I've seen threads on it, so yes, I've done some research, but usually it's people that have just said "I've heard poison works too". I haven't really heard of anybody having sets for poison and fire/physical and comparing them.
I'm going with a poison build right now just because the items I have at the moment that favor it. Seems alright. I can do T5 solo pretty easily (although I still get hit pretty hard); haven't tried T6. I have decent gear with MoJ, T&T and TMF, but no set bonuses yet and only 40% poison. I just keep wondering if I'd be "melting" things on T6 right now If I had physical or fire instead. I was thinking about not getting 4 piece Zuni, but if I do I guess I could just use the poison fetishes so they get the bonus as well. Can anybody tell me If I'll be weaker than physical/fire WDs? Thanks!
I'm trying to build to a full poison set for my WD since I'm using Carnevil/fetishes. It's only an alt, so I'm no expert, but it's working well on t3 so far.
That will definitely work for T3, but loses its value on higher difficulties because any pet build requires the Mask of Jeram. If you like poison pet builds, I recommend trying Mask instead of Carnevil, using Zuni 4p, and using the poison fetishes from Army.
Nope i use Poison with pet build. I run t6 rift guard kill runs in 4-7 minutes and full clears in 7-10. Poison IMO is the strongest of all the elements. you can get 80% poison damage and still wear all the necessary pieces for the rest of your build. It is awesome. Once zuni is fixed (havent tested if it is already in 2.0.6) it will be even better because the head hunters rune makes your fetish hit very very hard. Couple this with a carnevil build + starmetal things get really crazy.
