Introduction

Utilizing one of the least popular Witch Doctor spenders, Grasp of the Dead, this build leans into the hex-heavy fantasy of the class, leaving enemies near-helpless while a rain of corpses demolishes their ranks. This sustain damage, control-heavy spec is better suited to Greater Rifts, where damage over time spells can show their potential.
