Ground Slam skill screenshot.jpg

Raising a staff or two handed mace high above their head, the player slams it earthward with a crackling thud. The force of this blow sunders soil and rock, forking outward to stun and damage enemies that stand ahead. At greater levels of skill, the fissures from Ground Slam travel a long distance, causing tremendous harm to anything caught in their path.

Description on the official Path of Exile website [1]

Ground Slam is a melee attack creating a wave that travels forwards and damages enemies with an increased chance to stun.

Skill functions and interactions

  • Accuracy: Accuracy is a factor despite the nature of the skill. Ground Slam can miss.
  • Dual Wielding: Ground slam with Dual Wielding will not function unless a mace is in the main hand. Only the main hand weapon is used to attack.
  • Reduced Enemy Stun Threshold: This essentially means that enemies struck by Ground Slam have a greater chance to be stunned than with other attacks.
