Blade Shield is an Assassin Skill in Diablo II.


  • Gives synergy to: None
  • Receives synergy from: None


Useful to Assassins that may find themselves in combat, which are usually Martial Artists. It gives you a Damage Shield more or less, attacking anyone that strikes you. It scales with weapon damage, which makes it even more useful for Martial Artists as they would have higher weapon damage output than Trappers. Note that dealing damage with Blade Shield can deplete the weapon durability, as with normal strikes. There is no limit on how often a hit can be delivered.

This will not trigger "On Striking" spells. It will however, trigger On Attack spells.


This contrivance releases several small razors and uses magnetic forces to set them spinning about the Assassin, inflicting grievous wounds on any foe who approaches her too closely.
