Skill functions and interactions

Melee Splash does not work with melee skills that already have an area of effect, such as Ground Slam and Cleave. Infernal Blow has the "AoE" gem tag for its explosion effect, but the primary hit is still single-target and will benefit from Melee Splash. Whirling Blades, although being a melee skill and not having an AoE, is not compatible with Melee Splash.

Skills supported by Melee Splash do not receive the AoE gem tag.

Modifiers to AoE (e.g. Area of Effect radius and Area Damage) will apply to the AoE component of Melee Splash. However, damage on target initially struck does not count as an AoE and will not be affected by relevant bonuses, using splash effectively grants a normal hit on the primary target plus a donut-shaped AoE around it.

The area of effect created by Melee Splash has a base radius of 14 units.

Melee Splash will also "spread" effects, for example, if your initial hit is a knockback to the target you hit with a single-target skill, nearby enemies within the radius of Melee Splash will also get knocked back. Same works with stuns as well. This is very effective with Heavy Strike as it is a guaranteed knockback per hit.

Item acquisition

Melee Splash Support can drop anywhere. Drop level: 8.
