I agree wholeheartedly with the crit issue (what a friend of mine, a mathematician, calls the "boolean crit issue").
On the bright side, haunt animation has been improved to decent levels: hopefully we'll also get a smart target choice for the jump. Maybe, when we will know what the new lingering rune does, we'll able to discuss the skill more carefully. Surely, at least for now, we can say that Draining Spirit + Creeping Death means that you have 25 more mana regen per second (which is incredible). The initial cost is quite steep, but at least for boss fights you shouldn't have mana issues.
By the way, how do you think DoTs will interact with Crushing Blow?

Posted in: News & AnnouncementsQuote from VenaliterI believe it's a maximum of 30% w/ Rabid Dogs. Also, you can have five (!) zombie dogs summoned with their damage buffed by 70% with Zombie Handler and Midnight Feast, for a total of 51% weapon damage per swing, although I'd probably pick Burning Dogs myself.
I think that Burning Dogs damage comes on top of normal bite damage, while Rabid Dogs change bite damage itself, but i may be wrong.
On top of 5 dogs there's a legendary item that makes pets attack 100% faster, and another one for 50% increased pet damage. Add 120% per hit fetish, possibly buffed gargantuan and we're set for a really strong build which doesn't really need too much defensive stuff.

Quote fromstill mindboggled by the dmg on zombie dogs...... should be 200 a 300 % per dog!
Well, now each dogs can deal up to 32% weapon damage, which isn't something to laugh about.

Ow, come on. The game has much more to do than nerfing the only viable WD signature spell...Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

I use only spenders, at the moment. It will be nice if we'll have really good signature spells.
That said, the increased mana cost is probably due to the fact that we'll get 80-100 extra mana for those 10 extra levels.

Today a streamer on twitch had this mace (or axe) that makes toads actually go towards mobs. It's really really brutal.Posted in: Witch Doctor: The Mbwiru Eikura

For what i've seen, the only WD streamer i actually was able to see did not have mana issues. He used Spirit Barrage (well of souls) with Rush of Essence for mana, with no mana problems (in the long time he actually regained mana). SB actually hits very very hard, and has its attack speed augmented. He used Cloud of bats as spender, Spirit Walk, Soul Harvest and and Horrify. He used Piranha with the tornado rune.Posted in: Witch Doctor: The Mbwiru Eikura
The WD doesn't seem weak at all, considering that the used spec and the streamer's equipment was kinda underwhelming (melee-Cloud of Bats spec without pets or strong defensive tools isn't a great idea, imho, in fact he died a lot). I think that WD spenders need a little buff to be on par with other characters, but overall it seems that WD are in a decent spot now.
Before you ask, i wasn't able to see any pet spec, which is really a pity, since the streamer was still looking for pet based legendaries. I think that pet spec will be, at least for many of us, the spec to go for in RoS, since there are some really really sick items.

Someone knows a good WD streamer? I still have to find a decent one.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
