    Splitting Steel


    Splitting Steel is an attack which uses your sword or axe to launch a projectile that impales enemies on hit. This skill consumes Steel Shards from Call of Steel to cause the projectile to split and hit multiple enemies.

    Skill functions and interactions

    • Steel Shards: Equipping this skill grants the Call of Steel ability, which is used to generate Steel Shards. This skill consumes 1 Steel Shard to have the projectile split to hit additional nearby enemies.

    • Additional Projectiles: If you use the skill without any Steel Shards, it will always launch only one projectile, even if you have additional projectiles from other sources.

    • Gem Type: Splitting Steel is a Green gem, indicates it is a dex gem, despite in higher gem level, the str requirements is higher than dex. Splitting Steel does not affected by mod such as +# to Level of Socketed Strength Gems, but affected by mod such as +# to Level of Socketed Dexterity/AOE/Projectile Gems or +# to Level of all Physical Skill Gems. Splitting Steel is an attack skill thus physical spell mod does not affect this gem.

    • Melee: Shattering Steel is not considered a melee attack despite using melee weapons, similarly to Spectral Throw.

      • Shattering Steel does not have melee gem tag.
