    posted a message on My 1.0.4 build
    For my first foray in to 1.0.4 i went with this: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/witch-doctor#WZUdYT!dWg!baZZYa

    However my mana bar never even moved, so i'm going to try http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/witch-doctor#WfUdYT!dWg!bcZZYa

    Basically switch out Grasping Dead for Bears for a little on demand burst, and switch to healing Journey on Spirit Walk to top myself or my pets off.

    I was running a RoT sort tankdoc kinda build. Between pet survivability increase, mana regen buff, and RoT mana reduction, pretty sure i can throw bears on my right click for on demand burst and do amazingly well (as well as change From Honored Gues to Healing Journey on spirit walk).

    So far i'm very impressed with pet changes. they're more useful and capable, but not D2 summonmancer where you'd kick back and let them do all the work.

    Pierce the Veil affects pets (as does Gruesome Feast).

    Gargantuan gets similar "force armor" as dogs. Gargantuan will scale with players life and on top of that, at lv60 he gets additional +50% from the players life (according to blue-post by lyrilla). It seems that they will make the Gargantuan to be both Damage Dealer and Tank (while the dogs are distractions and meatshields).

    The kill-speed increase by using pets won't be significant compared to now, but at least it will be noticeable.

    awesome, and also a good reason not to go crazy over datamined notes. I'm perfectly content now.

    Seeing as there wasn't really anything i didn't like in the notes (no i do not like VQ builds) yeah, i'll probably wait till after the patch to even start playing him again (starting Act 2 inferno)

    PtV affecting pets would be awesome. overall i really am happy pets are being changed (although all talk is about dogs, does the gargantuan not get the same "force armor" or anything?), i don't want D2 necro where i summoned skeletons then kicked back with a sandwhich and a cold one, but it'd be nice is they did do a bit more than now with a total tank gear set.

    Quote from cw30000

    WD is nerfed. Yes, the increase damage is good, but over all, the class is the weakness class. If you going to nerfed VQ, at the very least, decrease the resource requirement.

    Wiz take 10 seconds with no passive to recharge all resource. WD requires 13 seconds with VQ active. So how is this a bluff?

    From a design perspective, I'm pretty sure mana was not mean to build, or be spent, as quick as Arcane Power

    better pet scaling/survivability, reworking of VQ and base mana regen, faster cast animations for abilities i want to use, but didn't because they felt awkwardly slow...yeah that's pretty much my checklist down to the letter.

    Quote from darthuser6328

    The thing is we as the paying customers should not have to use an additional security tool like an authenciator. Blizzard should find a way to secure their own servers. By saying we should use an authenciator they are essentially sayinig their servers are not secure.

    Their servers are secure (as can be probably, nothing is 100%) as required by any standards most likely required for companies that handle CC information, you are not (relatively speaking), and that's where the authenticator stops things. It's not just blizzard defense force fanboys chiming rebuttals, the average security of a personal PC is the weak link, you are who hackers target, not blizzards servers (although i imagine someone's tried).

    As far as i know (i've only been invested in Bnet since i started WoW about 4 years ago) Blizzards servers have never been proven to be compromised. doesn't mean it can't happen, but if you're a betting man, you usually bet on it being a local PC security fail.

    posted a message on Witch Doctor Build: "The Rainman"
    Quote from xkill911

    I'm using Acid Rain and Unbreakable Grasp to kinda sorta do the same thing in nightware. how's does Rain of Toads compare to Acid Rain?

    If i had to make a totally backhanded gut check, i'd say more dps, easier on the mana, but a much smaller damage radius.

    I'm kinda surprised how mana friendly this is, with just spiritual attunement and even with PtV I'm getting off plenty of casts with SPirit walk and Darts still waiting in the wings, but i've not gotten in a prolonged battle yet (and i'm only on Hell). the first thing that occured to me though, and maybe it's just that i suck at kiting or something, but i switched in Grasp for Big Bad Voodoo. otherwise yeah, i really like it.

    posted a message on Nerfs / Boosts / Fixes you want
    I'd like VQ to scale with each ability on CD rather than a absolute threshold of 4. But if a slight nerf there allowed some buff elsewhere like our innate mana regen would be kinda nice i guess.

    I just don't like the mechanic but i've not really found anything else that works as well as i'd like since the later portion of nightmare.

    Also it feels like my monk's mystic Ally with the Fire Ally rune is way more powerful than any of my WD pets which seems...odd to say the least since pets are kind of a WD bullet point, you'd think we'd have the most powerful ones.
