NameShow Full Descriptions
Controlled Destruction SupportGrants more spell damage to Ethereal Knives but reduces critical strike chance. The more spell damage provided by this support allows a direct and stable increase in damage not contingent on critical strikes.
Faster Casting SupportIncreases the cast speed of Ethereal Knives, allowing it to be used more frequently.
Faster Projectiles SupportIncreasing the projectile speed of Ethereal Knives increases how far the projectiles can travel. When paired with the Pierce support, Faster Projectiles will allow your projectiles to travel deeply through packs of mobs.
Physical to Lightning SupportConverts 50% of Ethereal Knives' physical damage to lightning damage, as well as providing extra lightning damage based on your physical damage.
Pierce SupportAllows projectiles from Ethereal Knives to travel through extra numbers of enemies, ensuring that more enemies in a pack will be hit by the projectiles.
Spell Echo SupportRepeats Ethereal Knives an additional time while also greatly increasing the cast speed.
