Ptr missing an important change

General Discussion
1 2 3 5 Next
The meta gem change that was promised before cataclysm was released seems to be missed from the ptr patch notes.

Specifically the Chaotic meta gems crit strike rating and 3% increased crit damage was supposed to change from the current more blue than red requirement back to the old 2 blue gems requirement.

Please add this into that patch.
The note hasn't been added yet, but we haven't forgotten. Here's what you're likely to see in the patch notes:

  • Meta gems with the Chaotic and Relentless prefixes now have a requirement of 3 red gems.

  • Added new meta gems: Agile Shadowspirit Diamond (Agility/3% critical damage), Reverberating Shadowspirit Diamond (Strength/3% critical damage), and Burning Shadowspirit Diamond (Intellect/3% critical damage). These new recipes are unbound and can drop from any Cataclysm creature. The new meta gems have a requirement of 3 red gems equipped.

Good to know what's happening with metas... looking forward to the str cirt one! =D
Are you going to buff arcane mages a bit? Didnt see that in teh notes either... raiding is poo poo for us at this time.

What about a Spectator Mode for Heroics/raids to help player learn content who have not done it before?


That's actually a pretty good idea. Blue response please? =D
Nevermind.
Here Blizzard went above and beyond with a change and offered more options, worthwhile of a wait and am glad Blizzard didnt spoil the good news.
With these new recipes, it would be awesome for them to be BoP and show up for JC'rs only =/

And i'm not saying that for the price gouging that every server will do to those recipes...
so will it be a super rare drop or somewhat common
Oh joy. Dps get to hit harder with increased crit damage on their already 40k+ crits... Where is the healing love Blizzard? We only got like one or two meta and both of them kinda suck, especially for pvp... maybe throw us a bone too. Our job is already hard enough while dps get to have all the fun.
Woot!
