If ur tight on the cash I think any helm with mana, regen and cc is viable... The set just polishes the build but I think it can still work with out it.Posted in: Witch Doctor: The Mbwiru Eikura

Posted in: Witch Doctor: The Mbwiru EikuraQuote from XezianThis build looks so cool, and honestly it seems like u are really owning that trash mobs and elites. Can't wait to get home and try it out. Btw if i may ask what is your mana regeneration, and is the 4 piece set a must have?
Base mana is 90/s so w/o Zuni it's 70/s. 20/s isn't much on paper but it def helps.... I tried testing a tal rash chest for the 18k dps boost but the mana resource needed goes up more than 20/s. maybe with a nice rolled archon chest it might be less noticeable but then 7-8k dps vs 1 free cast every 5 secs....
I decided to stay with Zuni.

Glad you like it!
I've been crafting and I got lucky with a 9.5cc,88cd int Ammy so It motivated me to look at the other crafts and lead me to some very interesting findings!
If you already have the cash and decent gear and your rolling for that 1% roll it's def worth the gamble and roll gloves of vitality over int. it may take a lot more rolls but by rolling vit gloves you have a much higher potential to roll vit and only loose 30int in the long run...
Gloves of vitality = int 300 / vit 330
Gloves of intellect = int 330 / vit 200
Max main stat possible roll.
A trifecta in vit gloves with int would be sexy...
I'm actually gonna drop Zuni chest for the new craft chest due to the vitality rolls on the archon of int pattern.
I'd loose 20 mana/sec but my base is 90.6 so 70 isn't much of a loss if I gain 7k dps and 15k life...
Basically the new crafts look like they have the potential to put a WD at 80k health with over 230k unbuffed dps. My long term goal.
Diablo.incgamers.com has an indepth article on the crafts front page just scroll down a bit.
Happy hunting G/L

Projax, and allPosted in: Witch Doctor: The Mbwiru Eikura
I have a build that is incredibly fast on mp7+
Granted it is quite gear dependent but more on the mana regen side
Primary attack - spirit barrage - well of souls
Second attack - z bears
Spirit walk - life or mana regen (this is dep on ur gear and base mana)
Soul harvest - siphon
Dogs - life - if u have more life regen u could swap this for garg for more damage but I like the distraction of 3 pets over 1 vs damage
Last rune is change able I like to use voodoo simply because I dnt need it but when I do use it the time on elites is cut in half.
Passive - spiritual attune, rush of essence, g-feast or blood rites
Last rune depends on what ur doing.
I prefer feast as with my gear setup mobs die so fast that the health globes give more than enough resources back
If u don't have the base mana blood rites will keep me 100% manna up with out s-walk and in fact if I just cast well of souls I'm gaining mana due to higher regen rate I only start to loose mana when I throw bears in
I only have 29k health which if I had more I would be godly with this build do working on it.
But this build allows if u attack rite to cast bears and spirit barrage at the same time due to cast animation timers. And not loose much mana. Rush of essence paired with these runes puts me over 130 mana/s then if I really need swalk is there.
Basically I clear mp 7 as fast. Very fast. Bears I hate never wanted to use it lol but you just can't avoid it... This build isn't easy as some times on the brink of death but thanks to life steal and crazy dps I can stay up.
I'll work on a vid later this week check out my build on d3.com
This in my opinion is the strongest WD build and with blood rites on can be used in übers for crazy damage I've long fights never loosing mana...
Love the WD so any info I can add on my play experience helps me and the community. Take a look and let me know what u think.
For bears and well of souks to be cast same time:
Start channelling with Right click or left holding shift. Then while holding it down spam click well of souls watch as the animations over lap allowing the cast of both same time.
708% bears same time. Per second
Happy hunting guys,
Just swapped rain dance rune for slam dance rune. Bears uses more mana here but if u just cast well of souls the damage increase is huge due to how well of souls benefits from ias. = )

