Cast when Damage Taken is a support gem. It causes a linked spell to trigger when the player takes a certain amount of damage. Requires Level 38.
Each supported spell skill will track damage you take, and be triggered when the total damage taken reaches a threshold. Cannot support skills used by totems, traps, or mines. Vaal skills, channelling skills, and skills that reserve mana cannot be triggered.
