Wow, yeah, nice DPS but your HP is at least half of what it needs to be.
Resistances become 10x more important in Inferno (generally, and more than HP) but you still want at least 30k HP. I'd shoot for 30-35k health and then only worry about stacking resists to all. The mobs in Inferno hit so hard that the resists give you a lot more effective HP.

Hey, thanks for sharing! I've been a bandwagon bear-build user through almost 2 difficulties. I hit Inferno this morning and it felt like hitting a brick wall. This build answers a lot of the shortcomings of the bear build (which is still insanely good against bosses), namely the lack of CC / snare and the close-range requirement.Posted in: Witch Doctor: The Mbwiru Eikura
Honestly I'm really happy about this, as the bear build is fun sometimes but not my style of play; this build is far closer to the kind of build I ran in Normal / NM when anything worked and you could do what felt fun.
I'm hoping to see some success with this build; I've got 15k DPS and 38k life and am lucky to beat 1-2 elite packs in Act 1 before starting to infinitely and instantly wipe. I've also spent too long playing with big DPS 2H styles, as the long cast time locks you in place which is suicide when mobs are 1-2-3 shotting you.
EDIT: Someone above was asking about how this worked on bosses, and my thinking would be if you're just progressing / clearing content I'd swap it all out for a standard 2-minute bear build, but for farming (i.e., can't lose Neph stack) this still seems like it'd work pretty well.

Definitely it a bug, it's explicitly worded (and obviously intended) to affect all cooldowns.Posted in: Witch Doctor: The Mbwiru Eikura

You're going to lose a little DPS but a really nice 1H (i.e., one with Reduced Level affix (=insane DPS) with a stout shield with +INT and +VIT is the best combination I've found so far. A great OH will let you wank off about your marginally better DPS or that you found one that takes 2 seconds off x or y cooldown, but I'll take 1000 armor and 2000 HP and blah blah now that I'm hitting champ packs in Hell.Posted in: Witch Doctor: The Mbwiru Eikura

Just an update everyone, looks like with the rolling maintenance tonight they included a hotfix for this, it no longer spawns a resplendent chest after the first run or so.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

Good point Nuvian, it could be a big disaster if they throw it out there and things like this (and even worse, to be sure) come out of the woodwork overnight.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

The devs literally said that anything can drop anything, it's all a matter of percentages and odds. Do you like your odds better farming this chest in Act 2 (not Act 1, you don't even know what you're talking about) Inferno or trying to down really brutal champion packs that might not even have a better chance to drop the elite-end legendaries? In the time to kill one nasty champion pack in Inferno you could hit this chest 2-4 times. Even if you're right, you're wrong.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

Yeah, they have very, very good loot tables, don't kld yourself.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Even if they never dropped a legendary or rare, they consistently drop good gems / artisan pages, which is OP enough without the rares and legendaries that do indeed drop.

Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from ErUI don't see how this is any different from classic Diablo farming.
It's not, which is why it's crummy and how we know to a pretty good degree of certainty that it's not 'working as intended'; the devs have stated over and over D3 is not supposed to function the same way (i.e., farming one area / boss forever).

Yeah, but you actually have to at least fight and kill those champion packs.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
I'm looking more forward to Inferno, where this will be stupidly broken. You can conveivably run past even champion packs in the very short trip from the WP to check for this, and farm an exceptionally good loot table with almost zero danger / effort. It may not be broken in Normal / NM but it's going to start looking that way in Inferno very quickly.
