    WD Sacrifice build - Requesting assistance with "Primary" attack

    Unfortunately, I cannot post on the D3 forums as I don't own WoW anymore and didn't get SC2... So, here it is:

    I'm rolling a WD upon launch and plan to spec for AoE nuke sacrifice/zombie dogs. Here is the link to the build: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculato...VTj!dZW!cYYZYZ

    My biggest concern is the primary attack and I've flopped between Firebomb, haunt, spirit barrage, and locust swarm. I'm looking for high-spam and consistent AoE damage. I'd like a little feedback as to what everyone suggests, though I think that the best option is Firebomb -> Ghostbomb due to a high range of AoE and a mana cost of ten.


    For a reference of yards in AoE, here is the image I found here:

    I'm open to options and constructive criticism.

    Firebomb, zombie charger & acid cloud all ok. The two latter are a bit costly though.

    I appreciate the response. Charger is a bit mana heavy in my opinion and I wanted to diversify the assaults with poison/fire/physical due to enemy resistances and immunities. I will definitely explore the option of zombie charger, though. Thank you

    I'd suggest acid cloud runed with corpse bomb; since it's your only skill that really demands on mana, it should be okay

    The AoE is good. Mana cost is high, I can account for it if I need to... but my only concern is the vague statement "in the area". I'm curious to see what the range of the spell will be

    It should be something close to 10 yards, from what I've seen in skills trailers

    Was that the one with the AoE centered around the WD? I would hate to have to run to a mob to cast and run back.

    I don't remember in which video I saw it, but it's a zombie kind of coming out of the ground and exploding where you cast him

    That makes sense. I appreciate it. Now that I look back and read the actual description, I understand it a bit better. For some reason, I was only comparing it to the necro D2 corpse explosion.

    Something along the lines of these two would be better I think. Swapping the Primary out with Spirit Barrage / Corpse Bomb / Dire Bats could be done as well.
