Blizzard has announced plans to overhaul a few of Diablo III’s Legendary Gems with the release of update 2.4.1.

“As we mentioned, some gems simply weren?t falling into one of the above categories or, if they were, weren?t serving their function as well as they could be,” Blizzard has explained. “While we aren?t updating every Legendary Gem that might need a little help (and it?s possible we?ll re-examine other gems in the future), there are quite a few that stuck out to us as either needing more clearly defined roles or just that layer of new polish to keep them up to date in a Sanctuary that?s evolved over time.”

Some of the changes include: Increasing the amount of damage reduction for pets from the Enforcer gem, making it so the Gogok of Swiftness grants a stack of swiftness with each attack, increasing the damage of Teardrop of the Starweaver, and completely redesigning Taeguk.

Update 2.4.1 also includes a number of changes that should help improve server and gameplay performance

“These aren?t the only changes coming, so if you haven?t already, be sure to log into the PTR, try out some (or all) of these changes, and let us know your thoughts,” the developer added. “It?s important to us that the community has a chance to get their hands on these shiny baubles and give them a go. Your feedback is some of the most valuable loot we could hope to have drop, and we look forward to hearing what you have to say!”
