Angry Chicken


From Diablo Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Angry Chicken is a rune effect in Hex, a Support Witch Doctor skill that summons a Fetish Shaman who then turns enemies into chickens.

This rune effect changes the skill function fundamentally, causing the Witch Doctor to turn into a chicken. No skills can be used while transformed. The chicken will detonate after 5 seconds, or when the player presses any skill button. Detonation causes 215% weapon damage to all nearby enemies and returns the character to a human form. This skill also offers a hidden 15% movement speed increase while transformed.
