    my melee witchdoctor gear?

    Arrrr Pirate101 Central! It has been a while since I have posted, but even then I didn't post much. Well I have a bit of a discussion as well as a nice question for you all. I have a melee witchdoctor who is on a way to becoming max, he pretty much has the gear he needs. I'd like to see what you guys think.

    Here is what I think it is pretty good!

    Iron Skin Hat
    Robe of the Houndini
    Great Shaman's Wraps
    Haywire Warmage Regalia (need to farm)
    Patch of Chthonic Rage (need to farm)
    Earthen Charm
    Spirit Walker's Charm (need to farm)
    Reckless Ring

    My pet provides the grants mojo rising and relentless

    What do you guys think? something I should change?

    Well, congratulations on your decision to run a melee Witchdoctor! I surely don't see many of them running around. I'm not familiar with some of the gear you have chosen, since my Witch is pretty traditional and uses max level gear from Kane and the Party Barge quests. If you haven't started doing those, you may want to for the totems like the Magus' Gilded Globo or the charms like the Benandanti Necklace.

    The Party Barge quests don't give you rewards every day you do them, but if you need gold for training tomes, etc., they can really help.

    Seems like you have a plan on what you need for the build your going for...I wish I had some advice but I have never run a melee witch; however, I have partied with them and when they get on a chain from their attacks its beautiful to watch. Good Luck!

    Ah, someone else with an unorthodox playing style. As a mojo swashbuckler who has abandoned his blades in favor of the wand [only in a scratch team setting], I wish you all the best in your pursuit of being a melee witch.

    If I were to give you one piece of advice, just make sure you buff yourself before engaging with higher level melee enemies with your melee attacks and powers. Going against level 70 marines, angels and dragoons can be quite tense even for melee based units, and I have seen many of them die due to lack of protection and buffs.
    Actually, one more piece of advice, don't forget that you are still a witch, and you can utilize your witch powers in battle. Your magic attacks are still powerful, much much much more so than melee attacks in a scratch team setting.

    So yeah don't forget to analyze the situation as well. Too many players use the same gear/strategy/set-up for each fight, when they could be much better with a different approach. There is no rule bounding you to forever play as a melee witch, if you feel like a shooty witch or traditional witch is better for a certain situation than melee witch- I encourage you to play these ways as well. Of course, this means you have to have various battle gears and powers, and pets in your arsenal. I myself have 2 primary playing styles- mojo buckler [team-wise] and shooty buckler [solo], and some others depending on the situation [i.e I equip buck charges when I was farming lo-pan to easily reach him].

    Good luck!

    That's definitely a rare build haha. I remember watching one of Eric Stormbringer's videos where he ran a melee witch build, but it's super rare and hard to pull off because of witch's fragile base stats. I wish you all the best with it! O:

    nice man, I run musketeer/witchdoctor, but I can see the benefit from your style, with the right talents your not completely defenseless against shrouded swashbucklers and musketeers don't dominate in a ranged fight
