Witch Doctor is a fragile but deadly spellcaster with a unique method of eliminating his foes. His Maledict ability is feared by all, and has the potential for enormous amounts of damage. Heroes under the effect of Maledict will continue to take damage based on how much damage they have taken already. Using Paralyzing Casks, a clever Witch Doctor immobilizes his target, casts Maledict on them, then proceeds to cause as much damage as possible before they run. This is nearly always fatal if the Witch Doctor and his allies can injure the target a good amount after it is Maledicted. To aid in the destruction of his enemies, Witch Doctor can plant a potent Death Ward, which rapidly attacks nearby heroes as long as Witch Doctor channels it. Combined with Maledict and Paralyzing Cask, Death Ward is practically a guaranteed kill when ambushing an unsuspecting enemy hero. Voodoo Restoration turns him into a mobile healing fountain, quickly restoring the life of the Doctor and his allies in case an ambush doesn't go according to plan. Although Witch Doctor's Maledict combo is lethal on its own, it is even more dangerous when combined with allied attacks and spells.
