Key Strategy

Key strategic elements to consider when playing Witch Doctor

  • Use Paralyzing Cask to secure ranged creep and harass the opponents at the same time.
  • If you did not take the Voodoo Festeration facet, consider investing a point in Voodoo Restoration on tough lanes.
  • With the Voodoo Festeration facet, level 2 Voodoo Restoration is a big damage powerspike for the Witch Doctor. Communicate with laning partner to go for a kill.
  • Witch Doctor has one of the highest kill potential at level 6 and you can even solo some heroes.
  • You can toggle Voodoo Restoration on and off while channeling Death Ward or teleporting.
  • Don`t show yourself at the start of the fight as you are squishy. Let opponents clump up and focus on your allies.
  • In the fights, make sure that Paralyzing Cask bounces and at least one opponent is Maledicted.
  • Pick up Aghanim`s Shard around minute 15 as it has a combination of defensive and offensive traits.
  • In the late game, you can pump in a decent amount of damage with Aghanim`s Scepter upgrade to Death Ward.
  • With the Voodoo Festeration facet, when not much is happening in the game, you can quickly farm creep waves and jungle camps with maxed out Voodoo Restoration.
