Plague of Toads is a Poison spell used by Witch Doctors in Diablo III.


Releases four toads that leap erratically roughly 60 yards forward (may turn aside if it encounters a piece of impassable terrain), in a cone no wider than 90 degrees. If a toad collides with an enemy, it explodes, dealing Poison damage to one victim. Toads die in 3 seconds.


  • Explosive Toads: damage type changes to Fire, damage increases to 245%.
  • Piercing Toads: damage type changes to Physical, damage is reduced to 130%, but toads now pierce through enemies instead of only exploding once.
  • Rain of Toads: instead of usual effect, creates a rain of toads at the targeted area that deals 182% damage as Poison to enemies within 5 yards radius over 2 seconds.
  • Addling Toads: each enemy hit has a 15% chance to be Confuse for 4 seconds.
  • Toad Affinity: damage type changes to Cold and gain 9 Mana every time a toad hits an enemy.

Non-rune enhancements:Edit

  • Rhen'ho Flayer (Legendary Ceremonial Knife): toads home at enemies (turning aside if necessary) and explode twice (after hitting an enemy, continue moving, but cannot hit the same target again).
  • Simplicity's Strength (Legendary Gem): increases damage by 25% (+0.5% per rank) and heals the character for 4% of maximum Life per hit (rank 25 bonus).
  • Boyarsky's Chip (Legendary Gem): Taunts the first enemy hit for 2 seconds (rank 25 bonus).
  • Helltooth Harness Set (Set Bonus for 2 items): damaging enemies with Plague of Toads will apply Necrosis, slowing enemies by 60%, increasing their damage taken by 20% and and inflicting 1500% damage per tick for 10 seconds. Elemental Damage type is chosen from the highest skill bonus of the character.

  • Spirit of Arachyr Set (Set Bonus for 6 items): increases damage by 2400%.
