This trait became the passive skill Weak Spot when all traits were removed from the game prior to the press event of July 2011. This is archived for future curiosity and reference. This page is not to be updated with current info; see the skills page for current skill information.

Weak Spot is a trait possessed by the Barbarian and Monk. It enables them to increase their critical strike damage.

Weak Spot Properties[edit]

Weak Spot

  • Clvl Req:
    • Barbarian: 51
    • Monk: 35
  • Description: Increases critical strike damage.
  • Max points: 1 Barb, 3 Monk*
    • Rank One: Unknown.
    • Rank Two: Unknown.
    • Rank Three: Unknown.
  • Lore: Not yet known.

* The Barbarian can only place one point into this trait, while the Monk can add up to three.

The amount of critical hit damage increase provided to the Barbarian and Monk from this isn't known. It's possible that the Barbarian might get more from one point than the Monk does. Alternatively, if they get the same value from their points (say 20/40/60%), the logic would seem to be that because the Barbarian is so powerful and damage-dealing, more than one point would be overpowered for him.


This is a Barbarian and Monk trait. It will likely be added to the Demon Hunter traits as character development continues, since the three direct damage classes tend to share access to like, combat-themed traits.


Other traits and skills that increased the damage, and especially the chances, of critical hits would obviously pair very well with this one.
