As a red (strength) gem socket is not the desired colour for a Death Aura build, and because Death’s Oath Death’s Oath has a high strength requirement, it is recommended to use a Crafting Bench and the add-socket / remove-socket method to recolour the socket of this item.

2. Death Aura Build

The chaos damage over time aura is a skill that activates on equipping Death’s Oath Death’s Oath, and is modified by socketed support gems as well as modifiers that affect auras, area of effect, damage over time, and chaos damage. The tool tip damage does not display damage increases from X% increased effect of Non-Curse Auras you Cast modifiers from unique items such as Dying Breath Dying Breath and from the passive tree, but the actual damage of the skill is affected by these modifiers.

Currently, there are five support gems that naturally affect Death Aura:

  • Concentrated Effect Support Concentrated Effect Support
  • Efficacy Support Efficacy Support
  • Increased Area of Effect Support Increased Area of Effect Support
  • Void Manipulation Support Void Manipulation Support
  • Item Rarity Support Item Rarity Support
  • Item Quantity Support (currently unobtainable normally)

Additionally, Arcane Surge Support Arcane Surge Support can be used in a socket to support Death Aura. While this gem does not provide any direct damage increase (since Death Aura doesn’t scale with spell damage), it adds a duration component which will enable the use of the following support gems:

  • Swift Affliction Support Swift Affliction Support
  • Less Duration Support Less Duration Support

Since Death Aura is a triggered skill, it will not be activated if equipped on Animate Guardian Animate Guardian. The on-kill damage taken, however, still applies.
