He is one big ole brute!

Protection needed

  • Long Range fighting protection  

Best follower

  • Eirena the Enchantress

7. Witch Doctor

He loves a little voodoo.  

Class style

  • Long Range

Protection needed  

  • Melee fighting protection

Best Follower  

  • Lyndon the Scoundrel
  • The witch doctor tends to stand in one place while he casts his spells. This leads to becoming a target for long-range fighters as well as the melee fighters. The scoundrel can handle both fighters giving the best protection.
