Blazing Salvo Build Guide

Blazing Salvo releases a torrent of fiery mortars that can hit enemies as they fly and land in rapid succession, with each mortar causing an explosion. When targeting up close, the explosions can hit a target multiple times, while targeting at range causes them to spread out and have a higher explosion radius, giving you a wide damage spread.

Blazing Salvo Build

The skill rewards clever positioning, making it well suited to casting by hand or by being careful about placement of totems, traps and mines.

Support Gems

  • Greater Multiple Projectiles Support Greater Multiple Projectiles Support. It results in more damage up close and more reliable area spread.
  • Fork Support Fork Support or Awakened Fork Support Awakened Fork Support. Fork lets the mortars split into two if they hit enemies, with each exploding separately.
  • Intensify Support Intensify Support. It causes the supported spell to deal more area damage and have an increased area of effect while lessening the area of effect with consecutive casts.

Blazing Salvo + Void Sphere

Combine the skill with Void Sphere to draw enemies in for a concentrated salvo.

Blazing Salvo + Flame Wall

Use Flame Wall to add fire damage to Blazing Salvo while applying the Flame Wall’s burning effect to enemies hit.
