Community forums work best when participants treat their fellow posters with respect and courtesy. Therefore, we ask that you take the time to read through the forum Code of Conduct before posting. Search The new search function at the top of the Diablo III community site is extremely robust. Please be sure to use it to look for similar topics, blog posts, or web pages that may contain the answer before creating your forum topic. Making a new thread on an existing subject will likely result in your thread being deleted. If you continue to repost it you're likely to have your posting privileges suspended for spamming. Worst of all, you'll be making the other forum goers upset that you didn't take a minute to search before posting. Rating The new rating system can be used to promote positive discussion, and demote unhelpful posts, or even report posts that violate the forum code of conduct. By hovering over a post you'll be presented with a thumbs up, and a thumbs down icon. Clicking the 'thumbs down' icon you can choose from a few options. Dislike will rate the comment down. If enough people dislike a post it will be darkened, or with a lot of dislikes it will be hidden. You can also quickly report a post as trolling or spam, or use the report function to fill out a more comprehensive description of the violation. You can only rate each post once.

This is considered spamming. Posting IBTL (in before the lock) is not helpful and if you feel a thread should be moderated please use the rating button to do so. Posting TLDR or L2P constitutes as trolling Posting TLDR (Too Long, Didn’t Read) is saying you don’t care about a player’s post. Posting L2P (Learn to Play) mocks the player for their skill or experience level rather than provide constructive input on the post itself. Both are considered trolling and will lead to a suspension.Zhydaris1 23 Aug 2011
13 Nov 2018 A word on Spirit Barrage (Phantasms) Hey all, There’s a lot of great discussion and a ton of build sharing going on around Legacy of Nightmares builds for the Witch Doctor that focus on the interaction between Spirit Barrage (Phantasms) and several pet-oriented Legendary powers. It’s wonderful to see such constructive conversation and information sharing as various community members explore the strengths and intricacies of this emergent gameplay. There has also been some concern that this interaction will be nerfed. We wanted to share our thoughts on this today and reassure the Witch Doctor community that, at this time, we have no intentions to make changes to Spirit Barrage (Phantasms) or its currently existing interactions with items such as Mask of Jeram, Ring of Emptiness or The Barber. While this is somewhat inconsistent philosophically from the changes that we’ve made in the past regarding this skill and rune combination, we looked at the situation objectively and asked ourselves a couple questions: Is it fun? Is it balanced? Ultimately, we’ve decided that the answer to both of these questions is yes, and there is much higher risk in adjusting the balance of this skill or the other items than there is to let the community continue to enjoy this fun and unique build. We will continue monitoring its performance, of course, and we’re prepared to make any changes if something extreme arises. In the meantime, please continue to theorycraft and Spirit Barrage to your heart’s content! -The Diablo Dev TeamVaneras2 13 Nov 2018

05 Jul New WD build suggestion (tips needed) Hey everyone Been testing out a (maybe) new 6pc Zuni 4Pc Garg build this season. so far I've got: https://www.d3planner.com/707138010 Leg Gems Bane of Trapped (stable) Enforcer (stable) Gem Of Efficacious Toxin / Bane of Stricken / Pain Enhancer (need some help here) Haven't entered stats on items as I'm not done optimizing yet. I know this build will probably never be Meta but I'm having fun with it right now, and my main questions are: Should I drop Sacred Harvester / Lakumba with spirit walk / Soul Harvest in favor of Starmetal Kukri and Strongarm with Hex - Jinx and Big Bad Voodoo - Slam Dance? and in doing so should I drop Mask of Jeram in Cube for TnT for more cooldown on BBW? It should be a fairly big damage increase, but less survivability and what about passives? Lastly, which leg gem should I go for in 3rd slot? Thanks in advanceMaracas0 05 Jul
28 Jun Suggestion for Melting Build WD My Build https://eu.diablo3.com/en/profile/Wounbass-2411/hero/119536393 i got a Question to someone that can give me a answer i suggest that the build should go to T13 and it can but not as intended and mostly because when monsters get out of the screen the lose the loaded dmg rendering on them and i hate when that happens because this is realy a fast running build like the DH have but no one is using it because its a T8 max Running is there a way to help my build out either by a new item ingame (Devs :D ) or someone that can have a look at the build and try it out.. im calling it smelting build just by running psat the mobs the wormwood applyed Lotus swarm and melt em down but because im running as fast as i can with Chicken they get fast out of range so the dmg dosent !@#$inue so why do we need the passive that makes sure that lotus swarm and haunt stay on for "Ever" Thanks in regards and sry for the bad spelling im from denmark :DWounbass1 28 Jun
26 Jun few witchdoctor questions Hey. can anyone tell me which kind of weapon is the best for pets,channeled skills and DoT skills?

