Mechanics

Warning: The Inspired Learning jewel will only activate if it is placed in one of the jewel sockets shown in the image.

Upon killing a rare monster, the character gains one of its modifiers for the next 20 seconds.

The following modifiers can not be gained by characters:

  • FracturedFractured
    Nemesis
  • Inner TreasureInner Treasure
    Nemesis
    Monster drops 1 additional Unique Item (Hidden)
  • Soul ConduitSoul Conduit
    Nemesis
    Corpse can not be destroyed (Hidden)
    Can not be dominated (Hidden)

Inspired Learning will not work if socketed in Cluster Jewel sockets (large sockets). There are 6 sockets in which Inspired Learning can be placed: the socket near each of the Duelist, Ranger, Shadow, Templar, and Witch start locations and one near the Perfect Agony Keystone.

Effects

Common mods that players can gain from killing rare enemies are listed in the table below. It is possible to gain many of these mods at once, if players can consistently kill rare enemies, therefore, it is possible to activate boosted damage and defensiveness.

Note: It is not possible to gain any "negative" mods from enemies such as curses or hexes. Mods gained will always have a positive effect either to improve the player's defense or offensive capability.
