Big Bad Voodoo is a Voodoo Witch Doctor skill unlocked at level 25. This skill summons a fetish to perform a ritual dance which buffs all nearby allies with increased attack and movement speed.

This skill summons a piggybacking Fetish Shaman. That creature remains stationary once summoned, and for the duration of the skill it creates a glowing circle on the ground. The Witch Doctor and all of his allies who stand within that circle gain a buff for the duration of the spell.

Given the the lengthy cooldown and powerful benefit, this skill is best saved for battles with Elites and other dangerous enemies.

[edit] Skill Design

The skill was first demonstrated at the July 2011 Press Event in the b-roll video. The skill appears to be 3 fetish stacked upon one another with the topmost fetish wearing a mask and waving a staff. The skill creates a green aura on the ground around the fetish which buffs party members within radius.

[edit] Development

Big Bad Voodoo was first seen at the July 2011 Press Event, where it was a level 25 skill. Unfortunately, no information about the skill's function was available.

[edit] Beta

The beta started in September 2011, and Big Bad Voodoo became a level 24 skill. The skill system was once again overhauled for the Beta Patch 13 in February 2012, and Big Bad Voodoo was classified as a Voodoo skill and moved back to level 25.

Big Bad Voodoo has, throughout development, been too high-level to play, so there are no gameplay reports describing it.


[edit] Media

A video showing the base skill and all five rune effects can be seen below. These were taken via an emulator pre-release, and the graphics may differ slightly in the final game.

Big Bad Voodoo can also be seen in action on this video:
