Witch Doctor HC 2.3

  • Just a few questions for you guys out there this will be my uh fourth attempt at a HC WD and I'm hoping to make this one withstand the test of time. What new builds/setups would you prefer for a WD in 2.3 mind you I still love my summon build but what can I do with kanai's cube and etc. to maximize my damage output and survivability beyond T6?

    My first HC character is a Witch Doctor, and he's still alive (/knocks on wood). If you're having a hard time surviving you may want to consider extracting the Legendary power from a Uhkapian Serpent to start. Using that power will take up your weapon slot on the cube, but it's an easy 30% damage reduction.

    Most of the sets have a built in damage reduction set bonus, and all of them are quite capable of T6. It's mostly just a matter of finding a complete set, and some supporting items to go with it. Just take it slow, don't get too greedy, stay alert, and stay alive. Oh, and good luck!

    Wait a minute...I thought you were a Barbro???!!

    I don't know how to feel right now...

    Oh, wait, this is console. Phew! :)


    These days I try and play both a Witch Doctor and Barbarian every Season. I always play a Barbarian in RPG games if it's an option, but the Witch Doctor in D3 was far too intriguing to pass up.
