    Upcoming Jewelcrafting Change

    Upcoming Jewelcrafting Change

    [...] Nerfs are rarely (if ever) something that returns positive feedback, but we feel this change is necessary to bring this profession more in-line with the bonuses from the other professions. The stat bonuses are meant to stand on their own, not provide extra socket bonuses or ignore meta-gem requirements.

    Think they realised far to many people were changing professions just to get those eyes.

    Also, now all Engineers and Jewelcrafters will be equally pissed.

    I think its a resounding agreement this is the worst decision Blizz has ever made regarding anything in the history of this game. Please don't say it is so....Please change your minds....

    LOL big deal you have to change 1 gem to get your meta and maybe you lose a socket bonus here or there.

    It's so OMG game breaking it causes physical RL pain lol

    Start stockpiling ores, once epic gems hit, Jewelcrafting becomes the worst non-gathering profession in the min/max sense, and Blacksmith is King Fucking Kong.

    Re: Upcoming Jewelcrafting Change

    wow....this sucks...and i didn't even realize i'd lose my meta until someone pointed it out. i was concerned about losing a socket bonus<_<

    but logically speaking... it makes sense, and it doesn't.
    It makes sense if you take into account the JC gems when compared to blue gems have an equal bonus as any other profession...
    But it doesn't make sense as once 3.2 hits, the JC gems are going to be inferior. And provide nowhere near as much of a bonus as the other professions...

    This is jewelcrafting... if a jewelcrafter can't have a metagem what the f#^@ is the point of that?

    Great way of destroying JC with he arrival of epic gems. Without the matching socket bonuses JC will be the worst non-gathering profession.

    I laugh at Blizzard's continued failure of balancing professions.
