PoE Automation Skill Gem Support Gem

In Path of Exile: Necropolis, you can automate many Instant Skills and Warcries with two new Skills Gems, Automation and Call to Arms.

We are adding two new Skill Gems in 3.24 Automation and Call to Arms. These Skill Gems can be toggled on to autocast linked instant skills the moment they’re off cooldown. We’ve removed the capacity to bind any instant skills to left click as a result. This not only allows you to retain the same behaviour as before, but it will now autocast the skills while you are stationary. Players who use a gamepad will appreciate this one.

  • Added a new Intelligence/Dexterity Skill Gem - Automation: While this skill is active, supported spells will trigger whenever their cooldown is over. Supports spell skills that are instant and have no reservation. Cannot support skills used by totems, traps, or mines. Cannot modify the skills of minions.

Necropolis Quality of Life: Automation & Call to Arms Skill Gems

PoE Automation Necropolis Build 3.24

Automation in Path of Exile is a support gem that automates the casting of linked spells, transforming them into a continuous stream of magical effects. Here's a breakdown of its functionality:

Automatic Spellcasting: While Automation is active, any instant spells you've linked to it will automatically trigger whenever their cooldown finishes. This essentially creates a loop of spell effects, providing a constant stream of offensive or utility.

Cooldown Harmony: Similar to Call to Arms, Automation makes all your linked instant spells share a single cooldown. Using one spell puts all your linked spells on cooldown as well. However, with the constant triggering from Automation, they all come back online together, creating a synchronized spellcasting cascade.

Reduced Cooldown Recovery: While it might seem counterintuitive due to the shared cooldown, Automation offers a slight benefit. Supported spells have a 5% reduced cooldown recovery rate. This means the base cooldown of your spells is slightly lower, allowing them to potentially trigger more frequently within the Automation loop.

Who Needs Automation?

This support gem is a powerful tool for builds that rely on a constant stream of instant spells for damage, utility, or buffs. Here are some aspects to consider when incorporating Automation:

  • Spell Selection: Choose instant spells (spells with no cast time) that synergize well with each other and your overall build strategy. Consider spells that offer offensive buffs like damage over time effects, curses, or defensive benefits like temporary shields.
  • Mana Management: Since Automation triggers spells frequently, you'll need to manage your mana effectively. Consider using passive skills or gear that grants mana regeneration or reduces the mana cost of spells.
  • No Aura Support: Keep in mind that Automation cannot support Auras, which have a mana reservation cost.
  • Activation Strategy: Decide when to activate Automation strategically. For sustained combat, keeping it active can be beneficial. However, for situations requiring a burst of power, activating it just before a boss fight can unleash a rapid succession of spell effects.

By mastering the art of automated spellcasting with Automation, you can transform your spell-focused build into a machine of magical devastation in Path of Exile.

PoE Automation Gem Explained

The Automation gem is a support gem in Path of Exile that automates the casting of specific spells. Here's a breakdown of its functionality:

What it Does:

  • Makes linked instant spells with no mana reservation cast automatically whenever their cooldown finishes.
  • Essentially creates a constantly casting loop for these spells.


  • Cannot support skills used by totems, traps, or mines.
  • Doesn't affect minion skills.
  • You cannot directly cast the linked spells while Automation is active.

Effects on Supported Spells:

  • Reduced Cooldown Recovery Rate: Supported spells have a 5-24% slower cooldown (depending on the gem level). This balances the benefit of automatic casting.

How it Works:

  1. Link Automation with your desired instant spells.
  2. Activate Automation.
  3. The linked spells will automatically cast whenever their cooldowns are ready.

Things to Consider:

  • Automation is a niche gem. While it offers convenience, the reduced cooldown and the inability to directly cast spells can be drawbacks.
  • It works best with spells that have strong effects even when used individually.
  • Consider using it for utility spells or buffs that you want active most of the time.
