    Lightbulb Inscribed Gems to Relics? Don't want to lose hundreds of gems and progress!

    Will it be possible to transform inscribed gems into relics? I have dozens of gems with many on high counts (2000+ kills and stuff like this).
    Also it feels a bit greedy if you expect people like me to pay shards for the counters we already own. I must know if I should save the shards and wait for an update allowing to transform the inscribed gems.
    Starting over with the relics like kill counts also sucks..
    I mean i spent alot of money for all the inscribed gems and now they gonna be useless???
    I have some suggestions to handle a few problems that can occur on a approaching the implementation:

    - Allow to extract gems for free (no hammer needed); the extracted gems will be untradable
    - Give gems an option to be added(consumed) to a matching hero having the gem-specific relic
    - If the relic was already bought from shards, update the count (relic state + gem state) and return the shards (relic cost)
    - If the relic does not exist on the target hero, simply add it to the hero and update the counter

    I know you dota devs do not answer often here... I really need to know if something like this will be possible, so I don't have to "waste" my shards on my favourite heroes which already have plenty of gems.
    I would be really upset, if I spent all the money on incribed gems for nothing now.
    Please answer

    Since the relics seem to be in fact the same data-objects (socketed gems have the new relic images and "blade fury dmg gem" shows ingame progress as relics do) as the gems before, I hope it will not take too much time to find a solution for the conversion.
    I would be really upset, if you want to get extra money for the conversion. I already payed for it and it's basicly the same functionality.
    Please ask your community manager to give us an update if something like this is in development. I have alot of inscribed gems (for example ~3500 kills on pugna) which I'd like to convert into relics.

    Maybe a quicker implementation for now would be:
    - add a rightclick-menu-entry to inscribed items "Convert gems to Relics"
    - "Do you really want to convert the gems? Gem A, B and C will be destroyed and the relic A, B and C will be added to [hero]. All counts will be migrated."
    - give Shards to the player if the relic already exists on the hero (10.000 for gold, 800 for others)
