Per 1% Quality: Supported Skills have 0.5% reduced Mana Cost. A Gemcutter’s Prism (often abbreviated GCP) is a currency item that can be used to improve the quality of a gem. Each Gemcutter’s Prism will always raise the quality by 1%. The maximum quality is 20%.
The mana cost of any skill supported by this gem will be paid with life instead of mana, and similarly supported skills that reserve mana will instead reserve life. When reserving life, “reduced mana cost” from quality of this gem does not reduce the amount of life reserved.
The mana cost will still be calculated normally – reduced Mana Cost and other similar modifiers will still apply, but the resulting cost will be paid with life.
Supporting minion skills with Blood Magic Support will affect both the cost you pay to use the skill, and the cost the resulting minion uses to pay its own skills, if any. This can help certain spectres use their skills more often.
