    I heard an unconfirmed report saying that you can't have the same unique jewel in different items. For example, if you get a unique jewel and socket it, then you can't get another of the same jewel and put it in a different item unless you destroy the socketed item or overwrite the original unique jewel by resocketing.

    This is counterintuitive to me given how jewels are consumed by items. I am looking for confirmation. I had planned to grind out 4 of the same unique pvp jewel.

    It makes sense that if the jewel is unique that you can only have one. I would guess that what you heard is true. Socketing a jewel is the same as equiping an item. Its basically just another trinket slot.

    I was actually looking for confirmation of the fact of the matter, not for opinions about what that fact might be. Popular opinion doesn't always reflect reality (e.g. epic flying mount faction discounts).

    i just had a unique jewel drop that i had equipped, i couldn't loot it. so it would seem that unique really means unique.

    Thanks.

    My plan is now to grind 2 of the 3 caster pvp jewels, one of which I have already socketed so that will have to go to waste. I want to stack this item with the best pvp jewels:
