The Rogue class in Diablo 4 has plenty of different build options. Whether players want to strike from the shadows or be a full-frontal critical strike machine, they will need plenty of Legendary Aspects to aid them along their journey. One of the more popular Aspects that Rogues have equipped onto their gear in the early life of Diablo 4 is the Aspect of Encircling Blades.

The Aspect of Encircling Blades has the following effect: “Flurry damages enemies in a circle around you and deals [8-15]%[x] increased damage.” It can be equipped on 1H weapons, 2H weapons (100% increased power), Gloves, Amulets (50% increased power), and Rings.

Luckily, the Aspect of Encircling Blades is acquired through two different methods, giving players some options. The first and simplest way to go about getting the Aspect is to complete the Forsaken Quarry dungeon. Completing this dungeon will add the Aspect of Encircling Blades to your Codex of Power.

The Forsake Quarry dungeon is located just north of Kyovashad in the region of Fractured Peaks. It’s one of the first dungeons that you can visit, so you can have this Aspect very early on in Diablo 4.

The second way to acquire the Aspect is to find a random piece of legendary gear with it already equipped. If you manage to find a gear piece with the Aspect of Encircling Blades, then you can either equip that gear or bring it to The Occultist and extract the Aspect. This will destroy the gear and place the Aspect in your inventory, where you can imprint it onto a new piece of gear.

You can also imprint the Aspect onto gear using it from the Codex of Power. Both ways will cost gold and materials. However, using the Aspect from the Codex of Power will make it a little weaker than using it from your inventory. That’s everything you need to know about acquiring and using the Aspect of Encircling Blades in Diablo 4.
