Striking Moment is a buff granted when the Open / Activate is pressed when holding the Brand of the Inferno or the Sergeant United Shield to successfully block an enemy attack with a shield accessory equipped, right before damage is taken. Striking an enemy with a melee weapon within 5 seconds of the block deals five times the usual damage, after which the buff will be removed. This bonus can be used with any melee weapon.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • When using the Sergeant United Shield, a shield accessory is not required to be able to block, as long as the shield isn't being thrown.
  • The buff tooltip is mathematically incorrect. The code states that your damage is multiplied by 5, which would be a 400% increase. The tooltip, however, claims that your damage is increased by 500% (i.e., multiplied by 6).

History[edit | edit source]

  • Desktop 1.3.4.1: Fixed tooltip incorrectly stating 300% increased damage, now incorrectly states 500%.
