How to Use the Helltooth Harness Set

The Helltooth Harness is one of the more open-ended sets at the Witch Doctor's disposal; while it lists a set of skills it amplifies with its bonuses, that list is fairly long, and includes all primary skills, half of your Secondary skill category (Grasp of the Dead Grasp of the Dead, Firebats Firebats), most of the Decay category (Zombie Charger Zombie Charger, Acid Cloud Acid Cloud, Wall of Death Wall of Death, Piranhas Piranhas) and even Gargantuan Gargantuan.

  • 2-piece bonus
    • Enemies hit by your primary skills, Acid Cloud, Firebats, Zombie Charger, Zombie Dogs, Gargantuan, Grasp of the Dead, Piranhas, or Wall of Death are afflicted by Necrosis, becoming Slowed and taking 3000% weapon damage every second for 10 seconds.
  • 4-piece bonus
    • After applying Necrosis to an enemy, you take 60% reduced damage for 10 seconds.
  • 6-piece bonus
    • After casting Wall of Death, gain 9000% increased damage for 15 seconds to your primary skills, Acid Cloud, Firebats, Zombie Charger, Zombie Dogs, Gargantuan, Grasp of the Dead, Piranhas, and Wall of Death.

The 2-piece set bonus applies the Necrosis debuff on enemies hit by the aforementioned skills, afflicting them with a Slow and dealing damage over time. Aside from the utility of an easy proc for Bane of the Trapped Bane of the Trapped, this is a nice early character progression damage bonus, with added safety on top.

The 4-piece set bonus continues the Necrosis debuff theme, bolstering you with unconditional damage reduction as long as you spread your damaging skills on a regular basis.

The 6-piece set bonus ties the set to the use of Wall of Death Wall of Death for its biggest damage bonus to the skills listed above. A common rune choice for builds that utilize Wall of Death Wall of Death simply for the buff is Communing with Spirits Communing with Spirits, due to the additional enemy slow and damage reduction it provides.
