Scattering Blast is a rune effect in Cleave, a Fury-generating Barbarian skill.

This rune effect triggers on critical hits, when it knockbacks enemies 9 yards and inflicts damage where they land.

Post-Release Changes[edit]

Cleave was buffed in the v1.0.4 patch, increasing the skill's damage and improving all of the rune effects in the process. Several rune effects were boosted as well, though Scattering Blat was not amongst them. [1]

  • Cleave changes in v1.0.4:
    • Weapon damage increased from 120% to 140%
