Consider helping out in updating the wiki for 3.8.0 - see Path of Exile Wiki:To-do list/3.8.0.

Game data updates to the wiki have been started.

A system has been added that will automatically add divination cards and other items to the item acquisition sections where appropriate. Entries added by this system will be shown as automatic in the item acquisition section.

Some pages will need to be updated to include upgraded_from_disabled=true if they are not eligible for the system.

Some further details on what needs to be done can be found on Path of Exile Wiki:To-do list/Automatic upgraded from and issues can be posted on the talk page.

Close Combat Support is a support gem which grants the supported attack more melee damage based on how close the user is to the enemy. It also grants a buff that causes the next unsupported movement skill more attack and cast speed on the next use on hit. This support gem restricts the skill to swords and axes.

Skill functions and interactions

The "up to x% more damage" stat on Close Combat support (and the matching stat on the Slayer's Impact notable) apply the full damage bonus to targets up to a distance of 15 units from you, then linearly scales down the bonus to 0 at a distance of 40 units. [1]
