Numbing Dart


From Diablo Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Numbing Dart is a rune effect in Poison Dart, is a Physical Realm Witch Doctor skill.

This rune effect adds a slowing debuff to the single dart, reducing the target's movement speed by 60% for 2 seconds. As only a single dart is fired and as it will always hit the monster in the front, this is best used against a single target, or perhaps two or three targets at most, if the Witch Doctor can alternate aiming between them.
