No synergies with any active skills or other Witch Doctor passives are known.


Passive skills have had a long and storied history. When Diablo III debuted at the WWI 2008, skill trees included passive skills, much like in Diablo II. In 2010, it was announced that passive skills had been renamed traits and separated out from active skills. At the July 2011 Press Event, Blizzard announced that passive skills were once again in the game, replacing the traits system.


Vermin was not seen until it showed up in the Diablo III beta as a level 10 passive. In Beta Patch 15, Vermin was removed from the game.
