Strengthen your defense, greatly reducing damage taken from hits for a short duration. Steelskin is a Guard utility skill that blocks an amount of damage. Once depleted, the damage will go through to you. Guard skills do not benefit much from support gems, and Steelskin can be used well without supports.

Increased Duration SupportAllow Steelskin's bonus to last longer, to defend against more hits from enemies. A simple but valuable way to improve defense.
Cast when Damage Taken SupportAutomatically cast Steelskin after taking damage. This is valuable for defending against surprise attacks. Steelskin can not be cast manually with this gem, and cannot be used to defend against a monster about to hit you. It's important to have another way to defend against monsters if you use this gem.
