Witch Doctor Leveling Build

This Build is used specifically for leveling your Witch Doctor. It centers around having a pack of pets helping you to quickly kill enemies, while leveling and getting gear for your main Build.

Leveling Builds are a great way to expedite your character to level 70. From there, you can work on setting your Witch Doctor up with optimal armor and weapons for your preferred Build to prepare for the more challenging levels.

Note that you will not be able to use all of these Skills and Passives immediately, so experiment and work with other Skills in the meantime. Leveling builds are very flexible, so don’t shy away from trying out different abilities to help you decide on a final Build. (Tip: Remember to enable “Elective Mode” in Settings -> Gameplay to be able to mix-and-match the skills much more easily across the categories.)
