Jul 2 Jade Harvest! How other WDs kill RG? Started playing Harvest build few days ago, becouse i was frustrated with Necro blood set, and now I'm stuck at rift level 80 becouse i can't kill boss in time. I manage to kill elites in about 10 minutes so there is 4-5 minutes left for guardian - which should be a plenty of time, but i never manage to pull it off. Tactics: 1. Rift boss is Perdition or Ice Blink - leave/repeat :D 2. Rift boss is killable - kiting it and spaming haunt, waiting jaunt cooldown and CoE poison rotation to make piranhado/pestilence/haunt/harvest combo. 1. Two peaces of my gear aren't ancient. 2. No, I didn't craft Caldesann's Despair on any part of my gear yet. Could that be a problem? Any help is much appreciated.Azriel1 Jul 2
Jul 2 Zuni garg upper limits Hello everybody, got a simple question. I have 8 or 9 level 85+ augments and was wondering if the Zuni set was worth using them on. Currently my MH archon wiz does GR 80 in 3.5-4.5 minutes. Is zuni capable of similar speed farming? How does it hold up 85+? https://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Gbrav13-1250/hero/32255155 That is the baseline Im working with, obviously not BIS gear yet. I was building up these augments for the Necro, but it seems clear it wont be in a great state on release, and I have always liked WD as my main alternate. Thank you!Gbrav137 Jul 2

Jun 30 Hand disability - WD largely passive? Hey folks, I have a neurological problem with my hands. In the past, I have found D3 challenging because of all the movement required. With the WD, is it possible to have a build where summons do the majority of tanking and fighting for you, allowing you to stay somewhat stationary? I enjoy this game on a casual level, nothing serious or too competitive. I asked this on the Necro forums, but was told that the pets require a lot of re-summoning, and that WD might be a better option. Thanks for any advice!Goatleaker3 Jun 30
Jun 29 Skill Items for Witch Doctor I am going to search this website for what Legendary (not set) items that have a specific skill associated with them and compose a list of them here. Give me a second to Edit this post with the related skill from these legendary items. I am doing this to assist people in finding gear if they want to attempt a build using these items. Finished - There are some universal items that i didn't include in the list like https://us.battle.net/d3/en/item/obsidian-ring-of-the-zodiac because it can literally be anything and nothing specific. I included belt-of-transcendence because not everything uses resources although it can be use for a great number of skill along with Frost burn and the like that have "General" buffs to skills. Note these are not things you can re-roll with the mystic and are hard wired into the gear itself.

