Soul Harvest is a Tier Four Witch Doctor skill. This skill has changed a great deal during development, and is now a buff that boosts the Witch Doctor's spell damage when there are numerous enemies in the vicinity.

Skill Design

This skill was initially a nova-type of attack, one that dealt damage and fed mana back to the Witch Doctor for everything it killed. That changed entirely during development, and the skill now buffs the Witch Doctor's spell damage.

None of the Witch Doctor traits directly improve Soul Harvest.

Runestone Effects

No runestone effects for Soul Harvest are known.


Soul Harvest was first seen in the WWI 2008 build. The skill was just the same at BlizzCon 2009, but had changed entirely by Blizzcon 2010, changing from an attack nova type skill to a buffing sort of war cry. See the [Doctor Skills Archive article] for original info and screenshots about Soul Harvest.
