by on 21. October 2021

 Gems are rewards that are earned through certain quests . They also drop off mobs with the progress of the game. In order to give you additional rewards Gems can be placed into sockets in Chest Armor and Head Armor. Gems are a crucial component of numerous Horadric Cube recipe. This guide will teach you how to improve your gear with Gems, as well as the best way to eliminate unnecessary Gems and increase the number of Gems.

 For Classic players (those choosing not to play the Lord of Destruction (LoD) expansion), Gems are the only items that fit into sockets of items, since Gems and Runes can only be found within the expansion. Gems remain an essential element of Expansion players' leveling gear and in items that do not allow Runewords. In both cases, Gems are commonly used reagents in various Horadric cube recipes.

 The Horadric Cube is important for various things related to Gems especially upgrading Gems and removing them from sockets, or socketing gear to accept Gems. They can also be used in a variety of recipes.

 Gem Basics in Diablo II: Resurrected

 Gems, such as Runes and Jewels, are able to be put into sockets on four types of gear: Chest Armor Head Armor, Shields, or Weapons. The gear piece must contain at least one open socket that can accept the Gem. You can make use of the Horadric Cube to create sockets in these armor types.

 There are seven kinds of Gems that each have specific properties: Amethyst, Diamond, Emerald, Ruby, Sapphire, Topaz, and Skull. While the quality of gem drops you'll be able to get will improve when you get to higher difficulty the gems that are available have a similar chance of dropping (ie. you're equally likely to get an Amethyst as you are a Skull in any particular gem drop). While you'll have a higher chances of getting better-quality gems with higher difficulty levels, there's still a chance to receive lower-quality gems. It would be Hell without the chance to get a Chipped instead of a Perfect every once in a while.

 Gems are available in five levels: Chipped, Flawed Regular, Chipped, Flawless, and Perfect, such as Chipped Ruby or Flawless Skull. The common gems are called "Diamond" or "Amethyst" according to the type of gem. The more advanced the level gem, the more desirable qualities it is.

 Each type of gem has its own character level (cLvl). If you insert a gem into an item with an cLvl lower requirement than the gem the gem's cLvl requirement will be raised to the minimum cLvl for the item. In this case, for example, if insert the Flawless gem (cLvl 15) into a sword with a minimum cLvl of 12, the sword will now have a minimum cLvl 15 to match the Flawless gem's requirements. But it's not the same in reverse; a higher cLvl item doesn't drop its cLvl until it is equal to that of a lower-level gem.

 Gems can be utilized at any level, but they're particularly beneficial in low- to mid-levels where Runes remain extremely scarce. The perfect Gems are a viable currency in numerous Horadric Cube recipes. Some , like Diamonds with Resist All and Topaz with Magic Find retain some usefulness even to the highest levels.

 In contrast to Runes that are a part of the game, there's no particular sequence that you can apply to Gems to enhance their effectiveness. You can stack the power in a way, for example, if you have three Perfect Topaz within a Helm you will get +72% Magic Find (+24% Magic Find) x 3.