Jun 27 Looking for gameplay / build advice Hi there, WD is my least played class and I recently started to play around with it a bit more. I got 2 builds to work for me (Jade and Zunni Gargs), but I'm struggling with the other options, so I'm looking for advice on them. My goal with these would be to comfortably farm GR70-75 (with 1500 paragons and lvl70 augments) ... here we go: 1. Helltooth non-pet builds: Acid Cloud or Zombie Bears? I tried an Acid Cloud build but the full rotation with Wall of Death, Haunt, Locust Swarm and Acid Cloud feels really, really clunky and I also have serious toughness issues. Are the Zombie Bears easier to play with? Is this a build to do GR70-75 in a reasonable (i.e. 6 min and faster) time? 2. Arachyr Firebat: does it work soloing with Staff of Chiroptera? I don't want to use Soul Harvester on this build, because I have a nice ancient Chiroptera (and use SH on my other WD for Jade/Zunni). But with a 2H and no Mojo it seems the toughness is really lacking - are there any ways around it? Keeping up the 4pc. bonus with Hex+activating RoE seems again to be super clunky. 3. Activating Ring of Emptiness: If I understand correctly I will get the damage bonus for mobs that are effected by both Haunt *and* Locus Swarm, right? So I need to cast both of those skills if I don't have a Wormwood somewhere, right? How does the rotation look like and how do you approach the gameplay correctly with say, Firebats? When I try to do it with the Firebats build it seems to always be super clunky and I die a lot trying to gather mobs and cast a few skills before channeling. Some advice on how this actually can smoothly work would be appreciated. Generally I seem to struggle with the RoE mechanic, as the 2 builds that work for me don't require it (Zunni doesn't gain much from RoE and in my Jade build I have Wormwood in the cube). Is it just a learning curve to get the rotation down with Soul Harvest / Haunt / Locust Swarm + at least one more skill and/or are there any tricks to it that I don't know yet? I'd like to explore all the WD sets and get them to work for me so any general gameplay advice on WD is appreciated :)Shiimiish2 Jun 27
Jun 26 Gidbinn / Zuni 4p interaction Hi all, I'm writing this thread because early in the season the best weapon I had found was an ancient gidbinn, and I wanted to know if it was worth keeping/gifting based on whether it would add fetishes that count towards the zunimassa 4p bonus. When I asked in the WD community in-game, nobody answered, and now, most of the season later having not found a better ancient weapon, I'm reporting the results of some of my tests. 1. Fetishes procced by the gidbinn do NOT generate an icon/stack count next to your character icon 2. Fetishes procced by the gidbinn DO add to your (additive) DR stack with zunimassa 3. When using my full set up, i.e., fetish army, belt of transcendence, WITHOUT gidbinn I reach added DR of +~69% (sometimes sheet displays it as a strange decimal such as 68.97) 4. The highest DR I've been able to witness with full set-up running AND gidbinn was +75% DR, so 2 additional fetishes. However, given the point below and the difficulty in proccing the gidbinn while opening the character sheet to view my resistances data, its possible that it would peak as high as 78% given that I know 3 fetishes can spawn. 5. However, without full set up running, using just the gidbinn without fetish army/belt of transcendence (to make it easier to count fetishes) I was able to observe 3 fetishes at a time, although the 3rd would frequently die/despawn and then a new one be procced, so whatever the proc rate is, it is low enough that my minimal attack speed increases can barely reach 3 simultaneous procs. 6. I have seen more than 3 only rarely and not with the set up I am currently using. NOTES: All observations were made by spamming haunt - poisoned spirit with my full current equipment set up except for belt of transcendence (and no fetishes summoned with fetish army) From what I've read (by no means do I consider myself an expert on what is optimal), the preferred weapon for Zuni (and, it seems, every build but LoN barber) is the sacred harvester, with the cube being used to get damage (furnace) or playstyle utility (wormwood, staff of chiroptera). I don't believe that these numbers will enable a new optimal playstyle or anything like that, but it does show that at least one of our legendaries is not completely useless and has some value if the best options are unavailable. For what its worth, playing very casually this season (I had to study for my MCAT) I was able to reach GR75 with the zuni garg build that should be visible on my profile.Kyros2 Jun 26

Jun 23 Firebat is better for 100~105speeds? I think when I play with my friends FB WD they can hit more on elites than SB LON WD. SB LON hit a lot in normal mobs, but they die so fast and dont hit much on elites, i don't know if i am right. Maybe with 2000+ paragon SB is better? I have played with WD who have more than 5.000.000 damage on profile. What's your opinion?Digox3 Jun 23
Jun 22 Bad Medicine + Creeping Death + Piranhas = ? This has been bugging me for awhile. Creeping Death seems to specify that only the defense debuff on enemies remains active after the initial cast, but I am not sure because many of the skill interactions are a bit convoluted. What I want to know specifically is if I choose a Poison-element rune for the Piranhas and have both Bad Medicine and Creeping Death, will the Bad Medicine debuff remain active forever on enemies? I'm trying to balance my WD for a support role for my group and want to make sure I'm actually proccing the desired effects. Thanks!Prankman2 Jun 22
Jun 22 Zuni Progression GR 60 Just came back to play D3. I now have a 6-days old Zuni Pet Doctor. I temporarily used 2-pc Arachyr set and was able to reach GR60. Awhile ago, Tasker and Theos just dropped on me. It means I have to get rid of the 2-pc Arachyr. Arachyr has no shoulder slot so it has to go away. Now, which direction should I go? I can do 2-pc Jade or 2-pc Helltooth since they have shoulder slots. Or get rid on both of them and put something else? I have Carnevil but my Dagger of Darts weapon has low dps. Pls give me an idea in what direction I would swing my Pet build progression. Thanks.MrCute51217 Jun 22
Jun 22 Staying alive using Voo's Juicer Hi guys, LoN WD here. Recently I've found a nice Voo's Juicer and was hoping to use it in the 95-99s that I do pretty regularly. As a LoN WD with barber, sitting at 10 stacks of languish, I rarely come across any issues dying (other than the occasional mistake), however after moving to Voo's I can't seem to stay alive in some of those packs with Arcane + molten + poison. Seems like I just get insta-killed sometimes without that 10 stack of languish that the barber allows me. I'm wondering if it's just a matter of stacking a few more resists on my gear, or if it's a matter of finding a monk/barb that uses a different aura (I know very little about this), or if it's something else I'm doing/not doing. Thanks for any insight.Jules9 Jun 22

