Culling strike

From Path of Exile Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Culling strike is a property that causes hits to kill enemies left with 10% of maximum life or less.

Mechanics

A hit with culling strike will kill an enemy if it is still alive with 10% of maximum life or less after the hit. This occurs instantly; there is no delay between the enemy taking damage from the hit and being killed by culling strike.

Culling strike does not trigger when an enemy is reduced to zero life outright by the damage inflicted by a hit. This is relevant for effects that care about overkill damage, such as Herald of AshHerald of AshSpell, AoE, Fire, Herald, Duration
Radius: 10
Mana Reserved: 25%
Can Store 1 Use(s)
Cooldown Time: 1.00 sec
Requires Level 16Grants a buff providing fire damage based on your physical damage. While you have this buff, if you kill an enemy, other enemies near them will be burned based on the overkill damage. The burn inflicted by this skill can only be affected by modifiers to damage over time (burning damage is damage over time).Per 1% Quality:
0.75% increased Fire Damage
Gain 15% of your Physical Damage as Extra Fire Damage
Base duration is 4 seconds
Base Burning Damage is 25% of Overkill Damage
(9-12)% more Spell Fire Damage
(0-38)% more Burning Damage

Since culling strike is a property of hits, it is not applicable to damage over time.[1]
