This page is a stub. You can help Path of Exile Wiki by expanding it.

Active skills are abilities used by players and monsters. Unlike passive skills they have to be directly cast by the player or the monster.

Usually active skills are obtained by placing active skill gems into an socket, however some items (or more specifically some modifiers on items) also grant active skills.