Jun 19 HT- with Shield/COE I had the standard HT build for several months. Recently, I got a primal CoE drop so I started playing around with the build. Also, I have seen more and more WD use red gems. Using the COE, requires dropping the taskers. -------------- Not sure about which shield to use. Dropped Serpent lose DPS & +15 garg, but Lidless Shield provides +20% Cold & 1.8K Armor or go Stormshield (+25-30 reduce Melee) Like to get some feedback.Saydin3 Jun 19
Jun 15 How To Get More Ancients Faster? What's the fastest way to get Ancient level loots? I need an Ancient level Sacred Harvester weapon? I disenchanted 7 of non-Ancient Soul Harvester Weapon already... I got 10 already since I started this toon last week but no Ancient level. It dropped some from Rift farming. Kadala gave me some. I upgraded yellow level items into legendaries and got some Sacred Harvester but no Ancient level. I farm bounties at Torment 12 but I farm some Rifts and Greater Rifts at Torment 13s (62 highest). I still find Torment 13 Belial and Malthael hard so I go down to Torment 12 when I farm bounties. I currently farm with my Carnevil Build... stucked on leveling gear unless some Ancient stuffs drop. I am thinking maybe I could do better with Jade so I am gonna level my Jade stuff. Multiplayer Torment 10 Rift farming is faster with Jade as Jade is faster on killing stuffs... Soul Harvest is more burst than repeated shots from Carnevil's Poison Darts.MrCute51210 Jun 15
Jun 15 Quick Questions on LoN I am returning player with a 2-week old WD. I am stucked with HT-Garg with highest GRift at 65, my Jade and Carnevil-Zuni is stucked at GRift 62. I need a lot of Ancients to move on. I looked at the Litany of The Daunted and Wailing Host Rings. I never played LoN before as I had few Ancients as a casual player. Now, it looks like I am getting lots of Ancients in my bank. I have some questions. Can I use an Ancient Set Item from Zuni, Jade, Arachyr or Helltooth on an LoN build as long as don't trigger its set bonus? Do pets or Fetishes gain bonus from LoN build? I can only wear 9 Ancients right now... I am getting only 9x 100% = 900% increased damage from LoN, right? I am just thinking that maybe I could use LoN-Barber for now that I am stucked in GRifts with other WD build.MrCute5122 Jun 15

Jun 13 Quickest 6pc sets to GR55? I'm trying to complete my 2nd conquest for that coveted bank tab. I played WD from release for about 3 years, took about 2 years off, and rerolled wiz for my first season character since they seemed to be FOTM in S10 :). Now I need 2 more 6pc bonus GR 55 clears and figured I'd come back to my old standby. Any recommendations which 2 gear sets will be easiest to clear on GR55, or does it matter at all since that's not really that high to begin with. Thanks!SilentMike695 Jun 13

