    Relentless Earthsiege Diamond

    While it says it needs 1 red, 1 yellow and 1 blue I've seen people run with only a nightmare tear still trigger the reqs for this, I recently switched it over my skyflare diamond and it would not light up for me unless I tossed in an orange one in the mix.

    Is there something I'm missing with this meta gem?.

    you're a 100% certain that you have a nightmare tear equiped?

    I am, the only thing I could think of is slapping the Tear on the Yellow socket then it might take it as a Green, but I'm not sure how'd that work before i spend 300g on that little test.

    If you have a tear, it is prismatic. It counts as all three. It doesn't matter what socket you have it in.

    I have a tear in my gear, just took off all gear with gems besides the tear (in a piece with a single socket) and my meta (which has a red gem in the other socket). Works just fine.

    I ran into this problem. Just un-equip the items with the Nightmare tear in and the Meta, log out, log back in; and all should be working fine.

    To avoid this just un-equip whatever you are putting the Meta/Nightmare Tear into first (doesn't matter which), then socket said piece.
    Doesn't happen all the time though. So don;t actually know WHAT is causing it...

    Tear on shoulder, orange on pants.

    If i can make it work was planning to switch Tear and Orange around so I can put 20 Stre on shoulders, but while at it and since I don't have rawr here, what would yield better dps my current legs or http://www.wowhead.com/?item=45841.

    If I'm going to do it better do it right.

    Hmm, I would try what Seamless said and if that doesn't work, open a ticket with a GM before you do anymore resocketing and wasting gems. No reason the tear should not be activating the meta.

    As far as the pants go, I don't have rawr right now either (at work) but just from looking at them I would say the pants you have equipped now would be the better choice. More strength and much more ArP compared to haste. ArP is a more valuable dps stat than haste and there is a significantly higher amount on the pants, while only giving up a small amount of crit.

    Just eyeballing the pants, it looks like your current legs are far better. 67/68 haste/crit is not as good as 57/89 crit/ArP. Also, your current legs have the same sockets and socket bonus but 6 more strength. Like I said, your current legs are a clear winner.
