Gems/Enchants Information

AnotherWay > Gems/Enchants Information

 

First, let’s introduce new keywords that exist in the game now.

Gems – Gems are used to be put inside socketed items that give special bonuses according to the gem’s type and tier.

Gem types – Ruby, Sapphire, Diamond, Amethyst, and Emerald.

Gem tiers – Chipped -> Flawed -> Normal -> Flawless -> Perfect.

 

Each gem type has a different bonus. 

For example, Ruby increases maximum health and Sapphire increases maximum mana.

Each gem tier gives the same effect but the higher tier gem gives stronger bonuses.

For example, Chipped ruby gives you 10 vitality but perfect ruby gives you 25 vitality.

What other bonuses gems give, we will let you find out yourself.

 

Sockets – The number of sockets an item can have is depended on the item’s type and tier.

Item types – Weapon, Chestplate, Gloves, Helm, Boots, Belt, Shield, Ring, Amulet.

Item tiers – 1, 2, 3, 4 (based on crafting)

 

Each item type has a different amount of sockets in it.

For example, tier 1 gloves have 1 open socket but tier 4 gloves have 3 open sockets.

To note – Not every item type has sockets, for example, amulets, rings, and shields do not have sockets!

To know how many sockets other item types and tiers have we will let you find out yourself.

 

Enchants – Enchants have various effects depending on the item’s type. Enchants have tiers and some no tiers.

Item types – Weapon, Chestplate, Gloves, Helm, Boots, Belt, Shield, Ring, Amulet.

Enchant tiers – I, II, III, IV, V or none

 

Each item type has a different possible enchant.

For example, a weapon can only have offensive enchants such as Poisoning (has I-V tier), Armor pierce (has I-III tier), or Smite that has no tiers.

For example, all other defensive item types such as Chestplate, gloves, helm, boots, belt can not get the weapon enchants but have their own.

For example, defensive item types have such enchants as Physical resistances (has I-III tier), Magic resistances (has I-III tier).

Bows also have their own unique enchants.

To note – Not every item type has available enchants, for example, amulets, rings, and shields do not have enchants!

There are more enchants but we want the players to find them out themselves.

 

Question: Why have all of this?

Answer: We feel that back in the days of Diablo 2 we didn’t have much variety in class builds and strategies, every player and their build felt the same as other player’s. So we felt the need to change all of that, we think by introducing Gems, Sockets, and Enchants players will have a chance to express more of their ideas by making unique builds/unique playstyles. 

Question: Why do you not explain everything in detail?

Answer: We believe that if we explain every little detail it will ruin the “hype” of exploring everything yourself, we think that you should try everything yourself and feel like you are playing a different game/different mod when you come to our server. We want to bring the days where you come to the game clueless and have no idea of what is the best in the game.
