Cast on Death Support is a support gem. It causes linked spells to trigger when the player is killed. Note that this does not trigger on minion deaths.
Each supported spell skill will be triggered when you die. Cannot support skills used by totems, traps, or mines. Vaal skills, channelling skills, and skills with a reservation cannot be triggered.
Support, Spell, Trigger. Level: 1–20. Requires Level 38.
This is a Support Gem. It does not grant a bonus to your character, but to skills in sockets connected to it. Place into an item socket connected to a socket containing the Active Skill Gem you wish to augment. Right click to remove from a socket.
Note that this does not trigger on minion deaths. Requires Level 38. Each supported spell skill will be triggered when you die. Cannot support skills used by totems, traps, or mines. Vaal skills, channelling skills, and skills that reserve mana cannot be triggered.
Cast on Death is not a gem you make a build around. Because you’re dead when you use it, obviously. Totally useless in Hardcore. For Softcore, you do have a few options. The Portal is a good one, as long as where you died isn’t going to get you killed the moment you spawn in there. Other effects that could be good are large area effects. Spells that were cast before you died, and spells that trigger off this, continue to act while you are sitting there watching your dead body, which can help clear out a bunch of the enemies that killed you making your return easier later on.
Basically, it’s there to help players that end up dying a lot get further each time. For a pro who is running endgame maps and hardcore, it’s useless.
