i had a gm confirm that epic gems would have a small chance to be prospected from pyrite ore so i stock piled up. did they change this? or was the gm i spoke to misinformed?
The information I have is from the Eurogamer interview with Tom Chilton which you can find here: http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2011-09-19-killing-deathwing-in-wow-patch-4-3-interview?page=2
Tom Chilton: There certainly are quite a few new profession recipes. We also introduce the epic gems in this patch, and they'll be available only through the normal and heroic difficulty of the Deathwing raids.
If epic gems will in fact have a tiny chance to be prospected from pyrite ore I have never seen it confirmed on the forums or anywhere else, and it will come as a shock to a lot of people who sold off their stockpiles of pyrite ore after this interview with Chilton went public. It's possible the GM is right and the community just hasn't been officially informed of it, but it is also possible the GM was just misinformed. Either way we should know tomorrow.
