Sep 23 Zunimassa Shoulder Isn't it about time we had a Zuni shoulder piece? The head piece is too important for the masks, but the ring slot is also very important to builds. Zuni needs a shoulder piece instead of, or in addition to, a ring.Wolfways6 Sep 23

Sep 21 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 Sep 21
Sep 20 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 Sep 20
Sep 19 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 Sep 19

Sep 15 WD PTR notes are wacky The new PTR patch notes that came out on 9/13/17 are insane for WD will those go live, I mean that would put WD above all other classes? This is wacky but awesome at the same time.GOLDFARMER3 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
Sep 14 2.6.1. WD Builds I read Jade has been buffed in 2.6.1 PTR, which is cool. However, my favorite play style is Helltooth, anyone knows if PTR helped this set? Thank you much.Gannicus2 Sep 14

Sep 13 Jade Harvester not working Just like the title says, my jade harvester somehow does not work. I watched other people's videos and did exactly as they did, but the 6 piece set bonus does not apply for me. I applied haunt, then locust swarm, and finally I did my soul harvest but the 300 second worth damage somehow does not happen. Plz, someone help me...Lucranhas2 Sep 13

Sep 12 Primal Manajuma's Knife re-roll advice Hi all, Recently cubed a Primal Manajuma's Carving Knife https://i.gyazo.com/22cb45593ad203cded8b7f58299eb1b7.png Looking for some re-roll advice, I'll be using it on my chicken helltooth build. Question is do I re-roll the life per hit / increased mana regen, and if so, should I go for AD or 10% weapon damage? Thanks all!DracZ1 Sep 12

Sep 11 Need advice (LoN Build) Hola, Need some tips on the LoN build. 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
Sep 10 struggling soo much, LON SB WD Hello there misters and ladies! https://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/condutas-2364/hero/98860696 Thats my current LoN Spirit Barrage Witch doctor build. https://www.icy-veins.com/d3/lon-spirit-barrage-witch-doctor-bis-gear-gems-paragon-points I am trying too follow that build close too the hearth... 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

Sep 8 GR70 Help I'm trying to solo GR70 and just can't keep up. I think my main issue is my weapons are too weak, but I'm just getting back into playing over the last month or so and I'm not sure. 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. How do people keep up the aquila cuirass bonus without the firebats staff and cindercoat in the cube? I'm constantly running out of mana while channeling/casting pirhanado, and never have the aquila cuirass bonus up.kaerrevival9 Sep 7
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

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 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 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)?

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

Aug 18 Need LoN WD help Hey guys, I need some help with my WD. I practice alot and play a ton. I did a grift 80 and that was before adding the 7 augments I have now. I can't go any higher. I die 1-2 hits, my damage is trash. I can't seem to get enough enemies together in a pile to do damage. My friends WD has less damage and worse gear and no augments and hes doing grift 85 pretty easily. Anyone have any tips for me? Please don't be rude. I really want to progress.Bilefloat6 Aug 18
Aug 18 LoN Spirit Barrage damage type Hello all, I was wondering if anyone could help me out. I am running an LoN Spirit barrage build. I currently have Voo's Juicer cubed, which gives me access to the 'Phlebotemize' and 'Spirit is Willing' rune which both do cold damage. On the skill itself I have chosen the 'Well of Souls' rune which does fire damage. Additionally, my gazing demise mojo gives me the phantasm rune as well, which also does cold damage. If I wanted to increase a damage type, should I focus on fire or cold in this case?Mythras2 Aug 18

Aug 17 WD PTR Changes It looks like quite a few items are getting buffed or changed. With the damage boost to MoJ and Small mans finger, Im left wondering why the lackluster Tall mans finger isn't getting updated. It would be nice to have a reason to want to use it. Currently SMF is an obvious choice over TMF and now with SMF getting a buff, TMF will be even further from peoples thoughts. I for one love the idea of a large dog doing heaps of single target damage, I really hope they decide to make this ring competitive again.Ham3 Aug 17
Aug 17 no fetish love ?? so short man finger will buff gargs even more and STILL nothing for fetish ?? except for mask of jeram ??Rydiaa9 Aug 17
Aug 16 Are the changes to SMF a buff? Question: Are the changes to the short man's finger a buff? In other words, what would the current %buff be if you reworded the current SMF power as in the 2.6.1 PTR patch notes? The new wording for SMF is: Gargantuan instead summons three smaller gargantuans that have their damage increased by 500-650%. Any idea what the old power was worth? The old phrase "each more powerful than before" doesn't tell us.Ivan4 Aug 16
Aug 16 Ok this is terrible Grift 86 I get to rift guardian with 3 and a half minutes left. After spamming spirit barrage on him for 2 and a half minutes hes down to 90% hp. After 3 and a half minutes I fail the timer and he's at 75% hp.... How in hell do people push 86+ with this build?Bilefloat5 Aug 16
Aug 16 Things I'd like to see. A new ring that buffs the single garg (without changing the size). Or just change the SMF so that the gargs are normal size (I hate tiny gargs!) Change the currently useless Gidbinn to release Bone Fetishes that run to the nearest enemy and explode: https://diablo2.diablowiki.net/Bone_Fetish A buff to Fetish damage via the Zunimassa set or Belt of Transcendence so that gargs are not needed to be able to do some damage. There you go Blizzard. Get to work on them please. ;) Edit: Oh yeah, almost forgot. I'd also like a Zunimassa shoulder piece please.Wolfways0 Aug 16