Jun 12 An argument for changing the Carnevil affix ...into "Apon wearing mask 5 ghost/spirit fetishes appear. When you shot a Poison Dart they channel a poisonous dart attack" I believe the lag issue makes the Carnevil based builds undesireable. If this issue is eliminated I feel those builds would then receive the much need boosts to bring them on par with the top builds. For all intents and purposes nothing much changes when moving from a multi-object attack towards a channeling attack. Instead of the original 25 separate dart attacks we now have 6 separate darts and what I'm proposing is just the next logical step. I'm simply proposing that we throw out the separate darts altogether. This will completely eliminate the lag issue caused by several darts triggering several area damage calculations each and every attack. Now the damage calculation will be the channeling based one. Area damage, Attack Speed, etc will all be factored into a single moment of damage twice per second just like any other channeling skills. Nothing will be lost. I'm proposing six animation styles for each 10 yards from the player. These are the same damage zones for Zei's Stone of Vengeance and that is not a coincidence. Animation style A - Target is within 10 yard radius of the player. Damage would be dealt out in a 360 degree circle that falls off sharply as a normal (Gaussian) distribution. I'm thinking 20 yards for each standard deviation which would make 10 yard radias nearly 100%, 20 yards 68% and 40 yards 5% damage, beyond 60 yards would be less than 1% (0.3% to be exact). These numbers are actually the odds of taking full damage but can be used as a constant damage factor. Animation style B - Target is from 10 to 20 yards away from the player Damage is in a 90 degree arc. This is really no different than the Demon Hunter Multishot animation and could probably just use the same code for damage calculation. Animation C, D, E and F - Target is 20, 30, 40 and 50 yards away respectively These are the "hour glass" shaped attacks. Damage zone would be a rectangle. The argument here is that area damage around the dart-paths increase as the darts gather together producing a more-or-less constant zone of damage. With some creative trickery it might be possible to use the same animation with a scaling factor along the length to move the focal point. The ghost/spirit fetishes may or may not be always active but I feel the regular fetishes should not be used for the animation. This would complicate the animation. If this seems unfair then have the five closest fetishes stop attacking and go into a dance/pray animation. In effect channeling their power into the mask. The Dagger of Darts grants pierce to the Poison Dart attack. This may or may not be required. It really depends on how complicated the animation would be without pierce. Maybe have two attack modes for the mask: one without pierce that is the current multi-object style attack and one with pierce which is the new channeling style attack. The real culprit causing the lag is the pierce so it makes sense to change the affix with regards to pierce only. One final issue. By turning this affix into a channeling attack it may or may not grant the Mantle of Channeling damage and defence boost. I think it should. Carnevil builds are notoriously squishy and could really use the additional defensive boost. tl;dr When wearing Carnevil the Poison Dart skill becomes a channeling skill (with same damage boosts as it has now).Hamiltonz0 Jun 12
Jun 11 The Gidbinn sorry for this noob question but I got an ancient gidbinn and I was thinking if its worth using my ramaldhi's on it. ive searched on google on how many fetishes it can summon but im getting different answers... so if anyone knows the answer on how many fetishes I can summon with it id be really happy.Escher8 Jun 11

Thanks in advance!Lorus2 Jun 11
Jun 11 Angry Chicken doesn't always boost speed I'm confused. I'm trying to put together a WD build to do HC Speed Racer solo (because I can't find anyone else interested in joining the team), but I can't seem to get consistent speed boosts. I think I'm running all the right gear (Manajuma's, Rechel's, Tiklandian, Shukrani's, etc) with the right skills (Spirit Walk/Severance, Horrify/Stalker, Soul Harvest/Soul to Waste, Angry Chicken, etc). When I open up my character details tab while moving, I noticed that sometimes Angry Chicken increases my speed and sometimes it doesn't. What on Earth is going on?! My base speed with pets is +80%. Spirit Walk pushes this up to +280% (I think). Angry Chicken sometimes pushes it up to +380%, but sometimes has no effect at all. What's more, the Rechel's boost seems to only last about 1 second. Can anyone explain what's going on? As a follow-up, I know WD used to be great for solo Sprinter, and I've personally experienced that when I get my full speed boost, I'll zoom past any other class, but my one attempt today took me 77mins, which is just way off. Some experiments with dropping Chicken so I can recast Soul Harvest in density sped me up by about 5%, but it's easy to do too soon and get stuck in Chicken cooldown. Any tips on play style?Starlite5 Jun 11

Jun 8 Seeking advice to conquer higher GRs Just got back into D3 after not playing for at least the past year and have been busy learning all the new stuff. I've been reading the forums, trying different things, and I really enjoy my current Zuni Zoo build. However, I'm capped about at GR 55 right now, and I'm looking for advice on progression.

