Impale
Debuff
Impale status icon.png
You're impaled by a hit, and will take a portion of that reflected hit damage when you are hit again.

Impale is a debuff that deals additional physical damage to the affected target each time it is hit.

Mechanics

When a hit applies impale to a target, 10% of that hit's physical damage is recorded before any damage mitigation is applied. Impale deals the recorded damage to that target each time it is hit. Impale does not have a limited duration; it remains in effect until the maximum number of hits is reached. By default, impale lasts for five hits. A target may have multiple impale effects on it at once, all of which deal damage to that target each time it is hit.[1]

The damage dealt by impale is considered reflected damage. The source of the reflected damage is the impale debuff; there is no interaction with effects that pertain to damage you reflect, as seen on Crown of the Pale KingCrown of the Pale King
