Empower is a support gem that increases the gem level of supported active skill gems.

Skill function and interactions

Empower is a drop-only gem that doesn't have any effect at level one and can only reach level 3 through regular experience gain. The required experience to reach level 3 is considerably greater than normal gems. Its level cap can be exceeded the same way as other gems.

Empower only affects active skill gems, meaning skills granted from items can't be supported by it.
