Haunt Idea

Witch Doctor
Haunt can affect up to 3 targets. Why not allow 3 stacks on one target?
Kinda works for me, maybe less total damage than the 3 seperate targets.

Maybe make it a runestone effect?
Whats the point, might as well multiply the damage of haunt by 3 and only have it effect one target. That would be overpowered though, so it would get nerfed. I like the spell how it is.

Plus they would have to rework the visuals so that you ccould tell how many haunts you had on a target. It all just seems kinda pointless TBH.

Who says it doesn't stack on one target?
Well, I'm disapointed... I always though it stack on 1 target and i just test it and it doesn't.

Hum... this spell isn't as powerful as I though in single target bosses....
I was just watching some videos of this and thought that stacking haunt up to 3 times on a single target would be crazy awesome... sadly, thanks to this thread, it appears it is not an option.

I'd like to see it become an option though! :)
It would defeat the purpose of it even being a dot in the first place if you could stack it. I mean, warlock dots in WoW never stacked did they?

other games have stacking Dots. its not a crazy idea its pretty common over all in mmo's
warlocks may not have stacking dots but in wow you have a lot of ability's so rather than giving warlocks 1 stacking dot and then coming up with more ability's to give them a well rounded feel they just gave the dots diff names =p

deadly poison is a stacking dot
This argument is giving me the !@#$s. It was said in another thread that a beta tester tested it and it does stack.

Um, no. That tester's findings are definitely wrong because I've done multiple tests today just to re-confirm my original findings. Haunt does not stack no matter how many times you cast it. It will also tick for the same amount at the same intervals.

TL;DR HAUNT DOES NOT STACK

Lol... today someone else tested it today and concluded that it did indeed stack (yet again). In fact he came up with a few interesting conclusions about Haunt:
