Path Of Exile Tips For Three Gem Sockets

Path of Exile is everything refreshing about the hack-n-slash genre. Not only does it do everything that made Diablo 2 right but it stays away from everything that Diablo 3 did wrong. Grinding Gear Games put nearly 7 years into the development of Path of Exile with a large span of it being a "forever beta" till finally launching early 2013 and it pulled in a huge audience. With an immersive world, massive talent trees to customize your character, constant updates to keep the fans entertained and it's free-to-play, why wouldn't any Diablo fan join in? Path of Exile is the perfect addition for any hack-n-slash fan's gaming shelf.

Gem slots are a very cool feature in Path of Exile. As long as you meet the requirements, you can slot a gem into an item or weapon in order to access its ability. This is basically how you get magic and other powers in the game.The great thing is, unlike the skill tree, these decisions are not permanent.

You have 3 types of sockets and gems: red, blue and green. A gem can only be placed in a socket of the same coulour, logic right? Now, you have linked sockets, and these are important for support gems, support gems don’t give you another spell, but they empower the spells that are in sockets linked to their sockets. A support gem only supports gems that are of the same colour.

You can experiment all you want. Try magic attacks, passive abilities, or my personal favorite, summoning creatures to do your bidding. You can dabble in many types or specialize in one ability type. The important thing to know is that if you switch armor or weapon, it could affect what gems you can utilize. That favorite blue gem of yours is great now, but if you use this much better melee weapon, suddenly you have no blue gem slot.

Of course you can have two weapon loadouts equipped at a time and switch between them on the fly, so with a little fiddling you may still be able to get that perfect combination that you want.

If you see an item drop that has 3 linked gem sockets of different colors pick it up and sell it to a vendor for a Chromatic Orb. Even though Chromatics are fairly easy to come by chances are you will need a lot of them, and of course you can trade them for something more useful if you have extra.
