    Tip: Relentless Earthseige Diamonds

    I just wanted to pass along a tip I put together as I was gearing up my main (L85 Assassination Rogue). After researching all the Best gear, gems, enchants, etc over at ElitistJerks, I came across something that surprised me.

    are still the best meta gem for my class. are second. Both of these cuts are bugged right now and only activate if you have more blue gems than red gems.


    Blizzard has stated on 24-NOV-2010:

    The current design has been reconsidered, so we're planning to revert gems that now require more blue than red gems back to their original requirements. Such a change can't be accomplished via a hotfix though, so we'll have to wait to revert these in a future patch.

    So, many players are not using these right now, but I anticipate they will be. All the same, I went to the AH last night to buy mine, and found that it was a mere 20g. Wow! I picked up 5 for around that price, and I plan to re-sell them for 10x as much. After all, if is better than , it stands to reason that it should cost more too.

    tl;dr - are cheap. Buy them now, and resell later for a nice return.

    EDIT -> This tip may turn out to be bad. The PTR currently has an Agility/Crit Shadowspirit Diamond cut that will replace REDs as the best in class gem. I don't expect there to be much of a gap between Blizzard implementing these & fixing Chaotic SDs - the market may not have a chance to pick up for REDs before Agile Shadowspirit Diamonds heat up.

    Retired - I blame Kathroman for everything.

    Note: Blizzard has since implemented two patches and has yet to revert the requirements. This still a worthwhile speculation play.

    That also stands to reason to stock up on Chaotic Shadowspirit Diamonds as well. Once the patch hits, plate DPS will need them as it's the best meta for them.

    Don't get your hopes too high, a few classes are already using the Chaotic metas, if anything the demand for the red and orange gems will increase once (if) this change is implemented. (Not saying you won't sell more metas at higher rates, but don't go and stockpile a thousand of them)

    It could go either way, but I see it more likely that the metas will have more demand. Makes more sense that people would already have the red and orange gems they need, rather than gimping themselves with blues for the meta currently. Most players I know are using meta with requirements they already can fill without screwing over their other gems.

    The part that was interesting to me was the fact that the new metas will be BOE world drops. That means the recipes will command a very high price and there will be few people producing them initially.

    The way I read it, the meta gem itself was a world drop and not the recipe. But now that I think about it, much more likely as a recipe. Either way, they will be fortunes for people.
