Ravens can serve as scouts for players and are very useful in multiplayer. Each Raven has a chance to blind an enemy it attacks (except Bosses, Super Uniques, and other players), allowing players to easily kill an enemy. The blind chance depends on player level, skill level, monster level, and on difficulty (the harder Difficulty, the shorter duration), up to the point where Slvl 16 Ravens have a 100% chance to blind foes of equal to, or lower, level than the Druid. Visually, Blinded foes show a curse like Dim Vision, which impairs the normal application of Curses and other similar debuffs.
Ravens can be summoned in groups, allowing them to make rapid attacks as a swarm. Blizzard Q&A has described the Raven skill as 'Attacks waiting to happen'; what they mean is that the Ravens fly too high to be harmed, and continue attacking until their number of strikes have been spent.
For each level, the Druid gains 1 additional Raven (to a maximum of five), and each Raven gains an additional attack and increased damage. Initially there was no limit to the amount of ravens summoned, but like Skeletons, they were capped.
The number of hits listed is per Raven. At level 1 the total number of hits you can get is 12 (1 x 12), at level 20 you get 155 (5 x 31). Once all hits are spent, Ravens must be summoned anew.
