Roll the Bones

Jump to: navigation, search

Roll the Bones is a rune effect in Firebomb, is a Physical Realm Witch Doctor skill.

This rune effect causes the flaming skull to bounce twice, each of which bursts for the same damage as the original impact. This guarantees a longer, slightly slower spread of the flames, and makes it more effective against groups of enemies.

The Witch Doctor should aim the bomb at the front edge of a group of enemies, allowing the flames to spread through them with the second and third bounces.
