but until then, this is frustrating as all hell.Dante000 1d
2d How to nerf the top LoN WD build.... without 2 things: Touching the LoN bonus Nerfing top set builds I want a buff to the LoN builds but know that if the WD was not nerfed, there will be tears.ViolateThis16 2d
2d I dont think this have been brought up but if ur using zei's gem when playing jade build, doesnt the dots do increased damage the further away they are? Like if u cast dots and as you keep running, they will be more than 50 yards away from you which should make them take the full increased damage from the zei gem. And lets say they take 50% more damage when they are 50 yards away, shouldnt the dots deal more damage that in the end makes the harvest nuke do way more ? This makes sense to anyone?challereg6 2d
3d Arachyr's So I am in season and I understand that my gear is probably just not good but I cannot find out why my toughness is so low with this set. I know I a missing the harvester so it stops me from having 10 stacks of soul harvest but I don't see how the 5 stacks are going to just stop me from dying. Can anyone provide some insight for me on why I cannot seem to stay alive or why my toughness is so low with this set on? Anything would be appreciated. https://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Kerpshocker-1184/hero/92384350Kerpshocker1 3d
4d Poison Dart Build Hey guys, With all these buffs Blizzard is providing, does anyone else miss the Poison Dart build? It's been so long since this build has been played. I'm curious if anyone out there has played the build lately? As far as I know, this build was lacking "damage & survivability". It would be awesome to see this build rise up again.

Sep 15 Pet build aggro issues OK it is long past due for you to fix the damn agro issue with the WD pet builds. The single biggest reason they don't work well is that the pets go off and do whatever the !@#$ they want. Then we have to run back to pull them back to get them to focus on the mob we want thus losing a ton of time in G Rifts. Its stupid for it to have been a problem this long it is years over due to be fixed. No damn reason what so ever that the pets don't attack what your casting at especially with Acid Rain that hits such a large group. With the new patch your buffing pet damage but that wont do much good when the SOB pets don't stay on what you want them on in the first place. Its not such a issue if you play the builds where you just run through and kill elites and such so a short focus time then off and running which is boring as hell.Levi1 Sep 15
Sep 15 Help for Season 12 Helltooth There is so much more that I just don't know about this game, and i will ask a few questions that should help me get an idea for the coming season so I can get to eventually beat a GR80+ (currently GR75 is still highest). I do know that what I am about to ask will work for any class and any set because it is general basic info that I just don't know. These questions will revolve around the Helltooth Gargantuan build as an example so I will know what to do because I know I want to play that build in Season 12 to earn the final stash space that I was unable to do in Season 7. I am wanting to know how to do the following things in a manner that will enable me to as quickly and efficiently as possible, for a solo player, to be able to achieve not only the goal of the last stash space but also to beat GR 80+. I didn't mention GR90s because I have no desire to get on the GR leader boards. Legendary Gems I know it is important to level the main damage gem first. The Helltooth uses the following gems Bane of the Trapped, Bane of the Stricken, and Enforcer. 1.) Which one of the three above gems would be the main dps gem in that Gargantuan Helltooth build? 2. How high do I take that main dps gem before leveling the other two gems? 3. Is there any level separation between the main dps gem and the other two gems? if so how far of a separation is needed. Normal gems 4. When do I start ranking those up to flawless royals? Augments 5. When do I start augmenting gear? Paragons 6. When would I need to do paragon farming? 7. How much time should it take me to clear a GR when I would want to do some paragon farming?ShadowAegis1 Sep 15
Sep 14 Helltooth Garg newb So, I'm wanting to try different builds then the one I currently use (which is very fun, but has teetered out around Grift 45). And I'm am wanting to try the helltooth build, but I've a few questions. 1st, Zombie dogs, it's supposed to be the LoH rune, but my LoH is only ~8.5k, is that healing enough to loose 80% damage boost from burning dogs? 2nd, Piranha, is Piranhado that much better then WoM (because I love WoM). (my current build uses WoM, since it reaches so much, and can hit everything in Wall of Death's circle, and enemies that are running away, and I can use it if *i'm* running away) 3rd, is there a good/decent alternative to Spirit walk, because I'm bad at remembering to cast things like that, and it would decrease the loss of damage from the 2p set from moving. ps, I don't really have many Leg gems leveled up, just the ones I'm using. I already have the build's gems though.maydayp3 Sep 14

