Bat Companion


From Diablo Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Bat Companion is a rune effect in Companion, a Discipline-spending Demon Hunter skill that summons a companion animal.

This rune effect summons a bat that flaps around, granting the Demon Hunter a steady regeneration of 3 Hatred per second. This is on top of the normal Hatred regeneration, and the Hatred earned by using various skills.

The bat does not attack enemies or get attacked by them, and this effect is essentially a winged-Aura, for intents and purposes.
