How to obtain gems for Jewelcrafting?
By processing the raw ore mined from the various deposits and mineral veins, jewelcrafters can extract gems from the ore which they can then use for their craft. Although miners sometimes find gems while gathering ore, jewelcrafters mostly rely on their prospecting skills to get more of the precious stones.
- My guild is currently speculating that by mining and vaulting ore mined before the Xpack, we'll be able to power-skill our jewelcrafters by using the vaulted ore and the "prospect" skill to extract gems from the ore. (If our understanding the the sentance above is accurate. --Dracomage 10:26, 22 September 2006 (EDT)
That statement could also be read as though Jewelcrafting may also include its own harvesting mechanic which uses mineral veins in the wild to get their materials, likely using up the vein in the process. I would prefer a system where the ore from veins/deposits could be processed into the raw jewelcrafting materials. In either case Copper and Tin ore are likely to be in high demand for a while after the expansion goes live, until people get higher in their Jewelcrafting. --Dga
- *removes foot* Okey so the pic was from May, I'm really paying attention here. Nonetheless, I'll try to get us a better one ^^ --Tekkub 21:29, 10 November 2006 (EST)
why new jewel table?
what's the point of having two different jewel tables on wowwiki? this currently one from Jewelcrafting seen it has grown in last week, but the other one in the Jewel page is much more complete, more info and better layout. shouldn't we merge them somehow? the Jewel one is by far more complete, but 2 things could possibly be added from thise Jewelcrafting page, the color background in the table for the respective gem socket colours and (probably) the vendor that sells that jewel --Daeveren
- The table for all possible gems created through Jewelcrafting should really go on Jewelcrafting recipes, where Jewel should probably list the vendor bought jewels and jewels that drop from bosses. // (talk · contr) 10:14, 10 February 2007 (EST)
- Just delete them all and stick them in a category where they belong ¬_¬ Apparently the idiot who added the new tables to this page is just that, they completely ignored the cleanup notice and made more work for whoever decides to clean it up. -- 11:53, 10 February 2007 (EST)
- Moved them to Jewelcrafting recipes, good luck to whoever picks up cleaning those eventually - 05:16, 19 February 2007 (EST)
What does it mean when the meta gems requires "At least 5 Yellow Gems"? Does it mean that 5 yellow gems will be consumed in the process? I can't beleive it means that there should already be 5 yellow gems inserted in sockets? LarsPensjo 05:09, 11 February 2007 (EST)
- No, it means you need 5 yellow gems equipped. They don't have to match the sockets, in fact you may have to give up a socket bonus to get the meta bonus. Dual-color gems can count twice towards the meta bonus however, and can still activate the socket bonus as well. 10:38, 11 February 2007 (EST)
new epic trinkets
I found a nice list of pattern sources at http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=55056430&sid=1 that would be good to incorporate into an article. Just knowing which are from a vendor and which are drops helps identify which are worth buying on the auction house above (estimated) vendor price. -- ScratchMonkey (talk) 15:16, 5 September 2008 (UTC)
- Ah, this information is already at Jewelcrafting recipes but I didn't see an obvious link from Jewelcrafting to that page. -- ScratchMonkey (talk) 16:05, 5 September 2008 (UTC)
- As noted on the Professions page, most crafting professions provide bonuses equivalent to about 2 extra gem slots (blacksmithing literally so), and mostly when you are (nearly) maxed out. You have to decide for yourself which among them is worth more to you. --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 22:18, October 27, 2009 (UTC)
This is the single most difficult profession to grind, for Alliance in particular. If you can't get to exodar, you must go to Outland or Northrend for training, especially terrible for noobs. There is no reason it should be in the exodar if Inscription is in every city. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Oakpack4 (talk · contr). 00:04, January 15, 2010
- First of all, sign your posts, secondly, this profession was added with an expansion in the 2 main capitals that require the xpak to enter thus making sure only those that get the expansion can get it. Inscription was added with a patch in order for people to get it up to level just in time for the Wrath of the lich king expansion. While I agree training JCing can be annoying at first it soon becomes like all the other professions in that you will have to go to Outland to learn new stuff, then go to Northrend to learn new stuff.
