Horrify is a Defensive Witch Doctor skill, similar to Terror curse or Howl.


When activated, enemies around the Witch Doctor are both Feared and Immobilized, effectively being paralyzed. 


  • Phobia: increases duration to 5 seconds, but no longer Immobilizes enemies, allowing them to flee.
  • Stalker: also increases Witch Doctor's movement speed by 20% for 4 seconds.
  • Face of Death: increases the radius to 24 yards.
  • Frightening Aspect: also grants +50% additional Armor for 8 seconds.
  • Ruthless Terror: gain 55 Mana for every horrified enemy.

Non-rune enhancementsEdit

  • Tiklandian Visage (Legendary Voodoo Mask): regardless of the selected rune, also Fears and Immobilizes enemies within 24 yards for 6-8 seconds.
  • Rechel's Ring of Larceny (Legendary Ring): grants 45–60% increased movement speed for 4 seconds after Fearing an enemy.
  • Pandemonium Loop (Legendary Ring): enemies slain while Feared die in a bloody explosion for 800% damage as Physical and cause other nearby enemies to flee in Fear.
