  • Kinetic Gems for Immortal items are not finished yet

    This is not primarily about the Immortals from last year's big event.
    This year some of the items don't have the gems, such as the items for Axe and Lion.
    But others do have the gems and at least one of the gems if not more can be transferred to other items but do not work on those items.

    For example, you can buy the Sylvan Cascade gem for any Windranger's cape and after socketing it, you will neither get the custom icon nor the animation. Now, when I was first looking at my Death Prophet Immortal Item I was surprised that it had both a custom icon and a custom animation. I wondered if transferring the gem over would transfer both the icon and the animation or just the animation. Well, in the case of at least the Windranger Immortal Item, nothing is transferred over, meaning the gem does absolutely nothing.

    This needs a fix.

    This might indicate that items that have had their Kinetic Gems removed function normally, which could also be a problem that would need fixing.

    Like the immortals from last year, they should not have kinetic gems... Peolple are removing them and selling them on the market for people that don't know about it...

      This is very disappointing for me, I must say I absolutely hate the way some of these immortals have been made (especially the CM one, I mean what is up with that ugly piece of %&$#!), but with the gems I was hoping to just put (most of) the item effects on gear I did like. Using up hammers and chisels only to see nothing happening with my newly customized pieces makes me a real sad panda

          I like the immortal gem idea. Honestly I like the whole illusion-trail effect of the Windrunner cape, but I don't like the cape itself. I was disappointed to find the gem literally did nothing. Hopefully this'll be fixed.

            Totally agree with this sentiment. Why put kinetic gems on them? To trick your customers into buying chisels? Such a false promise.

            The items from last year look awesome. This year a lot of them quite frankly look silly. Last year I thought gems would be nice to have in case new items came that some people might prefer. I for one thought Vengeful Spirit's weapon was great, but someone else might like a newer weapon of hers better and want the animation for it. Or someone else might like this weapon itself but not its animation.

            The state of these items is strange. Dragonflies or whatever those things are in Death Prophet's new item make it seem quite fitting, and the fish morphing matches up with the water-colored weapon nicely, yet there is nothing to indicate that the items for Axe and Windranger shouldn't have working gems. There is nothing special about the animations for these items that couldn't logically be applied to other items of that hero in the same slot, unlike with the other two heroes' items. The odd thing is it's not Death Prophet and Lion that have missing gems, but Lion and Axe. It just so happens that the ones that do have gems don't have working gems.

            It's possible that opinions are quite conflicted in all this, but I really hope I'll be able to benefit from the gem for Windranger's cape on my white cape.

            Reminds me of Dragon Ball.

              Im honestly confused about the extremely rares, im talking about warlock, Only changes its 3rd ability (aoe slow) and thats it. While sniper gets 2 abilities changed, new attack animation, and new attack sound.

              Am i the only one who think Valve intended sniper's immortal item to be an extremely rare?

                I'm not the only one who put WR's gem to other cape and was surprised that it does not work? The same wih DP and CM, but those two have this new animations, but doen't have skill effect and skill icon. Its bug or what? Or gem for CM transfer only animations (without skill icon and effect?)

                  Reminder: Kinetic Gems change the animations on heroes. Gems that change the particle effects (spell effects) on heroes are called Mastery Gems. So far the only Mastery Gem and thus the only transferable spell effect present in the game is Northlight Illuminance for KotL.

                  So for the new Immortal items, Kinetic Gems only contain custom animations, and not spell effects. Since they don't have Mastery Gems, the particle effects of the Immortal items can't be transfered to any other item.

                    Is it fixed?

                    I would love to add Sylvan Cascade in Sparrowhawk cape

                      I guess they're not going to fix it. Sad considering how ugly the items are this year around.

                        Agree, confirm... I hate sniper's immortal rifle, but effects are so epic! Such a disappointment to see, I wasted my last hammer!
