Skill Gem Reveal: Blade Flurry

Assassin with Toxic Delivery ascendancy?

+ Hatred = Freeze/Chill + Maim!

Does one handed Swords which restricts use of second hand will work?

Also please note that there can be a bug which allows usage of 2 weapons (even if one of them can't be used with skill)!

^ This is awesome. I love the consistency.

I think I'm more immediately interested in Scorching Ray because it's more flashy and feels more exotic for a skill in Path of Exile... maybe that's just the Blade Vortex meta talking, though? But I'll definitely be trying out this skill some time next year - it seems really cool.
so its an melee spell... interesting.
Skill looks interesting but honestly I am kind of dissapointed it's just another ranged aoe attack spell. :( You don't even swing with weapons. Only purpose for weapons is to be stat stick. :( Also there are very few skills these days which doesn't need to scale area of effect. :(

What this game desperately needs are new or improved melee skills which feels like melee skills! You know slashing or stabbing with weapons while moving through the horde of enemies. I didn't saw new attack animation since game was released. Don't you think it's already time to push your limits?

make claws great... for once*
I dunno :/
When I watched video demonstration with low cast speed and saw those green-black shadow like projections at close, I though "Nice idea, with those projections skill looks cool". Then video showed this skill with high cast speed with usual camera position and all I saw - many green explosions U_U Really, somewhat disappointing.

Well having new skill gem is nice anyway, but I hope you, GGG, will take into consideration things we talk about in suggestion forum, like here, for example -> Dunno, I have a feeling that those human-like projections won't be seen at high speed and that part of your work, which I liked the most, will be simply unnoticed/wasted.

Though you can improve animation until this skill is released by changing its behavior slightly. You press and hold this skill and that human-like projection flies toward mobs as it does already, BUT it starts to "dance" there instead of continued release of those projections. By "dance" I mean projection doesn't disappear (as long as you hold button), but instead it darts from one mob to another. You release button - projection disappears. You start to hold it again - projection flies away and starts to "dance" again.
The skill itself looks quite cool. The animation though is pretty meh, but i suppose it's cause he is "channelling" it. Looks interesting though.
Is it attack or spell?

Some info about the gem will be nice :D

It looks like a spell, but the use of 1h weapons makes it an attack?

is it only AOE or also projectile?

plz GGG, give us more info, TY

But I do feel that they will also add a line that it can not be used with multistrike. Why you may ask? because they said it will have a build in 50% increase attack speed modifier build it.

ye just read over it again and slash indicates more melee than proj.
Even better with Ci lel. anoth 90+%more dmg

Yeah, it won't be usable with multistrike for sure because channeled skills cannot be repeated.

Also, it channels at a percentage of your attack speed so it isn't a spell in any way, it won't use cast speed or whatnot.
