This is a modification of the gems through the use of hex. Though it is rare and less common for people who use this tool. This is usually done by finding the block of code derived especially for the items sockets, then the socket is given affixes, usually of a sort of weapon damage multiplier or damage addition. Usually upon dropping these gems in a game allows them to be traded with other players but if the gems are not socketed into the gear before leaving the game there is a 38.4% chance of the item reverting due to activity of the gems and usage of it, for example I had made a ruby by locating the offset in HxD. Though since I had known the blocks of code being that the game uses them to hold data for the slot and the specifications of the items, I could alter them by as one of my attempts were to infinitely socket the gem with marquise rubies repeatedly until the game could not handle over 32 gems socketed into it. Though there are other ways to make it easier, I just found this method to be quick and simple instead of constantly adding a bunch of effects to reach my desired amount, and to make things interesting; the game may limit attributes, but sockets can be identified as block extenders allowing infinite capacity (relatively speaking). Though 32 was my max before crashing the game, and my damage showed up as 1,059,388.8 so it is possible.
