The player gains 5% critical strike chance, and all critical strikes will inflict Status Bleeding.png Bleed on enemies. Additionally, any enemy that dies while bleeding will explode, inflicting 400% (+400% per stack) damage plus 15% (+15% per stack) of its maximum health to nearby enemies within 16m.


  • Correction: The in-game description does not specify the +5% critical strike chance.
  • The Bleed applied by the Shatterspleen is separate from the Bleed inflicted by theTri-Tip Dagger.png Tri-Tip DaggerBgCommon.pngTri-Tip Dagger.pngChance to bleed enemies on hit.

> This will be my third attempt at a dissection of an Imp organ
> First attempt resulted in rupture
> Second attempt resulted in rupture
> Cutting into the outer layer produces copious amounts of fluid discharge
> As the fluid flows, the rest of the organ, inexplicably, swells
> Swelling will ultimately result in violent rupture
> Made use of the stemming tools on the BDC-3 to successfully proceed without incident
> Surprised to find sharp needle point objects (bones?) inside
> Timestamping for break
> Came back to leave some final notes
> Third attempt aborted after I injured my hand
> Eventually was able to stop my own bleeding. The organ seems to contain immense anticoagulant properties.
