Mechanics

One socketed spell is triggered per attack. If you have more than one spell socketed in a wand they will be alternately triggered between attacks, in order (top to bottom).

Cooldown Time: When a supported spell is successfully cast, it and all supported spells of the same name are put on cooldown for 250 milliseconds.[2][3] The resulting optimal attacks per second have certain breakpoints, which are lower than pure calculations would yield, likely due to technical constraints.[4]

Dual wielding: Spells will trigger when their corresponding wand attack. Spells of the same name share the cooldown even if they are socketed in each wand(Ex: 1 Arc in one pen and another Arc in the other). Spells in main hand are triggered before spells in offhand.