24 Jun Poison Darth WD The Dagger of Darts Your Poison Darts and your Fetishes’ Poison Darts now pierce and deal an additional [400-500%] damage. How does the new Dagger interacts with the Carnevil ? According to https://diablo.fandom.com/wiki/Carnevil the darts shot by the fetishes has +250% increased damage compared to normal skill. The new Dagger going to increase the damage of the darts shot by the fetishes even more or it only applies to your darts ? If I have Depth Diggers and Spined Dart, do the darts shot by the fetishes deal increased damage ? Im asking because the darts shot by the fetishes dont get changed based on the rune you pick for Poison Dart. While we are at the topic I think The Dagger of Darts or the Carnevil should either make you gain the Spined Dart rune, so you have more than 1 possibility for picking runes, or just simply add "Poison Darth gives 5 Mana per Hit", just so Depth Diggers triggers.xEcronomus1 24 Jun
11 Jun WD needs a rework on Soul Harvest Making it absolutely essential in every wd build results in itemization revolving around improving soul harvest, which means every single build for wd must use sacred harvester and lakumba's ornaments, either cubed or worn. Please, consider reworking soul harvest, so we can get more gearing options. Every item buffing soul harvest becomes meta as soon as you add it to the game.PieknyTomek1 11 Jun

23 May I can't see the level 75 on GR menu Hello. I build helltooth witch doctor and recently i achived level 70 on greater rift, completed without problem but when i try to reach 75 there is no option on obelisk menu. I see only 71-72-73 so what am i missing here? Is this about lacking some gems, weapons or paragon level? Much appreciated for any help. Thank you.

27 Apr Problem with defense on Soul Harvest build Hi, I've got very big problem with survivability on this build. It's so bad that even mobs in vault can oneshot me. Please check my gear and tell me what should I do. I know it's not the best but on other classes I could solo 80-90 gr here It's very big problem. And also the hardest part of grs are bosses. I can't outheal myself vs single target and each boss at 80-85 gr can just literally oneshot me with auto attack.damian1 27 Apr
13 Mar Season set Hi guys! So i completed the Chapter IV in the Season 16 with my Witch Doctor. Now i am doing the "Slayer" But I can't complete the "set me free" mission, because I need the set what I got at the end of Chapter IV. Is there a place or method for collecting these set pieces more easily?Vandor18230 13 Mar

23 Feb Arachyr or Jade 2 piece on pet doctor? Hi there. I'm going for a pet build with the WD this season. And I got Zuni 5 piece(6-piece bonus). Doing haunt and corpse spider, rest letting the dogs, garg and fetish to work. Now, my question is if I'm benefiting more from the Arachyr permanent spider queen or from Jades haunt on haunt bonus. As i have room for one of those 2 piece bonuses. Thanks!Prcofix0 23 Feb

27 Jan Helltooth Garg with RoE? No expert on the calculations going on in D3 but I was wondering if it would be a beneficial boost to damage if you use the generic Helltooth Garg build with Ring of Emptiness and the Poisoned Spirit rune on Haunt? Or even with CoE? Or will it simply be underwhelming due to infavorable additives/multiplicatives? https://www.diablofans.com/builds/103556-helltooth-garg-w-roe-coeCrashflow0 27 Jan

