Spider Queen

From Diablo Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Spider Queen is a rune effect in Corpse Spiders, a Physical Realm Witch Doctor skill.

This rune effect summons a larger "spider queen" which gives birth to spiderlings, which deal the same 16% weapon damage as the base skill. The queen lasts for 15 seconds, which is much longer than the base spider effect lasts.

The multiple hits from the spiderlings are useful for triggering Life on Hit effects and chance-on-hit effects from equipment such as Stun, Freeze, Fear, etc.
