Explosive Beast


From Diablo Wiki

Explosive Blast is a rune effect in Zombie Charger, a Physical Realm Witch Doctor skill.

This rune effect summons an explosive Zombie Dog that rushes towards the target before detonating in a blast of flame that deals 235% weapon damage to all enemies within 9 yards.

The damage is slightly higher than the base skill, but it lacks the piercing effect, though the 9 yard radius of this one can hit multiple enemies if they are closely-spaced.
