Sockets & Gems in The War Within

The War Within expansion introduces new ways to add gem sockets to your gear, enhancing both PvE and PvP experiences. This guide will cover how to add these sockets, the types of gems available, and their benefits, allowing you to maximize your character's potential.

New Unique Gems in The War Within

Sockets are slots on gear that allow you to insert gems, providing additional bonuses on top of the item's original stats. Gems come in various types and can be replaced using the Item Socketing window. With the introduction of The War Within, you can now add even more sockets to your gear, significantly boosting its effectiveness.

How to Add Sockets in The War Within

To add sockets, you'll need one of two new items:

Magnificent Jeweler's Setting (PvE)

This item adds sockets to PvE gear, specifically Rings and Necks. Since you can equip two Rings and one Neck, you can potentially add six new gems, greatly enhancing your gear for PvE activities by increasing primary stats, critical hit chance, movement speed, and more.

Vicious Jeweler's Setting (PvP)

This item is used to add sockets to PvP gear and can be applied to a wider range of items, including Helms, Necks, Rings, Belts, and Bracers. This allows you to add up to nine gems, significantly boosting your PvP build with improved primary and secondary stats.
