First things first, here's the WD in question: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/edlike-1346/hero/1430258
Haven't been playing much lately but then got back in to it pretty heavy. I have a pretty decent set of gear and have been experimenting with skills builds.
First question: What gear should I upgrade to push my DPS to the next level? I'm sitting on about 500m so I have a little to spend
Second: What skills do you think I should use? I've been using spiders for the VQ mana sustain and pretty much have 0 mana problems with low IAS and zuni 4p spamming bears/bats. I think I'm going to opt for the cloud of bats rune since it seems pretty popular (I have been using plague bats). Other than that spirit walk and soul harvest seem kind of mandatory.
More: What passives are you using? Do you use garg? Do you take VQ? What do you use to keep it up, and what rune do you use if you use spiders as I do?
I've begun farming for the BoA recipes and all that. Any feedback is appreciated.

I basically snagged all cheap versions of my 4pc zuni (minus the off-hand). over time i will work on upgrading the set pieces themselves to better versions (crit helm, crit ring, AR boots, etc.) but IMO it's smarter to drop less money to get the huge upgrade of acquiring multiple set pieces than it is to save up for one really good set piece.Posted in: Witch Doctor: The Mbwiru Eikura

Being afraid of act 1 with that survivability is a joke. And yes, I play hc too.Quote from Rencol25k hp and 300 all res? Just reading that gave me cancer. My WD has 4th highest all res world-wide (http://www.diablopro...rating.stat_res , Mortis) and I cant simply imagine even starting to play inferno with such low survivability, not even act 1, and you are wondering why you are getting one shot by Rakanoth? That rly made my day.
just a case of someone more concerned with their own ego than with the conversation

lol. how about offering some advice instead of acting like an ass, posting your diabloprogress resistance rank (which nobody cares about), and failing to realize he is playing softcore

i believe big bad voodoo is the one big group spell we bring to the table.Posted in: Witch Doctor: The Mbwiru Eikura
I dont really think you need to rely on garg and dogs as much in groups as you will have the other players keeping the mobs busy (hopefully a monk in there somewhere?)

I've been using a similiar build that I've refined down since 1.0.4:Posted in: Witch Doctor: The Mbwiru Eikura
Basically with LoH you don't have to stress so much about surviving. Spirit vessel is really nice for obvious reasons. I ran without bears for the longest time, but with my current level of survivability I can last long enough to sit still for 3-5 seconds and zerg down a pack. I do the ole Alkaizer farming route with a little bit of modifications. Deaths are very rare.
I picked VQ over gruesome feast because I have a bit of gear (zuni 4 pc) and rarely struggle with mana, It's fun and ridiculous to sustain acid rain throughout the whole crater. I do have to agree that vengeful spirit is totally awesome though. It's great critting for 6-700k.
my wd for reference

After leveling a WD on release I switched to Wiz due to WD's issues. Now that they are buffed I have made WD my main again. I basically just threw all my gear over to my WD from my wiz and it works brilliantly.Posted in: Witch Doctor: The Mbwiru Eikura
I'm a little glass cannon-y (very low resists, but 37k health) but with really high dps i have been having a ball (no trouble clearing the whole game including a4, bosses can be a little tricky with this build though)
Corpse spiders can adapt to the situation you want them most for. I use blazing spiders because they crit for like 60k and keep VQ rolling, and i just use bats to drain my mana. I have used both medusa spiders (slow) and widowmakers (mana) and they are both fun. A lot of people use darts but i find the AI of the spiders too good to pass up as I can chuck them from around the corner, etc.
I use dire bats for a mana sink, but i have seen people use zombie charger with either bears or exploding zombie.
I have absolutely fallen in love with the vengeful spirit ruin of soul harvest. It hits like a truck and it's really satisfying to watch 20 mobs die at once when you soul harvest on them. I use a lot of potions in this build but clear very fast. Spirit vessel is there for the reduced cd on horrify, soul harvest, and spirit walk (and the occasional 'oh shit' moment). Grasp is too good now as well with the damage buff (still using unbreakable grasp). I basically open with a grasp, spirit walk in->soul harvest->walk out+horrify for armor->get spiders up->spam bats. I have seen dire bats crit for up to 700k in the gear i'm currently in, but the average is around 300-400 I would say.

Okay, it's official. Diablo fans posts the worst possible things they can on their home page.
This post is awful in so many ways.
And this particular guy is not just an idiot, but also an asshole.
First of all, this build type has been around forever, and theres 10,000 versions of it floating around the internet, and you literally may have picked the worst possibl one diablofans.
Cold Blooded does NOT affect everything. It affects EVERY SPELL IF THE ENEMY IS CHILLED. And its not confrmed or denied if its a bug, perhaps just bad wording.
This is the first and most obvious BLUNDER with this post. GOD HOW OBVIOUS IS THIS *FACEPALM* YES IM MAD BRO.
Haha, the proof this particular guy from the quote cited EVEN SAYS THAT BLATENTLY.
Next, "Entry Level Melee Wizard." An entry level melee wizard is not going to be able to take the constant 40k+ hits from Act3 and late Act2 Inferno. FORCE ARMOR. IDIOT.
Don't agree with your way of saying most of it, but most of it is true.
First, this is not an "Entry Level Wizard" spec. You need insane amounts of gear that will total in the 30+ million range. Most people hit 60 with less than a million. A million if they've been saving.
Second, relying on gearing around a possible Bug is not a good idea. Of course you'll get some extra progression while you can, but as soon as it's nerfed you have a gear/talent set that are useless. *See the people that kept IAS gear, and then complained when they couldn't clear as much post-nerf*
The spec/gear is useful, and competitive, but please post factual items and not this marketing trash of it being an "Entry Level" Spec for 1-2 million in gear.
not including my weapon i dropped 6-8mil max on the gear that took me through a4 and diablo. weapon cost 8m
