Hedge Magic

Hedge Magic 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 retains the chicken transformation ability, while also granting the Fetish Shaman the ability to periodically heal allies for up to 1860.582 Life. This seems like a large number to new players, but is a fairly irrelevant amount to high level characters with tens of thousands of hit points.

[edit] Trivia

This rune effect's name comes from the traditional term "Hedge Witch," which Wikipedia describes thusly:[1]

The traditional witch can also be called a Hedgewitch as the "hedge" signifies the boundary between this world and the Otherworld, which the witch may journey to and from.
