Best Witch Doctor Legendary and Set Items

The most popular Witch Doctor armor, weapons, and Legendary gems at level 70
  • This guide has the most popular armor, weapons, and Legendary gems used by Witch Doctors in Diablo III, with the best in slot Witch Doctor items ranked by popularity.
  • The charts are generated from the data of more than 5 million Diablo III characters. They list the most powerful Witch Doctor Legendary and Set items used by level 70 Witch Doctors who are playing in Diablo III: Reaper of Souls.
  • This gear guide shows the equipment worn by the level 70 Witch Doctors who are actively playing in Reaper of Souls during Patch 2.1.2. For each weapon and armor slot, there are charts of three groups of Witch Doctors:
    1. The softcore Witch Doctors who are in the bottom 75% of elite monster kills.
    2. The softcore Witch Doctors who are in the top 25% of elite monster kills.
    3. Hardcore Witch Doctors, regardless of elite monster kills.
  • Each chart shows the best Witch Doctor items for a specific item slot. The most used Witch Doctor Legendary and Set items are listed in order of their popularity, and the percentage of Rare items used is at the bottom of the list. This guide shows the most useful gear for level 70 Diablo III PC Witch Doctors, and those in the console Ultimate Evil Edition on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, or Xbox 360. These are the top Witch Doctor items, used for end-game level 70 content like running Nephalem Rifts and Greater Rifts in Adventure Mode, or farming Paragon Levels.
  • This best in slot Witch Doctor gear guide has all the top gear just for Witch Doctors, most of which is dropping now. Any items marked as (Legacy) are older and no longer drop. Some Witch Doctors use those items as they hunt for new gear, to upgrade from the old equipment of patch 2.0. See the Best Legendary and Set Items overview for more information about the Legendary editions, and for charts of the top items across all the classes combined.
  • The Most Popular Witch Doctor Builds and Skills charts reflect the Witch Doctor skills and builds that are used with this elite gear.

  • This chart lists the most popular Legendary and Set items for all level 70 hardcore Witch Doctors in Diablo III.
  • Since they must be more cautious when farming for gear, hardcore Witch Doctors do not gain the same number of Legendary or Set items on average as a softcore Witch Doctor. Because of this, there are fewer items widely used across level 70 hardcore Witch Doctors, compared to the Legendary and Set items popular with the softcore Witch Doctors.
