Consider helping out in updating the wiki for 3.8.0 - see Path of Exile Wiki:To-do list/3.8.0.

Game data updates to the wiki have been started.

A system has been added that will automatically add divination cards and other items to the item acquisition sections where appropriate. Entries added by this system will be shown as automatic in the item acquisition section.

Some pages will need to be updated to include upgraded_from_disabled=true if they are not eligible for the system.

Some further details on what needs to be done can be found on Path of Exile Wiki:To-do list/Automatic upgraded from and issues can be posted on the talk page.

Hit

From Path of Exile Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The term hit refers to a strike dealt by an attacker to a target, which usually causes damage. The damage can be mitigated up to 0,[1] but can never be negative. Damage dealt by hits always has one of 3 damage sources (attack, spell or secondary, but note that damage over time never hits.[2]) and is combined of any 5 damage types (physical, fire, cold, lightning or chaos).

Besides the amount of damage, its type and source, 'hit packages' also contain certain mechanics and effects, such as:

  • critical strikes
  • ailments
  • penetration and resistance ignoring (i.e. Inevitable Judgement)
  • accuracy (for attacks only)
  • modifications to target's block and dodge chances (i.e. Block Chance Reduction SupportBlock Chance Reduction SupportSupport, Duration

On/when hit effects

"On Hit" effects are when the player hits the enemy, and "When Hit" is when the enemy hits the player. In general, most effects are applied after the hit is completed and damage is dealt, since magnitude of damage is used to compute the magnitude of effect. These include, but are not limited to:

  • gain temporary buffs (e.g. charges)
  • inflict debuffs (e.g. curses or bleed)
  • stun
  • knockback
  • gain life, mana or energy shield
  • culling strike
  • skill-specific effects (e.g. Arctic BreathArctic BreathSpell, Projectile, Duration, AoE, Cold

Conditional modifiers

There are modifiers that can only apply their effects when a certain condition is met. Modifiers that are conditional on properties of the target do not affect damage over time because only hits are able to check someone else properties.[3][4] For example, more Damage against Chilled Enemies from Hypothermia SupportHypothermia SupportCold, Support
