Secondary damage

From Path of Exile Wiki

This page is a stub. You can help Path of Exile Wiki by expanding it.

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.

Skill gems

On a skill gem, the Cast keyword usually indicates that a skill deals all or part secondary damage but there are a few other gems that deals secondary damage without the Cast tag. The following skill gems deal secondary damage:
