Hexed enemies are transformed into harmless critters (mostly chickens) for a short time. While hexed, they cannot attack, move and cast abilities, passive effects are nullified (even those that have been applied before the transformation: for instance, it suppresses the Reflects Damage affix for the duration), and players can move through them unhindered. It affects even monsters that are immune to Stun.
One of the runes of the Hex spell can transform the Witch Doctor into a very angry explosive chicken.
- Hex and Polymorph are identical recurring spells in the Warcraft universe, used by tribal shamans (former) and mages (latter). The animals thse may transform an enemy into include chickens, cats, frogs, pigs, penguins and sheeps. However, unlike their Diablo counterpart, these spells usually fade if the victim takes any damage.
