What's the reasoning behind this?
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
... This is a serious kick in the nuts.
Inc stealth nerf to lightweave embroidery
Just wait, next they'll take out LW leg armor embossing...
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.
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?
Very irritating and unnecessary change.
Change chaotic skyflare requirements please then I won't care so much.
"Got my teacup here, now all I need is a tea bag"
that really sucks .. the greatest boni of jewelcraftig was that the Dragon Eyes Matches any color ...
goodbye 21crit /3 crit meta ... it was a nice time with you but i think didn´t socket 2 blues as a retri paladin ....
Great way of destroying JC with he arrival of epic gems. Without the matching socket bonuses JC will be the worst non-gathering profession.
Please Aion, come faster - I'm speachless already, Blizzard died for me, as a proper game designer.
JC gave a larger bonus than any other profession because of the prismatic gems. now it's on par with the other ones (tailoring might be the best now)Originally Posted by Symz
"In the next content patch Blacksmithing sockets will now all be hexagon shaped and only fit triangular gems we know no one can make them but there is a rare drop from the Time-lost Proto Drake that you can put in there"Originally Posted by Silverbreeze
I laugh at Blizzard's continued failure of balancing professions.
god i love blizzard i drop engineering to level jewelcrafting and 3 weeks later i get to drop jewelcrafting to level blacksmithing GG
WTB vendor that buys professions so i get my gold back -_-
