Wind Striker Aspect (How to Get, Location & Effects): Diablo 4

Movement Speed can be a huge factor when it comes to surviving or grinding as you get to move around quickly and save time from slowly getting to where you need to go. (In dungeons)

Sometimes being fast on your feet can save you from getting killed as well as you can quickly relocate and get out of danger to position yourself in battle.

The Wind Striker Aspect can provide you with a slight boost of Movement Speed and all you need to do is land a Critical Strike.

Wind Striker Aspect Effects (Movement Speed Aspect)

With the Wind Striker Aspect, you get a boost of Movement Speed to boost for 1 second that can stack up to 6 seconds in total.

This Aspect triggers whenever you deal with a Critical Strike, which becomes more frequent if your chance is higher or at higher levels.

This will make it easier for you to get around, clear out enemies, and grind your way through dungeons quickly to save time and farm more.

The Wind Striker Aspect will be unlocked after you have completed the Shivta Ruins, which can be found in the Amber Sands to the east of the Altar of Ruin. (Kehjistan)

If you have not unlocked the Altar of Ruin, you can reach it by heading west from Jirandai or northeast from the Iron Wolve Encampment.

How To Get Wind Striker Aspect? (Shivta Ruins Walkthrough)Killing the Seething Hivemaster in the Shivta Ruins

The Shivta Ruins puts you on the hunt for the Seething Hivemaster, who you can reach once you make your way from the Raided Halls to the Shambles of Vermin.

  • Return the Bloodstone to the Pedestal (2)
  • Travel to the Shambles of Vermin
  • Defeat the Seething Hivemaster

After you have brought both of the Bloodstones to their Pedestals, you will be able to enter the Shamble of Vermin where the Seething Hivemaster is located.

You will need to defeat the Seething Hivemaster to unlock the Wind Striker Aspect, which will then be available in your Codex for imprinting.


Any class can make use of the Wind Striker Aspect, allowing you to alter your build with additional Movement Speed as long as you can land Critical Strikes.

This becomes more useful at higher levels since the percentage of Movement Speed becomes greater and you can quickly complete dungeons.

One of the best things of all is that it stacks and it will seem to have an infinite amount of time if you tend to always land Critical Strikes.
