Key Passives

  • Momentum - A crucial passive that grants stacks whenever you hit a stunned, dazed, or frozen enemy or attack an enemy from behind.
  • Trap Mastery - This passive improves Critical Strike chance against vulnerable and crowd-controlled enemies whenever Poison Trap activates.
  • Adrenaline Rush - Gain Haste when above 50 energy and Attack Speed when below 50 energy.
  • Concussive - Knock down or knock back enemies with Enhanced Poison Trap to gain additional Critical Strike chance against them.


Early Aspect Setup (Amulet and Rings)

Aspect Location Effect
Blade Dancers Aspect Amulet Enhances Twisting Blades' damage based on the orbit distance.
Ravenous Aspect One Ring Increases energy regeneration upon killing vulnerable enemies.
Edge Masters Aspect Other Ring or Glove Boosts damage based on available primary resource (energy).


Talent Tree

Allocate your talent points efficiently to maximize your damage and survivability. Start with Puncture and Twisting Blades, then move into the Dash and Poison Trap tree.

  • Focus on Twisting Blades until you unlock the first tier of talents.
  • Unlock the next tier, picking up Poison Trap and Dark Shroud.
  • Move on to the next tier and select Shadow Imbuement.
  • Get Shadow Crash for improved energy generation.
  • Proceed to the final tier and pick up the Momentum passive.


Paragon Points

  • Prime: Maxed for dexterity and reduced damage when wielding a melee weapon.
  • Combat: Maxed for Critical Strike Damage to all skills.
  • Artifice: Invest enough points to reach Exploit Weakness and pick up intelligence along the way.
  • Exploit Weakness: Maxed for a significant damage increase against vulnerable enemies.
  • Unassailable: Invest some points for damage reduction.


Aspect and Heart Selection

  • Blade Dancers Aspect - This aspect is vital for Twisting Blades builds. It makes your blades orbit around you, dealing increased damage based on their return distance. Socket it into your amulet for maximum efficiency.
  • Ravenous Heart - This heart improves your energy regeneration as you kill vulnerable enemies.
  • Edge Masters Heart - Boost your damage based on your available primary resource, making it especially powerful when you have full energy.
  • Malignant Hearts - Prioritize Vile Apothecary if you can get it since it significantly boosts your damage with imbuements. If it's not available yet, consider Malignant Pact, which cycles through bonuses every 20 kills, granting attack speed on Vicious, energy cost restoration on Devious, and a barrier on Brutal.
  • Clip Shot Heart - This heart adds a chance to slow or knock back enemies through Cutthroat skills, synergizing well with Momentum.
  • Trickery Heart - A defensive focus heart that leaves behind Shadow decoy traps taunting enemies when you use Subterfuge skills.



  • Amulet: Socket Blade Dancers Aspect.
  • Rings: Socket Ravenous Heart and Edge Masters Heart.
  • Gloves: Consider Trickery Heart or other utility hearts.
  • Affixes: Aim for crit strike chance, crit strike damage, vulnerable damage, and lucky hit chance.


Malignant Hearts (Raffle Hearts)

  • Vile Apothecary (Ideal, but only drops in World Tier 4): 5-15% chance to apply all imbuement effects at 40-50% potency.
  • Malignant Packed (Universal, available earlier): Cycling malignant bonuses and significant attack speed increase and resource restoration on kills.


Other Heart Options (before Vile Apothecary)

  • Clip Shot: Provides a chance to slow and knock back enemies on Cutthroat skills.
  • Trickery: Creates a Shadow decoy trap on using subterfuge skills that taunts enemies.
  • Tempting Fate: Increases Critical Strike Damage but reduces non-critical damage (test its effectiveness).
  • Picana: Provides some Lightning-based AOE damage.



With the Twisting Blades Build, you'll have excellent damage, mobility, and crowd control, making it a perfect choice for leveling during Season 1 in Diablo 4. Prioritize getting the Blade Dancers Aspect, Ravenous Heart, and Edge Masters Heart to boost your efficiency. As you progress, aim for the Vile Apothecary Heart for even more power.
