    Removed/repurposed WD skills in the new build

    Completing the skill page updates, and here's the list of removed Witch Doctor skills.
    http://www.diablowiki.net/Witch_Doctor_skills

    These were all in the game as of Blizzcon 2009, and are gone now. I believe all were passives, so most are probably now traits, or were combined in function. No new WD skills were added in this build, which is unusual. The Wiz and Barb had several new ones.

    Zombie Skill Tree

    Spirit Skill Tree

    Voodoo Skill Tree

    Pour a splash of your next bottle of jungle voodoo grog in their memory.

    Similar summaries of the removed Barbarian and Wizard skills are found in their class forums.

    The WD does have a complement of 23 skills as of this Blizzcon and a fairly balanced mix of Spirit, Voodoo and Summons. I'd be surprised if there will be a lot of changes to his skill setup.




    Thanks to this thread we can easily compare the removed skills with the new traits. Most of the skills were indeed repurposed into traits. Three were outright removed and two skill were split into two traits each.

    Mind and Body
    This skill was split up into two traits. Mana Regeneration and Mind & Body. Instead of healing a straight number of mana and health they are now percentage based.

    Unrelenting Assault
    This was converted into the trait Unrelenting Assault.

    Leader of the Pack
    This skill was completely removed.

    Ferocity
    This skill was split up into two traits. Ferocity and Care of the Master. The first increases the damage of your summons and the second the health.

    Spirit Vessel
    This was converted into the trait Spirit Vessel.

    Rituals
    This was converted into the trait Rituals.

    Spirit Sense
    This skill was completely removed.

    Ritual of Blood
    This was converted into the trait Ritual of Blood.

    Meditation
    This was converted into the trait Meditation.

    Death Pact
    This skill was reworked into the trait Death Pact. Instead of becoming immune to damage when the WD's health drops below 10% there is now a Damage Reduction effect when the WD's health drops below 50%.

    Jungle Fortitude
    This skill was completely removed.

    Blood Rites
    This skill was reworked into the trait Blood Rites. Instead of increasing his spell damage the trait now increases the WD's damage.
