Aspect of the Cat - Path of Exile

Aspect of the Cat is an aspect skill. It grants two alternating buffs, each with their own duration:

  1. Cat’s Stealth increases the character’s stealth, gives a chance to avoid all damage from hits, and increases critical strike chance.
  2. Cat’s Agility increases attack and cast speed.

By default, their durations are 4 and 6 seconds respectively. The game will track the time remaining for each buff and resume counting upon reactivation (for example, you cannot rapidly toggle the skill, remove/re-equip the gem, or cycle equipment to spend more time in one buff than allotted).
