various things to note:

number of sockets
color of sockets (have to match skill gem color)
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.