Hey guys,Posted in: Witch Doctor: The Mbwiru Eikura
I just wanted to drop in an interesting find I discovered last night.
The new red gems in "some" weapons will be higher dps than that of a green gem.
For example if you currently own a manajuma with 100% cd gem then if u put a radiant ruby in your dps will be higher...
The new Marq gems are really quite costly but in case of daggers and non black damage weapons they can be awesome well not the green one.
I gained a 4ok base dps upgrade from the 160 min/max gem over putting in a 110% emerald.
100 mil for 40 k is def worth it...
I've looking at the numbers and it looks like red gems increase your base crit dam and the green ones increase your top end potential...
Used d3up.com to calculate these but it's not showing the new content in slots...
Any how check out my profile for my manajuma which is now
2.8 life steal.
Was a tiny 939 before and now it hits like a truck.
Weapons like echo gain more from the green gem. I think it might be to do with it being a "black weapon"
Happy for the new dagger upgrade =) at this stage it's just a huge buff to witch doctors.
Someone else take a look and comment = )

Hey all,Posted in: Witch Doctor: The Mbwiru Eikura
I currently run the fetish passive and I can say having 3-5 up is not really worth the trouble esp if your using bears as your main out put...
With the right gear the best skill to use for fetish procs is bats!
I currently use plague bats and I get 10 little fettish up in no time with a small 1.56 attack speed. I'm planning on boosting my attack speed but depends on my mana efficiency. Currently I have 90.6 base mana regen and with haunt on targets that can jump to 151.8/s so I have no problems keeping mana up and in dire situations pop spirit walk honored guest to take a bit of pressure off...
The main and awesome thing is the little guys are their ability to distract and be damage meat shields... I'm running garg and dogs and it is really quite enjoyable to run with a monster army. Elites don't take long as I can stand behind the pets and spam 270 damage per second off the plague bats which at the moment works better in long fights/higher mp's than bears cause of the mana up keep and life steal values. The crazy thing about bats is that ur constantly generating more fettish ever second.
I'd post a build but I'm on my mobile feel free to look my char up
My plague bats melts roughly 800 and up per second to all in the cone. Plus haunt damage and pets means fights dnt take long at all mp7 is my sweet spot at the moment
Used them in übers mp 10 also they are weak against dot damage and annoying as fuck against reflect dam but I'm looking forward to jumping on later now 107 is live for the pet upgrade!
Try this out let me know how u go

Hey all,Posted in: Witch Doctor: The Mbwiru Eikura
Cheers huminator for fraps... I've been using it, just need to find my computer after effects or final cut to compress. A few things;
This build is hard to beat, a few things I've noticed that really make it shine though are :
If your using acid u def want a visage with cc and acid cc. Makes a huge difference on damage per cast. I find the "acid cc" actually triggers more than regular cc.
The chicken... And horrify seem bugged slightly... I need feed back, but from my experience the speed boost doesn't feel like the amount shown. It feel like unless I trigger them after spirit walk they don't effect... Horrify by its self is not much faster then the 24% speed cap even though it should be. Same for chicken.... Together they feel better.
I actually like the chicken rune more than horrify now as another source of aoe dps is always welcomed vs a fear. Sometimes I can pop the chicken explode a pack pop it again, which makes it more useful than horrify.
I've been trying to work it out but it also looks like if mobs die off screen to far away you don't actually gain the full xp. I was trying to get locust swarm, pest rune to work but It requires much higher dps. The good - hits everything and keeps jumping as long as you run and pull mobs... I didn't have it recorded, but I had the craziest swarm on tyreal's bridge hit it and just ran through to the end in spirit walk running along side haha it was like a race... That bridge I managed 4mil xp in 2min. Which would be 120mil per hour under the right conditions... Havnt been able to make work since. Maybe someone out there can.
The prob is actually more on elites rather than trash... Or shielded mobs...
Can't wait till para grind is over... 150k unbuffed in para gear vs 250 in dps gear... 40k from ring alone... in full dps I run at 515k with follower, 5 feast, 5 soul harvest, 4 dogs with provoke...
Makes me feel like my wd's hard hours havnt payed off as much... With those stats higher para is def more efficient item hunt wise not xp...
Anyone that looks my profile up on d3.com that dps is fully buffed... Check dprogress for real figure 192 no Passives etc

Posted in: Witch Doctor: The Mbwiru EikuraQuote from ProjaxsLeoric signet mp1 works realy nice - would propably keep 70mil xp/hour with an ease.
The 70mil per hour is from the time you enter the game or the time you have 5 stacks?
Can you please film 1 run showing your xp gain clearly? Also I need a stable program for recording gameplay, what do you guys recommend?
