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.
Aha. Thanks!

I use Ground Slam, my build is pretty much just a ground slammer.

Right now I have a 4 link chest piece, 3 red and 1 green sockets. so I put Ground slam in there than add attack speed (green support gem) and added fire damage and life on hit (red support gems). And that means only when I use ground slam, it has increased attack speed (30% currently) + 34% physical damage added as fire + 34 life on hit. So I just made Ground Slam super awesome!

This game SHITS on D3
I can imagine.
