Shatter Strike Spellblade Guide


The Shatter Strike Spellblade decimates enemies with a flurry of circular Cold attacks, building up huge amounts of ward every attack thanks to Lost Knowledge.

This is a Melee build with a large area, giving it very good clear. It also has excellent damage scaling thanks to huge Crit scaling from Cold Steel, incredible attack speed from Iceblink and a massive mana pool that allows it to attack mana times before needing to recover with Mana Strike. The build is also exceptionally tanky thanks to a huge Ward pool and Flame Ward

While this setup doesn't require any Uniques to function, Shard of the Shattered Lance, Peak of the Mountain, Ferebor's Persistence and Strands of Souls are all very valuable, while Vessel of Strife is highly desirable to push Empowered Monoliths but also difficult to get without very good gear. The investment to maximize this build is considerable, so it is not recommended as a starter.

Overall this Spellblade has incredible clear, single target, and defenses that make it suited for all the content in the game. If you are looking for a high performing build that will reward you in the gear chase, this build is for you!
