Arc Quality

Per 1% Quality: 0.5% chance to Shock enemies A Gemcutter’s Prism Gemcutter’s Prism (often abbreviated GCP) is a currency item that can be used to improve the quality of a gem. Each Gemcutter’s Prism Gemcutter’s Prism will always raise the quality by 1%. The maximum quality is 20%.

Arc Skill functions and interactions

  • Since it is not a projectile, Arc Arc cannot fork or pierce, and it cannot be supported with Lesser Multiple Projectiles Lesser Multiple Projectiles Support or Greater Multiple Projectiles Greater Multiple Projectiles Support.
  • Supporting Arc Arc with Chain Chain Support will result in additional chains.
  • Arc Arc will chain to a random target within a specified radius centered on last target struck. Arc Arc cannot chain back to the same target immediately, and must bounce one more time before chaining to the previous target. Because Arc Arc also forks with each bounce, it requires 4 grouped enemies to bounce back to the original.
  • Arc Arc will target the nearest enemy within range if not cast on an enemy.
  • Can be used in left mouse button slot to cast and move.
