Teaching you how to add gems to your gear.
Since this seems to be a frequently asked question, I figured a helpful guide with pictures was in order. Hope this helps!
First, when you want to Socket something, like a weapon, make sure that you have all the necessary items--including the item, socketing rods, and the appropriate gem. Keep in mind that different gems only fit in certain items. (i.e. Weapons, body, hands, feet, head, accessories, et cetera)
They also give different properties:
And in different amounts depending on the gems level, such as the Ruby Gem:
*Ruby Gem Lvl 1 gives +2 PATK
*Ruby Gem Lvl 2 gives +4 PATK
*Ruby Gem Lvl 3 gives +7 PATK
*Ruby Gem Lvl 4 gives + 12 PATK
and so on for each respective gem and level...
After you are sure that you have all the correct items, head to your inventory and click on the "Socket" button on the right side of the window.
This will bring up the socketing screen. Here, click and drag the item to be socketed--in this picture, the bow. Drop it into the equipment slot.
Now--and here seems to be the part where everyone gets tripped up--you click on the (\) as indicated in the following picture. You'll now see a socketing rod pop up in the bottom box; note here that it will tell you how many socketing rods it will take to open a socket in this item. If the number is red, then you do not have enough socketing rods. Now, click the "Add Socket" button to open this socket.
Now that you have a free socket up, click and drag the desired--and correct--gem to the open socketing slot and drop it there.
This will prompt a window to open to confirm that you want to socket this gem to the item. If you do, click yes. If you have made a mistake, click no.
If you have chosen "Yes", then your newly socketing equipment will have a new set of stats at the bottom of the stat screen when you hover over!
Please keep in mind that with each new socket that you open after the first, the amount of Socketing Rods needed will increase. Happy upgrading! v-n.n
EDIT: As commented on below, each weapon does have a gem level requirement to be used. Below are examples of two bows of two different levels, each showing their respective gem level restrictions:
Lvl 1 Bow has a Lvl 2 Gem Restriction
Lvl 31 Bow has a Lvl 6 Gem Restriction
