    posted a message on Pet dmg and elemental dmg
    So made a post on official forums about this topic.

    Not sure if anyone have brought this up before or not. But I find it to be an important question, and would really appreciate your thoughts and concerns about it :)

    Link to official forum post: http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/10699710251

    And the post if you just want to read it here:

    So have been thinking about how the pets work and their damage. I really like pets, and use them in every build i make. But one thing I find strange is how they work.

    Since patch 2.0.5 blizzard changed some runes to make the pets benefit from more elemental damage. But in base all pets do physical damage. which means that if I want to use pets I almost have to stack for physical dmg and skipp buffing my other skills.

    I had an idea of using Rhen'ho Flyer that makes the frogs explode twice and seek out targets, at the same time with pets. So I made a build that utilized the pets and exploding frogs with fire dmg. Then I choose the pet runes with fire dmg and tried. Sure it was fun and went good for me. But compared to a wd that stacked physical dmg instead of fire, I did so much less dmg.

    So the question I ask is why the pets when using a rune with new elemental dmg (like fire) not also have their base attack do that elemental dmg..

    So for example make the burning dogs do fire dmg when they bite and their aura instead of their bite do physical dmg and their aura fire.. Since this just makes it so hard to gear properly to make a build as good as just using physical and pets...

    If there's anything I have understood wrong with topic or if you guys feel the same way I do don't hesitate to comment and maybe we can make blizzard change the way they work for the better :)



    Thx for reading and if there is anything you feel is missing or something I have all wrong, please comment :) And be sure to go read comment on official post to get it some desired love so blizzard might change something...

    I actually myself use that ring, have not tried how big difference it does if you have 5-6 dogs or the big one... But good point! Might have to try that out and see the difference :D

    posted a message on [WD] "Burn them pets" build
    Hey everyone :)

    So since patch 2.0.5 I wanted to try make a new build from with some of the new elemental changes to some of the runes.

    The skill that got changed and makes this build complete is the change:


          • Gargantuan
            • Skill Rune - Bruiser
                Damage type changed from Physical to Fire.


          • Fierce Loyalty
            • Has been redesigned:
                Now while you have a Zombie Dog, Gargantuan, or Fetish following you and are not in combat, your movement speed is increased by 30%
              • Now also allows you to have 1 additional Zombie Dog summoned at a time


          • Zombie Handler
            • Now also increases your health by 20% in addition to your Zombie Dogs and Gargantuan.

    The Build

    Plague of Toads / Explosive Toads
    This is our main ability we use. Together with Rhen'ho Flayerthis skill is good dmg and according to me fun to use. The double explosion makes every toad do 245% damage x2. And every cast is 3 toads that seek out monsters. (And for a really fun moment, use this skill inside missile dampening).

    Locust Swarm / Searing Locusts
    A great dot that spread quick and do great dmg. It is our only spell that use mana, which makes this build not needing a lot of mana regen to work. So full Zuni is no need, but it will make the difference on another skill.

    Spirit Walk / Jaunt
    The best survivability spell for us WD's. An easy pick and I have chosen the rune jaunt to have that extra second instead of get back mana, since mana is never a problem in this build. An option is to change this around to whatever you find necessary for you. It can be used to get some more dmg going, or get back some health if needed. So rune for this spell is whatever you like :)

    Summon Zombie Dogs / Burning Dogs
    The basic WD pets. Good for keeping monsters come close to you.

    Gargantuan / Bruiser
    A strong pet, and the skill that changed in 2.0.5 so it now does fire dmg instead of physical. It gives a bit of cc, and some good damage. And if you have Strongarm Bracersthey might give a small dmg boost when he knocks back monsters.

    The last skill is changing depending if you have full zuni set or not!

    For full zuni set:
    Fetish Army / Tiki Torchers
    As been seen everywhere, fetish army does insane amount of dmg. And with full zuni set you can have them at all time, which is great dmg output. I went for the tiki torchers rune in this build for the fire dmg.

