Introduction

One of the most versatile sets in the Witch Doctor arsenal, the Helltooth enables numerous spellcasting builds in the endgame — 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 above) variations.
