Path of Exile 2 pushes action RPG technology to the absolute limit with ‘meta gems’ that you socket other gems into

World of Warcraft has a category of items called meta gems, which go in special gem slots and can only be equipped if you have a specific number of other gems already slotted into your gear. They can have powerful bonuses, but in practice they mostly just make me frustrated enough to yell at my computer as I trek to the auction house to buy another round of color coordinated gold sinks.

Path of Exile 2, shown off in detail today at ExileCon, also has meta gems, but they’re part of a revamped skill system that throws away item links in lieu of skill gems that you socket into… more gems.
