Unleash a plague of locusts that swarms an enemy, dealing
1040%
weapon damage as Poison over
8
seconds. The locusts will jump to additional nearby enemies.

Locust Swarm is a secondary Witch Doctor skill. It is unlocked at level 21.

OverviewEdit

The Locust Swarm projectile emits a spray of green insects which swarm over anything in close range. If they kill one monster and still have some duration remaining, they will spread to others. It is thus a useful skill to use against clustered enemies.
