MMO-Champion - Atramedes Solo Kill, Epic Gem Patterns, TCG Art, MMO Report
Atramedes Solo Kill
Mionelol is continuing to kill bosses without any help, now moving into Tier 11 content. If you want to watch all 40 minutes, the uncut version is also available.



Patch 4.3: Epic Gem Patterns
The epic gem pattern vendor appeared recently on the PTR, hiding inside some boxes in Orgrimmar. Along with the epic gem cuts, he offers a Tome of Burning Jewels, which allows you to learn a random epic gem cut at the slightly discounted price of 4 Illustrious Jewelcrafter's Token each.

Don't forget to continue doing your Jewelcrafting daily if you want to get the epic gem cuts though, as they cost 5 Illustrious Jewelcrafter's Token each and there are already 51 recipes on the vendor. Keep in mind that Ghostcrawler warned that epic gems will only come from raids rarely, and maybe not even at all from the Looking for Raid difficulty level.



Trading Card Game Art Gallery Update
The Trading Card game art gallery has been updated with ten new pieces.

    How is he healing his pet if BM has no pet-healing based on damage abilities?

    Agree'd with skull, I'm sick of having to farm and farm and farm and farm an obnoxious amount of randomly prospected gems just to buy one recipe. Sure, alchemists have their random recipe thing, but its a once a day kinda deal. Sure, leatherworkers need a super rare drop, but they are not only actually doing something, but they don't really have much competition. Jewelcrafters instead take 3-5 days just to get one recipe, after farming for 20-30 minutes per day or blowing a huge amount of gold just to do A daily. I'd be fine with interesting dailies like the fishing or cooking, or even cutting a blue gem, but no, they want us to do the same 5 dailies for 2 years. I hate you too blizzard, I hate you too.

    He's playing marksmanship. And might be using the T5 2set bonus which heals pet from damage.

    He can't be using the T5 2-pc bonus, he's getting the T12 4-pc bonus Burning Adrenaline. T5 didn't have three extra slots. He's definitely dipped down into BM for Spirit Bond though, and very like imp mend pet. Imp mend pet on a Tenacity pet that's spec'd for all the +healing abilities is very powerful.

    Mione...how did you get 183k health? That is just plain insane. Also, nice 20k mend pet ticks.

    It makes sense that the random recipe cost fewer tokens. Unless you want to risk getting a crappy green/blue cut.

    What are you talking about? JC daily takes literary 10 seconds to complete. Unless you are unlucky and get the one quest that takes 2 minutes. I've got over 150 tokens, so I should know.

    So what it means (I assume) is that you can buy a random pattern for 4 tokens or a specific one for 5 tokens? And I also assume it will be like the inscription books? So after you buy the first few vitals amongst your guild, who on earth would bother buying them for 5 tokens when you can buy them for 4?

    As I said, maybe I'm just overthinking this and being stupid but it just seems a bit unclear and also a bit useless, I mean, who would pay more for something they can get for less. Besides, you won't have these epic gems on day one, so you're better off buying randoms by which time you get a gem, probability says you'll have the recipe to cut it.
    Even if it is this way, whats the issue with that? You pay less and you have a chance of getting a less in-demand pattern. There is really no problem. If going the random route is better, than go the random route. If you want specifics go specifics.

    Dont stress about a 1 token difference.

    All in all, you're just forced again to do those repetitive quests over and over and over again. I'm sorry, but I'm not impressed.

    Why not introduce a new method for epic gems?
    You would rather they make them prospect from Pyrite so all the people with 40000 stacks of pyrite can make a killing and crash the market for the gems in the first week?
