Rabid Dogs


From Diablo Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Rabid Dogs is a rune effect in Summon Zombie Dogs, a Support Witch Doctor skill that creates undead hounds to tank for the Witch Doctor.

This rune effect grants the dogs a poisonous bite that deals 9% of the Witch Doctor's weapon damage as poison over 3 seconds. This effect also turns the dogs green, which is in fact the most noticeable by product, since the added damage is negligible, when compared to the damage the Witch Doctor's attack spells are doing.
