The Affliction League Reveal brings new Transfigured Gems, replacing Alternate Quality Gems, Labyrinth Helmet Enchantments and the outdated Threshold Jewels. GGG has just released the last batch of these Gems so we now have all 100+ Gems to go over (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4 and Part 5). For more information on which to use and on what build, see our recently released Affliction League Mega Post. Let's get into the Gems.
Active Skills in Path of Exile now have new Transfigured versions obtained from the Divine Font. These significantly change skill functionality. For example; Ball Lightning is a projectile duration skill which travels away from you in a line dealing damage to enemies in its radius every 150ms. The Transfigured qualities modify how the skill moves. Ball Lightning of Static creates stationary orbs which zap enemies, whereas Ball Lightning of Orbiting rotates around your character.
Note: Not all Transfigured Gems are released! From the GGG RAQ:
If you're releasing the Transfigured Gems alphabetically, why are some gems missing?
Not all the Transfigured Gems are quite ready yet. We'll post them when they're ready though!

On the Path of Exile Reddit, u/hfok put together an excellent side-by-side slide comparison of the new and old gems. This is the 20/20 normal vs 20/20 Transfigured gem from the showcase! He originally made the Gem Comparison Slides for his stream but was kind enough to share it with the community. Go show him some love for creating such a useful resource!
