Cast when Damage Taken

i am the only one who finds this gem akward?

the gem literaly requires you to get beaten and in exchange at max level it provides 6-18% more damage and a significant cast speed reduction compare to other cast on effect

i dont know, it feels like a waste to have it only for casting curses and buffs



may be a threshold jewel that greatly increace both the threshold damage requirement and the spell powers.

Not sure if this has been discussed before (lots of pages to go through -if so, please redirect me to the page where this has been discussed), but this gem does not work when damage taken comes from channeling skills. This creates problematic situations in pvp and in high Tier maps where bosses use such skills (the curses have to be casted manually, and time is precious -especially if one uses more than 2). Therefore, builds based on leech -on top of some regen- are having lots of issues. Seems to me that the remaining good CI builds, after the nerf of Vaal Pact, are forced to go block / regen, with this mechanic in such a state.
I do understand that channeling skills are not considered as hits, but they are still active skills which are used manually and they do make damage; so, is this a conscious decision / mechanic or still an issue to be fixed?

Channeled Skills such as Blade Flurry do count towards CwDT - you're thinking of Damage over Time. DoT doesn't count partially due to Blood Rage and Righteous Fire, it would be mad bonkers busted.
Just wondering but how come this gem wasn't setup to proc when a % of hp was taken as damage and as you would level it, it would scale with lower hp?

Eg: level 1 would proc when 90% of hp was taken as damage and level 20 would be 15% of hp.

I haven't really seen anyone bothering to level this support gem...
I made that suggestion few years ago. Guess what was response?
