Rhen'Ho Flayer - 2nd best WD weapon(1)Category: Witch DoctorMay-6-2014 6:29 AM PDT (8 years ago) Go to Blizzard forum post

For the 99% of us that can't find a SMK I feel the best alternative you can have is the Rhen'Ho Flayer with Addling Toads. I finally got my full Zuni set and wanted to make a new video showing how easy it is to cruise through T5 using the Flayer.

My dps isn't that great for this as I lose a couple hundred thousand DPS to wear this gear due to crappy rolls (738K profile dps currently) I hope to find a better flayer as i have seen others with 300 more dps on theirs.

The Crowd Control capability of the frogs and Piranhado combined is priceless. Even playing solo you so I am taking almost no damage from attacks as everything is occupied with confusion, or dealing with my pets. When i try firebats I am under attack so much I have to move and dodge and try to recast FB and i end up running OOM trying to re-position and cast. With frogs you can constantly be moving and casting to continuously be streaming frogs and producing sycopants.

My AS is also very low now i think 1.8 for this. Everyone is obsessed with firebats and getting out as many fetishes as possible but i think this works just fine. I know once i counted and i had 21 fetishes out at one time. That is more than enough to get in each others way and create too much congestion as it is. I normally do not play solo, I typically just do T5/6 rifts with 4 players. Everyone in my party takes so much less damage with this build it is an invaluable asset.

I hope to get some replacement gear and get my AS back up to 2.0 where i had it.

This setup is so underrated and I am just suggesting that everyone who finds a Flayer should give it a shot and you will be pleasantly surprised!

Nice Rhen'ho Flayer review and video! This is one of the weapons I've really been looking forward to trying out for myself, but I've been giving my Witch Doctor a rest while I level up the rest of my characters.
