Tip: This new gem is designed for party play. This skill creates a bond between you and a specific party member, providing a big benefit to them while they stay within range, but with the very important drawback that if they die, so do you.
To best use this skill, you or your party member must build a tanky character with a lot of energy shield.
Let’s take a level 1 gem as an example:
