x% increased Rarity of Items Dropped by Slain enemies
Since patch 1.0.6, the bonus from this gem applies to enemies killed by degeneration or damage over time effects.
When linked with a skill that creates a minion, trap, mine, or totem, the item rarity modifier does apply to kills made by the minion/trap/mine/totem. This includes deaths caused from Minion Instability explosions.
Since the increased Rarity of Items only applies when landing a killing blow, combining this gem with can be useful when using multiple skills, or while playing in a party, as it increases the chances of the linked skill being the one that lands the killing blow.
