PoE Locus Mine Support

Locus Mine Support

Locus Mine Support is a new Dexterity/Intelligence Support Gem. It modifies the supported bow or wand attack skill so that instead of casting it directly, the player throws a mine which uses the skill when the player detonates them. Mines are thrown in an arc shape, and fire projectiles toward the player.

Tags: Bow, Attack, Support, Projectile, Mine. Cost & Reservation Multiplier: 50%. Requires Level 8.

Build Guide

The Locus Mine Support gem looks OP and affects attack skills that use bows and wands. Instead of directly using the supported skill, you throw mines in an arc that uses that skill for you to target your location when you detonate them.

Cannot support channelling skills like Scourge Arrow or Snipe.

Does Locus Mine Support cause mines to have a lower maximum throwing range than other mines?

Supported Gem

Elemental HitEach attack with this skill will choose an element at random, and will only be able to deal damage of that element. If the attack hits an enemy, it will also deal damage in an area around them, with the radius being larger if that enemy is suffering from an ailment of the chosen element. It will avoid choosing the same element twice in a row.
FrenzyPerforms an attack that gives the character a frenzy charge if it hits. Frenzy charges increase your attack speed.
SnipeFires an arrow at a target which deals high damage and always hits. The attack is slow and interruptable. It discharges frenzy charges by increasing the attack speed.
Caustic ArrowFires an arrow which deals chaos damage in an area on impact, and spreads caustic ground. Enemies standing on the caustic ground take chaos damage over time.
Ice ShotFires an arrow that converts some physical damage to cold on its target and converts all physical damage to cold in a cone behind that target.
Split ArrowFires multiple arrows at different targets.
Explosive ArrowFires an arrow which will stick into an enemy or wall, and then explode, dealing area damage around it, either after a duration or when the maximum number of arrows stuck to that target is reached. If an enemy has multiple Explosive Arrows stuck in them, the first one to explode will consume the others, adding their damage to its explosion.
Power SiphonFires your wand to unleash projectiles that fire toward enemies in front of you or to your sides, dealing increased damage and granting you a power charge if an enemy is killed by, or soon after, the hit.
PuncturePunctures enemies, causing a bleeding debuff, which will be affected by modifiers to skill duration. Puncture works with bows, daggers, claws or swords.
Lightning ArrowFires a charged arrow at the target, causing them to be struck by a bolt of lightning which damages a number of surrounding enemies.
Burning ArrowFires a burning arrow that deals fire damage and has a chance to ignite.
BarrageAfter a short preparation time, you attack repeatedly with a ranged weapon. These attacks have a small randomised spread. Only works with Bows and Wands. This skill cannot be Triggered.
Vaal Burning ArrowFires an arrow that explodes, dealing fire damage to its target and other nearby enemies, with an increased chance of igniting them.
Tornado ShotFires a piercing shot that travels until it reaches the targeted location. It will then fire projectiles out in all directions from that point, which will travel for a short time before disappearing.
Kinetic BlastFires a projectile from a Wand that causes a series of small explosions surrounding its point of impact, each damaging enemies caught in the area.
Galvanic ArrowReleases arrows along with a burst of lightning which damages all enemies in a cone. The arrows degrade in-flight as the lightning dissipates, soon vanishing.
Siege BallistaSummons a ballista totem that attacks with piercing arrows. Requires a Bow.
Shrapnel BallistaSummons a ballista totem that fires multiple arrows with extreme force, breaking them apart into shrapnel. Enemies can be hit by multiple arrows from the same attack. Requires a Bow.
Ensnaring ArrowFires an arrow that remains in the ground behind its final target, tethering that enemy to it. Ensnared enemies always count as moving, and have less movement speed while trying to break the snare. The snare will break if they leave the area of effect.
Kinetic BoltFire a projectile from your wand that changes direction in a zig-zag pattern at regular intervals or when hitting enemies. Each time it changes direction, a secondary projectile breaks off, flying in the direction it changed away from.
Vaal Caustic ArrowFires a slow-moving serpentine arrow which deals chaos damage while piercing enemies, and leaves a trail of caustic ground. Enemies standing on the caustic ground take chaos damage over time.
Vaal Lightning ArrowFires charged arrows, which repeatedly travel for a short time before changing direction. When they hit enemies, they are struck by a bolt of lightning which damages a number of surrounding enemies.
Vaal Split Arrow[DNT] Fires multiple arrows which continuously fork as they fly.
