Burning Dogs


From Diablo Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Burning Dogs is a rune effect in Summon Zombie Dogs, a Support Witch Doctor skill that creates undead hounds to tank for the Witch Doctor.

This rune effect adds a fire effect to the Zombie Dogs, burning nearby enemies for 2% of the Witch Doctor's weapon damage.

As with Rabid Dogs, the biggest change from this is in the graphic, as the fiery dogs look very nice.

The damage added by this rune effect is minimal, however, each tick of the fire has a chance of triggering Life on Hit effects and chance-on-hit effects from equipment such as Stun, Freeze, Fear, etc.
