Vaal Power Siphon Quality

Per 1% Quality: 1% increased Damage. 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%.

Skill Functions and Interactions

Vaal Power Siphon Vaal Power Siphon fires one projectile at each enemy, meaning that if 20 enemies are present, adding Lesser Multiple Projectiles Lesser Multiple Projectiles will cause 60 total projectiles to be fired. However each set of projectiles is able only to hit the enemy it targeted, and only with a single projectile. This means that additional projectiles created by support gems such as Greater Multiple Projectiles Greater Multiple Projectiles Support and Barrage Barrage Support do not have any effect despite reducing damage. Other support gems, such as Chain Chain Support, do result in each projectile being able to hit more than one target.

In terms of the range meant by “nearby” enemies, Vaal Power Siphon Vaal Power Siphon will target at least all enemies onscreen. This is an AoE calculation, so projectile speed does not affect the effective range.
