A large portion of relevant modules/templates have now been switched to cargo. Various usages of SMW throughout the wiki need to be replaced by the new functions, in particular item tables. If some pages do not show up but contain no errors, please null-edit them. To see how you can help with the port check out Path_of_Exile_Wiki:To-do_list/SMW_migration (and leave a comment on the talk page if you have questions).

Iron Grip
Keystone Passive Skill

  • The increase to Physical Damage from Strength applies to Projectile Attacks as well as Melee Attacks
Legend tells of bows so powerful that only giants could draw them back.

Iron Grip is a keystone passive skill that applies the physical damage bonus from strength to projectile attacks as well as melee attacks.

Strength inherently grants 0.2% increased physical damage with melee weapons per point. Taking Iron Grip applies this bonus to attacks with ranged weapons as well.

Item modifier

These unique items have the Iron Grip modifier, which provides the same effect as this keystone. Taking the keystone in addition to equipping one of these items will impart no additional benefit.
