Hello, I wanted to ask on what is Jerams mask affects all
1 Are your companions affected by the passive opportunist?
2 Counts the Fetish Army as well?
3 The evoked by fetishes by Gidbinn?
4 Does my runes "Burning Dogs" and "Stink bomb" counts for pet damage?

Good question, also curious about the answer.

There is yet to come a definitive answer, maybe you can be the first!
To speak in name of a guy across the big pool:

Make new level 1 WD, grab his weapon, then delete that WD.

Use amulet and rings with +min damage only. No mojo, no damage range.

Test without Mask, then test with Mask. The outcome will be conclusive.

Hi all, got the Mask and tested it on Normal Act 1 Ghouls.

The Mask buffs the Meele Physical Damage of all following Witch Doctor Pets:
Fetish Sycophants http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/class/witch-doctor/passive/fetish-sycophants
Fetish Army http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/class/witch-doctor/active/fetish-army
Zombie Dogs http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/class/witch-doctor/active/summon-zombie-dogs
Gargantuan http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/class/witch-doctor/active/gargantuan

Item Pets seems also to be buffed by it:
Gidbinn http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/item/the-gidbinn
Maximus Demon http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/item/maximus
There are some more Item Pets, i couldn't test them because i don't own them.

Because the Item Summoned Pets have a fixed Damage Value, they don't scale with your DPS, but you can increased any Pet Damage with the +X% Physical Damage Affix, which i use on my Bracer.

You can also buff the Damage of Runes like Gargantuan Big Stinker with the matching Element +% Affix, Poison Damage in that Case.
Crit Chance and Attack Speed are also working well with this setup. Not sure about Crit Damage.

The Passive Skill Pierce the Veil http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/class/witch-doctor/passive/pierce-the-veil also buff all Pet Damage (including Item Pets).

Fetish Sycophants or Gidbinn Pets are not getting buffed by +% Fetish Army Damage.

Runes of Skills that summon Minons are not getting buffed by the Mask, they seem only to Scale with your DPS and the +% Elemental Damage affix.
Acid Cloud Lob Blob Bomb http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/class/witch-doctor/active/acid-cloud
Zombie Charger http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/class/witch-doctor/active/zombie-charger
Corpse Spiders http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/class/witch-doctor/active/corpse-spiders

A Meele Pet focused Doc Build could look like this:
Jerams Mask http://us.battle.net/d3/en/item/mask-of-jeram-3OrCkW
Zuni Chest with +15% Fetish Army http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/item/zunimassas-marrow
Zuni Ring http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/item/zunimassas-pox
Zuni Mojo http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/item/zunimassas-string-of-skulls
Zuni Boots http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/item/zunimassas-trail
Tasker and Theo http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/item/tasker-and-theo
The Gidbinn http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/item/the-gidbinn
Rest +Crit, Attack Speed and +% Physical Damage

Enchantress with Maximus http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/item/maximus and Attack Speed Rings, Amu

My Build:
Current: http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/witch-doctor#SRUQPY!VWe!cZabbc
RoS: http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/witch-doctor#SRUlPY!VWea!cZaZbc

Because i am playing on Hardcore, i use this Build to be pretty Safe on Disconnects and to keep Elites away from me. I use my Mouse Skills to AoE the Enemies while my Pets doing the Single Target Damage and Tanking them. Big Bad Voodoo + Fetish Army melt Elites in Seconds on T3.
Not using Gargantuan because he is to slow and the Zombie dogs are better Tanks and i get more Survivability with their Leeching Beasts or Life Link Rune.
Would love to get the rest new Zuni set with the awesome persistent Fetish Army Bonus.

@Ateni: ty a lot for the infos!!

i got some more questions, maybe you know the answer. :)

How many gibinn fetishes can u have? Do they scale with your own DPS?

and does Chance to deal x% area damage work on any of the fetishes?

I tested Crit dmg myself, it seems like pets have their own crit damage value. ( so +crit dmg items wont affect them)

You can have 3 Gidbinn Fetishes, if a new Gibinn Fetish is summoned, the first one dies.
I tested it again and the Gidbinn do 50% of your DPS. I have 90k DPS and each of mine Gidbinns hit for 45k (45794), with my 77% Mask and the 15% Physical Damage Bracer i can get them to 96k. With the Pierce the Veil Passive http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/class/witch-doctor/passive/pierce-the-veil they hit for 115k. Are aren't affected by any other Stat i tested.

  • Normal: 45k
  • 15% Bracer: 49k
  • Bracer + Pierce the Veil: 59k
  • Mask: 90k
  • Mask + Bracer: 96k
  • Mask + Pierce the Veil: 108k
  • Mask + Bracer + Pierce the Veil: 115k

So the Gidbinn Fetishes do 50% of you DPS and benefit 100% from the Mask and Pierce the Veil Value and 50% from the Physical Damage affix.

Gidbinn Fetishes seem to never Crit. :-( (Normal Fetishes of Fetish Army of the Passive do alot)
They also seem to have a attack speed of 1.0 (which maybe can be boosted with Tasker and Theo http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/item/tasker-and-theo i think).
They last for 15 seconds, but with high attack Speed which you should have to also Proc Fetish Sycophants http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/class/witch-doctor/passive/fetish-sycophants, they always should 2-3 there.

Btw the Maximus Demon of my Enchantress hits for 125k and can crit with +250k. Its Strange that one can Crit and not the Gidbinns.

Your own Pets (including Fetishes) seem to have your own Crit Rate and scale with your own DPS, but the Crit Damage seems is fixed at 150%, not sure about the Crit Damage.

%Area Damage doesn't work on any Pets. Would be to overpowered imo. :-p
Each of Fetish Army and Fetish Sycophants can crit for 960k with Slam Dance Voodoo and i only got 90k DPS.

so wait. the dps of pet is determined by the dps shown when i open my inventory? i always thought its actually just my wepaon dmg - so my attack speed and crit damage, which both are inculuded in this value, would not matter. So its really that easy to determin the dps of the minions?

I tested the dmg of fetishes and it seemed, that an emerald in my weapon wouldnt increase their damage, although my crit cahnce was at ~50% hence my dps display was higher.

Also i tested crit dmg and %Area Damage a bit more. their crit damage seem to be 150% and %area doesnt work, just like you said :) .

We talk about the Gidbinn or the normal Pets? they are diffrent.

All Pet Attack Speed is fixed at 1.0 and might only get buffed by Tasker and Theo.

The damage of the Gidbinns is calculated by your DPS.
Your normal Pets use your Weapon Damage, that why the Crit Damage isn't affected and they have a wider Range.

Btw. The Gidbinn Fetishes have very low Health, so they are not for tanking. A Zombie which hits me for 7k kills a Gibinn with 2 Hits. Not sure how long they last in a Arcane/Frozen Elite Group, but i never will test this because i play on Hardcore. :-)
