The Witchdoctor character in Diablo III can be efficient farmers but you have to play them a little differently from say a Barbarian.Â Learn how to turn a Witchdoctor into a farming machine.
Playing as a Witchdoctor in Diablo 3 give you a couple of options for efficient farming.
Witch Doctors Pets
Hide behind a cluster of pets flinging damaging spells on top of your enemies
This lets you fight longer,
Witch Doctors Crush Everything in Sight
This option is quick and kills everything in one quick swoop.
But you have to then wait for your mana to build back up.
Since Witchdoctors donâ€™t have many abilities to regain their mana after it is lost, a pet heavy build is much more effective for long term farming. While you wonâ€™t have as great of an ability to generate high burst damage, you shouldnâ€™t ever have a problem with running out of mana either.
The Witch Doctor Farming Strategy
Before you even think about fighting anyone you need to be prepared.
Summon all of your Zombie dogs and your Gargantuan.
Have all of your pets attack a group of enemies.
After the enemies are engaged itâ€™s time to lay down some damage.
Use Acid Cloud over top of the group of enemies.
Then cast Haunt on the most powerful enemies in the group.
Continue to chain cast Acid Cloud and Haunt until all your enemies are dead or they get past your pets.
If they start to get past everyone use Wall of Zombies to hold them back.
If the situation becomes really drastic you can use Sacrifice to burst down your enemies, but be prepared to run if it doesnâ€™t finish them off.
As long as you donâ€™t challenge enemies that are too strong for you, your pets shouldnâ€™t have a problem holding them back from you while you burn them down.
