Hi guys, this is my first post on these forums and I apologies if I have done anything incorrect.
Im curious as to what everyone is thinking of doing for PVP as a Witch Doctor. I know it may be far away, however when you start to spend hundreds of millions of gold on single items like I do, you can't help but think to save yourself the money to gear for PVP instead of PVE.
Here is a list of my believed to be most powerful WD spells!
-GARGANTUAN and ZOMBIE DOGS
Pets will be one of the WD greatest tools in pvp. They will mitigate tons of dmg from you and will give you time to deal some dps yourself. WD having rather low single target dps will need all the time they can get to be attacking all the time. The bruizer rune will be amazing.
- Corpse Spiders (especially slow rune)
With a targetting AI and extremely high single target dps, Corpse spiders will easily be one of the WD's greatest spells for PVP
- Spirit Barage
Another big single target DPS spell with a target tracking function, you should never miss with this one.
- Splinters (snake to the face)
This spell with a 30% chance to stun (or was it 15%) will be very useful in pvp particularly against a barb or perhaps a monk if you're out of his teleporting punch distance.
- Grasp of the dead
A great slow spell to give you time to do some dmg or run away. Reminds me of that assasin spell from d2 I cant remember what its called though. I think this will be very VERY useful
- Sacrifice zombie dogs
This spell has great dps and if you stack zombie dog cooldowns on items, i'm sure you will have some interesting build in your hands (however homonculous' dps makes me want to steer clear from sacrfice builds - -). The Dogs are also very fast and will send a ranged person in a panic.
- HeX and HORRIFY
This spell is going to be absoulty insane for WD vs Melee. I was stressing about how are going to beat a monk with teleport punch but hex would easily deal with this (as would grasp of the dead). Did a 2-hand 200kdps barb just leap on you? Np hex. Horrify works the same I suppose lol.
- Haunt, Locust swarm
Good ol DoTs these will come in handy, particularly haunt. Im actually quite sure that a WD could kite a player for the whole fight with enough CC to keep him safe and keep casting haunt.
- Fetish army
Perhaps the cooldown is a little too long but if you can kill the guy in 15 seconds, summoning fettishes would be the best support you could use. Theyre EXTREMELY fast and their DPS is not great but they can TANK quite a lot of dps so they will be very useful. For 15 seconds.
Anyway I think thats about the most effective PVP spells.
So tell me, what will YOU do for PVP and what the hell should I do!? If I gotta spend 100 mil on a mojo it better last me a good few months! Have you prepared any builds? What have you theory crafted?
