NameShow Full Descriptions
Perforate
Slam the ground to launch deadly spikes up at enemies. The spikes are tightly packed, can hit multiple enemies, and can hit the same enemy multiple times. Switch to Sand Stance using Blood & Sand gems to explode spikes out over a wider area.
Close Combat improves your damage against monsters close to you. As Perforate only hits nearby enemies (without Sand stance), this support is a valuable way to increase your damage. Travel Skills are also quicker after you hit enemies with this gem. Travel skills move you quickly to avoid danger.
