Introduction

Embodying the iconic image of the Witch Doctor — surrounded by an undead army and draining the life away from his enemies — the Helltooth Gargantuan build brings this playstyle to its rightful place: endgame. This control-heavy, pet-centric build is available in both Greater Rift solo progression (the present build) and speed farming (see link above) variations.
