Your Voodoo Doll is a very special item. This is the essential Voodoo instrument. The Voodoo Doll is given to you by Tia Dalma. You must collect magic artifacts to empower the item. It is a formidable weapon when used against enemies –– undead creatures, the East India Trading Company's Black Guards, and Navy guards. When you use it on your mateys, you can heal them, give them a boost of speed, or free them of curses. Plus, if you're on a long sea journey the doll is a great listener when you want to re-live your last run-in with the Navy.
Game Tip: Each level of Voodoo Doll increase will give you an additional 4 Health and 6 Voodoo points.
Attuning Your Voodoo Doll
Before you use your Voodoo Doll to attack or heal, the Doll must be attuned to a target. You can do this by holding the Doll over your new target and clicking the left mouse button. A purple vapor will rise from your target once it is attuned, telling you the Doll can now be used.
Game Tip: You can Attune more than 1 target at a time with the Voodoo Doll if you upgrade the Attune Skill. Attuning multiple friends or enemies allows you to heal or hurt them all at once, but the effect is split between the targets.
The Voodoo Doll can only attune to one victim at a time. If you want to use the Doll on a new target, you must re-attune the Doll to that new target before casting your spell or hex on it. You do this by pressing down on your left mouse button while the Doll is held over your new target.
Attacking with the Voodoo Doll
Once your Voodoo Doll is attuned, choose a hex or spell to cast on your target by clicking on it from the menu choices at the bottom of your screen. You can use the Doll as many times as you want against a single attuned target.
Game Tip: Attuning a Voodoo Doll means you have to get close to your enemy, but once the Doll is attuned, you can back off and attack from relative safety.
