Tried a new build with my WD:
Poison Dart w/ Splinters
Grasp of the Dead w/ Unbreakable Grasp
Hex w/ Hedge Doctor
Spirit Walk w/ Healing Journey
Soul Harvest w/ Soul to Waste
Spirit Barrage w/ Phantasm
So. I think it could work well with a bit better gear. I did kill 4 elite packs. When it did well, it did very well. But mostly it banked on Grasp of the Dead hitting packs so they couldn’t get to me.
I didn’t have an answer to any packs with mortar.
My biggest problem, though, is that this isn’t FUN. I’ve been a huge fan of the witch doctor for like 3 years now. I always knew that zombie bears would be great, and the pets are neat and the class would be fun to play. But it seems that in order to progress into inferno, you have to commit to a long range, kite style of play.
If I wanted to do that, I’d play a demon hunter.
So I played my wizard a bit more last night. It was good fun. Frost Nova + Explosive Blast = win. He might be my next 60.
