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.

Spectral Shield Throw is an attack skill. The user tosses their shield at an enemy. On impact, it deals physical damage to the enemy and releases shards that deals damage to nearby enemies. Unlike most attack skills, Spectral Shield Throw uses your shield's stats to calculate damage.

Skill functions and interactions

  • Projectile Modifiers: The initial projectile from Spectral Shield Throw can be modified to chain and fork, but not to have additional projectiles or pierce. Support gems that add these effects will have their appropriate damage modifiers applied to all part of Spectral Shield Throw's damage.
  • Shards: The shield will only explode into shards after it is done forking and chaining. The shards can pierce.
  • Projectile Speed: Increased projectile speed will increase the velocity of the initial shield throw. Similarly to Ethereal KnivesEthereal KnivesSpell, Projectile, Physical

    , the distance the shards travel is affected by projectile speed.
  • Increased Defenses from Equipped Shield Passives: Despite raising the defenses of the equipped shield when taking passives of this nature, these passives do not raise the intrinsic values present on your shield and thus do NOT increase the damage of Spectral Shield Throw.
  • Totems: Spectral Shield Throw cannot be supported by Ranged Attack Totem SupportRanged Attack Totem SupportBow, Projectile, Support, Totem
