Dread Banner is a banner aura skill. While the banner is active, it grants the user and nearby allies a chance to impale on attack and causes nearby enemies to have decreased accuracy. When placed, the Banner increases the maximum Fortification of nearby allies.

Effect of gem level and quality on Impale bonuses

The bonuses to chance and effect of Impale granted by raising the quality of Dread Banner are a little counterintuitive due to the aggressive rounding which isn't immediately obvious from the gem description.

    gems. Bold font indicates that the quality breakpoint can be achieved using only the gem's own quality bonus.
  • Assuming there are no other sources of aura effect on the passive tree and gear, a corrupted Dread Banner at level 20 with 22–23% quality will always outperform the gem at level 21 with sub-20% quality. The reason for this is that both round down to 21% increased Impale effect while 20% quality also provides an extra percent point of chance to Impale. Having a level 21 gem with 20% quality is, of course, superior to both, as it hits the breakpoints for both the chance and effect of Impale.
  • In terms of a DPS increase, hitting the next breakpoint on the chance to Impale is generally more worthwhile than Impale effect. Thus, since the chance is flat at all levels and is only raised by gem quality, it's more practical to support Dread Banner with Enhance rather than with Empower if given an opportunity, unless the latter can serve a double purpose by supporting another DPS-increasing gem. A level 21 Dread Banner with 20% quality supported by a level 4 Enhance will be able to reach a 24% increase on both chance and effect of Impale; whereas if supported by level 4 Empower it would only have 22% increased chance and 25% increased effect, which works out to a significantly lower DPS increase as well as increased mana reservation due to Empower's higher mana multiplier.
