Skill functions and interactions

While Winter Orb Winter Orb has the Projectile keyword, testing shows it appears to gain no benefit from the Fork Fork Support, Pierce Pierce Support, or Chain Chain Support gems, even though the Active Skills window shows them as compatible. Firing projectiles in a nova with Sire of Shards Sire of Shards causes multiple projects to launch spread out as expected but land not exactly the same distance away from the caster.
