Hexblast is a spell gem.
Deals chaos damage to a single enemy, dealing more damage if they are Hexed, then removes the Hex with the highest Doom. If a Hex was removed this way, also deals area damage to other enemies around the target, boosting damage and removing Hexes from those enemies in the same way.

Hexblast has had its skill mechanics and damage adjusted to account for the loss of Doom's scaling. Broadly speaking, it does less damage at the very top end of gameplay but getting it to a fairly decent level of damage is easier than before. It now removes a Hex with the lowest remaining duration from an enemy after damaging. Its damage is also more consistent because you no longer need to wait for Doom to build up.
Hexblast no longer has any Doom related stats. It now has a cast time of 1 second (previously 0.6), and a Mana cost of 16 at gem level 1 (previously 10), scaling up to 30 at gem level 20 (previously 20). It now deals 111 to 166 Chaos Damage at gem level 1 (previously 102 to 153), scaling up to 1514 to 2271 at gem level 20 (previously 1397 to 2096). It now has "100% more Damage with Hits if Enemy is Hexed", "40% more Damage with Ailments if Enemy is Hexed", "This Spell's Cast Time is added to its Cooldown if Triggered", and "Removes a Hex after Damaging." It also now has 340% Effectiveness of Added Damage (previously 310%).

Hexblast calls down a beam of chaos damage on the target. It is a new skill gem in PoE Heist 3.12. If the target is cursed with a hex, it consumes that hex and causes a shockwave around that enemy. Similar to Impending Doom, the more Doom the supported hex built up, the greater damage the skill deals.
Although Hexblast is a chaos damage spell, it has some elemental-themed properties that make it special. For one, the damage it deals has the ability to ignite, shock or freeze. Secondly, it deals damage based on the lowest resistance the enemy has! For example, this lets you use an offensive hex such as Flammability and still make use of the fire resistance reduction that it provides.

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 highest amount of doom from each target hit, and deals more damage based on how much doom the curse had. Hexblast removes the hex after dealing damage, and thus benefits from the effects of the removed curse.
While the spell deals chaos damage, the damage is resisted by the lowest resistance the target has, and the spell can apply all 3 elemental ailments, provided the caster either critically strikes, or has some chance to apply those ailments. Ailments are resisted by their respective resistance (e.g. fire for ignite) and do not benefit from Hexblast's "resisted by lowest resistance" effect, which only applies to chaos hits. This also means that non-chaos damage added to Hexblast will not benefit from this effect.
Hexblast can drop anywhere. Drop level: 28.
