How to Get Epic Gems
Getting epic gems in patch 4.3 is going to be a different way we got epic gems in Wrath Of The Lich King. In WotLK, epic gems were mostly prospected from titanium ore. They were also drops from Dalaran fishing quests, which was Blizz’s way of encouraging players to complete those boring fishing dailies.
In patch 4.3 (Dragon Soul raid patch), epic gems will drop from geodes, containers which players get when defeating a boss in the Deathwing raid.
For gold gamers who gave up raiding due to time constraints or boredom, this is hideously frustrating. We are still waiting to hear whether the epic gem transmutes datamined from ptr will make it in-game. If so, I wouldn’t be surprised if it wasn’t created by a combination of the corresponding elemental and herbs.
Hyjal. Fire. Volatile fire. Cinderbloom. Ember topaz.
Uldum. Air. Volatile air. Whiptail. Amberjewel.
Vashjr. Water. Volatile water. Veil of Azshara. Ocean sapphire.
Deepholm. Earth. Volatile earth. Heartblossom. Inferno ruby.
Twilight highlands. – – Twilight Jasmine. Demonseye.
– Life. Volatile life. Stormvine. Dream emerald.
Of all these elements, several are in high supply. Of these, you need to be watching for the lowest prices, and shamelessly bottom feeding.
Three of the elements are either in low supply or high demand, or have such a volatile value that they are worth stockpiling.
Warning. Never stockpile any item without a back up plan. Your gamble could go wrong.
Inferno ruby. Expensive and highly desirable.
Veil of Azshara. Low supply.
Heartblossom. Low supply.
If you can buy any of these below 50% of their usual value, I would suggest gobbling them up faster than a hungry hungry hippo.
Epic Gem Cuts
Tome Burning Jewels is bind on pickup, unfortunately they cannot be traded. They sell for 4 jewelcrafter daily tokens. Specific patterns sell for 5 tokens.
The patterns from the tomes for epic gem cuts are random. Jewelcrafters do your jewelcrafting daily quests, hoard your jc tokens and pray to the RNG gods for lucky drops.
