Catalyst not transferring sockets

My current helm has leech and a socket, but when I put it in the creation catalyst, the tier helm in the preview window has no socket on it, but it does show the leech. Is this a bug, visual glitch, or intentional? I have not transformed my helm yet, since I don’t want to lose the socket on it.

My helm socket was added by a vault token.

Its because the original item didnt proc with a socket spot. So technically you have an enchant/gem slot on the current helm. Not a helm with a gem slot

…except that’s not how the Creation Catalyst worked during Shadowlands: If you had a manually added socket on a piece of gear and converted it into tier, it kept the socket.

Stands to reason that the DF Catalyst should do the same.

If you don’t think it is working as intended, file a bug report. If you think it is working as intended, give feedback about any change you feel is appropriate.

I went ahead and converted the helm to tier, hoping that the preview was wrong, but the socket did not carry over.
I am still unsure if it’s a bug or intended, but went and filed a bug report just in case.


I’m seeing this on the bug report - so I believe it’s a known issue. No other info on this one at the moment.
