Desperate Grasp

Jump to: navigation, search

Desperate Grasp is a rune effect in Grasp of the Dead, is a Support Witch Doctor skill that damages and slows enemies.

This rune effect reduces the cooldown from 8 seconds to 6 seconds. As the skill's duration is 8 seconds, this makes it possible for the Witch Doctor to have two GotD circles in effect at the same time, though only for a two second overlap. The circles will not stack damage; it's just one or the other, so casting a second one next to the first is a wiser course of action.
