Best Witch Doctor Legendary and Set Items

The most popular Witch Doctor armor and weapons at level 70 in Reaper of Souls
  • This guide has the most popular armor and weapons 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 3 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 the Diablo III: Reaper of Souls expansion.
  • This gear guide shows the equipment worn by the level 70 Witch Doctors who are actively playing in patch 2.0, in Reaper of Souls. 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 kills.
    2. The softcore Witch Doctors who are in the top 25% of elite kills.
    3. Hardcore Witch Doctors, regardless of elite 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. These are the top Witch Doctor items, used for end-game level 70 content like running Nephalem Rifts and Bounties in Adventure Mode, or farming Paragon Levels.
  • This best in slot Witch Doctor gear guide has all the top gear just for Witch Doctors. These include three editions of Legendary and Set items: the current items that drop right now in Diablo III; the (Legacy) Legendary items that dropped before patch 2.0; the (Old Legacy) Legendary items that were available long ago, before patch 1.0.4. See the Best Legendary and Set Items overview for more information about the Legendary editions, and for charts of the top items among all the classes combined.

  • 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.
