Summons a single colossal zombie that fights at the Witch Doctor's side until it dies. It attacks for 450% of the Witch Doctor's damage, and has roughly 150% of the Witch Doctor's Life, sharing most of the master's stats. Only one such zombie can be summoned at a time. The zombie is summoned at the cursor's location, anywhere within 80 yards.
