  • Ethereal Gem Socket for Gear Items

    Hey guys,
    I just found the rare Sandking item "Vestigial Wings of the Ancient Sovereign" and it has an empty socket with the notice "Ethereal" (See Screenshot: 2013-12-16_00003.jpg )

    So from what I know, you only can use ethereal gems on couriers and it should come with a socket for color... Unfortunately I have no ethereal gems to check if they are eligable (and I don't wanna buy or trade one only to test it, since they are so expensive).

    I'm wondering now if they will have an update which makes us able to use ethereal gems on items, but what would that do to the quality and to the ingame appearance? Particle effects on items seems very unlikely and I have no idea what else they could do.
    A more likely idea would be that they will add a new kind of gem in a future update which can be placed into these sockets. Maybe the ethereal notice is only a place holder, but I can't tell for now...

    Let me know if you have any ideas or information

    edit: oh sorry, just noticed that I've posted in the wrong section... typical beginner mistake I guess...
