But with Patch 2.0 out a lot of changes has occured. While going through some of them i realised that the summoning witch doctor now stands much much better, so i made this.
I'm currently farming Torrent 4 with this build (Pre RoS)
RoS: STILL WORKING GREAT!
So the key to this build is the Fetish Sychophants passive paired with Firebats with the Vampire Bats rune for free mana cost. this will allow you to spam it and summon your Fetish army in no time.
If you decide to play solo, use the Enchantress companion with this skill-setup and weapon.
http://us.battle.net/d3/en/item/maximus (get one with Intelligence)
this will yield you another strong pet. and great crowd controls.
You can swap out the Hex ability with something else if you don't find the ability performing well.
here is a few suggestions. (i recently switched Hex to Spirit Walk: Jaunt, for that escape against the really bad elite groups)
(for bosses you might wanna switch Hex to Fetish Army (Head Hunters) or Big Bad Voodoo (Slam Dance)
1. Spirit Walk (Jaunt) or (Healing Journy)
2. Wall of Zombies (Creeper) or (Wrecking Crew)
3. Fetish Army (Head Hunters) or (Tiki Torchers)
4. Big Bad Voodoo (Slam Dance)
5. Mass Confusion (Mass Hallucination) or (Paranoia)
Stats to go for:
Offensive Stats Value:
2. Crit Chance
3. Crit Damage
4. Attack Speed
Defensive Stats Value:
2. All Ressistance
3. Life on Hit
4. Life Regen
This build is amazing and immensely fun ! Thank you very much for sharing it with us :}
