Originally perfected by the renowned Duelist Fammal during his reign in the arenas of Oriath, the deadly Double Strike brings fame and renown to those who master it. A Double Strike performs two regular melee attacks in the blink of an eye, dealing twice as much damage in a single span of time. Foes caught unawares will find themselves cut to ribbons or stunned into submission beneath a flurry of blows.

Description on the official Path of Exile website [1]

Double Strike is a melee attack that performs two fast attacks on a target enemy with the player's main hand melee weapon.

Skill functions and interactions

  • Dual Wielding: This skill will only attack with the main hand weapon while dual wielding.
  • Multiple Hits: This attack hits twice, activating gain on hit twice, and giving two opportunities to activate chance-based effects such as blind, knockback, stun, and elemental status ailments. It does not, however, have two chances to crit. If one hit is a crit, the other will also be a crit.
