    posted a message on How to survive as a Witch Doctor?

    I know this is an old post but a lot of these replies are wrong. I play HD witch doctor for years and never had an issue dying.

    1. You need your death passive always on spirit vessel

    2. Get items that reduce damage % like Lakumbas bracers ukapien serpent kitty cat blood brother justice lantern etc.. unity is nice but if you can't find 2 right away use other options.

    3. I'm using Jade harvester now on PTR with only 15 hours on my WD (with no rushing) I've completed level 57. You need soul harvest for the damage reduction so always make sure you have full 5 stacks. 10 stacks even better if you have Sacred Harvester weapon. Those bracers are godsend

    4. Get a front line. I use the passive Fetish Syncophant but you also try something like belt of transcendence. I also use the belt that causes enemies to be slowed 80% affected by locusts swarm so nothing can surprise me or get past my front line.

    5. Start slow until you have full stacks and a fetish army.. never take an unknown banner especially when you don't have your defences stacked.

    6. Use appropriate skills and gems. Spirit walk probably best skill in the game to get you to safety. Horrify gives you 50% more armor so spam it in tough areas or use dogs to soak if you don't have fetish. Use topaz in your gear it helps with all res as well so you need armor and life on items more than all res. Legendary gems like estoic


    I can edit and post more later but I have never lost a WD in hardcore. Neither should you. They are the best feeling for survival imo

    posted a message on Season 9 Meta

    It is really a shame that the dh and the cruisader are not in the meta since over 1 year.


    I remember the other classes were in the same boat before. Every competitive game goes through these kind of pick and chose phases when there are changes. So if those are the classes you want to play just give it some time and try to enjoy them anyway
    In the PTR right now I have a hardcore WD using the jade harvester set with some modifications and its pretty fun. Rank 12 or something because nobody else is doing what I am but im having fun with it and thats all that matters when it comes to Diablo

    posted a message on Legacy Legendary again?

    So I've taken a long hiatus from diablo 3 and have recently come back due to the much needed refreshing changes. I have noticed some legendary's and set items will get buffed in ROS 2.0 so my question is:

    does anyone know the answer or heard anything regards to what will happen to our current legendary's and set items? Will they become "LEGACY" aka useless tools like previous patches or will they be hot fixed and retain value. I play HC where gold/ value is a bit different

    Thanks

    posted a message on Hardcore group PTR

    I lost my 60 (6) DH about 6 months ago going afk to get a beer which I thought was a fitting death for me!

    Anyway, just loaded up the PTR yesterday and decided to roll through some HC. There is a lot I do not know about the new patch; crafting materials; paragon levels; builds?; account bound items; etc.. But I am going to be up on and about on the PTR until RoS becomes available

    If you would like to join me and share some experiences and loot feel free

    posted a message on Exploding Palm?
    Lately I have been interested in using this skill. I first used it as a bleed effect in PVP to counter my brothers Rend. So after I left it equipped I found its very useful in high MP.

    If a target dies with this effect on, I use the increased duration for this reason, they explode dealing 50% of their max HP! That reminds me of corpse explosion. I am sure many of you have tried this already but with what results? I don't think TR monk is effect high mp so I have been trying this out.

    This is what I do= Mark as many targets as I can right when 1 or 2 are about to die, and when that marked target is dead, it deals 50% of their hp which is usually over a Million damage.. Then that enemy dies and since he was also marked it basically turns into an instant type of chain reaction and they all die. So far I have had some pretty cool results, my only struggle is going against elites where it can be hard to get 1 to die while marked due to the danger and amount of hp they have, but once 1 dies with a mark, its pretty much instant NV.

    What do you guys think about this skill?

    posted a message on Tempest rush with bells on top
    At first i didn't like your build but once I saw it in action I was really impressed. I don't think I have the spirit regen to pull it off so I stick with my 7-sided strike. Thanks for sharing though its something to mess around with in the future :)

    posted a message on Heard some rumors about xp gem/ring is no longer needed.
    Firstly I am not an expert at this game I am just like you and want to see what works. So lately I have been farming higher mp levels 4-7 with my monk and have found that it is more effective/fun and I get more ilvl63 drops when I farm higher MP with DPS gear over low MP with XP gear. Like BagStone, I too say to myself, if equipping my nat's ring gives me 10% more dps and I lose my HF ring, is it worth it? My answer is yes. But if you do not have the gear that makes that big impact, I would recommend keeping your xp gear, farming low levels and work around with what you can.

    When I have amethyst in my helm, great DPS gear with some decent spirit regen, I survive longer and deal more damage. I found that I can tempest rush in MP4 and one hit most trash, and survive long enough to kill elites in a few seconds, much harder with those xp/ spirit regen items. If i can one hit mobs mp0- mp4, why would I chose mp0? It seems just as effective to me but than again, I don't study this game or make charts

    posted a message on SELLING A2 INFERNO GOBLIN WAYPOINTS
    I have never farmed Act 1 gobbi so I can't deny or confirm what you suspect. Maybe there was a hotfix for these gobbi's? I am sure Blizz would rather see us use the AH or smithy to progress to gear, I would too when prices get shot down a bit. I farm Act 2 with 170% mf and I usually get a few rare items, especially when 3 others are invited with their MF gear. Usually 1/3 gobbi's drops 1 rare at the least.

    posted a message on Rolling New Char - Walking Act 1 - 5 > Screw Powerleveling
    Diablo down! :) Yeah he was a lot easier than I anticipated. But I like that about this game, once you accept the challenge to take on a boss, you can't really turn back! Of course I level up way past the average level for these type of encounters, just to play safe. How are you doing so far with your Wizzy?

    Nightmare is easy as of right now, considering how slow zombies are. Still in Act 1, they do hit pretty hard so I just crawl forward, clear space, and play safe. Really Hardcore is not harder than softcore, it just requires more patience and staying on top of good gear as you progress.

    posted a message on Nether Tenticle Major nerf
    Quote from Fitsu

    DH just became the worst ranged class, cool ^_^. Good thing i'm just gnna farm on my barb anywho seeing how everything is nerfed n stuff :P

    Nah there is this class called the Witch Doctor.
    This buff was needed undoubtedly. Its just like when Guided Arrow in Diablo 2 would just tear things apart with pierce. They got rid of that quickly when everyone rolled Amazons and that was it. Considering all the nerfs in Inferno and the attack speed afix, I am confident another great DH build will arrive. Of course my DH is in hardcore so my skills are completely different then these high dps builds, but I feel that's the best balance, and hey after having repair cost go higher, maybe more DH will start playing more like hardcore, DON'T DIE!

    posted a message on Help! I cannot make it through Act I Normal
    Quote from Thunderz

    * Get some twink gear off the AH with vit
    * Most classes get an ohshit-skill very early (like Diamond Skin on a Wizard; Breath of Heaven / Serenity on a Monk; Fear / Spirit Walk on a WD; Smoke Screen on a DH; so on) make sure those are always off CD when you engage a pack
    * When exploring zones, always go along the edge
    * When escaping, always kite back to where you came from
    * Make sure you have an exit nearby like a dungeon or a town
    * Use the templar with defensive + aggro talents

    Couldn't really add anything, he nailed it all. GL in Act 2 PanCakes ;D
