Hooray for patch notes!

Next patch notes are up! You can check them out over at wowhead right here. Take a few minutes to browse over them and then read on. Here are my thoughts on what's going to be hot and make you some extra bank.

Stokpile meta gems now!! Blizz is adding in new cuts for meta gems that make the choice of which to use very obvious to anybody and require 3 red gems to activate. This means there might be a good number of people shifting their gems around now that they don't need to have less optimal ones socketed. Here's the notes on them:

"Meta gems with the Chaotic and Relentless prefixes now have a requirement of 3 red gems.

New meta gems have been added:
Agile Shadowspirit Diamond (Agility/3% critical damage),
Reverberating Shadowspirit Diamond (Strength/3% critical damage)
Burning Shadowspirit Diamond (Intellect/3% critical damage).

These new recipes are unbound and can drop from any
Cataclysm creature. The new meta gems have a requirement of 3 red gems equipped."

That means you need to get your JC toon ready to go out farming for these recipe drops. My guess is that since they're unbound they'll be the same rare drops that cost a fortune to buy so make sure you have a decent bank for them if they're not uber common drops. I'm sure with their scarcity and newness they'll fetch a decent price next to the chaotic gems. The chaotic ones are the crit rating and crit damage metas that will require 3 red gems to work when the patch comes. So if you don't want to drop the cash on the new metas this will be the one you want for DPS. I'd just cut all of the gems personally, why limit yourself?

So start stokpiling the shadow spirit gems and get ready for a rush of sales. One thing I haven't looked into are the preferred gems for the healers as there's many options and they all seem good to me. Then again I only heal on my days off of bringing the pew pew. Any comments on that note?

After that the only real change that relates to making the wow gold is a ton of skills are being nerfed, buffed, levels changed and so forth. That means the glyph market is going to be turned inside out yet again. As always when a patch comes with a lot of skill changes there will be tons of glyphs that either go up or drop in value. Be sure to read carefully over the skill changes and craft glyphs accordingly.

So to all of you that are riding the glyph train to wealth check them out as there are a ton of them. Most of the glyph changes are buffs so if you're doing well you might just see an increase in sales and nothing else. But if you're getting into it slowly or only working glyphs a little bit now is your chance to hit it big. Branch out your business a little bit and craft a bunch of the new ones that are getting popularized and dump the ones that are being nerfed asap.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. From a healing point of view, I find the old wotlk 21int and mana return on spellcast much better than any of the current Cata ones. I belive there's a post somewhere on EJ showing it returns more mana per second than the spirit one too.
