"The sockets are prismatic, meaning that you can attach any color gem." FAIL. There's no such thing as a prismatic socket, only sockets without socket bonuses. You can put whatever color gem you like in any socket, you just lose the bonus if they don't match. It's ridiculous that someone who's paid to know about the game doesn't understand mechanics from 2 years ago.

I thought it apparent that the author meant "you can attach any color gem without compromising any socket bonuses". Perhaps the wording could have been clearer, but perhaps it is also not necessary to spell out every obvious detail to an audience that already understands most of the game.

There are prismatic sockets in-game, the belt buckle being one of them. You'd be surprised at the number of people in-game who hasn't realized that they don't have to stick to whatever color a particular socket is (including prismatics). For all of a week or so, when I got my first belt buckle, I did have a prismatic gem equipped because I didn't know better (and thought it was similar to meta sockets). So yes, possibly bad wording on the point of the author, but those sockets ARE prismatic.
