Skill Design[edit]

Not much is known about this skill, how it works or how it looks. It is probably used for taking out ranged monsters who pack together to spam attacks on you, although it can also be used as an area denial tool, or better yet, cast it on yourself and watch the melee monsters burn as they try to get to you.

Trait Synergies[edit]

Several traits boost the damage of the Witch Doctor's spells. Only one seems to be a specific bonus that applies to this skill, though.

Note: The current trait list is very out-of-date and will no doubt be overhauled before game release.

Development[edit]

Pit of Fire originally appeared as a Witch Doctor skill in the BlizzCon 2009 demo and was still around in 2010. It has never been used by a fan or exhibited publicly.
