Most Popular Witch Doctor Builds

The top Diablo III Witch Doctor builds and skills at level 70 in Reaper of Souls

  • These are the most popular Diablo III Witch Doctor builds and skills used by level 70 Witch Doctors in Diablo III PC Patch 2.3, in the Diablo III: Reaper of Souls expansion. They are calculated from data gathered on more than 6 million Diablo III characters.
  • The skills and runes in these charts are based on the choices of level 70 Witch Doctors using the best Witch Doctor builds for end-game content. That includes farming Ancient Legendary items, running Nephalem Rifts and Greater Rifts in Adventure Mode, or quickly gaining Paragon Levels.
  • Each set of data contains charts of three groups of Witch Doctors:
    • The softcore Witch Doctors who are in the bottom 75% of elite monster kills.
    • The softcore Witch Doctors who are in the top 25% of elite monster kills.
    • All hardcore Witch Doctors regardless of elite monster kills.
  • This data is from level 70 Witch Doctors playing the Reaper of Souls expansion on PC or Mac, and also matches the current patch for the Diablo III Ultimate Evil Edition on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The best builds for the Ultimate Evil Edition on the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 are found in the Patch 2.0 Data Archive. Players of the original console Diablo III game on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 that caps out at level 60, or PC players who do not have the expansion, should instead look in the older Patch 1.0.8 Data Archive.
