Ok so a lot of connection issues are arising. I'll try and post a video a bit later. What I've done so far is mix just the original Zero Dog build, and added the passive Fetish Sycophants. I was playing around with the gear I've had in my prior videos. The heavy AS gear I stack and I also swapped the AS out to the Physical%,Elite% gear that I showed in my most previous video.
I just got done running a Torment 4 rift full group. Besides all my party members constantly DCing. I noticed an extremely significant drop in my overall survivability. However, this is ok because the Ancient Parthan Defenders will help strengthen the survivability you may lose since you do not have a 5th zombie dog to sacrifice. Also keep in mind I have only one Zunimassa piece I've found so far. It's the Zunimassa Pox. Meaning I have yet to even be capable of even striving and or testing putting these two together.
I had a total of 4-8 fetishes up usually. Two other WD's were in party with me one running the actual Fetish build with some gear requirements, and the other running a Bear Build. Lots of stuff everywhere lol. As soon as I make a video I will post up for all to see.
I would like to take a second to say great job Blizz. I'm loving this expansion, and love what direction this game is headed in! XD

I have no specific gear requirements except for being able to attain the Zero Dog Cooldown via legacy gear. I use a 3 set Visage, Homonculus, Skull Grasp. The only gear I've been using other then that are pieces of gear I've used in prior videos. Stacking as, cc, cd its what I've been collecting and what I've found. I do use a SoJ with phys% and CC. Also keep in mind I have yet to find any pieces of gear that support this type of build. No zuni pieces no Tasker and Theos. I just swapped a passive out Fierce Loyalty for Fetish Sycophants. Using my own gear and gave it a whirl. Why? A) Who doesn't want to summon fetishes as they attack B) I get to incorporate the Zero Dog Build to do so. Meaning I get to enjoy this nice perk while not taking away from my overall play style which is using the Zero Dog Witch Doctor.
I've used this build to speed run Torment 2 Bounties and have used it in Torment 4 Rifts with a full group. Loads of fun, exploding dogs and fetishes everywhere. I will strive to get this build to do higher Torments. This will come through more testing, time, and gear.

Here is a link to the skill build http://diablonut.incgamers.com/skillPlanner/V2l0Y2hEb2N0b3IrNjArMTE3NDAyKzY3NjE2KzEwMjU3MysxMDI1NzIrNjc2NjgrMTA2MjM3K1J1bmVfQStSdW5lX0UrUnVuZV9EK1J1bmVfQitSdW5lX0ErUnVuZV9CKzIxODU4OCsyMDg2MDErMjA4NTk0KzIwODU2Mysx

Why the Zero Dog Build when it comes to everything I do? Simple it's the build I've spent about a year playing and perfecting prior to RoS. The reason I even became a Zero Dog WD in the first palce was so my friends and I could have fun doing all content on MP10. Without bashing our heads against our keyboards dying. Everything I've strived to do in this game and all the gear I've strived to acquire was for this build. This is my comfort zone. This is how I enjoy playing this game. I'm just a player in this game trying to show you a different perspective of play style that no one seems to be covering. You have a choice whether you want to see it or not. Also I would like to add that everyone saying that because they don't have the gear to do what I do is useless. Please remember this we all had our chances to take whatever items out of the auction house we wanted to bring into Reaper Of Souls. It is not my fault mostly everyone decided to overlook it.

I would like to take a second to thank the Admins and players for their patience, insights, and tolerance in the forums I post in. I'm sorry for the craziness I've caused. Thanks all you've been a great help.

Hello everyone Blasphemy here with an update on another perspective I'm trying when playing with this build. After closer observation of what a majority of you as well as some of the most viewed are going about doing these fetish types of builds. I started altering and playing around with a few other options within my build so I could adjust to this type of play style. I was really enjoying Locust Swarm with the Rune Pestilence. However, I'm really favoring Plague of Toads with the Rune Rain of Toads. I love Rain of Toads this is the primary I used back when I was MP0 runnning to Paragon 100 as a Zombie Bear WD. Another thing I've gone about testing and switching in and out is the Sacrifice Rune I am using as a Zero Dog WD. I've been swapping in between For the Master and Provoke the Pack for this build and play style only.The last thing I have to add is I'm going to give the Razor Strop a go with this build and play style it seems very fitting. I'll keep further testing and provide more updates as I come across them. Below I will leave two links for both the skill builds im playing with atm. Thank again everyone for checking out my perspectives as a player and Witch Doctor. I'm having a incredible amount of fun in Patch 2.0.5

Hello everyone Blasphemy again with an update on this build that I have been working on. I'm comfirming that the last post with the two skill builds I have altered to fit this play style. Will be how I run this build from here on out. Also that I will be deleting my prior video on this build I have come out with because it is an inaccurate representation of what I'm doing with this build now and on the type of play style this build demands and requires. I'll be keeping the Cow Rift video and altering the name to be Blasphemy hits the Cow Rift. Below under the links of the skill builds I will leave details on what Torment levels I can handle on these and what situations I use them in.

