Hello guys! I'll be posting resources to help you along your way in your journey this season (6) as a Witch Doctor.
Witch Doctor - Leveling: (Dfans) For those that have gone this road before, this is the easiest part. Leveling up WD was a complete and utter joke, a mockery of "ACTION RPG". It was truly an "AFKRPG". Here's a summary of advice.
Pets from hell: Dogs and Garg will be your bread and butter. (Fetish Sycophants (passive), too)
DoT's from hell: Haunt and Locust Swarm are MVP's too.
Combine the above, and you CANNOT FAIL, making the last 2 slots anything you want.
The disgusting power you have leveling up allows WD to increase difficulty level (but don't push it) past Hard or Expert. Most classes need build adjustments before entering bossfights - not you... not you sir... (For the new: D3 leveling process- keep in mind I cannot take into consideration every factor in the leveling process, this is a general help guide)
Past that, refer again to the Witch Doctor - Fresh Level 70or (On Dfans) guide again. From here you will be directed on what build to use, adjustments and items to look for. If i were to give you a few bullet points of advice...
Items: Mask of Jeram, Tasker and Theo, Carnevil, Dagger of Darts, Small Mans Finger...
Zuni 6 spender: seriously this is very very flexible. Please try to experiment on what you feel is best.
Mask of Jeram is disgustingly rare. YOU CAN CHEESE GETTING ONE IF YOU'RE DESPERATE. Powerlevel a L31 WD and spend blood shards on helmet. There are only 4 legendaries in this pool (Split Tusk, Quetzalcoatl, CARNEVIL and MASK OF JERAM). While a L31 Legendary sucks for end-game use, you can extract the cubed power! Is it worth it? MoJ literally doubles your pets DPS, buddy.
Witch Doctor Speedfarming: Your next goal should be to be as "speed farm capable" as possible. Luckily, WD's are pretty damn good at doing this.
(For newer players: D3 Speedfarming tips). I hesitate to suggest a "best build" right now, but you should learn to be as malleable as possible. Again, I cannot possibly account for all possible scenarios for all players - but please use the advice contextually.
Enjoy! and in case you're looking for something else - TeamBRG D3 Guide Directory. Up to this point I'm still not sure what I wanna play this season, but WD Zunimassa was actually one of my choices. I'm sick of helltooth, and Poison Dart damage is absolutely bonkers with all the multiplicative buffs. We're talking HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS here...
