Gems in the game give your weapons and gear special buffs. In this guide, we will discuss everything you need to know about how to use gem sockets to place gems on your gear.
New World: How to Use Gem Sockets
Go to your inventory screen where you can see gems you can use under the Jewelcrafting section. To place a gem on an item it must have a gem socket to make sure it has one before you try to use the gem.
Drag the gem you want to use into the item’s slot and attack the gem. It should be noted that if the item already has a gem you replace it with a new one, the currently applied gem will be destroyed.
Once you place the gem on the item you will get all the buffs and bonuses provided by the gem. If you don’t have items with gem sockets you craft them in the Forge.
You’ll need to have the right crafting materials to craft items. While crafting your chances of getting a gem socket item are increased if you use Special Items and Azoth.
