NameShow Full Descriptions
Physical to Lightning SupportThis gem makes all of Galvanic Arrows physical damage turn to lightning damage. This causes Galvanic Arrow deal full lightning damage, instead of 50% lightning and 50% physical damage. This gem makes it much easier to increase your damage. If you get any skills that increase your lighting or elemental damage, it will increase the full lightning damage dealt by Galvanic Arrow.
Elemental Damage with Attacks SupportIncrease Galvanic Arrow's elemental damage, hitting enemies harder for more damage. This gem will not increase the physical damage dealt by Galvanic Arrow, but it will increase the lightning damage it deals. This gem is very good when paired with the Physical to Lightning support gem, as it will increase the full lightning damage dealt by Galvanic Arrow.
Lightning Penetration SupportAllow Galvanic Arrow's lightning damage to penetrate lightning resistance on enemies. This allows for more consistent damage against lightning-resistant enemies, such as Bosses, Rares, and Magic enemies. This will not allow Galvanic Arrow's physical damage to penetrate resistance, as physical damage is unaffected by lightning resistance. Monsters show if they are resistant to damage in their mods. Hover over monsters to see their mods.
Mirage Archer SupportSummon a Mirage Archer above your head when Galvanic Arrow hits an enemy. This Mirage Archer will fire Galvanic Arrows at nearby enemies until it disappears. This gem has many uses. Use it to attack enemies while you're moving, to attack enemies you're not facing, or to deal more damage.
Barrage SupportLet loose a flurry of arrows with the Barrage support gem. With each Galvanic Arrow fired, lightning will burst from your bow.This will stop your arrows from firing in a cone, and instead make them fire in sequence. This gem is invaluable for unleashing a flurry of attacks on strong enemies, like bosses. Be careful using it in dangerous dangerous situations. You cannot move while firing, so you cannot escape dangerous enemies.
Faster Projectiles SupportIncrease 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.

    Galvanic Arrow


    Galvanic Arrow is a ranged bow attack skill that fires arrows which deals lightning damage in an area of effect cone. The arrows have a short range, but it can be extended with increased projectile speed, which also increases the AoE.



    Skill functions and interactions

    Both the arrow and lightning cone are modified by projectile damage modifiers, including Point Blank. Area damage modifiers (likeConcentrated Effect Support ) will affect the cone but not the arrow damage. The cone and arrow deal damage independent of each other, effectively doubling damage dealt to monsters directly in the line of fire.

    Galvanic Arrow shoots a lightning cone each time you shoot your bow. Barrage Support makes your projectiles fire sequentially instead of simultaneously, meaning a lightning cone is triggered for each projectile shot during your attack.
