Diablo 4 Devs Promise ‘Longer Term’ Fix for Inventory-Cluttering Gems

In a panel “Campfire Chat” discussion via Twitch and YouTube, Diablo 4 developers addressed one of the game’s more troubling issues: inventory chaos.

Many Diablo 4 players have found that endgame looting involves returning to the city multiple times to sell and store goods. The reason is that it is very messy. Foremost on the list of things that quickly fill a player’s limited inventory space are gems.

“Gems come in many colors, gems have many properties, and this can take up a lot of inventory space,” explained game director Joe Shelley.

Thankfully, Blizzard plans to address this issue in a future patch, in which case these upgrade materials will be completely removed from your inventory.

“The idea is to change how gems are obtained and put them on the shelf in the materials or currency tab instead of the inventory.”

“The idea is to change the way gems are obtained so that they are on the shelf in the materials or currency tab instead of the inventory. Use it sparingly,” Sherry said.

This goes a long way to alleviating some of the frustration associated with multiple teleports back to the city when completing a single dungeon, but players shouldn’t expect that alleviation in the near future. True to its pre-release message, Blizzard will fix only the most critical issues, focus on creating new content, and add quality of life improvements in later updates.

“We’re hoping to make it happen around season two,” Shelley said.

In the meantime, we have plenty of updates in store including major pre-Season 1 patches that players can look forward to.
