Spectral Blade is an Arcane spell used by Wizards in Diablo III.


Spectral Blade hits a short, but broad arc before the Wizard, approximately 160 degree wide and 15 yards long. All enemies in that area are hit for Arcane damage. It counts as a Signature spell and therefore costs no Arcane Power. It is considered a melee skill, and is highly valued by melee-build Wizards.


  • Flame Blades: damage type turns to Fire. Each enemy hit also increases damage of Fire spells by 1% for 5 seconds, stacking up to 30 times, but not renewed.
  • Siphoning Blade: each enemy hit awards 2 Arcane Power.
  • Thrown Blade: damage type changes to Lightning, and increases damage to 231% and range to 20 yards.
  • Barrier Blades: each cast covers Wizard with a damage-absorbing shield (absorbs 4% of maximum Life in damage), stacking infinitely but not renewed (internal cooldown depends on attack speed). This shield is granted even if no enemy has been hit.
