WD Pets, Frostburn and Rimeheart

5 posts in this topic

Hello everyone :)

I have several questions that I'm hoping to get answered by someone :

1. Frostburn

passive (proc part): Can WD pets trigger it?

2. RimeheartRimeheart passive: can WD pets proc it? 

There could be some interesting variations with HT set :)

Frostburn will not work with pets since it is saying: "Cold skills", hence it is not your cold damage that matters and the proc works off the cold skills being used.

In general "on hit" doesn't apply to pets since it would be absurdly OP if that proc would count from 23 fetishes hammering away during a BBV :)

Hey, a man can dream... I mean, I know it's not comparable, but if wizards can get their 120% speed dual hydra chainguns that proc for 14k% dmg, why shouldn't we get our army of slicers hacking away through everything?

I recall there being a an "on hit" related to pets at one point but I'm honestly not sure it's still there and it was basically that the first hit a pet did was counted towards it and it made it useful to keep respawning the legion of fetishes but like I said, I have no idea if that still exist :) We have to ping @Deadset or @Blainie for a better reply I think!

Bit late here, but:

As far as I am aware, no, they do not proc it. The Hydra isn't actually classed as a pet, but is instead treated as a "spell" in itself. By resummoning your pet as Ark suggests, you are essentially casting a "spell" to trigger it. The first hit from a pet is treated as the actual spell damage of summoning your pet.

      Being a big fan of the Jade Harvester build of Witch Doctors I'm still conflicted in my choice sometimes because I'm a hardcore player and the issue I seem to run into going past GR70 is surviving certain bosses.
      If there is any question here it would be: How, if even at all, do you deal with charge bosses like the Pitlord/Ravager on hardcore as Jade Harvester?
      My last Jade died around GR70 to this because I was determined that I should kill it but after waiting out some cooldowns I didn't even get to move when walking back in because the charge is instant and oneshots you because of the lack of Soul Harvest stacks and Horrify.
      I love the build but dealing with bosses with it is by far one of the most tricky things I've done in Diablo 3... All other builds I've tried up there in 70+ all have their ways of killing just about any boss but Jade sometimes feel like I have to end the GR if the wrong boss spawns making it a slightly more annoying "fishing" than seeinga  monster and nope out of it right away.

      Seems the page for a Witch Doctor is broken since it only loads half of it basically.

      I've tried Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explorer. They all stop at the "Hands" section for stat-priority list.
