    Wands are Dumb

    I want to be a WD not an orchestra conductor.

    I want a shriveled monkey paw. I want a chicken I hold by the feet with blood dripping from its throat while its nearly severed head swings. I want an elephant tusk that enhances my magic but can also be used to impale monsters with. I want a human spine with a enough connective tissue that I can use as a whip.

    Sorry but a twig just is not going to cut it for this character.

    Yeah, a bloody chicken on the back of the WD would be awesome. :evil:

    Agreed on all counts. Wands are for Wizards.

    Rubber Chicken with a Pulley in the middle?


    Seriously, the monkey paw or something sounds nice ;)

    Not too many gamers these days have played Monkey Island.

    The Butcher: "Aaah, fresh meat!"
    WD: "I'm selling these fine leather jackets..."

    I love it.

    Re: Wands are Dumb

    I can't see a guy in leaves using huge metal swords. A WD should be using more organic weapons. So here are more random ideas:

    Gharbad's horn - magical and stabby
    Fangskin's tail - whip with a sharp point at the end
    Stormtree's thorned mace - woody and spikey

    Agreed. This guy looks down and dirty, a polished wand doesn't do him justice

    Re: Wands are Dumb

    Some mummified demonic wang, perhaps?

    I am trying to figure out whenever that would attract or scare away the stereotypical 12 year old children to/from playing the WD.

    The human spine whip would be awesome. And maybe a voodoo doll in the other hand...

    I'd like to see the Witch Docotors use magical gloves and gauntlets instead of wands.

    Your tone is annoying, you're like one of those "I-want-yada-yada-I-think-yada-yada" idiots.

    Anyway I guess they can approach the wand approach but not a piece of wooden stick but rather with a shrunken head attached , or feathers and otherwhat-have-you voodoo thingy.

    What about a rubber chicken with a pulley in the middle? He could wear some fine leather jackets for the extra defense rating.

    When is the WD seen using a Wand? The gameplay vid on the site shows him with a Dagger.

    Well i think the mace made of skulls which leaves magical powders behind is real cool, its in the diablo 3 official site on the wd page.
