Eye of the Black Prince, Replaceable?

(Locked)

The problem is that 10k on one gem is a joke as a result I will wait til I get my normal mode weapon to slot my gem and possibly not even then I am not dropping 10k every time i get a new sha touched weapon it is absurd... I should be a few hundred gold for a new gem tops or allow us to remove it and slot it into our new weapon.....

Wait, what's stopping players from using the Eye over and over again on the same weapon if we can have more Eyes
It is likely unique equip.

Give Jewel crafting some love. Make it expensive but make it so jewel crafting can learn to make these like once every 7 days or something.

Or you can just add an NPC to unsocket that specific GEM for a 5k charge. If it isn't your intent for people to hold onto it till they get their legendaries or what not that would be the most Valid way to go about it. He can be an assistant to the Black Prince who does it for you or the Black Prince could do it himself and he can just make a funny comment on how you should wisely use this item or something along those lines

I just don't understand the point of having to pay 10k for a new gem every time.

If you're in a position of upgrading a sha-touched weapon more than once, wouldn't it be smart to just save the gem for weapon you'll use the longest?

You have to win them. The quest requires you to win once in each of the two new battlegrounds.


Thanks, I do appreciate it. Wont touch this questline now.

On a PVE server and I point blank refuse to set foot in any pvp area or BG.

There’s currently no way to obtain an additional Eye of the Black Prince, and we’re aware it can create a situation where people are deterred from wanting to upgrade their items. That’s not the intent, we want you to use it and enjoy the upgrade then and there, and so we’re looking into a way for players to obtain additional sockets similar to how you can purchase additional legendary gems.
Whenever I first look at this gem I figured it would be one we could carry through MoP. Like if we put another gem in its place it would just pop out and back into out bags. And I like how it can only go into the weapons but yeah, think just letting us remove this one gem manually would be the best solution. Now I dont know how the head enchant will work, but hope yall got some kinda system goin on for it.

suggestion: put in on the valor vendor if you have completed the quest to get it.

costs: 10 sha crystals OR 5 spirits of harmony. (i want to be able to farm something other then gold to replace this).

or for an alternate suggestion, make it a learned spell, in the general tab of your spellbook. that way you can enchant as many of your sha touched weapons as you want, perhaps with a 1 week cooldown or something.

Am I missing something or can you not just buy a new Eye from the VP vendor for around 2k gold?

Commander Oxheart in Townlong Steppes will now sell Crystallized Dread, Crystallized Terror, Crystallized Horror, and Eye of the Black Prince for gold to players that have completed the appropriate quest lines.

To everyone that has commented on this, you need to realize something. This is a legendary questline. Think about every legendary before this. Legendaries are time consuming, expensive, and for the lucky few that complete it.


This argument is completely fail for the simple fact that this "legendary" chain isn't very "legendary" when they made it available to EVERYONE through LFR. The items, thus far, haven't been "legendary".

You want me to consider a 500-550 stat gem and a prismatic sha touched slot on the same plane as level-appropriate Thunderfury, Sulfuras, Atiesh, Thori'dal, Valanyr, Shadowmourne, et cetera.

No. Locking it behind a ridiculous amount of gold to replace items doesn't make them "legendary", it makes them a tedious gold sink. If they were TRUE legendaries, only a very, very, few people would have them. 10k per gem is ridiculous and incentivizes not upgrading because that sweet weapon you finally might get through RNG now has an extra price tag associated with it. And if you're in a core raiding guild, you can't leave it empty, you're EXPECTED to fill it. Expected to get the extra socket.

This is a terrible replacement for "legendaries" (gold stars for everyone!) and an equally terrible attempt by Blizzard to reduce the amount of gold in the economy. All it does is penalize players who can't sink 40+ hours a week into the game.
