Support gems are socketed in the same way as skill gems, with the difference that they do not give access to another active skill. Instead, they modify any Skill gems in sockets linked to the support gem, while also typically increasing the mana cost of the skill. The modifications vary based on both the active skill being altered and the support gem, and certain Skill gem - Support gem combinations will leave the skill unmodified. For instance a Clarity gem linked with Added Fire damage remains unchanged.

Multiple Skill gems may be linked to a Support gem, in which case it will modify all of the skills, and multiple support gems may be linked to a Skill gem, in which case it will be modified by all of them. However, if two copies of a support gem are linked to the same skill, only the higher level gem will be used. If armor contains two copies of a Skill gem linked to different sets of support gems, two seperate versions of the skill will be available, each with their own modifications. This may be desirable if for instance one version has been modified for single target damage, while another has been modified for AoE damage.
