Best WD spell

Witch Doctor
Spirit walk - if you haven't used it, try it.
I had no plan of putting this in my build til I used it, now it is never coming out
same here, but with Sacrifice.

well timed dogs on mobs and they explode with stupid damage.

try out the weird ones guys!
Soul harvest is simply the most OP.

But oh my god it may not be the most powerful but I love making chickens out of elite mobs. It is HILARIOUS. So Hex is probably my favorite.
Have to agree with mekilleeyou. I can't see any reason why not to use Soul Harvest in any WD build.

P.S.: Admittedly it is not so great against every Act end boss.
+1 to Soul Harvest.
+1 to Spirit Walk.
Toss up between Soul Harvest and Sacrifice. And possibly Dire Bats + Soul Harvest.

Sacrifice and Dire Bats just make me think of Corpse Explosion and Bone Spear. And Soul Harvest just ramps up the damage. <3
SH sucks vs any boss that doesn't summon adds
spirit walk ROCKS. It looks cool as well, reminds me of princess mononoke.

99.9 % of the time their are more than two monsters around for you to harvest..

Not saying saying spirit walk isn't great.. But Bats, Soul Harvest, and vision quest is just disturbing.

Which seems far too often. Plus you have to basicly hug the boss to get stacks, which isn't always the best thing.

I think the Witch Doctor will shine later, much later, when in groups with Big Bad Voodoo and the slows.

Toad of Hugeness is the most amusing spell right now. I log into my friends games and just toad whenever I can..
Problem is, when hitting lvl 60 and neph valor buff gets in... u better not change that skill bar.

During the boss SH may not be that good, but before it, its glorious. Moar than worth it to have at the action bar.
Can someone explain why SoulHarvest is so great?
I don't think I actually understand the mechanics of it - what it does, and why it rocks.
damage 150

use soul harvest 450
It's an insane DPS booster, and I used the mana rune so I don't go low on bluegoo

Sure it is - rune for siphon and you get a free heal on 1-3 mobs :)
Grasp of the Dead (especially [Unbreakable Grasp]) is Awesome,
Spirit Walk is Amazing,
Soul Harvest is Godly.
About Spirit Walk - the tooltip doesn't say this but am I correct in the spell seeming to increase movement speed along with negating movement impairment? Could be wrong it just seems like it's a bit of a speed boost as well

You're right, it does give a speed boost.
