This patch changes the unsocketing cost of gems and adds daily login chests as well as other fixes.


Producer's Note

This week has a few big game changes.

The first one is that we're making a big change to how Gems are unsocketed by effectively making them cost Cubits instead of Flux. The reason for this change is that Gems were intended to feel more 'permanently' socketed for both Contests and powering up multiple classes for use.

We intend to support this change through a few other changes also showing up this week. First of all daily loot chests are being added. These chests are earned once a day just by logging in and have many Gem-related rewards, including boosters up through the coveted Ninth Life. We intend for these boxes to be another way to ensure steady progress powering up Gems, especially as players seek to power up multiple classes.

In addition the class Contests for the first few tiers no longer require a competition between players and have been changed to required 2500PR and 5000PR respectively. This is going to open them up to many more winners each week. Since we see the new daily chests as a way to acquire daily and weekly Gem boosters we've changed the second tier reward from the Ninth Life to 2 Empowered Gem boxes. These time-gated boxes are now more available for players who are able to power up multiple classes and means additional progress towards high quality Empowered Gems.
