I would reroll vit > phys % in a heartbeat. You can get vit on other pieces. getting CDR is hard. amulet, rings, shoulders, gloves, weapon, shield. You basically want all of it.

So I know I've seen it all over the place saying that you should be rolling off weapon damage ideally and get another stat (like AD, CDR) but I'm trying to understand why weapon damage plays no part in the damage equation, or not much. I understand that steed charge: spiked barding has 0 weapon damage modifiers. However, our primary damage source Bombardment: Barrels of Spikes has both:
2850% total weapon damage and the rune increases the damage by 200% of your thorns. Wouldn't you ideally want high weapon damage as well, since that's boosted by 2850% * 200% * thorns? Or am I just totally misunderstanding how the weapon damage modifier works?

I just changed from LoN blessed shield to LoN bombard last night. I think 2 min is easily my average for a rift, if not faster. Half the time is picking up loot. Thorny pony pales in comparison. The DPS boost from LoN is just too good. You need really specific gear to do it well, but if you have it, it's great. I use ancient swiftmount and in-geom in the cube. You don't even need mortal drama for TX, things die so fast.

I find it's not that viable for higher GRs. You lose too much mitigation compared to other builds. The nice thing about LoN bombard is that you can gear around having much higher toughness than shield, since you need dps stats for shield to be effective. I enjoyed shield for half a week or so farming TX and some GRs, but after swapping to LoN bombard last night, I can't go back to shield. It's too underpowered in comparison.

I still don't understand why pigsticker is better than an IAS doombringer. Since all of your skills are physical, wouldn't the 20% boost be better? You can get doombringer to almost 1.5 aps. Pig sticker might be able to get 1.61, but is that really worth the loss of 20% damage to everything? I know it's probably additive, but it still seems like a lot.

This is an interesting topic that. I've also been looking for an ancient SS or AW. Why are people suggesting GR low 40s instead of full T6 clears if the consensus is to not gamble at kadala? Is there a higher leg drop chance for these things from a RG over just full T6 clears?
I seem to find that clearing T6 full on average, yields just as much, if not more than a RG kill in the low 40s and you don't have to farm trial keys to do it.

May 17, 2014So I managed to pick up a rhen'ho flayer and I really like the build. I'm doing quite well with it, but I'm not sure about my gear. I've been experimenting an seeing what I have access to.Posted in: Witch Doctor: The Mbwiru Eikura
Here's a link to my profile:
The main question is, do I stay with my magefist or do I try to get a Tasker and Theo? The toads do quite a lot of damage, about 4 - 8 million. My fetishes hit for about that much too.
Is it better to focus mainly on my toads + WP, or do I focus more on my sycophants? It's hard cause Iv'e thrown about 5000 shards to a T&T and no luck.
By the way, I'm still using some suboptimal gear because I'm not going to farm mats to craft new pieces while there's community buff
I'm open to wacky and awesome suggestions though!
May 16, 2014takuto712 posted a message on Showcased Build - Ultra tanky, high effective damage, cold and dots. Fast & safe T4 farm, easy T5, do-able T6.I actually JUST got the frostburn last night trying to get T&T. THe rolls were okay but not great as far as CC/CHD. but it looks like I got lucky cause I got one with 15% cold and 39% freeze. Low int, but IAS isn't an entirely wasted stat w/ fetishes now.Posted in: Witch Doctor: The Mbwiru Eikura
The freeze effect is fairly underwhelming after running about 10 - 12 rifts with it. Spirit barrage won't constantly chill, it's probably just on first cast. It might shine more in t5, but in t4, I don't need it. I decided to remove the diamond from the helm and replace with amethyst to help pad my life because I gave up 749 vitality on my gloves.
What IS noticeable is the 15% frost damage. It took my initial hits from 4 - 6 mil up to 8 or 9 mil. I don't know why, but it does heh.

Well that's good to know. Then the real question is if it's worth giving up unity + and ice climbers for asheara'sQuote from Faldrath
Yeah, that happens (you can't see damage numbers while they're hexed), but they're definitely taking damage, so don't worry about that.Quote from takuto712
I have tried Asheara's before and for some reason, I was quite annoyed with it. It might also be that the chicken was throwing me for a loop cause I wasn't seeing any damage numbers over the chickens' heads so I thought they went immune while CC'd.

Fast & safe T4 farm, easy T5, do-able T6.I would think that I would take a string of ears over blackthorne? Hard to say. Harrington is just too good with our dots though. Not to mention, it is massive damage with fetishes. I find that since I have fetishes and dogs now, I survive more easily than before.Posted in: Witch Doctor: The Mbwiru Eikura

I don't have good gear for scoundrel because I dont' get dex gear so I am not sure how much added damage they will bring to the table. That being said, I am willing to give it another go. I could go asheara shoulders, legs, gloves + aughild's chest, bracers and still leave room for iceclimbers. Or eventually I can go asheara shoulders, legs, boots + aughild's chest and bracers and leave room for T&T. In order to do this all however, I would need to give up unity for RoRG, which has way worse stats than my unity.
It's really hard to decide, but I suppose testing is the only way to know for sure
May 15, 2014Hrm, that's a shame seeing how I spent about 5 million more gold to get +Haunt damage on my serpent offhand. I do hope they fix it, if it's indeed broken.Posted in: Witch Doctor: The Mbwiru Eikura
2500 + shards and no T&T from kadala yesterday or the day before. Will try to get a pair tonight...if I even rift. That community event buff is difficult to deal with. I can either farm extra rift fragments, or I can get a lot more legendary drop % in rifts ... hard to choose.
On a sidenote, I'm trying to tinker with my gear and could use some advice.
Assuming gloves are reserved for T&T, what do I do about my legs/boots, etc? I'm not exactly sure what I want to get out of things. If I'm willing to give up Unity, I could use my RoRG (only level 61 but pretty good stats) and go for 2pc aughild's and 4 pc asheara but is it worth it? I think anyway. I can do aughild chest + bracers, and then asheara shoulders, leg, boots.
Iceclimbers are really nice though... what would you guys do? I'm interested in your ideas.
May 14, 2014Yeah, I would have to do some testing with MoJ + T&T vs quetz and see which comes out on top. But that's the beauty of the state of the game right nowPosted in: Witch Doctor: The Mbwiru Eikura
May 14, 2014I wanted to test this out tonight as well. Although I'm not sure if I can incorporate it into the cold/dot build with fetishes. Does anyone know if you equip the ring and use circle of life, do you still get that gargantuan dog?Posted in: Witch Doctor: The Mbwiru Eikura
