  • 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.
