Soul to Waste


From Diablo Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Soul to Waste is a rune effect in Soul Harvest, is a Spirit Realm Witch Doctor skill that acts as a buff to his spell damage.

This rune effect doubles the duration of the skill, from 30 to 60 seconds.

Fan opinions are divided on this one. On the one hand, a Witch Doctor will seldom go even 30 seconds without encountering a large enough group to replenish his Soul Harvest bonus to 5 stacks. On the other hand, some monsters are very dangerous to get that close to, and it can be nice to get a good 4 or 5 stack bonus and not have to worry about refreshing it for a full minute.