This format of the build with Sacrifice with Rune For the Master. Can handle torment 5 and group gameplay aiming to get this build to run T6 which will be attained after finding the proper stats that I require on the Ancient Parthan Defenders.

This format of the build I've run on Torment 2 speed bounties and can handle torment 3 and 4 group gameplay. Torment 4 full group gameplay is the max I can push this nice damage boost side of the build at the moment. Until I get more gear so I can attempt to take this to higher levels of gameplay. I would like to be able to run this on Torment 5 and 6 the damage boost is very nice. I can get my sheet dps to hit 1.5+ million as a Zero Dog WD

I will post more updates as I get them as usual, and again Thank You to all those that support what I'm doing.

This post is for all those who have this to say, " Your build requires legacy pieces that doesn't drop anymore. You cannot attain these pieces." Translation- Why are you even bothering? Stop posting your perspective of game play for everyone to see.


This is what I have to say, " Players have been using the forums to trade one another some have singular pieces. Lets not forget all the other Zero Dog Witch Doctors that kept their gear. What your saying is that my hard effort as a fan and a player as well as other Zero Dog Witch Doctors out there. Our perspective in Reaper Of Souls isn't worth looking at. Are you saying they are not entitled to try this out as well?
Just know this if it was you sharing your efforts as a fan and player, and I couldn't do what you are doing. I wouldn't take the time out of my day to discredit or jump in bashing what your are trying to attain.
I just want to know why most of you are saying you can't get these pieces of gear. So please instead of posting you can't attain these pieces anymore. Please post the legacy pieces do not drop anymore. However, you can still try to attain them. Some players have singular pieces of gear, and players are using the forums to trade one another for them. Others have full sets and can still do this. I bet you I won't see what I just previously stated on any persons post trying to discredit this build.

Hi, lots of info here. Sorry for the dumb question, but whats the zero dog build? I hadn't been around for several months before RoS came out. Is it taking advantage of homonculus free dogs? IDk, I see you have dogs slotted in your last post.

I am running a pet build as well, and I was just looking for ideas to improve on what I currently have. I was comfortable running T3 solo rifts quickly until Sunday. Yeah, it took me this long to get a mask of jeram. Over 15k shards gambled. I had a quetz and trifecta tasker and theos before I got a mask of jeram. I jumped to speed farming T4. I can solo T5 ok, but its not fast enough for me to call it on farm yet. Thats why I am looking for improvements.

I can't watch your videos right now, but I will check them out later.

No worries at all Ron. The Zero Dog build is a build based upon attaining the 0 second Cool Down on the skill summon zombie dogs. This allows me to summon zombie dogs repeatedly without having to wait for a Cool Down. In conjunction it also allows you to use the skill sacrifice repeatedly. All in all you can constantly summon zombie dogs and sacrifice them. A lot of zero dog wd's tie in The Final Gift Rune which allows a 15% health globe to be summoned when sacrificing a zombie dog. The only way to attain the Zero Dog Cool Down to my knowledge so far is by using pre-RoS gear. I use a 7 sec Visage, 7 sec Skull Grasp, and 20 sec Homonculus. For a total of 34 second overall CD for the summon zombie dog skill. I also use the Passive Tribal Rites to help attain the Zero Dog CD. Do not be discouraged if you cannot attain the Zero Dog build. Nothing would make me happier then for everyone to be able to attain these type of builds I'm creating. However, you said you where working on a Pet Doctor. I had to build a Pet Doctor myself to learn this type of play style so I could mix it with the Zero Dog build correctly. I'll leave that info in the next comment box after this one. Keep up at it and Good Luck on great loots!

The Pet Doctor that I built so I could learn this type of play style while mixing it with my Zero Dog build.

10,423 Int, Aps 1.76, 55% CC, 411% CD, 1,390,430 Damage, and only 20% Physical% atm will be attaining more of this stat.

Ah ok, its very different than what I thought. I messed with a sacrifice build at one point, but I am sure I didn't have an optimal set of gear...I didn't even know you could get dogs to no cooldown pre-RoS.

My pet doctor isn't nearly as good as yours, but I recently got my hands on lots of different gear options. I tried a bit of T6 this morning and completed several bounties. I didn't try a rift because I am certain some of the act 4/5 mobs would have made me quit the rift if they had spawned.

I have no legacy gear, and have no desire to try and trade for it so sacrifice build like you are talking about is out for me. Thats ok though, there are probably more T6 viable endgame WD variants than any other class has so no complaining from me.

If you play on US maybe we can run a bit together some time. It would be interesting.
