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.

Notes[]

  • The buff tooltip claims that damage is increased by 500% (i.e., multiplied by 6), which is incorrect.

Tips[]

  • 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.

History[]

  • Desktop 1.4.2.1: Changed Striking Moment's Buff text to reflect that it actually adds 400% damage (500% total) rather than adding 500%.
  • Desktop 1.3.4.1: Fixed tooltip incorrectly stating 300% increased damage, now incorrectly states 500%.
  • Mobile 1.4.0.5.0: Introduced with changes from Desktop 1.3.4.1 to Desktop 1.4.0.1.
