Impending Doom is a support gem for hex curses. When the hex on the supported skill expires, it triggers Doom Blast to deal chaos damage in an area around it, dealing more damage the more doom the hex had.

Skill functions and interactions

Doom Blast is considered a spell, therefore modifiers to spell damage apply to it.

Doom Blast is triggered when a hex ends, and its damage benefits from bonuses of the ending hex. E.g. the reduced chaos resistance from Despair.
