@ drDisappear

1. 9/10
2. solid everything. but i am big fan of pickup and +health, you have none, should get some.
3. don't understand why healing sw and mana spider. why not mana sw and free that slot for anything else. 5.3% life steal should keep you healed.
4. pox with crit chance. i always wanted one.

Yeah I have been looking into getting some pickup radius gear, its just hard to find it with the stats i want for the right price. I have jaunt on my SW not healing, mana spiders I find are extremely nice for High MP uber mana regen, allows me to spam bears way more than any other mana regain ability iv tried so far.
@Nerzaa

1) 7/10
2) Looks like a speed run build with GI/GF/PtV + Stalker. Curious how the cloud of bats works compared to the typical AC speed run build. As long as you can 1 shot the trash with AC, it should be faster with a larger AoE + range.
3) Most of your items can be upgraded. It'd be hard to find good ones that have a PUR roll as well though since you are running with a 2 hander. Similar Skorn would be an upgrade since it would be an additional 100% crit potential.
4) Nice Hellfire

@ DrDisappear

1) 8/10
2) Have no real comment about your build. It looks good for solo. I would recommend switching jungle fortitude over to bad medicine if you are running in groups because it benefits all players rather than just yourself. Having 20% dmg reduction from enemy is better than 15% reduction to yourself... especially since jungle fortitude is a selfish passive IMO. (decent for solo though if you are having trouble staying alive).
3) Your life and armour could be raised a bit. You are running 45k life with the amethyst in your helm.. Finding a Vile ward with vit or life% would be helpful. Also take a look at new bracers (I would suggest 200+ int, 75+ vit strongarm bracers since they come with 8-9% life as well as armour boost + 4.5% crit) You would be sacrificing 1.5% crit for better damage mitigation and more life. You might be able to drop jungle fortitude altogether after you do that and get a better passive.
4) Love the 5.5% cc pox

oh sorry, thought jaunt was healing. the extra 3 secs is useful to rez in ubers. spirit vessle is the same idea, good for ubers fight.

i can see why u r using sv with jaunt though, 10 seconds cd on sw instead of 13 seconds. but you have to spend time spamming spider, especially with a slow 2 hand, that eats into that. the free live doesn't mean much.

i would change spirit vessle to either gf or spiritual attunement, and use honored guest instead of jaunt. use either a big dmg skill (pile on, zombie rush, or cloud of bats) or a control skill (grasp of dead or mass confusion) or combination of both (fetish ambush) instead of spider.

for ubers, i would use jaunt and sv.
1) 8/10
2) strong build, maybe i will change rune in spider or SW
3) Pox with CC
4) a bit jelly of your helm CC
@ofgortens

1. 8.5/10
2. It seems like a higher MP6+ skill build. Very solid build, nothing that I would change personally.
3. I would try to get pox w/ crit and grab a pair of gloves with cd, cc and high intel, since I think you would benefit more from the cd over ias.
4. Love your MCK & boy if that Tals Ammy rolled some cc :]
Any advice on how to improve my wd? :D Right now I'm just trying to push up in mp levels

not a pure speed run, would be running ac and angry chicken if that's the case. it's for mp5 farming.

i don't rly like cloud of bats, was just testing it from reading the forum. now i am settled on using dead rush, and it's a great dmg skill on top of the bear spam. yea, but 1200-1700 life steal skorns are way too expensive for me...
@ MothsToFlame

The idea is to critique someone above you in order to be critiqued yourself. Is that so hard to understand? Too many 10 yr olds play this game I guess... oh well.

1) 6/10
2) I think dart builds are for pansies unless you are playing hardcore... switch it for a better damage skill and boost your dps so that you wont need to use PtV anymore.
3) Helm can use cc, lacuni with cc, or get inna's pants and grab a cheap strongarm bracers so that you can have the guaranteed 4.5% crit, life%, and high base stat. You life needs to be brought up to 45k+ range. Get a better mojo that rolls vit or life% as well as high dmg, high crit.
4) Nice cc pox
@ofortgens

1) A solid 9.5/10
2)I don't see any flaws, seems like a viable mp6-7 build ,how is your mana regen ?
3) Maybe some life regen ?
4) That amulet rocks !
@Ziglabeu

1) 7/10
2) mp7
3) better mojo w/more damage
4) nice Dire Star!

The build in my profile is one I use for MP6-7. MP8+ I sub out GI and put in Bad Medicine usually since I am more than likely doing it in a group (boring to run MP8+ solo). Mana regen is good with the VQ + WM to supply me with enough mana for high bear spamming. The higher attack speed makes it pretty seemless when throwing out a jar of spiders every couple bear casts.
@GongFai

1. 8/10
2. Since you are focusing on a lot of MPS, I guess you're doing higher MP runs? I have nothing bad to say about your build, very solid MP6+ build.
3. Unless you don't want to loose that MF, I would replace the ammy.
4. Loving your Uhk Serpant, Looking for one myself :]
@Recount

I got that Serpant from AH, 10m. :)
Oh really? Thanks man, going to check the AH once I get home :]

why mana spider if you already use vision quest? 30% from vision quest not providing enough mana on its own? what if you add honored guest? i think you can free up a slot to use something else. and zombie dogs feel unnecessary solo or group in ur setup.
@Nerzaa

1)7/10
2)why those inna belt?
3)my personel thought 2hand is not effective as maja+thing...
4)but really nice rare 2 hand :)
