I was just curious, I am level 15 (witchdoctor) and i just got to valencia. the clothing option in the gold shops is worse than the first outfit your class is given in the chest. I am still wearing level 5 gear and the houngmans robe because the stats are the same or better than what is available. my question is when does the gear match your area and level? it seems to me this is a ploy to get you to buy the crown gear. without better gear i am either gonna be forced to buy crown gear or lose a lot of battles.. not sure if anyone else is having this same issue.
Witch Doctor clothing is seriously lacking in the game. There isn't much out there to choose from, unfortunately. Plus, most of it is pretty ugly (mundane).
Once you get to Cooper's Roost at Cool Ranch, the vendors there are better. Crown gear is the best gear a Witch Doctor can get in the game. Don't worry about crown staffy weapons, as you'll be earning L10, L20, L30, etc, weapons through quests as you play the game, and they have the same stats as crown gear.
Be sure to farm or buy gear with damage, will, and resistance. All three would be great, but any combination with two of the stats would work just fine.
I remember in Beta, my Witch Doctor was a L50, but still wearing L35 gear, as that was the best I could get. It worked just fine though!
