Introduction

Reworked into a top tier Witch Doctor set in Patch 2.3, Helltooth puts a strong emphasis on spellcasting playstyles — and along with a few helpful legendaries, brings back the vanilla darling Zombie Bears build. This bursty, AoE playstyle is available in both Greater Rift solo progression (the present guide) and speed farming (see link just below) variations.
