Next of Kin


From Diablo Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Next of Kin is a rune effect in Sacrifice, a Support Witch Doctor skill designed to turn living Zombie Dogs into damaging explosions.

This skill rune grants a 35% chance of a new Zombie Dog resurrecting from the corpse of any Sacrificed dog. This is one of the most useful runes, given the lengthy cooldown required to recast more dogs directly.
