Hope this is straight forward:

I have a bow with two linked dexterity sockets. I have an ice shot and split shot gem. I guess I was sort of expecting to have a split ice shot skill, but that didn't happen.

How do linked gems work?

Split shot is a skill as is ice shot.

You can't support a skill with another skill.

Support ice shot with fork or lesser multiple projectiles or both.

Those are both active gems. Linked gems are used to have Active modified by Support Gem abilities like: Faster Attack Speed, Life on Hit, Stun, etc.

Oh, I see. I've never seen a support gem drop/quest reward so I didn't even know they existed.

There's text beneath each support gem saying "This is a support gem", or something like that.

But otherwise, yes, you're right. If you have a G-G-G link, for example, and you use Lightning Arrow + LMP + Mana Leech, you're going to have a Lightning Arrow that splits further while leeching mana back on hit.

You will be rewarded you frst support gem as soon as you enter Merveil's cave from the Cove area.

Use the waypoint back to town and talk to the girl.