21 Jan Grin Reaper + Jade Harvester 2-set = memes? Let me preface this by saying I'm in no way a really hardcore Diablo player, and my only real intent is getting chapter 4 of the season 13 progress done. I'm just here to share a story from my first experience leveling a witch doctor! My two friends and I have been leveling a party of witch doctor, barbarian, and crusader. I was really feeling a bit lacking in damage... until my friend found me a Grin Reaper than they looted. Right away I noticed the effect of being able to summon mimics that would cast spells from my spell pool. One of those being haunt. I was having a pretty good time from 58-70 with the helmet, cubing it eventually when I got to the point of replacing it with something far better stat-wise. The build I was going on was this guide here [https://youtu.be/yUU0BHkJeO8] with a zombie dog and gargantuan focus in poison damage, using haunt, acid rain, and piranhanado as the primary attacks with spirit walk as a utility. The procs from the mimics were great, because acid rain's lob blob bomb was just everywhere when fighting in packs, and when I finally got piranhanado, that was all the more of a damage boost. All I needed to do, for the most part, was spam haunt on everything I could for as many mimic procs as possible. Damage output was great, because even if haunt was constantly being removed from the targets, the raw output of other spells from my mimics was more than making up for it... but, I thought it could be better. Then, I got the gloves and shoulders for the Jade Harvester set after we completed chapter 2 of the season. Then it got bonkers. With haunt now dealing 560 seconds worth of upfront damage if it found it's way to a target that already had haunt on it, this build went from mildly lacking in single target to being an absolute nuke. Previously we'd only been doing Torment I for the season progress, and one of my friends was still very fresh to the game. We thought that turning it to Torment IV would be a bit choppy due to the scaling of mobs. (again, we aren't great at this game by any means, and we're totally casual players) Yet as we were going through the bowels of Cubical Hell on the way to kill Ghom for the first time on Torment IV, I started to notice something. Why were mobs suddenly getting ticks for 1100 million damage? Why did we kill Ghom in just under three seconds, when I was only spamming haunt? The answer is that Grin Reaper's effect coupled with the Jade Harvester set means my mimics were spamming just as much haunt as I was, and the overlap was triggering a resonance cascade for the ages. I now feel bad a little bad that I can do billions of damage on demand while everyone else in my party is still in the high thousands. I have become Death, spammer of Haunts.Deg4 21 Jan
21 Dec WD firebats problem Hi guys, I m back in Diablo by a week,after long time.I m playing my wd 900+ paragorn,i m doing rift lvl 90+.I noticed that many times during the rift i found elites that die in 10-15 seconds and other elites the i need 1-2 minuts for kill.I know that affixes can change the power of each elite.It's possible that some elites have naturale fire resistance so i don t deal damage? ThanksProsecco1 21 Dec

12 Dec 2018 Helltooth Garg Build doing low damage Hi, This build is doing like 20% of the damage of my jade harvester build. ​ 6 piece helltooth short mans finger sacred harvester + uk serpent humungoid gargantuan communing with spirits WOD leeching dog (the one big dog ring) Does the % damage from the bracers and helm stack multiplicatively or additively with the 4500% boost from the 6 piece set bonus? I understand why i am doing no damage if its multiplicative. That means 4500% becomes like 20,000% with those items. If not ,why am I doing so little damageroflcopter4 12 Dec 2018

26 Oct 2018 SB LoN - Not what I expected Hey fellow Nephalems! As I like to go on off meta routes in almost every game, I made a Spirit Barrage WD for this season. It is promoted as a high tier solo build on icy-veins, and there are several videos on YT about how efficient it is for GR cleaning. Now I've gathered all the ancient pieces except one ring, on top of it my Sacred Harvester and Hellfire Amulet(Gruesome Feast passive) are primal. I have decent dmg rolls on almost everything, also got Gazing Demise and Mask of Jeram with native SB% rolls on them, the only piece somehow suboptimal are the pants, which have fire dmg roll on it. I'm sitting on almost 2m sheet dmg and 70m thoughness, GR80 is my highest clear, and I don't think I can go any higher. Every GR is a new nightmare with several deaths, and elites are taking years to finish. Am I missing something? Is this the regular experience with the build? I would like to see your opinions about it! https://eu.diablo3.com/en/profile/Ellusion-2545/hero/112516770Ellusion4 26 Oct 2018
10 Oct 2018 WHy is JAde Harvester so freaking op? Ok so after tailoring helltooth and firebats sets they both are stomped out by jade harvester without any paragon points wtf blizz why is it so freaking op.

