    Hello Morkai - I would be glad to meet you on Team speak to discuss your build I realy would like to test it out and Highlight it in the guide. ;) or you can make video


    Hey,

    Yeah we can T something up over team speak, I'm just re-organising my drives as I lost one of my SSD's the other day! Also I found fraps to be quite annoying but I just took "PlayClaw4" for a test run and it came out smoothly. I'll upload one later today.

    maybe PM me your Real ID, Or Team speak details - I'm on the us server so...

    Morkai,

    This build looks so cool, and honestly it seems like u are really owning that trash mobs and elites. Can't wait to get home and try it out. Btw if i may ask what is your mana regeneration, and is the 4 piece set a must have?

    Base mana is 90/s so w/o Zuni it's 70/s. 20/s isn't much on paper but it def helps.... I tried testing a tal rash chest for the 18k dps boost but the mana resource needed goes up more than 20/s. maybe with a nice rolled archon chest it might be less noticeable but then 7-8k dps vs 1 free cast every 5 secs....

    I decided to stay with Zuni.

    Morkai,

    Thank you very much Morkai, i am sitting on the same 70 at the moment without the Zuni Vision and 4 piece set. The rest of the stats look almost the same as yours with few k dps less, will try to farm up some cash to get the helm and really start the build going, but its a great one and just shows how WD's are really a versatile class.
    Keep it up!
  • #26
    If ur tight on the cash I think any helm with mana, regen and cc is viable... The set just polishes the build but I think it can still work with out it.

    Thanks for all the help Morkai, i really appreciate it. Here is the link to profile, only thing i am not certain yet it should i use Thing of the Deep or the Uhkapian Serpent, it gives me 11k dps more but i feel the pickup radius is much more suited for the globe pickup and allows me to stack it up far better.

    Your welcome Xezian!


    Note I now have 76khp so not sure if that is a must but def helps... I swapped SA for GI and dogs for confuse paranoia. I can say it rocks!!!

    How do bear builds fare this day? All I see here and on official forums are people using bats.

    I'm new to the WD and just kinda plucked some ideas from others here to run a very effective Bears build. I'm still woefully under-geared but can run MP 6 like a boss with it (Para 6, new char as of 3 days ago 50mil budget).

    Probably due to my novice gear, I had issues running Bats, but have been able to crank out Bears with near impunity. I didn't like how Bats would eat up mana if you had to move and recast. Maybe when I get better geared I'll try Bats again, but I would recommend this build to beginner WD's.

    Yeah, I gave in to temptation yesterday and shelled some gold on what seemed to be bargain stuff for my WD and mixed it with some gear I had left from when I was trying sleet storm.
    I run http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/witch-doctor#VfUdjQ!ZYT!ccZcYb, but I am considering getting some mana regen skills like it seems you did. I really dig it, since there seems to be so many ways I could do this without destroying the build and I only played it for like a couple of hours.

    With the Vision Quest Passive, I use Rain of Frogs just breifly before engaging enemies to trigger the massive 30% mana regen and then start cranking bears for 5 seconds......pop RoF again (just a touch) and I harvest another 5 seconds of +30% regen. This has really been an efficient manner of maintaining mana. Keep in mind that I'm a beginner WD and still learning, but I picked this particular tip up from others here.

    Vision Quest actually has a timer icon displayed above your skill bar, making it easy to maintain 100% up-time.

    I did have a question if anyone knows, since I'm new to the WD.

    Does Plague of Bats tic Life Steal at the efficiency/rate as Zombie Bears? I'm getting the impression that Bears regains life must better than Bats (specifically PoB).
