No, sorry.

The choice of how you lost your parents determines which companion you will get in the Presidio quest.
i know when it is thanks.

i put it in general terms to the person's question i was answering besides you still get w/e companion fairly early in the game so to me its a starting companion

Ah, witchdoctors. Even if they are a "witch" I find it enjoyable myself, even though I am a boy. Great class!
TeaMan123 witchdoctor is another name for shaman.
Either title basicly means the same, so you can call yourself a shaman.

I am on my first character build and I chose Witchdoctor, I am currently lvl 26, and I have to say it is a ton of fun. I haven't had any real trouble with CR so far, but I still have a page or two worth of quests there to do. Too much traveling back and forth too....

I'm usually up for helping folks out on their quests, so keep an eye out for me

why ruin a good thing
I love being a witchdoctor, the only thing I cannot understand is why we have "the fizzle". You do not see guns misfiring or blowing up, you do not see swords breaking, why then do we have to have the fizzle.
I do not see why we have to be disadvantaged, it is not like they cannot block when they want to. Magic is our weapon and defense why take a stratagy game and turn it into pot luck.
Maybe, on the more advanced spells, but even the basic ones, give us a break.
If you don't want witchdoctors in the game then why make them a main character. I was really enjoying this before the fizzle, it isn't necessary and very frustrating. You might as well just put a sign saying we won't let you win this one so don't bother.

fizzle is useful because when I was defeating a tengu sorcerer in mooshu they mostly fizzled

Witch doctors get to summon characters on their side

I love being a witchdocter it is really fun and i like u as my teacher. Other people say u are creepy but i think you are cool :D i got a question though. Even though witchdocter is a "evil" class and everything, why is it stereotypically girls are all witchdocters? like most of the witchdocters that are enemys are girls. its like that same stereotype in w101 that most of the people in the life class are girls and most in death class are guys?

lol i never noticed this

That is a good point thou since in real life MOST witchdoctors are really guys now hoodoo/voodoo most higher ranked ones are female but in most tribes still to this day most WITCHDOCTORS are male.

I believe we do start out weak but once we get into the high lvls we can be some of the most powerful players in the game.

Is it me or do i always choose the school/class that is mostly unliked. Witchdoctor is a super cool school but it seems like people like up close combat a ton more. The same thing happens in Wizard101 because i love myth but more people fire or storm for the better damage. A lot of boss battles i have come out undamaged (but companions have) and killed the boss with my longe-ranged spells. I also find witchdoctor to be the "troll school in pvp. Since usually you will face any class other than witchdoctor you have a giant advantage. I forget what the spell is called but you get teleported because a crystal. I love to use that when close ranged people come close and go all the way across the board. It is so funny to see their reactions.

I just recently maxed out my Witchdoctor and I loved playing it. Next I'll begin my musketeer, but the Witchdoctor class will always have a place in my heart.

A boy witchdoctor would be called a "warlock" instead of a "witch". And I agree. I think witchdoctor is the best class to play as. They can "cast spells" that linger, summon allies, and can hit multiple enemies with just their basic attack. Anyone who's been to Aquila knows how difficult it is to defeat a witchdoctor.
