Secondary damage

From Path of Exile Wiki
(Redirected from Secondary)
Jump to: navigation, search

Secondary damage is a damage source that is neither a spell nor an attack and as such does not benefit from modifiers to those things. As secondary damage is not an attack or spell, it cannot be evaded, blocked, spell blocked, dodged or spell dodged.[1] Secondary damage still benefits from all modifiers where applicable, some examples being cast speed, elemental damage, and area of effect modifiers.
