One of the new playable classes in Diablo III, the Witch Doctor is a powerful magic-based class that uses the mystic powers of summoning to create an army of minions. The Witch Doctor's gender is determined by the player.
The Witch Doctor was once one of the most devout of his kind, but the corruption of the spiritual leaders of the Umbaru caused considerable friction, and the Witch Doctor's beliefs and conviction lead to an exile. Despite this, the Witch Doctor was unshakable in the sense of faith to the spirits that had governed the Umbaru religious people, and the Witch Doctor set out on a journey to find truth and for honor- a quest that would find him facing off with the Demonic forces that threatened Sanctuary.
The Witch Doctor has been confirmed to be a playable character in the upcoming Blizzard All-Stars, and is currently the only playable character to represent the Diablo franchise in the game. In an attempt to bridge their universes together, subtle additions to the Diablo III model have been made- The Witch Doctor currently holds a Warcraft Troll head in one hand, and features a Zergling skull on his back.
The Witch Doctor is one of the game's Siege Class heroes, meaning that he is a devastating force on the battlefield, easily capable of out-ranging and obliterating towers and overwhelming the enemy if he is left to his own devices.
The Witch Doctor is one of the more popular classes for Diablo III, and is considered one of the "faces" of the installment, appearing in numerous ads and crossovers, even being the first character from the franchise to gain an appearance in Blizzard All-Stars. The Witch Doctor is a combination of the Necromancer, Sorceress and Druid from the previous games in the series, in addition to new features unique to the the class.
