Soul Harvest is a Terror Witch Doctor skill in Diablo III.


When cast, leeches life force from all enemies around the Witch Doctor, causing no damage, but for every enemy harvested, the Witch Doctor will gain a bonus to total Intelligence, stacking up to 5 times (can harvest more than 5 enemies, but only 5 will give the Intelligence buff).

If cast again, the new stacks will be added to existing ones (up to the maximum limit allowed), and duration of all stacks will be refreshed. The amount of enemies to harvest is not limited.

Casting Soul Harvest does not interrupt other casts, and can be done while moving.


  • Swallow Your Soul: increases maximum Mana by 5% per stack of Intelligence, and restores 5% of maximum Mana (after the increase) for each enemy harvested.
  • Siphon: instantly restores Life for every harvested enemy. The amount scales with level, up to 32185 per enemy at level 70.
  • Languish: Increases the Witch Doctor's Armor by 10% per stack and reduces the movement speed of harvested enemies by 80% for 5 seconds.
  • Soul to Waste: also increases the Witch Doctor's movement speed by 5% per stack.
  • Vengeful Spirit: each harvested enemy also suffers 630% damage as Physical. The corpses of enemies that Soul Harvest kills are obliterated.

  • Raiment of the Jade Harvester Set (Set Bonus for 4 items): Soul gains the effect of every rune, and remaining cooldown is reduced by 1 second when casting Haunt or Locust Swarm.
  • Raiment of the Jade Harvester Set (Set Bonus for 6 items): casting Soul Harvest consumes up to 10000 seconds of Haunt, Locust Swarm and most other damage over time effects on harvested enemies, instantly dealing the remaining damage of consumed duration, and reduces all damage taken by 50% for 12 seconds.
  • Sacred Harvester (Legendary Ceremonial Knife): increases maximum number of Intelligence buff stacks to 10. Other effects that scale with number of stacks also can go up to 10.
  • Lakumba's Ornament (Legendary Bracers): each stack also reduces all damage taken by 6%.
