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. When traits were changed back to passive skills in early 2011, Blood Ritual (as Ritual of Blood) was moved directly from a level 15 trait to a level 18 passive.


When the beta started in September 2011, Ritual of Blood was renamed Blood Ritual and moved to level 17. When passives were reorganized for Beta Patch 14, Blood Ritual was moved up to level 20.
