General Gem Discussion

Alright so i dont know where to post this but i figured id start here. I would simply like to talk about summons, right now specifically summon skeletons the thing i dislike most about this gem is simply why use summon skeletons when you can use SRS i mean no extra point investment to get the max amount of summons, does WAY more base damage and moves way faster. Now me i like skeletons i have since diablo 2 i just dont see any scenario where using skeletons is better than SRS with changes to threshold jewels hopefully dead reckoning will make it fun and usable again but i feel the base gem needs something new or different to make it better and have its own place in the game outside skele totem meat shields. Anyways constructive feedback or an explanation as why this is the way it is would be very appreciated
What is the base radius for sweep,lacerate and ground slam at lvl 1?Are they affected by increased radius like from disfavour?Thanks.
Lacerate: 38
Sweep: 26
Ground Slam: 35

Skills with their own built-in AoE are unaffected by +Weapon Range (note: Disfavour does not grant increased radius).

So the weapon range does nothing if i use any of these skills or cleave?Only works for earthquake?I'm looking for a AOE melee attack with good dmg,since EQ nerf and because with EQ builds attack speed stacking ruins the aftershock .
Correct, Weapon Range has no effect on the aforementioned Skills.
Weapon Range applies to Cyclone, as well as every single-target Skill (Heavy Strike, Glacial Hammer, Double Strike, etc.). Additionally, a couple Skills place an AoE effect at Weapon Range, including Earthquake and Ice Crash. Technically has an effect, but not really something to care for imo.
I didnt know where to post this so sorry if its on the wrong place.

I'm currently running Herald of Ice and Hatred which reserves 75% of my total mana, so I thought using the Reduced Mana Support gem would save some of it but it seems that the value is fixed, no matter the gem used, so my question is: how to lower the reserved mana? Is it possible to?

Thanks.

I want a different variations for some gems, like Frost Blade for example. Why there is no Lightning Blade or Fire Blade? It would be nice see different variations of some skills, that simply make build character easier and make personalization more intresting.

Hi!

Want to ask GGG: what are the least used skills at the moment?

Or if anyone know if GGG released info about this, that is
fairly close (2016 and after), please let me know.

Thanks! :)
I couldn't find Envy gem on the list, therefore I post it here.

So getting to the point



As you can see I got Enlighten, Generosity and Wrath all linked up.

My thinking was that Envy will be linked to both the Enlighten Gem, as well as Generosity, however it turned out that it's only affected by Generosity.

Could someone explain why is that the case?

Many thanks

/Edit. It's because of Envy isn't an active gem, only granted skill by item. I got my answer thx.
