So you’re makin’ an alt and you don’t have the free set for your fresh 70 Witch Doctor? It’s okay – we got you covered!
Right now, I’ll just be putting the basic setup for a fresh 70 WD and a short write-up.
|WD Fresh 70 : Basic|
|Haunt||Resentful Spirits (Any)|
|Locust Swarm (Open)||Diseased Swarm (Any)|
|Soul Harvest||Soul to Waste (Any)|
|Summon Zombie Dogs||Leeching Beasts (Any)|
|Fetish Sycophants||Fierce Loyalty|
|Pierce the Veil||Midnight Feast|
There’s not much to say here – this build abuses PETS + DoT’s to do passive damage, and brainlessly clear any kind of fresh 70 content!
Zombie Dogs + Gargantuan do the brunt of your legwork for you, steamrolling anything you come across. Fetish Sycophants is also in the mix – naturally try go get an Enforcer asap to boost your damage to even greater heights.
Haunt and Locust Swarm are “filler” spells that can be anything actually. They’re just here to get faster AoE clears. I chose Resentful Spirits due to laziness, but Poisoned Spirit is probably the “strongest” selection.
Of all the six characters, a Fresh 70 Witch Doctor is, without doubt, the most powerful. It’s not only the best fresh 70 build, but the one most easily manipulated…
The build can afford to make speedy selections since it’s so powerful. Simple rune, skill and passive changes can boost your toughness or survivability by a huge amount. The default skillset above is a balance of power and speed – but here’s what you would change first if you’re try hard:
There are other tiny improvements, but I hope you get the picture.
As you can see you have a lot of rune choices, skill choices, too, as Locust Swarm (and Haunt somewhat) are optional. What does this mean? You have a lot of space to jump in power, when you get a game-changing legendary. I won’t list down all the possibilities, as they’re endless – but I hope you have enough wisdom to adjust your build to give you the most powerful setup at any given time.
