Fetish Army
 is a Voodoo Witch Doctor skill, unlocked at level 30. Fetishes are small enemies seen in Act III of Diablo II.



Fetishes, fetishes everywhere

When activated, summons 5 Fetishes armed with oversized knives who are autonomous minions following the Witch Doctor for 20 seconds.

Each Fetish is killable, blocks enemy pathing, and deals 180% damage as Physical on every attack. They have roughly 1/10 of the Witch Doctor's total Life, and fully benefit from their Armor and resistances, as well as Elemental Damage skill bonuses, elites damage and damage reduction, Thorns and many other stats, but not from Life per Hit (attacks have zero proc coefficient). They have average movement and attack speed.

Summoning the Fetishes costs no Mana, but has a 120 seconds cooldown.

Many other skills and items may summon Fetishes, even if the Witch Doctor has no Fetish Army skill, but having it is the only way to enhance them with runes.

There is a hard limit of how many Fetishes can be active at a time through this skill, but the Fetish Sycophants (see the image to the right) subtype are on separate counter, have no limit and do not benefit from runes and enhancements of the original Fetishes.


  • Fetish Ambush: enemies in the summoning area (roughly 15 yard radius) also suffer 250% damage as Physical when the skill is cast. Fetishes summoned through other means do not deal this damage.
  • Devoted Following: decreases the cooldown to 90 seconds.
  • Legion of Daggers: summons 3 additional Fetishes.
  • Tiki Torchers: also summons two Fetish Shamans who breathe fire in a cone in front of them and deal 85% damage as Fire per tick. The cones, unlike those in Diablo II, are rather short: 10 yards at most.
  • Head Hunters: also summons two Fetish Hunters that shoot blowdarts at enemies, dealing 130% damage as Poison.

Non-rune enhancementsEdit

  • Zunimassa's Haunt Set (Set Bonus for 4 pieces): Fetishes summoned through Fetish Army last until they (or the Witch Doctor) die.
  • Visage of Giyua (Legendary Voodoo Mask): summons a Fetish Army after killing two elite packs. An Army the Witch Doctor already has is replaced by the new one.
  • Carnevil (Legendary Voodoo Mask): all Fetishes (but not Sycophants) shoot an unmodified Poison Dart every time the Witch Doctor does, at the same point.
  • The Gidbinn (Legendary Ceremonial Knife): gives a 25% chance on attack to summon a Sycophant for 30 seconds.
  • Starmetal Kukri (Legendary Ceremonial Knife): reduces remaining cooldown by 1 second every time Fetishes (but not Sycophants) deal damage.
  • Mask of Jeram (Legendary Voodoo Mask): increases damage of Fetishes by 75%.
  • Tasker and Theo (Legendary Gloves): Fetishes attack 40-50% faster.
