Maiming Strike is an Acolyte Melee mod that increases the chance of a critical hit on slide attacks.


Rank Critical chance Cost
0 +15% 2
1 +30% 3
2 +45% 4
3 +60% 5
4 +75% 6
5 +90% 7


  • Critical bonus is a flat additive and is applied after other critical chance mods, but before Mod TT 20pxBlood Rush.
    • Without mods, for example, the StalkerMios Lacera with a base critical chance of 2.5% would increase to 92.5% during a slide attack.
    • With mods, for example, a Galatine o Galatine with a max rank Maiming Strike, Mod TT 20pxTrue Steel, and Blood Rush at a 3.0x combo multiplier will have a
      [10% × (1 + 60%) + 90%] × (1 + 165% × 3.0) critical chance on slide attacks.
  • Critical bonus stacks additively with ArcaneAvenger64x Arcane Avenger and Mod TT 20pxCat's Eye.
  • Does not affect Exalted Weapons.


  • The +90% critical chance provided by Maiming Strike is multiplied by Mod TT 20pxBlood Rush and the set mod effect of Gladiator Mods which leads to very high critical chances on slide attacks. See the full equation for details.
  • Combining with Mod TT 20pxBerserker on any melee weapon allows players to easily generate attack speed, with a stronger effect than Mod TT 20pxFury, for the same cost.
