Skill Functions and Interactions

Since it is not a projectile, Arc cannot Pierce or Fork, and it cannot be supported with Greater or Lesser Multiple Projectiles. Supporting Arc with Chain will result in additional chains.

Arc will chain to a random target within a specified radius centered on last target struck. Arc cannot chain back to the same target immediately, and must bounce one more time before chaining to the previous target.

Note that there is a 50% damage reduction on this gem, meaning all additional damage (including from Support Gems) will be halved.
