Spectral Shield Throw is an attack skill performed with a shield. The user throws a single shield projectile forward, which releases secondary shard projectiles in random directions when it hits an enemy or terrain. Unlike most attack skills, Spectral Shield Throw deals offhand damage with a shield.

Mechanics and interactions

Spectral Shield Throw has two types of projectiles: shields and shards. Using the skill causes the player to throw one shield projectile forward. Every time it collides with an enemy or terrain, it produces a set of secondary shard projectiles.

Projectile modifiers

  • Additional projectiles do not apply to the shield projectile, only to shard projectiles.
  • Projectile speed modifiers will apply to both shield and shard projectiles. Because the shards have a limited lifetime, increasing projectile speed will allow them to travel farther, similar to Ethereal KnivesEthereal KnivesSpell, Projectile, Physical

  • The shield projectile can Split, Fork, Chain, and Return, but not Pierce.

  • Secondary shard projectiles can Pierce or Chain, but cannot Split, Fork, or Return.

Damage modifiers

Spectral Shield Throw gains base damage from the skill gem, and additional added damage depending on stats on the equipped shield. The Added Physical Damage per 15 Armour or Evasion Rating on Shield modifier checks local values on the shield; it is unaffected by #% increased Defences from Equipped Shield.

The skill does not use local stats on the main hand weapon, and it is not an unarmed attack if the main hand is empty.[1] It only deals offhand damage, which is favorable for e.g. Sinistral GlovesSinistral GlovesEvasion: (236-271)Requires Level 70, 101 Dex25% reduced Attack Damage with Main Hand
(40-50)% increased Attack Damage with Off Hand

    : Unlike the original skill, this transfigured version deals cold damage instead of physical at a greater value and gains added cold damage based on the shield's evasion rating (but not armour rating). The skill does not inherently chain, but the projectile fires more shards and the shards deal more damage.