Jun 7 Zunimassa / Carnevil advice Im working towards a zunimassa carnevil build, as it was fun to play in the past.

Ring: RorG (in qube), Convention of Elements, Unity Amu: Hellfire Amulett Skills would be: Dart Acid Rain Spirit Walk Soul Harvest Fetish Army Zombie Dogs 1. If i take the mana rune for darts, does the bonus from "deapth digger" also apply to darts from fetishes or just to my own darts? 2. Regarding ring / amu combination, any thoughts on Compass Rose+Travelers Pledge vs. Convention of Elements+Hellfire Amulet? 3. How would a Legacy of Nigmares + Carnevil build fare in comparison? Any other advice? ThanksZhadoom8 Jun 7
Jun 7 How good is Skeleton King shoulder? How frequently does the skeleton king shoulder proc? I am running the LoN build and I don't have this piece. Is it worth farming for one before I spend a lvl 100 gem? Is the proc chance in the "rarely triggers" range or the "often triggers"? If it's got a good chance of saving you I might hold off spending theaugment gem. Otherwise I just keep running with the shoulders I have on now?Ivan6 Jun 7
Jun 6 Locust Swarm Questions I just came back to D3 2 days ago. Quick question. Ring of Emptiness buffs Locust Swarm. Does it buff the Locust Swarm from Wormwood? And does Locust Swarm considered a Mana spenders from 6-pc bonus of Zuni? Does the Locust Swarm from Wormwood triggers the 2500% increased damage 6-pc Zuni buff to pets?MrCute5123 Jun 6
Jun 5 Switched to Fire Bats Need feedback https://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Brutal-11797/hero/88742225 Hey everyone, I used to play HT Garg but i decided to switch to Fire bats build. After Gearing for a day or two this is what i currently have. Obviously i need to work on getting everything Ancient but what re-rolls am i aiming for? I heard Area% if what i need on mostly everything but is there anything else? I might go back to HT Garg because i have better gear but i wanted to give this a try. thanks in advance :)Brutal1 Jun 5
Jun 5 Got my HT set and squishy as hell Hi all, I finally got my HT set and I feel really squishy. Now the gear is no where near optimal, and my gems need leveled up. GR62 just kicked my but. I finished it but barely. Any tips? A sacred harvester would help for sure. Any tips on what to look for on gear as I spend shards or am I using the wrong passives? This build honestly feels like you drop wall of death and run around to make sure you don't die. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. https://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Lirrin-1116/hero/49557437Lirrin8 Jun 5
Jun 5 LoN SB group play style The LoN Spirit Barrage build has many varients. This is especially true when you are in a group and can afford to drop Spirit walk and Piranhas. But, when you are in groups what do you find as the most effective playstyle? Do you try to channel on a yellow (I.e. Press and hold SB)? Do you click click click at different areas around the mobs? Do you wait for elites to join a trash pack before burning the trash or do you burn the trash ASAP because this build doesn't stack area damage. Personally, I am running the Provoke the pack varient of this build when I group. I have found waiting for elites to join a trash pack to be effective. However, I think the source of the effectiveness is that I have to stop channeling SB in order to sacrifice my dogs. This mean I am rarely channeling SB for long. I also stop every now and then to resprrad haunt and locust just in case I missed something on setup. What have you found effective when grouping? Note, I have experience upto 106 as the DPS WD.Ivan7 Jun 5
Jun 4 Primal SMK I just found a primal SMK today. It would be a shame to just scrap that beauty. Any suggestions for a viable build? Is it even worth it? I am open to suggestions. Thanks in advance.Morpheus7 Jun 4
