START OFF THE SEASON WITH A FULL SET! As seen in the picture below, each class gets a certain Set via Haedrig’s Gift! Simply complete the tasks outline in this article and get that running start to the season! Hot To Get Em All! Reach Level 70: You will get your first two set pieces! Kill Zolton Kulle: You must kill Zolton Kulle on T2 or higher. The 2 set pieces you got after hitting 70, along with a few crafted items, should make killing him a little easier (this can also be done in a full party). Killing Zolton Kulle will give you the next two pieces of your 6 piece set! Now you will have 4 pieces when you move onto the next phase. Complete Great Rift 20 (between T4-T5 difficulty) or Higher Solo. The 4 piece set with a few crafted items will also make this a lot easier!
W I T C H D O C T O R IMPORTANT FACTS ABOUT SET DUNGEONS! The 6 Piece Bonus Must Be Active: While you must wear the entire set for the Pilar to spawn, you can equip a Ring of Royal Grandeur to reduce the set items required for a full set by 1. As long as you have that on your character, or in Kanai’s Cube, your 5 piece set will be allowed into the Dungeon. Hardcore Players CANNOT DIE in Set Dungeons: Instead of dying your life will reach 1hp and prevent death will be activated. Monsters will still have the attack animation, however, their attacks will do no damage to you. A GREEN PORTAL will appear beside you, after the death procs, and it will take you back to the outside of the set dungeon entrance. DO NOT TAKE THE GREEN PORTAL! ANY monster sitting outside the entrance

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW TO BE A PRO! IMPORTANT DOs & DON’Ts Regardless of The Method Used To Level ALWAYS: Take your followers weapons for more damage starting off! Even if you are solo, you can still use your follower without them having a weapon. Check for cursed events. Stick to Act 1 Cursed Chest events, as the monsters in Act 1 are the easiest to kill, resulting in maximum efficiency. Cursed chests can be found in The Fields of Misery, The Old Ruins, Cathedral Level 1, Caverns of Araneae, and Halls of Agony 3. Keep an eye out for Helms with SOCKETS! Place a Ruby (Red) Gem into it (Red Gems = XP Boost). If you are in a party SHARE the extra socket-ed helms with your group. PICK UP EVERYTHING!

Welcome to the Horadrim Corner! Come gather by the fire and talk about the builds you all want to see! Let the ancient knowledge of the Horadrim assist your quest for greatness as you slaughter the demons that stand in your way. For all that is good, build yourself into a warrior worthy of Pandemonium! Hello and here we are again with another edition of the Horadrim Corner. This week we will be featuring a build submitted by our good friend Mikey, with his version of the Dagger of Darts Witch Doctor. With the recent update to the Zunimassa’s pet set, this build became one of the most powerful of the many Witch Doctor options and continues to dazzle with the sheer sight of the hail of darts. With all the attacks, you could theoretically blot out the sun, but instead we shall use it for the simple task of slaughtering
In the ninth round of the Transmog Tuesday series, Poweraxes showcases his Coral Snake Witch Doctor. "Red touches yellow, kills a fellow!"
A new age has arrived in the world of character building within Diablo 3. Gone are the days of every build aiming to maximize their own DPS in hopes to out-damage each fellow party member for bragging rights over an invisible damage chart. What if a Greater Rift group was no longer comprised of four individual players who solely focused on their own playstyle? What might a team look like, instead, if each player began concentrating on one specific job that the team needs as a whole rather than attempting a multitude of functions on their own? When the community starts to ask these questions, we begin to see an evolution of how teamwork looks in Diablo 3. As a result, there is new motivation amongst community members to develop unconventional and highly specialized builds that can serve these specific roles. While certain specialized roles, such as the Support Monk,
One of the most epic parts of being a nephalem in Sanctuary is that there are so many of us! On a daily basis, players are wracking their brains, stashes, and forums for new ideas on how to build a better demon slaying machine. The Hellforge is an iconic location steeped in lore and visited briefly in Diablo II – it is a place for getting dangerous deeds done. We wanted to bottle that same ethos and create a compendium of possible builds for players new and old to research, test, and iterate upon. We will scour the community’s offerings to bring you some of the more intriguing entries in celebration of innovation and inspiration for new creations.
