I may or may not have had over two bank tabs completely filled with Pyrite. So yeah, not rebalancing things aside, I was a little pissed.


Whatever, I predicted that repeatedly over the course of 4.0. Pyrite was prospectable from the beginning, thus there was no way they were just going to throw epic gems into it.

Thus setting the stage for another round of endless speculation regarding the source of epic gems in Panda, since they have been raid-drops twice, and mineable once.

If the rare mineral in Cataclysm is prospectable from the beginning of the expansion, then it won't ever drop epic gems.

No, prospecting of titanium was added with 3.2 with epic gems.

I'm slightly curious to see if the boosted secondaries actually manages to boost the (non-tank) demand for non-reds.

Can't even start to debate the appropriate epic gem distribution strat until we've worked out whether they've fixed the colour distribution yet ;)

The past handling hasn't seemed to work that well, with WotLK being patch day -> upgrade everything, and Cata having them a little too rare and unpredictable in the last tier, so you're actually finished with most of the content by the time you get all of your gems upgraded.

If they did this I foresee epic QQ over having to run old content for gems. Do you really want to have to farm BoT, BWD, TotFW and FL every week to gem the new DS gear? (Obviously replace with appropriate MoP equivalents)

Gems need to come from ore. Any other source leads to glitching like we see now, and adds another rng factor to gearing.

as much as i hate bots and the fact this will lead to more and more of them
i agree

make them super rare and just increasingly more common as you go through tiers
and only from the top end ore
(plus a cheap transmute w/o cd for those bars)
ie saronite -> titanium is 8:1 and no cd

plus you could bring back the dust
i would actually go mine for stuff again if i got dust i could turn in for more tokens
