For Diablo3 Firebat build Witch Doctor, you can see Skorn as well as Mojo. This would confuse those who get get a new WD power leveled. They would want to know which one is better and what is the difference. Some players can not make the choices because they think Skorn can give higher life steal for a low price while one hand weapon and Mojo like A thing of the Deep can give huge boost on Vitality, Critical Hit Chance, Pickup Radius and Mana regeneration. So, how should a new Witch Doctor choose his weapon?
DPS: Generally, the one hand and mojo combination is pretty close with Skorn. But a top one hand and top mojo would be superior to Skorn. If you would like to focus on pure DPS, Skorn is cheaper of DPS compared to one hand + mojo. What's more you can easily get 5% life steal. And 180% critical hit damage is easy to get as well. As to the vitality, pick-up radius, you can get it from Pants, Chest Armor and Vile Ward.
5 million Diablo 3 Gold Budget combination Manajuma Knife + The Thing of The Deep
1 billion diablo 3 Gold Budget combination Rare one Hand + other Mojo
You can get pick up radius elsewhere. For example, you could get it from the Witching Hour. Other mojo like Zunimassa's String of Skulls can increase your damage against elites.
On conclusion, Skorn and Manajuma Knife + The Thing of The Deep are for the average players. There is not much difference. Rare one Hand + other Mojo is for those who are striving for top end items and have a lot of gold.
