My remarks earlier on gemming was a bit confused/incomplete.
Tense is the new purple (Str+PvP Power) cut, an option for blue gem slots, unless gemming straight PvP Power (the Stormy cut now that Spell Penetration is thankfully gone) is preferable for Ret?
Resplendent is still the orange (Str+Resilience) cut, an option for yellow gem slots, for which there is lacking anything particularly good for Ret to gem straight yellow anyway. Maybe haste (Quick) but, eh.
I prefer to match gem slots, particularly in my PvP gear, since the slot bonus is usually additional Resilience.
If one was NOT to gem for matching slots, would you recommend straight Strength gems (Bold) or straight PvP Power (Stormy)?