19 Sep 2018 Vortex immunity I've started playing on my Non-seasonal WD while waiting for S15 and noticed some... unusual powers. I seem to be immune to elite's vortex ability. Either my WD has gained weight due to idling in champ select or crowd control reduction does not work the way I thought it did. I have a total of 37.99 CCR but I never ever get pulled by elites. Even if I am as close as 10 yards from them, my pets would instantly get pulled in, but not me. I see the animation and it kind of skips me, while my minions fly in.

13 Aug 2018 Not had a single green drop this season Is this normal? My seasonal Necromancer character is fine, gets drops and am just on the cusp of breaking GR70 with him. My seasonal Witch Doctor however, well that is an entirely different story. She hasn't had a single green item drop anywhere this season, be that Bounties, Rifts, GRifts or via shards. She gets the odd legendary drop every now and then but just not any greens at all. The only two green pieces she has are the Travellers/Compass set and she only has them because they dropped on my Necro.Boothen0 13 Aug 2018

10 Jul 2018 Arachyr's set question The 6 piece set bonus: The damage of your creature skills is increased by 4500%. Is that also affecting the spiders damage that is always out? If not, I was going to sacrifice the 6 piece bonus for the 2 piece bonus from Jade Harvesters to increase haunt damage. If this is not viable then I really wish Jade Harvester had an offhand like the zunni's set.. (that's what I'm currently stuck with atm because nothing I have is better. Also, I don't know what I should replace it with if I even should.)Ragnarzk0 10 Jul 2018
04 Jul 2018 Zunimassa Set Dungeon Bugged Just a heads up for anyone attempting this dungeon. Bear in mind, this post is about completing the dungeon (one primary objective and basic objective), not Mastery. The two primary objectives are: 1) Grip 150 enemies in the primary zone of Grasp of the Dead 2) Do not allow any enemies into melee range Currently, if you complete the second primary objective only (melee range), you will fail the dungeon regardless if you kill the amount of monsters required for the basic objectives within the stipulated time. Completing the first objective only (grip enemies) and also having the minimum required kills will successfully complete the set dungeon.Insanity3 04 Jul 2018

I found this video on youtube saying gargantuan is capped at 40% attack speed: https://youtu.be/sc0Mb1TN7-U?t=434 But I can't find any more info about this anywhere else. Does this mean that the attack speed, on say, my Witching Hour has no affect on my garg dmg as long as I have Tasker and Theo equippeed? meaning a there's no difference between a 5% and 7% roll.deew2 15 May 2018
11 May 2018 Necro combo Hi. My friend is playing a Necro and Im running a WD. His DPS is INSANE compared to mine and I feel alot more squishy. I've tried firebat and Jade build but it feels that he's carrying me. My question is, whats the best combo build for me as a WD to play with the Necro? I'm mostly full ancient gear so the gear and gems are pretty decent, paragon around 900, I've put 100 points in vit for more survivability. I'm using Lakumbas and stacking soul harvest but still die quite easy and I'm not doing billions of dps. I've managed a GR93 solo with the same Firebat build, but playing duo I'm hardly killing / surviving trash.Needle2 11 May 2018

03 Apr 2018 Suggestion: new item for firebats WD I started playing firebats build and I feel that biggest downside of this build is the dps penalties when you have to move around or are attacked by enemies with knockback, in that case it doesn't matter if you move or not it still gets interrupted and damage done is reset back to 425%. I was thinking that maybe it would be a good idea to introduce an item, that: 1. Makes firebats hit for 850% right away, without the 3 seconds delay. or 2. Allows you to move when channeling. I would prefer option no. 2, but I think people would whine that it reassembles ww barbie too much. On the other hand I guess each season characters are supposed to push few grifts more than the previous season, and imho such change would get it done.PieknyTomek6 03 Apr 2018
03 Apr 2018 [Suggestion] Pet Attack Command The witch doctor used to be the best for pets. (only option but still) now necro has come along and has the one thing that WD needs. A command to make the pets actually attack what you need them to attack! I love WD, its my favourite class.. with the pet build being really fun to play.. other than the fact that pets just dont attack what you need them too... most of the time they chase the adds rather than attack the Elites that are smashing your face in. Then necro comes along (completely different that D2 necro) and gets loads of pets as well as a way to control them. Just give us WDs what we should of probably had from the very start!Ruekatu12 03 Apr 2018

