Selling The Hungry Loop to a vendor returns any consumed support gems.


The Hungry Loop consumes socketed support gems when they reach maximum level. Simply socketing a gem that already has the maximum level is not enough, the gem needs to be socketed in the ring before actually leveling the gem (by clicking the "+") to its maximum level for the ring consume the gem. Consequently all consumed gems can only result in a modifier of their natural maximum level; the +1 gem level effect from corruption can not be achieved since the Vaal Orb needs to be used after the gem hit its maximum level.[1]

When a support gem is consumed, the Hungry Loop gains a modifier that supports socketed skill gems with the maximum level of the consumed support. Gem quality is ignored. The Hungry Loop can consume up to four different support gems.
