Common Problems

  • I can't equip my boots after I put a gem in the socket
  • Getting message "You can only equip 1 item in the Kraken's Eye category" when I try to equip my new ring

Items which say that they are "Unique-Equip" in the tool tip can only be equipped in one active slot at a time. Trying to equip a second one gives you an error. This also applies to gems. If you are trying to equip a second item that has a Unique-Equip gem in it, you will get a red error message telling you that you can only equip one of them. 

You can replace gems in any item by putting another in the same slot, but it will destroy the gem that is currently socketed.
