Introduction

Emerging from a convergence of obscure mechanics and interactions, the LoD Spirit Barrage Witch Doctor offers a unique, spellcasting-heavy, bursty playstyle. The build is available in a Greater Rift solo progression (the present build) and Speed Farming variations (see link below).

2.2.1.

Angelic Crucible Sanctification

Season 27 comes with the theme of Angelic Crucibles — consumable items that empower Legendary items with perfected Ancient-level stats, as well as infuse them with one of three unique, powerful, class-specific abilities at random. For this build, we recommend substituting the rune on Piranhas Piranhas from Piranhado Piranhado to Bogadile Bogadile, and aiming for the Haunt Haunt Sanctification, which adds the following power to your build:

  • Haunt Sanctification: Enemies affected by Locust Swarm are also Haunted. When you cast Piranhas, all Haunted enemies within 60 yards are pulled into the pool. A lesser enemy stunned by Bogadile is instantly killed. Elites and Bosses stunned by Bogadile take massive damage.

Use Angelic Crucibles on an item that crosses over most (if not all) variants of a build, and is also an item that is relatively harder to perfect than other slots (since sanctifying an item maximizes its stats). In the case of this build, good candidates for Sanctification are your equipped weapon (either The Barber The Barber or Voo's Juicer Voo's Juicer), or the Gazing Demise Gazing Demise.

You can read more on Angelic Crucibles and the sanctification process in our dedicated Angelic Crucible Mechanics guide.
