Wolf Companion

Jump to: navigation, search

Wolf Companion is a rune effect in Companion, a Discipline-spending Demon Hunter skill that summons a companion animal.

This rune effect summons a wolf, which attacks enemies for 60% of the Demon Hunter's weapon damage. Unlike the other animal companions which last indefinitely, the wolf only persists for 25 seconds.

As with most of other semi-passive attacks in Diablo III, the damage isn't very high, but the "fire and forget" function can make this companion a helpful asset, especially on higher difficulty levels against Elites, when the Demon Hunter has her hands full running, Vaulting, and debuffing the enemies.
