How to Use the Raiment of the Jade Harvester Set

The Raiment of the Jade Harvester is one of the more interesting and signature Witch Doctor playstyles, which focuses on applying heavy damage over time effects on the enemies from afar, and then diving in to consume the DoTs duration, essentially turning them into nukes. Jade Harvester is one of the more fixed Witch Doctor playstyles, forcing you into a rigid selection (and rotation) of Haunt Haunt, Locust Swarm Locust Swarm and Soul Harvest Soul Harvest, as well as locking you into items and passives like Quetzalcoatl Quetzalcoatl, Sacred Harvester Sacred Harvester, Lakumba's Ornament Lakumba's Ornament and Creeping Death Creeping Death.

  • 2-piece bonus
    • When Haunt lands on an enemy already affected by Haunt, it instantly deals 3500 seconds worth of Haunt damage.
  • 4-piece bonus
    • Soul Harvest gains the effect of every rune and has its cooldown reduced by 1 second every time you cast Haunt or Locust Swarm.
  • 6-piece bonus
    • Soul Harvest reduces damage taken by 50% for 12 seconds and consumes your damage over time effects on enemies, instantly dealing 10,000 seconds worth of remaining damage.

The 2-piece set bonus of Jade Harvester provides some nice early damage, applying the partial length of a Creeping Death Creeping Death-ed Haunt Haunt if you Haunt Haunt a target again.

The 4-piece set bonus grants you all the runes of Soul Harvest Soul Harvest, netting you the Swallow Your Soul Swallow Your Soul Mana increase, the Siphon Siphon life restoration, the Soul to Waste Soul to Waste speed increase and, most importantly, the Languish Languish armor increase, which is the foundation of your toughness in GRs. Note the synergy with Sacred Harvester Sacred Harvester, which extends the benefits of all these runes.

The 6-piece set bonus turns Soul Harvest Soul Harvest into a nuke by making it consume most of the duration of your Creeping Death Creeping Death-ed DoTs, and resulting in the dive-in-and-out of combat playstyle of the build. The set bonus also adds the mandatory damage reduction bonus associated with 6-piece sets, also tying it to Soul Harvest Soul Harvest application.
