Poison: As Blade Vortex deals physical damage, it can easily scale poison damage.

Visual effect: Blade vortex's visual effect does not scale with Area of effect modifiers. Instead, to give a rough indication of radius, there are several versions of the knife effect, each rotating at a different radius. The skill will always try to have one knife using the largest-radius effect that's not larger than the actual radius of the skill, but that skill results in discrete visual changes where you need to reach a certain threshold before the next wider effect can be used. The full radius is always used mechanically.[2]

Calculating DPS

Blade Vortex's in-game tooltip DPS gives the average damage of one hit from one Blade Vortex instance, multiplied by casts per second. This value is misleading primarily because Blade Vortex can hit more than once over its duration, thus not cast speed must be used, but hits per second (rounds per second, spin rate), over the duration of the stacks.

Math and tables

Base spin rate of Blade Vortex is 600 ms. Blade Vortex hit more frequently with more stacks it has. As gem says: 35% increased Hit Rate for each blade. So spin time is calculated as

Assuming spin rate increases for 35% for each stack, we have the following data:

Stacks Hit Rate (ms) Hits Per Second
0 600 1.667
1 444 2.250
2 353 2.833
3 293 3.417
4 250 4.000
5 218 4.583
6 194 5.167
7 174 5.750
8 158 6.333
9 145 6.917
10 133 7.500

Each stack of Blade Vortex increases hit damage with the following formula:

Where is per-stack damage increase factor.

Then we need just multiply hits per second with hit damage.

Assuming 35% more damage per stack, then using base hit damage as 1, we would expect the following per-hit damage increases:

Stacks Damage Per Hit Effective DPS Multiplier
0 1.00 1.667
1 1.35 3.04
2 1.70 4.82
3 2.05 7.00
4 2.40 9.60
5 2.75 12.60
6 3.10 16.02
7 3.45 19.84
8 3.80 24.07
9 4.15 28.70
10 4.50 33.75

  • Blade Vortex has been refactored. Instead of separate hits for each active blade, the blades now increase the frequency at which all enemies in the radius take damage, and the amount of damage they take. The skill now has a base hit frequency of 600ms and has 10% increased hit rate per active blade. Its damage has been reduced by 30% at all levels and it deals 30% more damage per active blade.
2.4.0
  • Blade Vortex now has a stack limit of 20 (down from 50). It now deals 63% more damage at level 20.
2.2.0
  • The frequency with which Blade Vortex's can repeatedly hit the same enemy has been halved, but its damage and damage effectiveness have been doubled.
2.1.1b
  • Extra Gore now doesn't trigger every time Blade Vortex hits.
  • Fixed a bug where some of the visual effects on Blade Vortex weren't being updated when swapping in and out support gems which modified the area of effect.
  • Fixed a bug where some of the effects of Blade Vortex weren't finishing their animations smoothly.
2.1.0
  • Added to the game.