Below is the link to my hero profile https://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Caspro-2126/hero/97111354 This being a slight variation test i was trying last night. My regular cubed weapon is Soul Harvester, and usually Locust Swarm instead of the Hex as per the regular public build. With this in place, I cannot get beyond GR65; yet i see guides where I'm supposed to reach GR100 or so with this build. My question is, what am i missing ? Any thoughts ? Thanks in advance.Caspro5 Sep 11

My problem is... I now have all the 3 cube items, I also have full items on my char. Of course, the rolls are a little too the random site but... I was expecting to be able to clean T12, maybe T13 with what I already have? For some reason, I can't barely handle T10... Am I on the right path but just with bad rerolls? Am I not in a time where I can expect a little better clean times...? Or am I missing something all together...? Thank you for all comments on thiscondutas6 Sep 10

I think I have a good set of equipment now, but is the Helltooth Garg/Acid Cloud build just stupid for me to continue with? I have other sets, but am just used to this build now. Any advice would be great. Seems like when I check around online people just say it's easy at GR70 and thats about it.Planeswalker3 Sep 8

Sep 7 LoN Garg/Bat build and aquila cuirass Most of the non-dart LoN builds revolve around Garg/Bats, with sacred harvester and lakamba bracers in the cube.

Sep 4 Jade WD questions I have a few questions about jade wd and how the build works. Here goes... First of all, when using haunt and locusts, does it matter which runes im using on the skills when combined for harvest nuke? Like does all diffrent dot damage combine into the element i´ve chosen on harvest skill? Or will haunt do cold damage and locusts poison when nuked? Second question would be... While mobs are affected by locust and haunt, can the skills do crits which procs pain enhancer? If that works, then would all dots from pain enhancer also be included to the harvest nuke? And since the gem does physical dot damage, will it change into cold damage if i use lanquish on harvest for example? To make matters simple, No matter what kind of dot damage it is, be it pain enhancer, toxic gem, locust or haunt, ALL damage should be converted into the element you choose for harvest. Jade set gives all runes to harvest if i remember correctly, but you can still choose the type of element by choosing a rune. I´d be glad to recieve a full explanation from a blue if possible. Thanks for reading.challereg3 Sep 4
Sep 2 Jade and CoE When using Jade with CoE, does the damage of my DoTs get amplified on my CoE cycle regardless of whether I harvest, or does it only get amplified when I harvest on cycle? In other words, on my CoE cycle should I prioritize harvesting or DoTing enemies?Ronin0013 Sep 2

Sep 2 ZDPS WD? Obviously we have some builds that are pretty outstanding at doing damage in groups, but the gear is pretty intense to finish those builds, and I was wondering in the meantime how I might go about building a zdps WD? I play with 2 Necros atm, one who is using the corpse lance build and the other who is using some terrible blood nova build so he basically doesn't count. I imagine it starts with Starmetal + slamdance?jonjw192 Sep 2
Sep 1 Witch Doctor Versions of Necro Spells? If its true, can someone point out the skills that the Witch Doctor uses that are Necro Spells? I use Skeletons, Goggle, Corpse Explosion, Siphon Blood, Bone Spikes and Skeletal Mages. Are there facsimiles for these? TYIARatso1 Sep 1

