  • Legendary Version:
    • Forced Affix: Heavy Stun
      • "Stuns the victim."

Notes[]

  • The shockwave produced by the third hit in this weapon's combo is considered a ranged attack and is therefore affected by ranged mutations such as Point Blank Mutation IconPoint Blank.
  • When used with Porcupack, rolling through an enemy will still trigger the gold drop, making it a perfect match-up with Dagger of Profit.
  • In its improved form, works flawlessly with Instinct of the Master of Arms, since all hits are critical hits.
  • Blocking extensively with Greed Shield can help reach the 12000 gold needed for the improved form.

History[]

  • 2.8: Introduced.
  • 3.0: Added the Legendary Affix "Heavy Stun".
