" Sha-Touched Weapons will not be available in the new Raid tier but will still be available from previous Raids. "
" Eye of the Black Prince will be able to be used on new Epic Weapons "
" Eye of the Black Prince --- Add a prismatic socket to a Sha-Touched weapon.
So if sha touched weapons will not be available in 5.2 , and eye of the black prince only works on sha touched weapons , who came up with an idea that it will be useable on the new weapons that are coming in 5.2?
It's probably a response to community feedback, who are annoyed that all the hard work they've done in 5.0/5.1 is negated because there's no more sha-touched weapons. So this is a compromise: you can't use the gem, but you can use the prismatic gem slot on new weapons.
thy should change it so that adds a "sha touched" socket. So that 1 its a money sink and 2 it doesn't make the build of the quest so far worthless.
Seriosuly how is "adding" a socket to the weapons any different then if they simply just came with one. Adding a major socket like the sha touched provides a larger boost to people who have stuck with it.
