    Is there any posted information about this? I know that enchanting will change but that has nothing to do with gem socketing.

    Even post-wipe, we can technically say that it is all a waste of time since it is a video game.... but it sure is darn entertaining... pre-wipe or post-wipe. ;)

    That's interesting because one of the publicly stated goals (and attractants) for removing attunement as an innate/glyph was to remove the negative aspect of the opposite attunement/vulnerability.
    If that's not going to happen, then... this was a net negative change for the players, imo, because it gives us less choice than what we had before.

    I guess I do not know the ultimate design, but I have no problem with a Gem socket that you choose to add having some negative effects to balance the positive. Skills that you earn only give positives for attunement, but this is not a skill, it is a fancy bauble on your weapon. [not meant to sound that bad, but I left it in anyways]

    Personally, I don't see any difference in the time spent increasing skills for better attunement and the time spent increasing crafting skills, collecting materials and crafting a weapon with gems for better attunement.

    I don't know how valid that argument really is. The amount of attunement that can be lost through gems is quite small compared to even one GM attunement previously. When you factor in the 4 different combinations that used to get penalized, the current total penalty has a pretty low cap.

    I'm not saying that i prefer gems decreasing attunement, but the negative is on a different magnitude than previously existed.

    True that. The only things I have left from my myriads of hours in SWG are warm memories, friendships, screenshots, and install disks.

    Wow, this got long. :p Probably belonged in the bug forum. I just spoke with the design team. Gems and enchanting are getting refactored, and the negative side-effects will likely be going away with them in the near future.

    It also affects the damage you deal.
