Splitting Steel is a new low level skill that uses the shard mechanic. Each use fires a single shard that explodes into additional projectiles when it hits an enemy or reaches the targeted location, creating smaller shards that fly towards nearby enemies before detonating in smaller explosions. The skill has some added physical damage and a chance to impale, something that wasn't previously accessible at such low levels.
Changes have been made to the Split mechanic that means Splitting now occurs before other projectile behaviours; This means that Fork, Pierce or Chain would take place after Split has generated all of the additional projectiles, opening up all sorts of interesting ways to take advantage of these mechanics.

The new steel skill is splitting steel. Once you call shards, you consume a shard to fire a single projectile that explodes on impact, creating smaller projectiles that then hit any surrounding enemies. It’s fun to note that these smaller impacts will also generate explosions, albeit smaller ones.
