Direct Damage (DD) Gems are used for magical attacks on an enemy to reduce his hitpoints in one shot as opposed to gradually over time. Some DD gems affect one enemy, whereas other DD gems affect all enemies simultaneously and are of benefit in player vs. player combat. DD gems come in all magical colors, but can be assigned to two broad categories depending on how they're used: once-per-draw (OPD) or recastable. OPD DD gems sit in your active gem slots after being drawn, and once you click on them, then one magical attack occurs on the enemy and the gem is returned to your pouch. Recastable DD gems in play fire off one magical attack every time you click on them, but stay in play, thus eliminating the need to wait for that gem to be redrawn in order for you to use them again. However the downside is that there is a minimum cooldown (delay) time between magical attacks for recastable DD gems. In addition, OPD gems typically do more damage or cost less energy/mana than their recastable counterparts. DD gems in general have lower damage-to-energy and damage-to-mana ratios than damage-over-time gems, draining your energy and mana pools more quickly, but you do not have to wait for DD gems to have their full effect. Damage ranges for DD gems tend to be quite large, except for the Blue Magic DD gems.

The damage caused by your DD Gems can be increased with high Intelligence, and enemy DD gem attacks can be weakened if you have high Contravention.
