Hexblast is a spell that deals chaos damage to a single enemy. If the target has a hex curse on it, it deals area of effect damage around the target. On hit, the spell removes the hex curse with the shortest remaining duration from each target hit. Hexblast removes the hex after dealing damage, and thus benefits from the effects of the removed curse.

Skill functions and interactions

Area component: By default, Hexblast only deals a vertical laser-like beam to a single target. This damage is not area damage. However, if the targeted enemy has a hex on them (even if they are unaffected), the hit will also deal damage in an area doing area damage around the target. The targeted enemy cannot be hit by the area damage as they are already hit bit the single-target hit. Concentrated Effect SupportConcentrated Effect SupportSupport, AoE

will lessen the area of the AOE and increase the area damage, but has no impact on single-target DPS.

  • Hexblast cannot be cast or triggered without a target. This prevents accidentally casting the skill during immunity phases or before a boss spawns.
  • Hexblast has forgiving targeting, and will attempt to prioritize targets with a hex over uncursed targets. Clicking the ground near a target will cause the single-target beam to lock onto the enemy.

Hex interactions: Hexblast deals more damage with hits and ailments against hexed enemies. The method in which the target is cursed does not matter. For example, they can be applied by curse on hit modifiers, Blasphemy SupportBlasphemy SupportSupport, Hex, Aura

    to contribute to DPS for hits; this has no effect on damage over time.
    • While hit-based Hexblast only requires the enemy to be hexed before hitting the target for optimal DPS, Ignite/Poison Hexblast requires the player to apply/reapply hexes both before using the skill (to apply the 40% multiplier and AOE) and after (to reduce resistances for the persisting damage over time).
  • Hexblast does not interact with or remove marks. A target with a mark but no hexes will not cause the AOE.

Chaos Damage with Hits is Resisted by lowest Resistance instead: Chaos damage dealt by this skill is resisted by the lowest resistance on an enemy, including chaos resistance. This means that if the enemy's fire resistance is lower than cold, lightning, or chaos, it will be resisted by fire resistance instead of chaos resistance. Note that if chaos resistance is lowest, it will be resisted by chaos resistance as normal.

  • Lowest resistance is factored in after all enemy debuffs; this includes exposure and curses like Elemental WeaknessElemental WeaknessSpell, AoE, Duration, Curse, Hex

    .
  • Penetration is also applied in this calculation only to the lowest resistance; for example, if fire resistance is lowest, fire resistance penetration will further increase Hexblast's damage. Note that penetration will not change which resistance is considered the lowest; even if Hexblast could have infinite cold penetration, if fire resistance was the lowest, the cold penetration has no effect.
  • Being resisted by fire resistance does not mean that Hexblast deals fire damage, can be mitigated by modifiers to fire damage taken, or considered taken as fire.
  • This mod only applies to hits; damaging ailments (Ignite and Poison) are still resisted by fire resistance and chaos resistance respectively, unless the player equips a BlackflameBlackflame

All Damage can Ignite, Freeze, and Shock: this modifier allows all damage types dealt by Hexblast (not necessarily just chaos) to be able to contribute to Ignite, Freeze, and Shock. This does not affect other ailments like Chill, and does not grant any #% chance to actually inflict the ailment. Chance to inflict ailments must be obtained elsewhere, or applied via a critical strike.

This Spell's Cast Time is added to its Cooldown if Triggered: The spell's tooltip cast time is added to cooldowns if triggered; this cooldown can be reduced through both cooldown recovery rate and increased/more cast speed.

) bypasses Hexblast's slow cast speed and cooldown. Mines are preferable to traps as traps trigger simultaneously and curse on hit is removed when traps expire, preventing Hexblast from gaining its AOE component and damage reliably.[6]

  • Because of the inability for Hexblast to cast without a valid target, this greatly improves the ability to set up damage on bosses by pre-stacking mines without accidentally triggering them.
  • The combination of mines auto-targeting enemies and Hexblast having a smart targeting system reduces the need to aim precisely and ensures no uses of the skill are wasted.
