  • Hot to add Ethereal and Prismatic gems to courier?

    Ok i just destroyed my old drake to extract my Lotus blossom gems from him, then i uses artificers chisel to create 2 sockets but the problem is i can't add my gems to courier at all and this message appear "This gem cannot be placed in a socket of that type". Can anyone help me? Am i missing something.

    Yeah, you need to add those gems to an unusual courier, you can't make sockets on couriers for effects.
    I hate how Valve fails at giving clear information about stuff, much fail. Or maybe they do it on purpose so we spend money, those greedy jews.

      Well anyone who thinks couriers can be socketed the same way items can is a dimwit who knows nothing about unusual courier and effect rarity. I agree the information on socketing is not clear, but please, if you are interested in collectors' vanity items, at least learn the basics and get an idea of how rare these things used to be before socketing. Obviously Valve won't screw over owners by making such couriers easily craftable after the socket patch.

        Well, they screwed up people with strange modifiers like me, the prices of my modified strange items dropped at least 20 keys, so why wouldn't they screw up couriers (they actually did if you think about it).
        But this isn't about that. It's about Valve selling stuff on the store without giving clear information in the patch notes,just to make people buy out of curiosity or miss-understanding. You shouldn't have to search the whole f..ing internet to find out how the stuff they put to sell works.

          Why release tool which can extract your gems out but not give one that can add gems to another courier? Its lame, and its nothing more than strategy to see how the trades and crafting will be going, so if we take a lot of gems out(which we did) i guess the price for the tool to put them back in will be ridiculously high= PROFIT!

          So greedy, its like it wasn't enough that i already destroyed my courier.

          Btw you don't need to explain me about couriers and effects rarity i had nearly all courier effects so far. I was actually lucky since i sold my 2 lotus chuckles long time ago, now i would be probably disappointed due to this change. Back on the topic i just wanted to swap gems from one courier to another and they never stated that you actually can't do that.

            depends on which courier you had initially, my courier went up by 20 keys instead. Actually... I'm surprise a modded Item could be e worth 20keys... is it because of an artificial value, can you like give me an example? Correct me if I'm wrong. It's like saying valve screwed over shadow essence traders prior to diretide. Nope, there's just an artificial demand for it. If you didn't already convert it into a shadow greevil, you're just a middle man. and we all know how Valve hates middlemen.

            Another example of a middleman getting screwed, those ppl that buy items online with free purchase codes for items that sold WAY more than the physical item itself. You can't say valve screwed the middleman, that's what you are in the first place, the middlemen, so you better know what's coming because you got no business to be there in the first place. They did try to "maintain" the price by making recipes almost not worth it to craft but, yeah genuine item holders did take a hit.

            I'm using the word "you" loosely, I don't mean it to mean anyone in particular, please don't get offended.

              Before the patch modifiers that you can get now for less then a dollar used to go for 2 up to 5 keys. A strange jugg mask was worth 4 keys, now all u need is to get a chissel and make the normal mask strange. This means that I paid a huge amount for something that I cant resell if I get bored of it for not even 10% of what I invested in it at the time.

                Truth be told Valve is not responsible for market value fluctuations, even if they themselves cause it. The current item scheme is way better than the previous one, so while I understand the frustration of vanity item holders, I am glad the current system is in place - it has a lot more flexibility and gives depth to the game.

                I guess you can try to make the most of this with buying effect gems now because when the artificer's brand recipe gets released (it currently isn't), effect gem demand will sore and prices will skyrocket.

                  ^ Agreed

                  Pls take note that Dota 2 isn't a 100% complete game even if it has "come out of beta". The new socketing system makes cosmetic items a whole lot more interesting and user-friendly. They're just making a huge change to IMPROVE the game. Think about it: If you want Valve to keep the previous system, even though they can improve it, just so that your items won't drop in value, isn't that simply SELFISHNESS? Trust me, a few more months later most of you will quit whining about the system, just try not to become hypocritical before you accept the socketing system.

                    Is there really no way to add ethereal gems to new couriers? I don't see a point to the gem chisel system if there isn't.

                      It was already answered. You cannot apply those gems to normal couriers. You can only apply them to unusual ones.

                        Ok, so new question. When is Valve going to fix this? If people are required to destroy their couriers in order to extract the gems they should be able to put it in whatever they want.

                          you can always buy the courier you want from market with the shittiest effect. Replace its original gems with yours and problem solved.
