How to Find and Socket Gems in Diablo 4

Diablo 4, the latest installment in Blizzard’s popular action role-playing game series is already highly anticipated by gamers everywhere. One of the key features of Diablo 4 that is unique from previous games is its more complex gem system, providing more customization options for players. In this article, we’ll go through everything you need to know about gems in Diablo 4 and how to socket them.

Firstly, finding gems in Diablo 4 can be done through a variety of activities such as completing quests and killing enemies which drop loot. Gems come in different levels of rarity with higher-level gems having more powerful effects than lower ones so keep an eye out for these drops.

Once you have acquired some Gems, it’s time to Socket them into your equipment. To do this open up your inventory and find the piece of gear you want to socket then right-click it. This will bring up a window showing any sockets available on that item.

To place a gem into one of these sockets, simply drag the gem from your inventory over to the corresponding location on the item’s window and release when it highlights with a green outline. Once inserted remember that gems are locked into that slot until removed or overridden with another.

It’s important not always just to fill every available socket though as they will only provide benefits if fitted properly according to their color correspondences:

– Red Sockets generally focus on Attack.
– Green Sockets boost Defense stats.
– Blue Sockets improve Skills or Magic.
– White (non-colored) Sockets lessen restrictions or penalties imposed by other Colors

For example: For armor implements used by close-range fighters such as Barbarians and Crusaders – matching red gems would grant an increase in strength boosting their attack power while Defense-minded classes like Druids or Monks might benefit from placing green colored Gems; increasing resilience against hits taken instead.

Also something else worth noting is Gear with multiple sockets appear later along your adventure and have a higher potential item level. This means they usually have better stats and higher benefits to your character when compared to lower-level gear.

To conclude socketing gems in Diablo 4 is an excellent way of boosting your characters abilities while offering plenty of room for customization. By taking the time to seek out high rarity Gems per their corresponding color coordination it’s possible to maximize the effect that each placed Gem has while minimizing costs or diminishing returns when limited by slots available. So stay vigilant in seeking out powerful Gems, experiment with different combinations and tailor your gear specifically for your playing style!
