Poison Dart is a Physical Realm Witch Doctor skill unlocked at level 1. It's a ranged attack in which the Witch Doctor uses a pipe to blow a poisoned dart at the enemy. The base skill deals poison damage and damage over-time; the runestone effects vary this quite a bit.

All runestone effects are subject to change during development and even after the game is released.

Poison Dart Runestone Effects[edit]

Alabaster Poison Dart Effect[edit]

Snake to the Face

[e]

Every shot has a 37% chance to be a snake that clamps on to the target and stuns it for 3 seconds.

The Alabaster effect is called Snake to the Face, much to Samuel L. Jackson's cinematic displeasure. This is not the final game version -- this video was taken from an emulator during the beta test and shows graphics that are still under construction.


Crimson Poison Dart Effect[edit]

Flaming Dart

[e]

Ignite the dart, allowing it to deal a full 227% weapon damage as Fire at once.

The Crimson effect is called Flaming Dart, and it increases the damage and changes it to fire. This is not the final game version -- this video was taken from an emulator during the beta test and shows graphics that are still under construction.


Golden Poison Dart Effect[edit]

Spined Dart

[e]

Gain 207 Mana every time a dart hits a target.

The Golden effect is called Spined Dart, and adds a mana steal effect to the poison attack. This is not the final game version -- this video was taken from an emulator during the beta test and shows graphics that are still under construction.


Indigo Poison Dart Effect[edit]

Splinters

[e]

Shoot 3 darts at once that deal 63% weapon damage as Poison each.

The Indigo effect is called Splinters, and it seems to be the highest damage of the lot. This runestone effect causes multiple darts to be fired in rapid succession, creating a sort of "machine gun" effect. The number of darts increases by one with each level of runestone, moving up to 8 at the highest level. All darts are fired at the same point, so this attack is best used when multiple monsters are in a row, as additional darts will hit a second or third target if early hits kill the front line enemy.

This is not the final game version -- this video was taken from an emulator during the beta test and shows graphics that are still under construction.


Obsidian Poison Dart Effect[edit]

Numbing Dart

[e]

Targets hit by a dart have their movement slowed by 60% for 6 seconds.

The Obsidian effect is called Numbing Dart, and it adds a slowing effect to enemies. This video was taken from an emulator during the beta test and shows graphics that are still under construction.
