Description[edit | edit source]

This invocation charges your melee attack with the power of an eldritch blast. If you successfully hit with your melee attack, the target is affected as if struck by your eldritch blast. This damage is in addition to any weapon damage that you deal with your attack, although the eldritch blast effect will NOT trigger if no damage is caused by the weapon itself. Doing elemental damage or some other bonus damage effect from the weapon is enough though to trigger the blast. This invocation lasts until you successfully hit with your melee attack.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Before the patch 1.23 the eldritch blast effect used to trigger even if no damage was caused by the weapon itself.
