In Echoes of the Atlas, it introduces two new gems that provide versatile ways for you to build powerful new characters. These are the Hydrosphere Skill Gem and the Trinity Support Gem.
| Hydrosphere creates a sphere of water, or moves an existing sphere and resets its duration. The sphere continually applies a drenched debuff with a short duration to enemies in its area or those it moves through. You can hit the sphere with other skills to inflict Cold and Lightning Ailments (other than Chill). The sphere pulses when created, at regular intervals while afflicted by an Ailment, and after moving, damaging all drenched enemies in a large area.
It requires Level 34, 79 Int. Tag: Spell, AoE, Duration, Cold, Orb, Lightning, Physical.
|Hydrosphere||10% increased Pulse Frequency||50|
|Anomalous Hydrosphere||10% increased Cast Speed||100|
|Divergent Hydrosphere||10% increased Area of Effect||100|

Hydrosphere skill summons a huge sphere of water that you can move around to crush enemies. While it is active, you can apply cold or lightning ailments to it. It will then pulse for a duration, afflicting nearby enemies with damage matching that ailment.
This skill gem can be acquired from level 34 and can be supported with spell, area of effect, duration, cold, orb, lightning and physical support gems. It pulses every 0.4 seconds while an ailment is applied to it. It also converts its physical damage to cold or lightning damage based on what ailments are on it.

As you can see from the above example, the player is applying freeze to the Hydrosphere with Freezing Pulse, and that causes it to repeatedly damage surrounding enemies with cold damage.
