also tiny little connections between sockets
what those connections(links) do is allow a support gem in one socket to effect a gem in another linked socket.
ex: Green skill gem Poison Arrow in one socket linked to Multiple Projectile support gem in another socket.
result: when you shoot a 3 Poison Arrows come out instead of 1
Multiple support gems can effect a single skill gem IF they are all connected with links.
ex: Poison Arrow + Multiple Project + Increase AOE + Increased Duration
Result: 3 Poison arrow with 30% increase cloud that last 30% longer
You can really make skills more effective by using support gems.
