Death’s Prophet’s Gift: Jewelry Socketing coming to RoS?


Thanks to Nobbie for sending word of an allegedly leaked in the newly-released Chinese version of Diablo 3, here’s a screenshot of a new type of DiabloWikiGift of Ramaladni, which would be used to answer a common player prayer by adding a socket to jewelry.

The translation reads:

Death Prophet’s Gift: Use this item and select an unsocketed jewelry to add a socket.

Assuming this isn’t an outright hoax, it’s not clear if this is a leak of a future object (Next patch? Expansion #2?), or if it’s something specific to the F2P, semi-P2W version of the game recently launched in the Russian and Chinese markets. From the description it sounds like a free fifth affix on jewelry, which would add quite a bit more power creep, of the most delightful kind.

Death’s Prophet’s Gift: Jewelry Socketing coming to RoS? I’m all for this, and not just because I’ve had terrible luck finding any decent jewelry so far this season, to the point that even a DPG wouldn’t have given me a well-equipped neck. And yeah, it would create a whole new level of power creep, but we’ve got so much of that already in Patch 2.2 that a little more wouldn’t see that big a deal?

  1. I think if Blizz were to implement this, they should just make the changes to Ramaladni’s instead.

  2. man this would be op @@ 🙂 i call hoax tho

  3. “or if it’s something specific to the F2P, semi-P2W version of the game recently launched in the Russian and Chinese markets.”

    Wut? Russian market? Where did you get that idea from? Russia has the same model than the rest of the world …

    • Bliz has mentioned russia and china as markets where the game was recently released in the f2p mode, with the buyable exp buffs and such. I’m not in the region and it was news to me, as I thought china and some other parts of asia were the only places with that model, and that the game had come out in Russia years ago.

      • “Bliz has mentioned russia and china as markets where the game was recently released in the f2p mode”

        Didn’t seen this. Source? (i think it’s just speculations here and there, materialized as “known fact”)

        Otherwise: our russian community manager makes exactly same (translated) statement http://eu.battle.net/d3/ru/forum/topic/13686010602 about datamined F2P elements (it’s not for our Europe region), as for others here http://diablo.incgamers.com/blog/comments/microtransactions-coming-diablo-3-asian-realm

        (For Blizz in terms of business (model), servers and support Russia is part of European region.)

      • The news article still states false facts (about Russia being free to play) even though you have actually players who claim they play in Russia in your comments who tell you its wrong.

        Either provide a source or change the article – otherwise more people will repeat that nonsense and you did not inform but confuse 🙂

    • Hi. I’m from Russia(Saint Petersburg). We are playing in the Europe realm and some of us, I guess, in the American realm. And no other realms. No Asian, Korean or special-for-former-USSR-countries realm.
      But mostly we have special version(cheaper, price in rubles) with the only language – russian. No other differences, just a language limitation

  4. YES! I’ve been saying for months there needs to be gifts for jewerly and armor. Looks like we’re getting at least one. I still hope there’s a gift for helm/chest/pants being that everyone ends up with sockets anyways there’s no reason not to make a gift for em.

  5. > semi-P2W version of the game recently launched in the Russian and Chinese markets

    Hey, where have you seen this in Russia? We have a simple pay-to-play model just like most of the world.

  6. My bet is D3X2, as described in the blog. ^^

  7. Recolor of existing item, makes me suspicious.

  8. Why stop at add socket to rings? Why not have a gift that enables You to add a socket to any item?
