Witch Doctor

Sep 25, 2012 Stone of Jordan Worth it? Looking for player's who own the rings input. Is the bonus damage to elite worth it? I'm running a SB build (which I have no plans of significantly changing any time soon) and am looking at buying one with 12% SB damage. I already have a +17% SB damage bonus, so this ring would put me around 30% damage bonus. So any input guys? Do you think I'd be better off buying a ring with other stats or should I stack the bonus damage to SB/elites?Theory52 Sep 25, 2012

Sep 25, 2012 40m to invest. What should I improve? Hi WD players! I'm looking to upgrade my WD, but i'm just not sure what to go for? My playstyle goes something like this. - Spawn dogs - Fire off some primary skills vs small groups - Elites or large groups spam AC and when mana runs out sacrifice dogs for more mana - Spawn dogs again (assuming CD has finished) - Continue spamming AC and sacrifice dogs again when out of mana - Out of mana? No more dogs to sacrifice? Scoot and shoot with primary Rinse and repeat. Any input is appreciated! Thanks!KailaR2 Sep 25, 2012

Sep 25, 2012 Hesterry's Solo Inferno WD Guide I have moved this guide to Google Docs for simplicity, organization, and ease of updating. For those who have read it in the old format, I've removed the guide from this thread, but didn't delete the posts. If you guys prefer the old format, I'll re-post it. Link: https://docs.google.com/open?id=0BxtkoQdSGtg2cDdCTE9vUnVTTzQ Here's an excerpt from the introduction: "I am a Witch Doctor known as Hesterry. I have soloed all of Diablo 3 since normal, all the way through Inferno Diablo. I am not an amazingly good player by any means – decent, I would say – my internet connection is “meh,” and my gear is only “reasonably good.” My point is this: If I can solo Inferno as a Witch Doctor, so can just about anyone. I hope to illustrate how, for all who are interested. The Purpose of This Guide While I could write a guide on how to magic find effectively, blah blah blah... I'm going to avoid doing that, as I'm sure there are already tons of such guides that are better than I could write. Instead I'm going to focus on progression – how to get to Act 4 as quickly as possible. Therefore, I will talk very little on the concept of MF, how to fight elite packs (as they can be run past), and so on. Though, if there are enough requests for it, I may add a small section to each Act on farming recommendations – but I will NOT go in-depth. Why not just farm as you go, or farm the easier/earlier Acts/bosses? Interestingly, this has the same answer as why you would want to farm such things – the loot. Blizzard has stated that each subsequent Act has a higher tier of loot. In other words, Act Four Inferno has better loot than Acts one, two, or three of Inferno. So, by getting to Act 4, and learning to farm it somewhat efficiently, you will be getting better, more valuable loot than you would by farming the earlier Acts. Thus, progression in Inferno > farming – at least until you hit Act Three or four, with very few exceptions." ----------------------------------------- Special Thanks Thasika - For recommending cheap movement speed legendaries for Azmodan Spellful - For being the first one to show me a good guide on the use of Splinters and kiting Dom - For making me do math (you jerk!)

With this Monster Power thing it's more efficient to run in group since mobs only has 70% hp each player, and you get keys/components faster.

Sep 25, 2012 WDs Role in 1.0.5 I watched a few streams of the PTR which were kinda disappointing since none of them had a WD in them. I do not see us running bears in the higher monster levels unless you have godly gear and 200k + damage. The health increase on all enemies would make us drain our mana since the fights will take longer with less health globes to find because enemies are not dying. So what then becomes the roll of the non-200k + WD? Ok maybe 200k is a bit of an exaggeration. With the change to Jungle Fortitude, Bad Medicine now comes out on top if you can produce enough wide spread poison damage to keep it rolling on all enemies. Jungle Fortitude Damage reduction reduced from 20% to 15% Bad Medicine is still 20% This takes us down the route of party support more than it used to. Especially if you run with a Barb since their War Cry has been reduced. War Cry Skill Rune – Impunity Bonus resistance reduced from 50% to 20% BBV w/ Slam Dance will becomes way more important with each increase in Monster Power. Pets will be the most important aspect a WD will bring since they are a great distraction. You just have to be able to keep them alive by gearing right. Soundb quote: ... We all currently love our GF/GI combo with 20+ PUR. But this may not be viable in MP5 and higher since enemies will just not die fast enough. I suppose it all depends on what MP you want to play on. I can see the following passives being the most helpful in a PARTY play situation: Bad Medicine-20% reduced enemy damage Zombie Handler-1 more dog and 20% more hp=more and longer distraction VQ-More mana regen So what to use for attacking? As much as some of us hate it an Acid Cloud/RoT combo may become the most useful. This still leaves our SW/SH combo Watching some of these streams will make you think your watching a raid. Especially if you watch a stream where they are running MP10 against Uber Skelly King/Magda. There was alot of talk about who is going to do what to which enemy, which character was bringing what party buff/enemy debuff etc etc. Team communication is needed and if you don't already have a D3 community you are a part of either on Vent/Skype/Teamspeak etc you may want to find one. My first idea of a spec for 1.0.5: /Takes out umbrella to get ready for shiot storm of comments. http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/witch-doctor#YQUdWR!UdX!cbZYbaCognus8724 Sep 25, 2012

