Zero Dog zdps Legacy WD needs Dev attention(1)Category: Witch DoctorJanuary-17-2015 9:27 AM PST (5 years ago) Go to Blizzard forum post
So now the best way to do Grifts is for Demon Hunters to get as much hatred as possible and thats through the Reapers Wraps + Blood Vengeance combo with health globes. There are a few ways in the game to spawn health globes but one of the best if not the best way to do that is with legacy items for "Zero Dog" Witch Doctor items with the Zombie Dog - Final Gift rune and using Sacrifice. When you spawn more Zombie Dogs with this rune they can spawn health globes. Legacy items like Homunculus http://us.battle.net/d3/en/item/homunculus-2RYEIW and other items that can lower the cooldown by Zombie Dogs by up to 9? seconds is just HUGE. Before the 2.1.2 patch, these items where not a problem. Now these items/tactics are a problem with the current "meta", they are not obtainable anymore. So you are SOL if you dont have them. I dont believe that BIS or best strategies should involve legacy items.

The following items can have the" Reduces Cooldown of Summon Zombie Dogs" affix:
Voodoo Masks - Visage of Giyua up to 9 Seconds
Mojo- Homunculus - Up to 20 second
Stone of Jordan, Mara's Kaleidoscope, and Skull Grasp


Obviously you wouldnt take the Voodoo Mask but all other items to get that "Zero Dog" cooldown are going to get out of control.

This is the type of scenario where if this is indeed a best strategy then if your group does not have one, then you are automatically out of the top of the leaderboards. (Unless you play Seasons)

While I realize the discussion in this thread has become more playful (and thus is relatively harmless), the title itself is misleading. At this time, we are not actioning (or planning to action) players who are using legacy items to support or run a zero dog build.

For those experiencing connection issues, it’s possible that you were having a separate technical issue. If that’s the case, please be sure post over in our Technical Support or Mac Technical Support forums. You can also reach our support staff through the Customer Service portal: https://us.battle.net/support/en/help/

Gonna go ahead and lock this, folks. Thanks for your cooperation!
