    I feel from the wording that you only gain the benefit while in the ritual area, that only lasts for 20s (or 48s). Could be wrong, though.

    My assumption is it's a buff that sticks with you wherever you go. There are two runes that specifically say "in the ritual area". So those that don't say that may not require staying still. If it does, that'll change whether I use it or not.



    The base skill, and all of the rune effects except the one dealing with duration state within the area, though as you said only two specify it as ritual area, I don't know if that difference is meaningful or not.

    [spoiler]
    I believe this Aidan/Aiden is indeed the Dark Wanderer, and that he is also Leah's father. This means that Leah would have been conceived by a man who was hosting Diablo. I'm not a Prime Evil myself, but you know, if I was stuck on the plane of Hell and I wanted to come back to Sanctuary, wouldn't it be nice if I had a young, healthy and somehow battle-trained body waiting for me? As far as I'm concerned, some of Diablo's essence might have always been in Leah. Perhaps Deckard Cain knows, and that's why he insisted to raise her himself, so he could keep an eye on her? We know Deckard Cain spent the 20 years between Diablo 2 and Diablo 3 researching prophecies on the return of the Prime Evils. If I was raising a girl with some of Diablo's essence in her and I was the last member of the Horadrim order, I think I'd like to keep her close, you know, just in case she could be a gateway to a Prime Evil.

    And by taking her under his wing in scholarly pursuits he ensures that she is less healthy and battle-trained. Brilliant! :lol:

    There will probably be thousands of Leonidases, but not very many Phormios.

    I don't think Rush of Essence stacks, but we'll see.

    Oh no, I hadn't thought of that, that makes me cry. :QQ:

    1. I would think it would go to at least 160% for zombie handler, though I wonder if you could obtain that without the passive.

    2. Whoops, miscounted.

    3. As long as you haven't cleared out your mana pool in 5 seconds, I believe it would be effectively indefinite. Even if you do, since casting it with rush of essence is a net gain of mana, I would think that after enough casts you would be gaining more mana than you are dumping.

    Sorry about the wording, I intended to say across several summons of zombie dogs, such as summoning a group, waiting for the cooldown to expire, sacrifice, summon, sacrifice.

    posted a message on A Few WD Questions and Speculation
    These are a few questions I have because I haven't been able to find the answers to them, maybe because the information hasn't been released yet:

    1. Can crimson runed Sacrifice stack, and if so, how much? It seems to me that you should be able to, with the present descriptions, chain the sacrifice buff across several summons of zombie dogs to stack it ridiculously high, barring whether they implement a limit or just have it refresh the buff.

    2. Are 2/5 of the spirit skills (on the rush of essence list) really going to have no mana cost? I realize that all of them (the ones without mana costs) do have cooldowns, though golden mass confusion doesn't have much of one. I certainly wouldn't mind a mana cost as the two builds I am most likely to use will utilize rush of essence.

    3. Does anyone have an inkling what the cast speed on spirit barrage will be. I have not seen it in many builds, but it will most likely be a mainstay for me if it works the way I think it will. Despite being a barrage, it isn't much of one unless it is runed with indigo. This makes me believe that the standard cast speed for it will be very low, so that it can be used as a barrage by spamming it. Pair it with rush of essence and it would appear to me that one could cast it indefinitely, pair it with indigo rune and it could be a great crowd clearer.

    4. How will damage mods affect pets? Will pierce the veil (and crimson runed sacrifice) only affect my WD, or will it also apply to my pets as an extension of myself? If they are affected by a temporary buff that I obtain, will it be applied to them automatically, or would they have to be resummoned?

    Edit:

    5. Alabaster Zombie Charger summons an explosive zombie dog, any chance that it could be sacrificed prior to hitting a target?
