Diablo III's spellcasters had not gotten any video love from Blizzard yet... until today. Enter the Witch Doctor, the next unveil in Blizzard's character class series. If you like throwing spells, then you'll want to take a close look at this installment.
As champions of the Unformed Land, the Witch Doctor class is tasked with keeping the spiritual balance and harmony in Sanctuary.
Known as the Mbwiru Eikura to the tribes of the Teganze, the Unformed Land is believed to be the true and sacred reality, the purest form of existence. To the umbaru, their mortal duration is but a pale shadow of the Unformed Land, a testing ground for those wishing to ascend to the higher plane. And only the witch doctors are able to look upon the Mbwiru Eikura, through mastery of potent herbs, bloody rituals, and an intense focus known as the Ghost Trance. Their combined spiritual and military acumen has earned the witch doctors a place of status and reverence amongst the tribes. Theirs is a calling that requires an incredible degree of courage, self-sacrifice, wisdom, and foresight.
Blizzard has been releasing a trailer a week, leading up to Diablo 3's release on May 15. The Wizard should get a new trailer next week on the Darkness Falls, Champions Rise site.
