A months worth of TOPAZ farming GOOOONE in 15 rolls(1)Category: ItemsSeptember-15-2014 5:06 AM PDT (4 years ago) Go to Blizzard forum post
So over the last month i had saved up around 125 marquise topaz from general farming after they last went to zero in my stash (I have thousands of rubies, emeralds and diamonds). I just blew a months work of work in about 1 minute trying to roll a socket on a unity ring, to enjoy your new patch 2.1 content...... LEGENDARY GEMS (the jewel in the crown of 2.1), 15 rolls later no socket ( ok fine its RNG, i accept that)...........

But why can't i use my other Gems to keep rolling for a socket (ive got thousands just sitting there, not ever going to be used), I want to play your game blizzard with its brand new features, but you wont let me with your bad game mechanics. pls, pls, pls fix this. This is the biggest problem with the game right now.

you've gone and made leg gems a major part of the game. but we cant enjoy it because we need to use the worst iterated mechanics in the game to do so.

Any kind of crafting done in large amounts (for example, rolling for a socket on Rings and Amulets) is going to consume resources to the point where they risk being depleted, which is fine on its own and an intended result. After all, nothing adds value to a resource like running out of it.

That said, we agree that this is an issue and feel the root of it—in this case, never having enough Amethysts or Topazes—lies in the fact that there isn't a reliable method of replenishing the particular resource being consumed. To address that, we’re currently looking at ways we can allow players to increase their ability to obtain specific gems they need.

On the flip side, we’re also aware that some players wind up stockpiling certain kinds of gems because there aren't a lot of compelling reasons to use them. We want to implement more uses for those gems, and are looking at various ways to achieve that too.