Aug 29 Lon Barber WD in 2.6.1 patch and Meta. Will Lon Barber wd still be in the 4 man meta in patch 2.6.1 or you think it will be replaced by another class? Also anyone know if we have a mask of jeram at 100% pet dmg does that automatically goto 200% once they up the damage to equal what it was before basically? Barbarian: "Might of the Earth (6) Set Increase the damage of Earthquake, Avalanche, Leap, Ground Stomp, Ancient Spear and Seismic Slam by 1200% 3000%." will leapquake barb replace LON barber WD in 4 man meta?SubzerorE3 Aug 29
Aug 28 WD Spirit Barrage after Exploit Good afternoon, After the fix of exploit, I noticed that my WD Spirit Barrage is suffering more damage than before. Nothing has changed in the char, or items, or passive, nothing. Before the exploit, I used 85 GR quietly, and relatively fast. After the fix of exploit, I won't be alive in GR85. The impression is as if some skill was missing. I've checked the char several times, and it's all right, as before. Could use some help in this matter. Thank you.Viper1 Aug 28
Aug 28 Helltooth Build, 5th choice for passive? Hi there, after taking a year or two break, I just picked up D3 again and am playing my first season. I have received the Helltooth season set, and am currently on GR27, but I can probably push up about 5 levels higher as I'm not really having any issues. To my question, I just crafted an intelligence Hellfire amulet and rolled "Gain the midnight feast passive"! It was one of the passives I was using, so I'm trying to decide what to replace it with. Given the following build, what would you pick? Thanks! Actives: *Wall of death, Communing with Spirits *Piranhas, Piranhado *Spirit Walk, Jaunt *Soul Harvest, Languish *Zombie Dogs, Leeching Beasts *Gargantuan, Humongoid Passives: *Midnight Feast (Needs replaced!!!) *Spirit Vessel *Confidence Ritual *Grave Injustice I appreciate any and all opinions :)DinduNuffin4 Aug 28
Aug 26 Zunimassa or Helltooth for Pet Build So, I have asked a number of people which is a better pet build for hardcore. I get Zunimassa from one clannie and Helltooth from two others. I'd like people's opinions on which is better in hardcore, Zunimassa or Helltooth?CaladynusOD27 Aug 26

Aug 24 Buff SuWong Diviner & The Grin Reaper! I miss the old Mimic spam build & it would be awesome if it got a good buff. I would suggest something like this for the two items. The Grin Reaper - Chance when attacking to summon horrific Mimics that cast some of your equipped skills, you and your mimics also deal 100-150% increased damage. SuWong Diviner - Acid Cloud gains the effect of the Lob Blob Bomb rune and has its damage increased by 250-300%. I think this would be a good enough buff too bring this build back too life.I3lackDahlia3 Aug 24
Aug 23 Why do i leep dying in 4man? Hey there, Please take a look at my LoN 4man build for WD (meta build rly) and tell me why i die 5-10 times even when playing GR95. I'm currently leveling a bunch of gems to 100 to put in my gear which is the last thing i can do to make him tankier. Could a bunch of extra int really make it possible for me to facetank anything in even gr120s once i stand in the monk field?OwNzOr2 Aug 23
Aug 22 BBV With an SMK you can put down several BBV's at the same time, but do you get the full benefit from standing in any BBV area or do you have to stand in the same area as your pets?Wolfways14 Aug 22
Aug 22 Soul harvest stack/refresh like Bone armor? Hi when playing the Necro you can get up to 10 (ok 15 with amulet) stacks of Bone armor just like Soul harvest. When you are at full stacks it is possible to just refresh the stacks from one enemy. This gameplay feels much smoother than Soul harvest. Why are they acting different for the same mechanic? Are you considering adjusting soul harvest or is the logic that a demon, spider, ghost is more likely to have more bones than souls? Or would it be too powerful if it was easier to keep full stacks?shroom12 Aug 22
Aug 21 Question about Wormwood Does the proc on wormwood (Locust Swarm is cast on a nearby enemy every second.) works if used by other class (wizard)? The reason I ask is because I want to level a Wizard in season 2 and figure if I put on wormwood with gem of ease can I just run around killing everything?Gibon3 Aug 21
Aug 20 Why does my Pirahnado not work in GRs So I am literally currently in the middle for farming a GR 80 with my LoN WD, and I have noticed this for pretty much everything above torment 13, but my Pirahnado doesn't suck in any mobs... it literally does not work in GR 70+. I watch videos of other WDs doing like GR 100+ or something and their Pirahnado actually pulls in enemies. I have no idea what is happening nor why my Piranahado isn't working properly. I feel it is really hindering my ability to push the leaderboards. Edit: before I get people telling me what mobs the spell is supposed to and not supposed to work on I want to respecify, it pulls in nothing; I can throw it at a mob of white bugs or something and nothing gets cced EVER 100% of the time for the entire season up until now.ObeyGiant9 Aug 20
