Craft Gems

As you continue to play the game, you will eventually be able to obtain gems which are a random drop from enemies. When you have stockpiled enough gems remember to visit the Jeweler to craft higher tier gems.

Crafting gems will cost  gold and 3 of the lower rarity gems which is consistent between each rarity. After a gem has been crafted/upgraded it will increase the base stats provided. It is also important to note that when a gem is upgraded the level requirement also increases.


As you progress through the game you may want to change skill or item builds, which may require you to change or upgrade your gems. The Jeweler allows you to unsocket gems that have been placed in your equipment, doing so will return the gem to your inventory and reopens an empty socket to place a new gem.

Note: Unsocketing a gem cost gold, the gold cost scales/increases depending on item power.

To unsocket an item players must click on the icon highlighted on the image below, then select an item with a socketed gem.

Add Socket

If you happen to find a piece of equipment which does not have a socket, you may visit the Jeweler to add a socket to that item. Adding a socket to an item costs gold and a rare resource called Scattered Prism which has a chance to drop from World Bosses, due to the scarcity of this material we recommend only adding a socket to gear with a good Aspect and Affixes.

The list below shows how many sockets a piece of equipment can have.

  • Helm = 1 Socket
  • Chest = 2 Socket
  • Pants = 2 Socket
  • Amulet = 1 Socket
  • Ring = 1 Socket
  • 1 Handed Weapon = 1 Socket
  • 2 Handed Weapon = 2 Socket
  • Bow = 2 Socket
  • Focus = 1 Socket

Upgrade Item

Jewelry such as Amulets and Rings can be upgraded to increase its base stat resistances and affixes.


  • Legendary Items can be upgraded 4 times, while Rare items can be upgraded 3 times
  • We recommend not upgrading low rarity jewelry (Common and Magic), as Rare and Legendary jewelry have more affix slots.
  • Abstruse Sigils are required for the final upgrade of a Legendary jewelry and can be obtained by salvaging Legendary jewelry
