A possible alternative to Vortex?

So at the moment, the population seems to express a disinterest in acquiring and using vortex gems. Most find it pretty useless and not worth it for how hard it is to acquire one.

I came across the idea and I'm not sure if it had been suggested or even considered previously.

As of right now, 1 vortex gem gives you the ability to latch a dr19/mr19 (tier 3) gem and get the tier 1 stat (mr7/dr7).

I was thinking maybe granting players the option to use 3 vortex gems on an item to get the full tier 3.
So one tier upgrade per gem.

ie.
Plate mail mr56. Use 1 vortex gem and mr19 to get MR+7 bonus into Mr63.
Plate mail mr63. Use 2nd vortex gem and mr19 to get mr+7 bonus into mr70.
Plate mail mr70. Use 3rd vortex gem and mr19 to get mr+7 bonus into mr77.

I think it should be
Plate mail mr56. Use 1 vortex gem and mr19 to get tier 1 bonus MR+8 (Mr 64)
Plate mail mr56 Use 2nd vortex gem and mr19 to get tier 2 bonus Mr+14 (Mr70)
Plate mail mr56. Use 3rd vortex gem and mr19 to get tier 3 bonus Mr+19 (Mr75)

Right, so you think people don't care too much about vortex gems because they are too rare, so you suggest increasing the amount of vortex gems needed? I fail to see any logic in this suggestion.

You fail to see the logic because you yourself lack it.
I said people consider vortex not as WORTHY because its only 7% bonus. As hard as it is to find one, if people really wanted that extra +19 bonus as before, they have to work that much harder to get 3. They could always opt to make every piece a tier one upgrade, then upgrade piece by piece into tier 2. Do take into account that it is VERY difficult to acquire vortex gems, and that it would require 3x4 = 12 vortex to get a full +19 on each item, plus 12 DR/MR19 gems. This wouldn't really hurt people, but it would make using vortex a little bit more beneficial for what it's worth.
