Active Skill GemDescription
Elemental HitEach attack with this skill will choose an element at random, and will only be able to deal damage of that element. If the attack hits an enemy, it will also deal damage in an area around them, with the radius being larger if that enemy is suffering from an ailment of the chosen element. It will avoid choosing the same element twice in a row.
FrenzyPerforms an attack that gives the character a frenzy charge if it hits. Frenzy charges increase your attack speed.
Caustic ArrowFires an arrow which deals chaos damage in an area on impact, and spreads caustic ground. Enemies standing on the caustic ground take chaos damage over time.
Ice ShotFires an arrow that converts some physical damage to cold on its target and converts all physical damage to cold in a cone behind that target.
Split ArrowFires multiple arrows at different targets.
Explosive ArrowFires an arrow which will stick into an enemy or wall, and then explode, dealing area damage around it, either after a duration or when the maximum number of arrows stuck to that target is reached. If an enemy has multiple Explosive Arrows stuck in them, the first one to explode will consume the others, adding their damage to its explosion.
Rain of ArrowsFires multiple arrows into the air, to land in sequence after a delay, starting at the targeted location and spreading outwards in all directions. Each arrow deals damage in an area around it. Half of the arrows will land directly on targets if there are targets in their range.
Power SiphonFires your wand to unleash projectiles that fire toward enemies in front of you or to your sides, dealing increased damage and granting you a power charge if an enemy is killed by, or soon after, the hit.
PuncturePunctures enemies, causing a bleeding debuff, which will be affected by modifiers to skill duration. Puncture works with bows, daggers, claws or swords.
Lightning ArrowFires a charged arrow at the target, causing them to be struck by a bolt of lightning which damages nearby enemies.
Burning ArrowFires a burning arrow that deals fire damage and has a chance to ignite.
BarrageAfter a short preparation time, you attack repeatedly with a ranged weapon. These attacks have a small randomised spread. Only works with Bows and Wands.
Vaal Burning ArrowFires an arrow that explodes, dealing fire damage to its target and other nearby enemies, with an increased chance of igniting them.
Vaal Power SiphonFires your wand simultaneously at all nearby enemies, culling those close to death and granting you a power charge for each. Cannot be supported by Volley.
Vaal Rain of ArrowsFires multiple arrows into the air, to land in multiple sequences after a delay, each starting at the targeted location and spreading outwards in all directions. Each arrow deals damage in an area around it. Half of the arrows will land directly on targets if there are targets in their range.
Tornado ShotFires a piercing shot that travels until it reaches the targeted location. It will then fire projectiles out in all directions from that point, which will travel for a short time before disappearing.
Mirror ArrowFires an arrow at the target destination. When the arrow lands, a clone is summoned. The clone is a minion that uses your bow and quiver.
Blink ArrowFires an arrow at the target destination. When the arrow lands, you are teleported to it and a clone is summoned at your old location. The clone is a minion that uses your bow and quiver.
Kinetic BlastFires a projectile from a Wand that causes a series of small explosions surrounding its point of impact, each damaging enemies caught in the area.
Galvanic ArrowReleases arrows along with a burst of lightning which damages all enemies in a cone. The arrows degrade in-flight as the lightning dissipates, soon vanishing.
Blast RainFires arrows up in the air, to rain down in an area. Each arrow deals area damage around where it lands, and they will all overlap on the targeted location.
Scourge ArrowChannel to infuse an arrow with chaos, gaining stages while it is held. Release to fire it, leaving spore pods in its wake. Each spore pod blooms, firing thorn arrows, which travel for a short time before dissipating. Modifiers that cause additional projectiles to be fired will only apply to the initial arrows, and the spore pods will be split between those arrows.
Toxic RainFire arrows into the air that rain down around the targeted area, dealing damage to enemies they hit and creating spore pods where they land. Each spore pod deals chaos damage over time to nearby enemies and slows their movement speed. The pods last for a duration before bursting, dealing area damage.
Ensnaring ArrowFires an arrow that remains in the ground behind its final target, tethering that enemy to it. Ensnared enemies always count as moving, and have less movement speed while trying to break the snare. The snare will break if they leave the area of effect.
Kinetic BoltFire a projectile from your wand that changes direction in a zig-zag pattern at regular intervals or when hitting enemies. Each time it changes direction, a secondary projectile breaks off, flying in the direction it changed away from.
Storm RainFires an arrow into the air to land at a targeted location, dealing area damage. The arrow sticks in the ground where it lands, and periodically fires a beam of lightning to another arrow near it, dealing area damage between them.

Ballista Totem Support

Ballista Totem Support is a Support gem that modifies the supported bow or wand skill, so that instead of the player casting the skill directly, they summon a ballista totem using the skill. The totem uses the player's currently equipped bow or wand for the damage.

Skill functions and interactions

Ballista: Siege Ballista is part of the Ballista sub-class of totems. Ballista totems have an inherent added totem limit. They have a much shorter summoning range, spawning much closer to the summoner.

This gem will work with both Power Siphon and Frenzy if the player has a ranged weapon equipped. Totems use the player's own skills as though the player had cast them, and therefore skills cast by totems are affected by Charges on the player. Totems themselves have a maximum Power Charge and Frenzy Charge limit of zero, because those charges would have no effect.

Skills supported by this gem can be additionally supported by Multiple Totems Support.
