I checked the Arms guide and there was no mention of what to use for Serpent's Eye gems as a jewelcrafter. Sorry if this has been covered before.
I know regularly I am supposed to gem for crit because 2 crit > 1 str. Thing is, JC gems for whatever reason are either double strength (320 as opposed to 160) or 1.5x crit (480 instead of 320). Is the JC crit gem still better than the str gem? or is 1 str > 1.5 crit? Any input is appreciated.
For the record: My other profession is blacksmithing and I am considering switching to engineering.
