Consider helping out the community effort of getting The Fall of Oriath content to the wiki. All edits are appreciated!
We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Cold steel tends to solve most problems, but sometimes it's not quite enough. With Elemental Hit, a player infuses their weapon with the heat of a furnace, the electricity of a Summer tempest, or the icy chill of the Winter night. The specific element is randomly chosen, but the result is the same: tons of extra damage dealt, often killing the target with a single blow.Description on the official Path of Exile website 
Skill Functions and Interactions
Dual Wielding: Using Elemental Hit while dual wielding will alternate the weapon used for attacking.
Damage Display: The DPS display can't currently account for the random choice of element.
Elemental Damage: Each of the three damage types is increased by "weapon elemental damage" and "elemental damage" passives and item mods. Additionally, fire, cold or lightning damage passives and mods will boost the damage of only that respective type.
Random Damage Type: One and only one of the listed elemental damage types will be applied per attack. There is no way to influence which type is chosen.
