Game data exports will becoming later as the technical changes in addition to regular changes take some more time.

Glancing Blows is a keystone passive skill which grants doubles both Attack and Spell Block while causing block to only prevent 35% of the blocked hit's damage.

Mechanics

Other than taking damage from the hit, the mechanics of block are unchanged. A blocked hit still cannot apply on-hit effects, such as ailments or curses. The chance to play the block animation is based on the full damage of the hit.

Location

The keystone is located on the middle layer of the west part of the tree, between the Marauder and Templar starting areas.

Class Distance from start
Templar 8
Marauder 10
Scion 14
Witch 16
Duelist 19
Ranger 24
Shadow 24

3.11.0
  • Timeless Jewel Keystone passives have become a popular feature for many builds, but are prohibitively difficult to acquire (especially without trade). We've moved some of the most build-defining Keystones out of the Timeless Jewels and into the tree itself. These Keystones have been added to the tree: The Agnostic, Glancing Blows, Supreme Ego, Wind Dancer and Eternal Youth.
  • Timeless Jewels -- New keystones have been added to replace the five that are now available on the passive skill tree. The new ones are: The Traitor, Supreme Ostentation, Chainbreaker, Transcendence, Immortal Ambition. Existing Timeless Jewels will retain the old keystones, but if you reroll them with a Divine Orb they will be able to reveal these new keystones.