03 Mar 2018 WD pets 2.0 Sup fellas, I play WD since vanilla, I felt in love with it esthetics's all those zombies, pets and dots. But since Necro came out and showed different take on pets skills with with passive summoning and active command skill. Its feels much better and now WD pets feels outdated. And if by chance devs are reading this can WD get a passive and active for pets as well (pretty please)? I know commanding dead is Necro "thing", but if WD was a "buffer" of pets, so it wont be a plain copy of Necro. And WD pet game play would be more enjoyable and not: "summon a pet.... and watch them hopefully die so you can press that button again". Game some thought how it could be bit bellow, what you think guys? Would it make WD's pets great again? ... ... ...GenSaru0 03 Mar 2018

07 Feb 2018 How do you cope with speed addiction? I used to happily run after my pets moving ahead like a bunch of bulldozers watching them work or go with DoT heavy builds making the screen a symphony of beauty with me dancing around. I was content in my abilities and used whatever was needed to make things work. Then by pure chance I stumbled across the chicken set. In fact...had it sitting in my bank for the longest time but never gave it much thought because it sounded so.....boring and more like a "fun" thing rather then a useful asset. The very first time I took out my old mojo and dagger and dusted em off I was simply mindblown. It was raw, unaltered speed without any brakes. It was exhilarating, it was a completely new experience and it was ADDICTIVE as hell. After enjoying racing around for an hour or so I put em back in the bank and went back to my old trusted build. But something was lacking. Something stuck at the back of my mind nudging me. When I watched myself clearing rifts and doing bounties I always had an afterimage on the screen showing the fun I had with the chicken set. I tried to incorperate it into my regular build but sacrificed a lot of power doing so. This forced me to adjust my build for whatever I was doing at the time. Farm runs at T13 could easily be done with the chicken set but doing "serious work" required me to slow down and do it the old fashioned way. I just find myself groaning in desperation whenever I need to push GRifts or go against odds that require me to abandon my beloved chicken set and I am thrilled when I think about farming regular rifts and bounties. It used to be the other way around. I find myself wanting to push that button which used to catapult me on an uncontrolled trajectory at terminal velocity and whenever I realize I dont have it on my action bar my soul weeps. I CRAVE that speed so much it hurts. I am not alone I know that. I introduced my wife to the "chicken experience" and only learned afterwards that she spent 3 hours ON HER OWN to farm them to be able to speed along as well. She never plays D3 alone !!!!! /dumbstruckfacefeelingbetrayed So to all my fellow chicken users....how do YOU cope with the loss? What do you do in order to get accustomed to the snail speed afterwards? How do I become content again? Halp :)MTBFritz1 07 Feb 2018
06 Feb 2018 Sheet DPS Hello everyone. I came back to Diablo after almost 5yrs break. Picked WD and really enjoy zunimassa pet build. I've just got one concern - how WDs from the top of the leaderboards and with similar builds can have 3million+ sheet dps, while the max I can make is around 1.3million. The gear we have seems to be similar (of course, augmenting and better rolls make a difference), but how can the difference be so great (more than twice as much sheet dps)? What is more, when I compare the "gear bonuses" part on the battle.net profiles, I seem to have almost a similar level of these gear bonuses, intelligence a bit lower, but when I compare sheet dps the difference is outrageous. Can someone please tell me why? I manage to make GR90 solo, I'm wondering how much sheet dps is needed to push to let's say GR100 and how can i improve to enhance my stats. Kind regards, ArcturusArcturus2 06 Feb 2018

13 Jan 2018 Focus Fire for pets. The amount of time there has been an elite or an exorcist (Bane of my god damn existence) that need to be killed ASAP and my pets are dancing around killing utterly useless non threatening creatures is too damn high lol. Can we please have a keybind or a tie in skill that lets us target a specific mob and all our pets will make a beeline for said creature and terminate it. Would make me a very happy master! \o/ Thank you.Zerethyn5 13 Jan 2018
