I wonder if the new background shows the exodus of physical based players on their sojourn out of the realm.

That would be some background

So there are unstable melee gems in the event, but not in the update?

The effectiveness of gems of that color will be reduced by 20%. This allows players to favor one particular attribute over another depending on their current gem layout.

Since you're here...why aren't there any physical gems in the update? Not the tragick ones, the new T8s? A few already asking this question in the update thread.

Maybe I am missing something, but the numbers make no sense. In my current mage build, a magic gem would increase me from 1064 to 1216 on that one gem. My current total magic is 20,330 which leads to an unmodified damage increase of 2011. From experience, that's maybe a gain of 5 damage.

To get that, I'm giving up 20% of about 6K crit, 1K dodge, and 5K haste (all rounded down to try to offset the non-gem part of those numbers). Or about 2400 points. It would NEVER be worth it.

Do you mean that it will reduce the effectiveness of the gems of that color ON THE SAME PIECE OF EQUIPMENT by 20%? If so, that would mean a 14% increase in one stat vs a 20% decrease of another assuming one gem each. Given diminishing returns though, it is much worse than that. The ONLY case I can think of where this makes any logical sense to do the tradeoff is when you have an OP Mage/Justi build that doesn't care about defense (true in today's PvE with enough might) and you could squeeze out a tiny bit of crit/haste. There isn't enough there to even begin to tweak my interest.. If I could do magic/melee with a reduction in blue, I might be slightly interested.
