JC Search Option

Professions
Post Limit:
Is there any way we could get a search option for JC?

Example - "Can you make me a strength / hit gem?"

Rather than needing to scroll through every gem looking for it, how about a search for strength gems? Search for hit gems?

Please?
I would even be ok with an add-on feature that allowed this - but can't find anything.
I don't think that type of search is really needed. the color search works perfectly fine for that purpose. you don't need to scroll through *every* gem if you at least understand how hybrid gems work and know what color gem to look for.
If someone comes to you and asks for an spirit / haste gem, you know immediately what gem that is? I don't think so.

It would just make it easier to find the recipe.

I need a gem with spirit - click the box and all the gems with spirit pop up.

We currently have the FILTER which we can search by Slots and Subclasses (which personally I use very rarely). A filter search by stat would be more useful than by subclasses.
I personally think this would be a great idea, and I was searching for a similar addon for quite some time. Unless you're a jewelcrafter, you really can't be expected to know what colors match up with every stat. I mean, I know that red = primary stats and that spirit and stamina are blue, but for anything else I have to look it up somewhere, and it's never convenient.

Bottom line, gem colors and stats are not at all intuitive, and a search for stats would be remarkably helpful.
there is already a search box in professions. it's that box next to the filter that says Search.

type "spirit" "expertise" or whatever you're looking for and it shows you what's available.

This. I think you are limited to single words, so strength hit isn't necessarily an option, but it narrows the list down significantly.
There is a WoW Gem website out there that was never updated for any MoP content, however it has a bunch of filters on the right hand side that sort through all the gems. And the names are still relevant in MoP. For example an "Adept" gem is always +agi and +mastery gem regardless what the gem name is.

If you play with the filters you'll get a feel for which gems provide which stats. I doubt the default interface will have this kind of feature as long as addons are out there. In my opinion there is a far higher likelihood that an addon developer would do something like this. Especially given how large a JC book is these days.

*EDIT* I did see a Gem Helper add on on the Curse site, but can't vouch for how useful or helpful it might be.
