Gold tip for meta gems

December 21, 2010 at 4:58 am | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

At present, Shadowspirit gems for the new metas are expensive. On my server, their cost is usually in the 400-500g range. Meanwhile, mats for the old Wrath metas are dirt cheap (I estimate <40g per gem).

The metagems themselves usually have two benefits. The first is a flat stat bonus, like +stamina. From Wrath to Cataclysm, this bonus has improved nicely. The second element of metagems is usually a percent-based bonus, like +2% armor. These have remained the same from Wrath to Cataclysm.

In other words, switching from the Wrath to the Cataclysm metagem carries a benefit only in the first bonus; the second is unchanged. Price-sensitive players will see the stat difference (eg, ~50 stamina) and the cost difference (~450g) and take the weaker of the two gems. This has obvious implications for jewelcrafters and, of course, for players that need metagems for new gear.