Sep 25, 2012 Advice: Can't beat Inferno Diablo I've tried probably 50 times and I can't beat Diablo. I have no trouble with any other act 3 or 4 bosses. I am begging for any advice here. Please check out my profile and let me know. My damage is at 38K. My resists are all at 700 or higher. I've tried all sort of skill combinations, but just can't do it.

Sep 25, 2012 So how are WDs now?? So i played a witch doctor when this game was released, after realizing how pathetic this class, and the game, was i stopped playing 1 month after release. So i was looking at my desktop today and saw that i still had Diablo installed, and thought what the hell lets click on this thing, BUT my Wich Doctor is naked, i have around 7 million gold and thats it, i also have a lvl 60 Demon Hunter but i find them way too boring. Anyway, what changed from release till now?Are pets still terrible? Do we run out of mana in 5 seconds? Is Vision Quest sill must have? Will i be able to farm Act 3 without dieing in one hits with a 7million gear?kazdum23 Sep 25, 2012
Sep 25, 2012 WD's who have played the PTR How are you handling it on the higher tier monster power levels? I've tried to see if I could find any live streams but as usual everyone is playing their WW barb, or CM wizard. I was going to try it myself but I really don't want to install another 8+gb game client for the same game. So anyone else out there give it a go?DonBukka23 Sep 25, 2012

Sep 25, 2012 Zuni/Blackthorne Set Combo I'm about to dump a large chunk of gold on my gear (maybe all of it) and I wanted to see if anyone had any input on the matter. I was thinking about set bonuses, and aside from the obviously epic Zuni set, I was thinking the Blackthorne set would be the best complement to it. The way I see it for Zuni's set is: Vision, Pox, and Trail (and maybe string of skulls down the line if I ever find one with crit chance), and for Blackthorne set: Surcoat, Jousting Mail, Notched Belt (and maybe Duncraig Cross with crit chance if ever possible). I know that by only getting 3 peices for each set I will miss out on 2 set bonuses, but I think that this would be an epic combo. +130 INT, +55 AR, +100 Vit, +6% damage to elites. It is also very possible that I could complete one or both sets somewhere down the line, adding +20 mana regen/sec and 10 mana per kill, and/or -7% damage from elites and +15% MF and GF. I'm thinking that something like this will be required to make it through higher monster levels. Would you do that if you had the gold? Would you get the same items or mix the sets differently? Would you get a completely different set?MikeHoncho2 Sep 25, 2012
Sep 25, 2012 Looking for high end TotD I haven't seen much on the AH lately, so I figure'd I'd ask here. I imagine someone probably wants to avoid a 15% AH cut as well. My requirements: 185+ average damage 200+ int 150+ vit ideally with either mf, %life, physical/fire resist, armor or life regen. I can go up to ~80 mil if you have something really sweet, and I'll throw in my current mojo (>10M value) so you're not walking around empty handed.somebody2 Sep 25, 2012

Sep 25, 2012 How much health do i need My build is currently on the lower damage side of things due to my 1.) Using a shield and 2.) Using a gold find top. Im going to phase the gold find top out or at least get a damage top to switch into from time to time, because yes i do realize that goldskin isnt the most effective top for inferno mode. I have been sacrificing my health from damage more and more and i dont want to get to a point where im totally 1 shot in inferno, i also dont want my pets to be glass cannon, they tank for me and if i get any squisheyer and they die im doomed(i it that if i get pulled in by a vortex jail desecration mob i dont instantly die )BlackMokona0 Sep 25, 2012
Sep 25, 2012 Best way to run Bears without 4 piece Zunis? I know that the 4 piece zuni gives a great Mana bonus, but that's out of my budget until something good drops for me. Until that point, what is the best 3 passives to run when using bears to mitigate the high mana cost? I should probably drop PtV... Looking at my skills and gear, what should I change? The weapon is a big DPS boost over my last, but I'm finding I survive better with 500 LoH than 75k dps and LS. :/ Thinking of going back to my old weapon or getting a blackthorne pants for some more health and LoH.Windgrace26 Sep 25, 2012