    If you not have full zuni set:
    Big Bad Voodoo / Slam Dance
    A great buff that is perfect for those elite packs and bosses. Good if you play in group since all get the benefit of it. The only thing I find bad about it is if the monsters move too much. Then you don't get to use the buff since you don't want to stand too far away and cast toads. But if in a group with someone to pull monsters together this spell have great potential.


    Passives:

    Pierce The Veil
    A perfect passive to increase the dmg of both you and your pets. Since we only have one skill that use mana we don't care if that spell use a bit more mana each cast. So the 20% dmg increase is a must.. :)

    Midnight Feast
    A passive to increase the amount of zombie dogs we have, and increase the damage our zombie dogs and gargantuan does.

    Fierce Loyalty
    A passive skill that changed in 2.0.5, so now we get an extra zombie dog out of it. But the best part is the 30% ms while we have a pet with us. It is great for moving between packs and while doing bounties.

    The last passive is also depending if you have full zuni or not!

    passive for full zuni:
    Zombie Handler
    This passive gives us another zombie dog, which makes us have 6. It also increases the health of our pets and us by 20% (Before it did only buff out pets health, but since patch 2.0.5 it now also gives us more healt).

    If not full zuni:
    Fetish Sycophants
    The reason behind this passive is that it summons fetishes fast when we use toads. And since we don't have full zuni this makes us keep up a good army of fetishes all the time. The reason I don't use this if I have full zuni is since right now there is a bug that makes this fetishes replace the fetishes summoned by spell.


    The Gear

    The most important things to look for in this build is:


    • Mask of Jeram, this helm buffs out pets by a lot. So I would say it is a mandatory pick.
    • Rhen'ho Flayer, makes our frogs do double damage and seek out monsters. Most important item in this build.
    • Tasker and Theo, another item that increases our pets damage. And they do most of our damage.
    • Full Zuni set is not a must, but it is great to have for the fetishes.
    • +% fire dmg gear! All out spells are fire, and this buffs everything. So go for this rather than +% skill dmg if you have to choose.
    • (+% skill dmg: fetishes. If you have full zuni this might be a good option).

    How To Play

    The build is really simple to play. You start by casting your locust swarm. Then just keep spamming toads (to do damage and if you don't have full zuni build up your army of fetishes). Pets will run around like crazy and nuking everything they see. So just sit back and relax with your toads and you will be able to handle higher torment in anytime ;)


    So now fellow witch doctors. Venture out into Sanctuary and purge this world with fire. As they say: fight fire with fire. And the monsters of the burning hells will have a hard time keeping up!

    posted a message on I'm concerned about seasons.
    There is actually a HC-only item... the amulet that saves you when taking fatal dmg. Or they removed that item? :o So Even if that item is useless in SC, it's still only able to drop in HC mode.

    Quote from Txc

    I dont think its rocket science to figure out the build, IF you have those items...

    The problem is that, in order to play this build, you need some SPECIFIC items, which will make it viable...

    What if you never drop those items to play that build?

    Its better to start thinking for viable buids without the need of use SPECIFIC items to make them viable...
    Welcome to RoS. Every spec that has been made and showcased have and will be with specific legendaries. That is how diablo 3 will work now. This is what blizzard wants for the game, for us to find a legendary and build a spec around that. So all specs will be built around legendaries. Different amount of them. But I don't think anyone want to be rolling around in rare gear when they find a decent legendary.

    So trying to find viable builds that don't need specific items is what we will be doing first hours of lvl 70. When you start to build upward the higher difficulties there will only be specs around specific legendaries. And I actually like that this is the case for one...

    When going up in diff so the monsters get more life will make the dots be more useful, compared to lower diff. At right amount of hp the monsters won't die as quick from your teammates and using the dots will seem not as spamming. I agree that dots can be useless and feel like something that have to be done all the time to be efficient. But I feel that as long as the monsters have high enough hp that feeling is gone and all is fine :)

    And for streams.. I don't know which WD streams you looked at. But there sure is wd's that don't use the frozen bear skills. And still doing fine. Not sure what is most efficient. But in the long run farming with a build you like always makes you farm more.
