NameShow Full Descriptions
Freezing Pulse
A cold based projectile spell that pierces enemies, dealing cold damage with a chance to freeze. The projectile loses damage and freeze chance based on how far it has travelled.
Increases Freezing Pulse's projectile speed, increasing the maximum distance that the projectiles travel. This allows Freezing Pulse to hit targets further away.
Ethereal Knives
A physical based projectile spell that launches several projectiles in an arc in front of the caster.
Increasing 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.
Galvanic Arrow
Release a ferocious burst of lightning from your bow. The burst damages close enemies and shoots three arrows in a cone infront of you. The arrows do not last long, and fizzle after a short duration. Galvanic arrow is a skill best used against nearby enemies.
Increase the size of Galvanic Arrow's lightning burst, and the speed of its arrows before they dissipate. This gem is invaluable for making your lightning burst bigger and your arrows fire further, hitting more enemies with each shot.

It will avoid choosing the same element twice in a row.

Faster Projectiles Support

FasterProjectilesFaster Projectiles Support is a Support gem. It increases the speed and damage of supported projectile skills.

Skill functions and interactions

FasterProjectilesFaster Projectiles Support won't affect how far the arrow projectiles travel. However, it will still affect the travel distance of projectiles from skills such EtherealKnivesEthereal Knives and FreezingPulseFreezing Pulse, which have a lifetime rather than a fixed travel distance.

For Anomalous Faster Projectiles Support, skills that never collide with targets (e.g. Ball Lightning) will never return.
