jewels

General Discussion
one thing i would like to see besides gems is the return of jewels. i am sure they will not be in the vanilla but i truly hope they return eventually. the complete random nature of jewels made them awesome little item
Meh not a big loss.
Yeah jewels became pretty much useless in D2.
Skulls?

We used up all the skulls in D2. The mobs have adapted and now use a paper mache mesh to hold their brains in.

No more skulls.

That would explain the brain smoothie that is created when I so much as cough on some of these guys...

The IAS jewels were useful in D2

the 40% enhanced damage and 15% increased attack speed were more then useful

40%ed and 15 max damage
15% all resistances and 15 ias

there were plenty of useful jewels
In my 5+ years of playing D2 I have never found a useful non-unique jewel. Their stats are almost always overpowered by a rune, gem, or runeword for a socketed item.

So I'm with Onetwo..not a big loss here.

Just because something was useless/underpowered in D2 does not mean it has to be in D3. Expand your horizons.
I definitely want to see Jewel's return. They are likely to change how they function in D3, but it is still a game system that I enjoyed and found fun and useful. I am confident we will see some form of them in an expansion. Just like Charms.

I see what you're saying, and my current thought is that I wouldn't mind seeing them return IF they allowed the possibility of finding jewels with 200% ED, 60%MF, +300 psn dmg, etc...

What I didn't like about the original D2 jewels is that the above attributes just weren't possible..
