How come there are no epic or JC only metas?

Professions
Seems like it would be nice to strive for an extra level of gear to strive for. I mean I can have a nice helm but I still have to stick a blue in there no matter how rare it gets.
Seeing how engineering got buffed so much, I would love to see JC buffs.

Have to agree with you there, I don't know why I feel this way (maybe OCD?) but I also find it a bit annoying having to put a blue gem into an epic helm. Maybe I just like purple text!
Epic Gems didn't come out with the 1st patch of Wrath.

To me this seems like you're focusing on the wrong thing. What matters is what it does, not the colour of the name when you're looking at the tooltip.

Your profession bonus through the JC gems is already on par with all the other professions. If you get buffed JC only metas, then the other JC only gems will be nerfed to keep the overall package balanced.
There have never been epic meta gems, I don't know what you guys are talking about.

Also, how did engineering get buffed?

They have gotten 2 specific sockets to fill. Cogs and Sprockets if I'm not mistaken. I think enchants now stack with engineering attachments now also.

That, and a bunch of other stuff, lol.
