    The idea behind this build is using the Witch Doctor passive Vision Quest along with Spirit Barrage for unlimited single target nuke spam. Spirit Barrage deals damage equal to 190% weapon damage (according to D3 website), with no cooldown, making it the highest single target spell the Witch Doctor has. Haunt will also be applied, as it's a high damage DoT that will tick as you spam.

    My build on my level 44 Witch Doctor:
    http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/witch-doctor#geYPQj!fWU!aZbabb
    Skills:
    Spirit Barrage (The Spirit is Willing)
    Haunt (Resentful Spirit)
    CoolDown Skills:
    Fetish Army (Fetish Ambush) CD: 120 seconds
    Summon Zombie Dogs (Life Link) CD: 60 seconds
    Mass Confusions (Mass Hysteria) CD: 60 seconds
    Big Bad Voodoo (Slam Dance) CD: 120 seconds

    Passives:
    Rush of Essence (Mana Regen
    Pierce the Veil (Extra Damage)
    Vision Quest (Mana Regen)

    Use the cooldown spells listed to put them on CD. This will proc Vision Quest. You can then spam Spirit Barrage while applying Haunt for extremely high single target DPS.

    Variations:
    -You can of course switch out any of the CD spells for other spells with shorter CD's. It's merely more convenient to not have to reapply CD's every 15 seconds.
    -The runes for each spell can be swapped out as well. These are just the ones I personally like or currently have.

    I would love feedback on the build. Criticism or suggestions welcome.
