Please remove cost of unsocketing gems ASAP(1)Category: GeneralApril-22-2014 9:52 AM PDT (7 years ago) Go to Blizzard forum post
What purpose does this gold cost serve?

From my perspective I've already blown all my gold and it takes me a long time to save up enough to upgrade my gems. Now the new loot system sometimes gives me tough gearing decisions. The only way I know how to evaluate the choices is to swap back and forth between those weapons (the main example) and see how things play out.

Currently it's costing me at least 1 million gold to swap a gem into a new weapon for a trial and back again. This serves no purpose to the game.. Just remove the cost please, thanks.

Hey, everyone!

I have some information to share with you about an upcoming change we’re planning to make. We intend to reduce the gold cost to unsocket top tier gems in a future patch. The goal of this change is to help balance unsocketing costs with other resource sinks and make the act of unsocketing a top tier gem feel less punitive. These value below are not final and of course subject to change, but here’s what we’re currently looking at:

• Flawless Imperial from 150k to 125k
• Royal from 250k to 150k
• Flawless Royal from 500k to 175k

We don’t have a time frame to share on when to expect these changes right now, but it is in the works. We’ll be sure to share additional news as soon as we can, and we hope this heads up helps!
