@Chas wow u could not wait a couple of hours to recieve free advice? Damn dude .... dont panic!
Anyway here is some feedback
1h+mojo vs 2H is pretty much the same: u need higher res and armour when using 1H to avoid instakilling yourself vs relfect packs. Easier for you is to start with Life steal Skorn!
The gear you need can be anything, because bats are not consuming a lot of mana, so you dont need zuni set. Basically u have no limitation in gearing. Just you need soj:
- with reduced cost to zombie charger (it might come in handy)
- bats reduction: basically not mandatory
- with locus swarm dmg not mandatory as well
Definitely craft all possible pieces: gloves, bracers,shoulders and amulet
Skills to use are also up to your preference, just try to keep the following once always in your build:
- grave injustice
- gruesome feast
- spirit walk - any rune u like (most likely jaunt is a suitable start)
- Soul hartvest: vengeful spirit (other runes are not that good)
- Paranoia: mc or BBV: slam
Rest are optional, depending on your style. Get mroe info in this thread:http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/7426593693
U can start with very simple build like:http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/witch-doctor#hcUdXQ!cTY!acacYb
Till u get used to using bats lone, you can include zombie bears in your build:http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/witch-doctor#fcUdjQ!cTY!ccZcYb
When gearing, make sure to have 1 item with pick up radius.
gl and be more patient ;)
