Recently I was lucky enough to get Tasker from kadala, and decided i might as well go full pet build. Im currently doing t3 pretty efficiently, but im really trying to push endgame t5/t6 soonish. I was curious about the steps I should take to better my character and make him end game viable!
Im open to all thoughts and suggestions about spec/gear/reforge
here is my armoryhttp://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/octondo-1407/hero/1675338
Gratz on the tasker, best gloves for pet build indeed, and a pet build is strong. May i ask what you rerolled for the crit chance?
Looking at your gear makes me think you invest in life on hit. The main issue with that is you loose so many stats (it will probably chance in 2.1 with the buffs).
If you want to push to t5/6, you got to increase your toughness. Since you're not going for fetish army, I would drop the cooldown for now.
To make it more concrete: roll the cooldown on shoulders into armor or life% (or craft new: int/vit/all res/armor would be my pick for now). Try to gamble new helm, 78% is low, and you're missing crit chance on there. Amulet: no elemental damage (go physical for the passive fetishes), no int. Can do with an easy upgrade. Farm act1 bounties, the amulets there are pretty good. Gloves, too bad for loh, vit/all res/armor/cd would have been better, but they are hard to get, stick with them. Chest looks ok for now, armor or all res instead of life% would have been better. Bracers, again missing elemental damage. Craft new (phys%/int/vit/cc). Royal ring, reroll the loh to cd or cc (cd will give more dps). Belt: life per second, all res would have been better, but ok item. SOJ: if you put elemental dmg on amu and bracers, you can replace soj with another good ring (the socket and poison on it are not good). Tall mans finger would be best, anything with int/cc/cd and either damage (as or avg dmg) or toughness (vit/armor/all res) would be good for now (blackthorne+aughild gives enough elite dmg, really replace soj until you got a good one). Pants: reroll plague of toads into 2 sockets. Your damage comes from pets, the skill it to summon pets. Getting that extra int will help you survive and kill mobs faster. Weapon and offhand are ok I guess.
For secondary rolls, try to stack health globe bonus and pickup radius (helps with gloves and your passive for cooldown). The frog gives 20 but you might wanna swap that out at some point. Other good secondaries: melee dmg reduction, range dmg reduction, life after kill, and as many different kinds of secondary resist.
Hope this helps you, good luck on rerolling, crafting and happy farming
PS: This is just my opinion on the rolls, they are a basic guideline to get you started, and are in no way suggesting anything "best build".
The majority of your damage atm is coming from the Fetish Sycophants, which do physical. Get +Physical%
LoH is a problematic stat. It takes away primary stats. In your case, this results in a huge drop in potential Critical Hit Damage.
If you feel you need a little more toughness, Use Zombie Dogs/Life Link and try to get a Uhkapian Serpent. Remake your 2 Aughild's pieces until you are able to get (with enchant or baseline) strong toughness stats on the shoulders and +Physical % and Critical Hit Chance on the bracers.
Other than "farm more to get better items", your venues of progress are:
-Grave injustice=thing of the deep. that way you don't have to be close to the mobs and healing becomes less important. First thing to roll at Kadala. You'll go back to Uhkapian when you can farm T5 and want to go t6+ (GR30+)
-Belt, ditch blackthorne and gamble for a Harrington/witching hour. 2P aughild is enough, just do some better bracers.
-Your Jeram is a Jeram but badly rolled. Try to get another one, you may also get a carnival which is a fun build.
Rest of better items are chance of the loot, so good luck. If you drop a Tall Man's finger, remove the RoRg and add an Aughild chest to keep the 3P bonus, Pet DW is actually one of the rare specs that can give the finger to royal grandeur.
Also, note that paragon bonuses do make things better over time so get to it.

If you want permanent fetish army, you cant give a finger to RoRg With said ring you get both the army and aughilds 3pc bonus, its working well for me and i can breeze through t6 quite efficiently with my current gear. Still waiting SMK tho but Rhen'ho with addling toads is quite nice too.
I have some pickup radius on my gear so its fine without thing of the deep, on occasion i miss the epic pickup radius you get with it. I got tired of my gargantuan tho, it has downs syndrome or someshit and that drooling buffoon never hits anything, maybe ill give it a go after 2.1 is here, i hear they implant new brains on our pets then.
Other than that its pretty efficient setup even without SMK, Rhen´ho with addling toads gives some epic cc for t6.
