Gems are a type of pluggable D2R Ladder Items in Diablo 2 Resurrected. As you progress on your quest to take down Diablo and his tyrannical horror band, you'll start accumulating a full set of insertable gems that can be added to your armor and weapons to boost stats.
Diablo 2 Resurrected has seven different gem types divided into five different tiers. Chipped is the lowest and Perfect is the highest. While they can't compare to D2R Runes, they're good for boosting character stats.
Each D2R Gem type provides players with different properties when embedded in different parts of the kit. So putting a gem in your weapon will get different properties than welding it into your body armor.
Beginner players may get an inventory full of broken gems. It is worth mentioning that combining three gems of the same rank to obtain a gem of a higher rank, the Horadric Cube combines these into a sparkling new perfect gem.
D2R Gems may be upgraded in Gem Shrines. However, you can't choose improved gems, and if you don't have gems in your inventory, you'll get random shards. The Horadric Cube is the more reliable method, and it's worth finding a Gem Shrines.
How to remove D2R Gems
Removing gems in Diablo 2 Resurrected again requires your Horadric Cube along with a few other ingredients when we accidentally add gems we shouldn't have, or we can make more advanced ones.
To remove gems:
Open the Horadric Cube
Insert the socketed item, as well as a Hel Rune and a Scroll of Town Portal.
Scrolls of Town Portal are relatively common and can be bought from most store NPCs in major cities.
The Hel Rune is much harder to get but can be obtained by defeating the Countess in Act 1 on Nightmare and above, or by completing Hell’s Forge on Hell.
Make sure you want to remove it, as it will be destroyed during the removal process. The above is the guide about gems, if you want to make more advanced item attributes, Horadric Cube is still indispensable.
