Faster Casting SupportIncreases the cast speed of Ethereal Knives, allowing it to be used more frequently.
Faster Projectiles SupportIncreasing the projectile speed of Ethereal Knives increases how far the projectiles can travel. When paired with the Pierce support, Faster Projectiles will allow your projectiles to travel deeply through packs of mobs.
Physical to Lightning SupportConverts 50% of Ethereal Knives' physical damage to lightning damage, as well as providing extra lightning damage based on your physical damage.
Pierce SupportAllows projectiles from Ethereal Knives to travel through extra numbers of enemies, ensuring that more enemies in a pack will be hit by the projectiles.
Spell Echo SupportRepeats Ethereal Knives an additional time while also greatly increasing the cast speed.

    Ethereal Knives

    EtherealKnivesEthereal Knives (often referred to as EK) is a spell that throws ten knives in front of the caster that deal physical damage. Multiple knives cannot hit the same target. The angle of the spell's arc is fixed and does not depend on where the cursor is, unlike other projectile skills.

    Despite the fact that it does physical damage, Ethereal Knives is a spell and not an attack. It does not utilize weapon damage in any way.

    Skill functions and interactions

    • Lingering Blades: One in three projectiles from Ethereal Knives will leave a Lingering Blade on the ground. These blades can be detonated with BladeBurstBlade Blast or animated with AnimateWeaponAnimate Weapon. Lingering Blades have a duration of 6 seconds.

    • Physical spell damage: Ethereal Knives is affected by modifiers to Spell Damage, Physical Damage, and Projectile Damage. Its damage can also be improved by AddedFireDamageAdded Fire Damage Support, BrutalityBrutality Support, PhysicalToLightningPhysical to Lightning Support, HatredHatred, and HeraldofAshHerald of Ash.

    • Projectile speed: The projectiles move at an average speed of close to 120 units/s for roughly 0.25 seconds, putting their effective range at somewhere around 30ish units. Then inherently have a variation of +/−40% base speed, but the average will be around 30. Modifiers to projectile speed will increase the average distance that Ethereal Knives projectiles travel before they fade, effectively increasing the maximum range of the spell.

    • Leech: Since it is a spell, Ethereal Knives is not affected by Physical Attack Damage Leeched as Life or Physical Attack Damage Leeched as Mana. However, unspecified leech such as LifeLeechLife Leech Support will function with Ethereal Knives.

    • Can be used in left mouse button slot to cast and move.
