Chaos damage supportgem does not work with spark!!!
What i mean is, its static and it does not matter how much spelldamage you have cause it doesnt affect the chaosdamage when supporting spark!

I'm not sure where the confusion lies here, but I'm going to take a stab at it. Spell damage is affecting chaos damage from Added Chaos Damage support gem. However, the 50% LESS damage (increased/decreased is additive, more/less is multiplicative) from the Spark spell also affects it. So, first you multiply your chaos damage (for my level 1 Added Chaos, it is 31-46 chaos damage) by all your combined spell damage (+114% total for my cannibalized spark witch) and then divide that in half. So, my numbers come out to:

((31 to 46) * 2.14) * .5 = 33.17 to 49.22

My character panel reports 33 - 49 chaos damage, so it seems to be right on for me, after rounding. My guess is you have near +100% spell damage and your extra spell damage ends up canceling that 50% less damage from spark, making it look like spell damage isn't working for your chaos damage.
Urist McDwarfy has been happy lately. He admired an exceptional ARPG recently. He took joy in slaughter lately. He has been attacked by the dead recently.
