Introduction

Reworked and buffed several times over the course of its existence, the Helltooth set has graduated into a Witch Doctor staple. While its bonuses allow for numerous sub-variants, this guide will focus on the Acid Cloud Acid Cloud / Fire Wall Fire Wall build. This control heavy, DoT-based playstyle is available in both Greater Rift solo progression (the present guide) and speed farming (see link just below) variations.
