Sweep skill screenshot.jpg

Sometimes a good blade just isn't enough. With a mighty swing, a player wielding a staff, two-handed axe, two-handed sword, or mace smashes the skulls of many enemies surrounding them. The furious blow breaks armor and bone alike, even knocking foes back a substantial distance.

Description on the official Path of Exile website [1]

Sweep is an melee attack that deals damage to enemies in a full 360-degree circle area around the player, and knocks some of them back. Requires a two-handed melee weapon.
