Skorn, a must have ?

Witch Doctor
Hello fellow witch doctors. I have a question, it might come out stupid but w/e, I have problems surviving elite packs when running firebats/Cloud of bats build. and i'm thinking, maybe it's my low Life steal. So is a Skorn really necessary for farming mp8-10 smooth ? Please check my current gear stats before commenting. Preciate the help !

And if so is it worth buying any kind of skorn or should i just be passive until i can snipe some 1.5k dps skorn ?

Ps. I'm currently playing mp8-10
Link your Profile pls
In my opinion your problem now is with All Res, u should try to get more maybe on your Trails/WH/Pants and craft some bracers.

If u don't have enough gold for a good CK/Sword and Mojo(SoS) then Skorn will be a very good choise, but after u have more EHP, if u only buy Skorn you won't survive much more.
aah okey, well i have a budget around 1 billion. So i'll try with getting more All Res. Thanks for your time and answer, I preciate it !

750ish All Res should be enough no ?
Try getting 800+
If you are having trouble surviving, you can adjust your passives to include Spirit Vessel or Jungle Fortitude. If you pick Spirit Vessel, your Spirit Walk will be shortened by 2 seconds, which is always helpful.

Also, Blood Ritual is generally considered better than Spiritual Attunement for a bat build.
I've tried both builds and for me skorn is better atleast for bat build. 1h+very good offhand is nice but good skorns are much better. Bought mine for a decent price last night, good luck in finding one good for you! (cheap as possible of course:)

Unless you prefer to play PB over CoB.
PB is nice to play when you have freeze wiz and no monk around, you don't have to move so much:). Not tested PB with Skorn but i will do this tonight when i will be home.
nazgul the problem with Skorn and PB is stacking the damage takes longer unless you have a lot of IAS gear.
Must have?
upgrade ur gem in helm, 3-4% will help, get armor on ur chest and boots, I had the same problem, and 4300 armor seemed to be my magic number to help me surive better.
