PoE Enlighten Support

Here's a breakdown of the Enlighten Support Gem in Path of Exile:


  • Reduces Mana Cost and Reservation: Supported skill gems have their mana cost and reservation reduced by the specified multiplier.
  • Level Requirement: The gem must reach level 2 or above to apply the multiplier.
  • Cannot Support Non-Gem Skills: It cannot support skills granted by items or other sources.

Additional Effects from Quality:

  • Increased Experience Gain: The gem gains 0-100% increased experience, making it easier to level up.

Key Points:

  • Mana Management Tool: Enlighten is primarily used to reduce the mana cost and reservation of skills, allowing you to run more auras or expensive skills.
  • Limited Availability: It's a drop-only gem, meaning it cannot be purchased from vendors and must be found as loot.
  • Experience Gain: Leveling Enlighten can be challenging due to its drop-only nature, but the quality bonus helps accelerate the process.
  • Level Scaling: The mana reduction effect becomes more significant at higher gem levels.

Common Uses:

  • Running Multiple Auras: Reducing the reservation of auras allows you to activate more of them simultaneously, increasing your character's overall power.
  • Enabling Expensive Skills: Some active skill gems have high mana costs, making them difficult to sustain without mana reduction. Enlighten can make these skills more viable.
  • Optimizing Mana Usage: Even for skills with moderate mana costs, Enlighten can free up mana for other abilities or utility flasks.

Overall, Enlighten is a valuable support gem that offers flexibility and power in builds that rely on multiple auras or mana-intensive skills. It's a sought-after gem due to its ability to significantly enhance a character's mana management capabilities.
