    Photo proof that you have prismatic sockets on all your benthic gear.

    Plus there is no Casino for stats considering they're fixed stats for that specific piece of gear.

    I got a Haste/Mastery set of legs with a Prismatic first go.

    Yay
    We're all newbs, some are just more newbier than others.

    Just a burned out hardcore raider turned casual.
    I had BfA Alpha. Then I had BfA Beta. Now I has BfA. Meh
    No Classic Beta. Even if I got it I probably wouldn't play.

    your input is noted and the world will keep on turning, somehow.

    Imagine feeling the need to get upset that someone expressed a negative opinion towards something.

    You can upgrade the gear near to the portal to Boralus...there is one of those dudes made out of bandages. Under his name you can read "BENTHIC UPGRADES"

    You can upgrade your 385 items on this NPC....up to 425.
    The upgrade ones i know, got one of my legs to 415 already. Didnt know u can buy then (and theres nore than legs, bracers and hands?). And stats is random, pre set (with different/equal effects - for me - pally - legs make me largeer lol. Or differs?)

    Ps: you are from Portugal or Brazil?

    Im missing the waist.

    I thought i was able to get them but...maybe it got fixed? I just created 6 waists and none had a Socket?
    Do you think it got fixed and it was a bug?

    I can make a video showing you my:
    back
    hand
    bracer
    feet
    legs

    All with sockets

    /sigh. No hate on you OP, good info and all.
    New? We've had tokens like this for several expansions now, and these ones are significantly less random than most of them.

    This is not normal. I got gem sockets LEFT and RIGHT, non stop....until just now. I created 6 waists an none had socket.
    Maybe it got fixed?

    Managed to get sockets on all slots but the waist sad

    Only the waist has always the same secondary stats.

    You can check here all versions (check your armor type)
    https://pt.wowhead.com/guides/benthi...hicarmor-plate

    All other slots have different versions...and can proc a gem socket.

    All static yes, with different ones potentially dropping, only thing is they can roll tertiary stats so can fish for sockets if you wish.

    Considering it is not meant to be the primary source of best gear I don't understand everyone's gripes here. It is mostly a catch-up mechanic, especially once new raid is out and such.

    Here is the video proof i actually did it

    lmao didn't know you could get socket off that thing

    o well classic can't come soon enough

    Because of the nature of this loot, *cough* slot machines *cough*, I couldn't give 2 shi#s about it.

    As someone said earlier, what I get is what I get, I'm not going to start farming them.

    And if it were up for feedback, I'd say the plain obvious. Quit it with this BS loot and bring back the old times where the only RNG was getting the piece and not getting it and then praying for the right version of the 1st layer, then the 2nd layer, then the 3rd layer.... Combined a billion options or whatever.

    No, that's randomness for you. It's not nice and smooth, but all clumpy.

    What's the point if trying to get perfect benthic gear when - after weeks and month of farming for upgrading all the slots - the itemlevel is capped 5 levels below heroic raiding/m+ instance drop gear?
