Skill functions and interactions

  • Accuracy: Sunder only needs to pass an evasion check to cause a shockwave on a specific enemy – the shockwave will hit all enemies in its range, regardless of evasion.
  • Area of Effect: Increases to area of effect will increase both the area of the wave and that of the shockwave created. Note however that only the wave's width is modified. The length of the wave is either constant or the impact of aoe is much smaller.

Item acquisition

Sunder can drop anywhere. Drop level: 12.

Sunder 3.11 Build Guide

As part of GGG’s effort to encourage slower and heavier-hitting Slams, Sunder Sunder has become a much wider and longer but slower cascade. Using Sunder Sunder while one cascade is still in motion will cause the existing cascade to end prematurely. These cascades will always travel a minimum length, so you can still use Sunder Sunder effectively with Multistrike and fast hitting weapons when close to enemies.

It still releases Shockwaves which can overlap when they hit enemies. Leveling the gem no longer scales its radius but instead scales its Area of Effect. Overall it now provides a better Area of Effect for slower hitting weapons.
