Vaal Venom Gyre is a claw/dagger attack skill that does not deal damage directly, but instead temporarily increases your maximum number of Venom Gyre caught Projectiles to 50, immediately grants you up to your maximum number of caught Projectiles on use, and grants additional caught Projectiles over a secondary duration.
Vaal Venom Gyre is a Vaal skill gem.
Creates already-caught projectiles without firing them first, both immediately and over a secondary duration. Caught projectiles spiral outwards when you use Whirling Blades and do not return. Requires a Dagger or Claw.

Pierce: Primary projectiles can Pierce, allowing a single target to be struck by both the outgoing and returning projectiles. Does not generate additional Returning Projectiles.
Fork: Forking projectiles do not Return, but the final projectiles return as expected. This can be useful for clearing packs and generates additional Returning Projectiles.
Chain: Works as expected for the primary projectile. Projectiles do not Return until it is done Chaining.
Note: Caught projectiles can pierce, fork, split, and chain, but not return.
Whirling Blades: Launches caught Returning Projectiles in a spiralling fashion when used. The projectiles are released very quickly but sequentially. When released while travelling through a target, approximately 30% of caught Projectiles can shotgun a target.
Additional projectiles: Applies to the primary projectile, but not caught projectiles released by Whirling Blades.
Point Blank and Far Shot: Takes total travel distance into account. Caught projectiles released by Whirling Blades are considered new projectiles while Returning Projectiles are not.
Skill effect duration: Only applies to how long returning projectiles are stored and has no impact on Poison duration. Less Duration Support increases all damage dealt by the Skill.
This Skill can generate multiple hits and poison stacks due to the nature of its number of projectiles, giving it strong synergy with Herald of Agony, Vile Toxins Support, Withering Touch Support", and the Assassin's Noxious Strike and Toxic Delivery nodes.
As this skill does not directly do damage, #% increased Damage with Vaal Skills has no effect on damage.
