Quick question about Role gem accessories...

#1Chaos-StrikerPosted 5/1/2012 1:25:28 PM

Say I equipped two Blaster's Sapphires: would both role bonus enhancements stack? Or just the one? And does this work for all same-gem set-ups? (i.e.- two Healer Emeralds or two Supporter Amethysts)

And while I'm at it I might as well also ask if you equip two different gems if only one of the enhancements will take effect (like the first one I equip or something) or both roles are enhanced like I've always believed?

I already know the amount of the bonuses from my SG but can't find this answer around the net, so any help is appreciated!

Just posted this elsewhere:

"NEVER use Berserker's Ruby. Only Impeder's Opal (a bit) and Supporter's Amethyst (a bit) can ever be used for anything; the others are almost totally useless and should never be touched for any reason!

Go to those threads and read about accessories."

Also, look at the capacity costs for those things. You can't naturally equip two of them, anyway. >_> If you could, I don't know about two of the same, but there's no reason why two different gems shouldn't work; it's not like equipping a Power Wristband and a Magician's Mark only raises your STR. . . -_-

I am going to guess that the bonuses... do not stack and you might be able to get both enhancements if you equip two different gems. There's no reason for the effects of one gem to be canceled out from the other unless for some reason there's a 'lock' on doing so...

Perhaps you can do some testing and be a source of information for this? ;)

Someone answered the stacking thing on the Xbox Q&A:
The role bonus accessories only apply to the character that has the item equipped and only while they are in said role. It does not stack and does not help other party members whatsoever, the same goes for the passive role bonuses obtained through the crysterium.

However, accessories that improve spoils(gil/items/weapons)/feral links/crystal drops do stack and are always active.

This is false. Gilfinder abilities stack. Item Scavenger/Collector abilities take the most highly-ranked selection that is active and go with that alone (i.e. If you have Item Scavenger MAX, your monster's Item Scavenger II means nothing, and only one Item Collector works at a time.), so multiple Dur. CCs are only good for more gil.
