    The game should be easy. Until you start pushing past the normal crap. So. This all makes sense.

    Note: I use pretty much the same setup with my Zunimassa set.

    Witch Doctor Damage Reduction. Well at the moment on my Witch Doctor I am running the dagger and off hand that work in tandem with Grasp of the Dead. There are many places to get your damage reduction. You are asking about Soul Harvest Dagger/Bracers. This is only one source. I run the Grasp of the Dead things and will happily put an Aquilla Cuirass into my cube once I find it. With that setup and the first grasp rune I am never out of mana and can spam Grasp all day everyday. In the end, find places to put damage reduction. This isn't only for HC. I solo both HC and SC. When I solo, survival is my primary focus on all classes.


    When I group, if I am a melee class. I pretty much go super tank and let my friends do the damage.

    I am built pet eccentric. I have seen the cookie cutter builds and do not like them. So a list of changes I made that I am happy with.
    Helm: Mask of Jeram with Helltooth Set in its other places.
    Neck: Ess of Johan. Why? Because it pulls mobs to where I am casting.
    Belt: Witching Hour
    Bracers: Jeram Bracers, I like my Walls they contain mobs.
    Rings: Tall Man, Short Man, Ring of Royal Grandeur. One in cube. Told ya, all about my pets.
    Weapon/Off-Hand: Deadly Rebirth/Wilken's Reach. Grasp of the Dead-Unbreakable Grasp. Your spams. Yes floor effects stack.
    Cubed: Weapon-Uhkapian Serpent is 30% damage reduction.
    Cubed: Armor-Aquilla Cuirass is 50% damage reduction.
    It is important to note that all pieces of your armor that can roll +armor NEED TO HAVE +armor. Armor and resists should be relatively on the same % Damage reduced for optimal performance. Note: my gear is not yet optimized for all of this yet. But, I will put some stuff down to help more.
    Hit for 10 million.
    Armor 75%: Reduced to 2.5 million
    Resist 75%: reduced to 625k
    Aquilla Cuirass 50%: reduced to 312,500
    Uhkapian Serpent 30%: Reduced to 218,750.
    This is how I work all my characters. Can my WD survive that hit? Yes. Can he recover from that hit? Yes. Now we work on damage.
