NameShow Full Descriptions
Barrage SupportFire a flurry of Kinetic Bolts in quick succession, damaging enemies consistently over a wide area. You cannot stop or move while firing. This gem improves damage but be careful not to get stuck taking damage while monsters attack you.
Added Lightning Damage SupportAdd lightning damage to Kinetic Bolt and its projectiles. A simple but valuable way to quickly kill enemies.
Added Cold Damage SupportAdd cold damage to Kinetic Bolt and its projectiles. A simple but valuable way to quickly kill enemies.
Elemental Damage with Attacks SupportIncrease the elemental damage dealt by Kinetic Bolt and its projectiles. Kinetic Bolt doesn't inherently deal elemental damage. Added elemental damage can come from equipment (or from Added Lightning and Added Cold support gems). This gem can increase that damage to more quickly kill enemies.
Inspiration SupportReduce the mana cost of using Kinetic Bolt. Also increase Kinetic Bolt's elemental damage and chance to critically strike with each attack. Wands can have powerful critical strikes. Critical strikes can deal more damage and inflict elemental ailments on enemies. Kinetic Bolt doesn't inherently deal elemental damage. Added elemental damage can come from equipment (or from Added Lightning and Added Cold support gems).
