Spell power + the damage from the weapon ( if using a staffy ) + Will = full damage. ( and any boosts, like Old Scratch or Juju )

Witchdoctors use weapon power when they attack with their weapon

Where as if the witch casts a heal or spell it use spell power

Weapon power for normal attacks, Spooky for all powers (single hits, area of effect, summons), Will for both (mainly getting crits with powers)

When you are on your Witchdoctor and you are not in a fight or going to be in a fight, hover your cursor over Spell Power and Weapon Power on the Character Screen (press 'c') and you will see where the total Spell Power and Weapon Power comes from. For Witchdoctors, most of the time (probably all the time), your Spell Power will be higher than your Weapon Power. This means that most of the time you will be a more effective fighter if you are using spells which is mostly what you use..
