    The new artifacts gems/jewels are a good idea, but there are a trade off on each choice and some options are weak, i made a list for that based on personal/friends feedback;


    JEWELS:

    Imbued Jewel of the Storm: +3% Air Damage (Acara’s Plate Helm of Defiance)
    Why someone will change 20 air attunement for 3% air damage. Change it for some attunement + air magic stun effectiveness

    Imbued Jewel of the Healer: +15% Life Range and Radius (Ring of Life)
    The range is already good, healer need more healing power i suggest: +5% life effectiveness + 8 life attunement.

    Imbued Jewel of Gust: +15% Gust Chance (Ring of Air)
    One of the worst bonus, change attunement for gust chance i don´t see any build using this. Maybe some lightning damage + air attunement

    Imbued Jewel of Shadow Form: +150% Shadow Form Length (Shard of Night)]
    What about some shooting star damage + 8 moon attunement

    Imbued Jewel of the Flame Fist: +15% Flame Fist Damage (Ring of Fire)
    Imbued Jewel of the Lich Kind: +15% Death Field Power (Ring of the Lich Kind)
    Imbued Jewel of the Stone Fist: +15% Stone Fist Damage (Ring of Earth)
    Imbued Jewel of Blindness: +10% Blind Power (Ring of the Sun)
    Imbued Jewel of Death Touch: +15% Death Touch Damage (Ring of Death)
    Almost usefull, the damage could be down to 10%, some attunement added and some elemental resistance debuff like ( +10% damage + 5 Attunement - 5 target resistance)

    Imbued Jewel of the Frogkin: +0.5 Jump Strength, +2 Combat Dodge Modifier (Ring of the Frogkin)
    Weak dodge modifier should be 5/8 and junt strength raised a little 0,8

    Imbued Jewel of the Silent Bandit: +100% Silent Movement Duration Bonus (Leather Bandit Boots)
    Added somenthing cool related to subterfuge like sneak attack damage +20% and the silent bonus

    Imbued Jewel of the Mouse: -20% Aggro Boost (Ring of the Mouse)
    -20% aggro + 3% move rate


    GEMS:
    Imbued Gem of Polearm Combat: +10 Polearm Combat (Halberd of the Sun)
    Polearm combat only affect autoattacks/ charged some cool effect like +0,5 meter melee range could be better.

    Imbued Gem of the Unconfused: +20% Confusion Resistance (Daemon Trident)
    Don´t worth there are several better options like base damage, attunement.. should be somenting polearm related like +% damage in bleed effect

    Imbued Gem of the Bludgeon Combat: +10 Bludgeon Combat (Two-handed Mace of Elemental Slaying)
    Don´t worth because only affects autoattacks, crushing blow and bludgeon stun duration is better.

    Imbued Gem of Wild Lightning: +1 Wild Lightning (Wand of Static Discharge)
    Imbued Gem of the Air Summoner: +20 Summon Air Elemental Power (Suutak’s Bluster) -
    Imbued Gem of the Death Summoner: +20 Summon Lich/Skeleton Power (Anapa’s Favor) -
    Imbued Gem of the Earth Summoner: +20 Summon Earth Elemental Power (Gaia’s Heart)
    Imbued Gem of the Fire Summoner: +20 Summon Fire Elemental Power (Vexlyn’s Spark)
    Imbued Gem of the Moon Summoner: +20 Summon Wisp Power (Aether Orb)
    Imbued Gem of the Sun Summoner: +20 Summon Phoenix Power (Ankh of Wala)
    Imbued Gem of the Water Summoner: +20 Summon Ice/Water Elemental Power (Frozen Tear of Titans)
    Elemental gems should have some attunement plus an effect like this gem does... the trade off of losing 12/20 attunment for a little power in summons

    Imbued Gem of the Stalwart Shield: +15% Shield Durability Effectiveness (Shield of Attraction)
    This os the most weak gem by far, should only be appied to shield and give +20% duration for deflect and boolster stance and block power

    @Elgarion This could be a very useful thread to balance a few underwhelming gems/jewels to provide more balanced use early on in the development of the gems/jewels instead of later. Some are cool but others... very meh and I'd be surprised if anyone ever used them.

    +10 Bladed Combat is useless? Give it range or slight armor penetration.

    The silent movement one is a great example. We lack rogues and a lot of players REALLY want to play this. Give the Jewel something sexy like 33% stealth bonus each (which factors into the sneak attack calculation) and a lot of players would be excited to use this.

    @Spinok could probably add a lot too.

    Focus battery necklace + 75 focus could use some focus % bonus maybe 50 raw focus and 1 % bonus to focus pool
    Ankh of sacrifice +1.5 focus /sec - focus regen and some 15 life attune
    Wand of undying embers - 7.5% fire speed - just dont see people replacing 25 fire attune for 7.5 fire speed so maybe add some fire attune to it also 10 attune maybe
