PoE Skill Gem Quality

Bothactiveandsupportskill gemsmay have quality. Every skill is affected by quality differently, but frequently it somehow improves the damage dealt with the skill.Buffsandcurses, obviously, do not have their damage improved. Even those that do have their damage improved will see different rates of improvement for a given amount of quality.

(Video) Skill Gem Recipe, PoE Skill Gem Vendor Recipe

The quality of skill gems may be improved with aGemcutter's Prism. These upgrades always improve a skill's quality by 1%. Alternatively, a level 20 skill gem and aGemcutter's Prismcan be sold for a level 1 gem with 20% quality.

The effect of quality scales with the base quality effect, however, only whole numbers will be granted (and thus the effect will always be rounded down); for example3% qualityon a gem with0.5% effectwill only grant1% effectandnot1.5% effect. Effects that have some degree of fractions naturally are rounded to their natural bases (i.e. seconds will be rounded to milliseconds, etc.).

It is possible to get a gem's quality above 20% throughcorruption, the use ofEnhance Supportand certain gear.
