Please read the following informations carefully
With the upcoming Arcadia Update the Socket System gets reworked. Beforehand we want to inform you about the following changes which are part of the rework:
Anything related to socketing and the socketing process will be removed from the production system. Any socketing items will become obsolete with the Arcadia Launch. Leftover socketing items will become sellable to NPC shops. For the machinery profession 3 new recipes will be added.
The currently socketed socket cards will be automatically transformed into new cards which are coming with the new system. This is the case for any Socket Card (Socket 1 and Socket 2) except of the Galaxia Skill Cards.
For Socket 1 cards the new stats will be matching the old stats or maybe slightly better.
For Socket 2 cards (Element Cards) your socketed socket cards will be transformed into new cards but the cards of the new reworked element system can't be compared to the old ones.
With the Arcadia Update launch all Socket Cards (except the Galaxia Skill Cards) which are not socketed on equip will become obsolete. This includes any socket card stored in inventory, guild vault, character vault, account vault, open market, mail system. All unsocketed cards which are affected by this will become sellable to NPC shops.
This steps have been decided by the Dragon Saga team to rebalance the game and it's economy after the rampant duping in the past. Please consider this information as a friendly reminder to socket all socket cards you want to keep. More informations about the new systems will be available with the Arcadia Update launch.
A little sneak peak of the new socketing system can be seen in the August Episode of the Dragon Talk with Alteris at https://youtu.be/Z2mwzfvxqNs).
