Minor note, build says Belt of the Trove in the Cube, but the guide later amends that as the belt of transcendence.  Just fyi

 

Neat build :)

Why are you choosing Swampland Waders when we're not using sacrifice?

For the damage bonus, (refer to the gear section).

Swamp Land WadersSwamp Land Waders are a well-known addition to LoN Witch Doctors, who completely disregard the SacrificeSacrifice properties of the item for the universally useful elemental damage roll.

Because of the +% elemental damage... This is a LoN build.

The skill reference should have the Cloud of Insects rune instead of Pestilence for Locust Swarm

Nice guide.

Just one curious question.

Why Phlebotomize rune for Spirit Barrage in the group build?

We already have it from Voo's Juicer legendary property.

Is that just no other available rune is relevant (for example Manitou).

Correct! The remaining runes either change the element or the mechanics of the skill, so it works out the best to simply double up on a rune you already have.

Wouldn't the Phantasms still deal cold damage even if the Well of Souls rune is used? The extra spirits would add more life and mana per hit.

many use andariel's visage instead of mask of jeram - presumably for additional 20% cold damage.

What passive 5 passive skills should be activated (including the 5th one supplied by the Hellfire Amulet)? Can you have Rush of Essence as one of your selected passive skills and as the passive skill on your Hellfire Amulet?

Passives never stack so whatever is on your Hellfire AmuletHellfire Amulet should not be part of your 4 active passives.

Thanks for the information! I was confused because it mentions using Rush of Essence for the slot that the Hellfire Amulet frees up, but Rush of Essence was already listed as one of the four selected passive skills. I guess I am wondering what is the best passive skill for this build (outside of the four listed)?

The most common and recommended passive outside the four listed ones is Spirit VesselSpirit Vessel so you can avoid any downtime if misclicks or any other unfortunate events occur!

The rune Grasp of the DeadGrasp of the DeadDeath Is LifeDeath Is Life spawns dogs to sacrifice.

You should swap the Barber and Voo's Juicer around, you are missing out the bonus Spirit Barrage damage provided on it by not equipping it.

Do you mean in the Speed farming variation? If so, the build already provides sufficient damage, so lowering Spirit WalkSpirit Walk cooldown to take advantage of the SeveranceSeverance rune's bonus mobility through Nemesis BracersNemesis Bracers + In-geomIn-geom is preferred, and since you want The BarberThe Barber for stronger AoE, there isn't really space for Voo's JuicerVoo's Juicer.
