Item class: Skill Gem

Hexblast of Contradiction 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.

Changes from default version

Unlike the original skill, this transfigured version has a higher critical strike chance, higher bonus to hit damage against hexed targets, and is resisted by the highest resistance rather than the lowest. Because of this, reducing resistances through curses and exposure is not an effective strategy. Instead, it is better to use mechanics that invert or ignore resistances:

Skill functions and interactions

Main page: Hexblast
  • Hits have 25% chance to treat Enemy Monster Elemental Resistance values as inverted from Elemental Mastery
  • Inquisitor's Inevitable Judgement will remove resistances from being calculated in the damage formula, but does not affect which resistance is highest.

Alternatively, another method is to stack extremely large amounts of penetration, e.g. via Crystallised OmniscienceCrystallised Omniscience
Onyx Amulet
Requires Level 61+(10-16) to all AttributesModifiers to Attributes instead apply to Omniscience
+1% to all Elemental Resistances per 15 Omniscience
Penetrate 1% Elemental Resistances per 15 Omniscience
Attribute Requirements can be satisfied by (15-25)% of Omniscience
That winter, scorched refugees emerged from the shrine,
