Spirit Walk is a Defensive Witch Doctor skill.


Separates the Witch Doctor's spirit from their body, allowing the spirit to move unhindered, phasing through enemies and obstacles (including Waller affix barriers), with +50% movement speed, clearing and ignoring all status effects. The physical body will remain where it was left, unattackable and untargetable by enemies, taking no damage.

The spirit is also unattackable and invulnerable, immune to Crowd Control, but may still use all attacks and spells. Whenever the effect ends, the spirit and the body merge at the current location of the spirit. Spirit Walk does not interrupt cast of other spells, and can be cast while moving.

The cooldown does not start until the effect wears off, normally allowing the skill to be used every 12 seconds.

Prior to patch 2.1.1, the physical body was attackable, and taking more than 50% of maximum Life in damage would cause the effect of Spirit Walk to prematurely end.
