Pestilence is a rune effect in Locust Swarm, is a Physical Realm Witch Doctor skill.

This rune effect causes the Locust Swarm to split and leap to two new targets, if the first target dies while infested. As with many Witch Doctor skills, Locust Swarm is an odd sort of AoE, dealing steady damage to multiple enemies, rather than big damage to a single target.
