    Sockets and gems

    Are sockets only availible in weapons and helms now? Webpage for gems only gives info about weapons and helms but the jeweler is still discribed to socket armors etc aswell. Also is it mentioned how many sockets an item can have?

    Saw in the beta that armors etc still have sockets but that might not be the most recent build...

    I don't think anyone really knows until we get some official response on this.

    And looking at item affixes, armors can still get sockets, so not sure which part is not final yet.

    I would guess that only weapons and helms can be socketed now, otherwise they wouldn't have written that on the website.

    That's really funny.

    "Gems are supposed to be long term goal"

    Oh, and by the way, we reduced the length of your long term min-max goals by removing a bunch of sockets. Yeah, we are that insightful.

    I still think that a top gem will take insane amounts of time to obtain, but seeing as there doesn't seem to be a way for gems to dissapear, sooner or later they won't be so rare (as is the case with all items btw).
