Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Due to its nature of dealing critical hits when under the effect of a movement-speed buff, the Affix "Increases your movement speed after the death of an enemy for 5 seconds" synergises quite well with Swift Sword, as it will require the death of a single enemy to substantially increase its effectiveness. Also, the Velocity mutation will be useful in combination with this weapon.
