How to Play the Build: Skills and Rotation

The Mundunugu set keeps its damage bonuses until you complete the 6-piece, but thankfully due to the relatively easy, low level gamble of Gazing Demise Gazing Demise, you can get started on a semi-respectable Spirit Barrage Spirit Barrage build very early on. You will be taking the rune Manitou Manitou on your bar for its supreme damage potential, and hopefully gain the additional firepower of Phantasm Phantasm from a cubed Gazing Demise Gazing Demise.

Speed is a crucial part of any farming setup, and you will split duties on that front between two cooldowns. Spirit Walk Spirit Walk Severance Severance will be your basic mobility cooldown, zipping you from one monster pack to the next — with the added utility of the Mundunugu 4-piece damage reduction for 30 seconds after you use the skill. Supplement your mobility with Horrify Horrify Stalker Stalker, which combines a hard crowd control utility spell with a temporary movement speed buff.

Horrify Horrify is only part of your crowd control capabilities, as you will take — and hopefully get used to — the Piranhas Piranhas Piranhado Piranhado pulling effect. The Spirit Barrage Spirit Barrage damage is greatly improved in AoE circumstances, so this will become an indispensable part of your rotation.

Lastly, you will need to take care of your defenses; again, you will have skills splitting duties on that front, with the staple Soul Harvest Soul Harvest Languish Languish taking the lead with a massive Armor bonus. Learn to Soul Harvest Soul Harvest regularly and do not let its buff fall off — this is a vital part of almost any Witch Doctor playstyle. Lastly, Big Bad Voodoo Big Bad Voodoo Ghost Trance Ghost Trance has massive synergy with the Mundunugu set, considering the 2-piece duration doubling — and will become a mainstay in your Spirit Barrage Spirit Barrage build.

Your passives will be nicely spread in purpose, with some bolstering your damage (Confidence Ritual Confidence Ritual), others your resource and cooldown management (Rush of Essence Rush of Essence and Grave Injustice Grave Injustice), and finally — a defensive passive in the form of Spirit Vessel Spirit Vessel.
