One of the best possible gems for a healing paladin.
The cost is being lowered (massively) in 2.1.
Current cost: 28,125 honor points.
Next patch: 10,125 honor points.
it is now 6885 honor.
There is now a +12 Spell Critical gem, boc JC rep reward.
As of patch 2.4.3 you can now buy for 800 arena points at the arena gear vendors.
Is it still Unique-Equipped in 2.4.3 ?
"All your yellow slots are NOT getting these gems because you can only have 1 in your equipped gear set at a time."
Can anyone confirm this?
how do you get this?
For a given amount of critical strike rating, your percent chance to critical strike
as your level
Read the linked post for all the breakdowns. It's an official Blizzard post on the official forums.
are you insane! even a 1% increase to your spell crit percentage is AWESOME! Just think of the hundreds and hundreds of spells you cast... and if even one more of each hundred spells hit for double (or more based on your +spell crit bonuses) how much more damage you will inevitably do over a long period time.
I am a lv 70 fire dest lock and every tiny bit of spell crit boosts my overall damage (say, in instances) SOOO much more over time. The only locks or mages I see that come close to matching my damage have high spell crits as well...
So ya, you may not see it every time or right away but a even one percentage or a half percentage here and there really add up over time.
Does this goes for any one, can u be use by a lvl 40 person? cuz i'm lvl 40~ just doing intense amount of pvp, almost have about 9000honors
It's not a unique item?
that gem isnt for lvl60+ items?
these things are ^&*!ign unique when equiped my friend socketed both his spellstrike hood and his spellstrike pants with these and now can't wear them simultainiously, be careful dudes not sure if GM's wil fix it if you socket inadvertantly
lol its unique....check
Since this is pretty much the only PvP gem a healer might actually use, and not every healer loves +Spell Crit (I do as a Holy Pally, but I'd personally take
Iridescent Fire Opal
over this, for example), I just wanted to ease some fears and say epic gems aren't all too hard to get. Many come in heroic instances at decent droprates and, being I find myself as only healer usually, they're usually yours for the taking. Some other good ones are
Teardrop Crimson Spinel
Royal Shadowsong Amethyst
from recipes, but they'll cost ya.
Durable Fire Opal
Luminous Fire Opal
Iridescent Fire Opal
all come as drops so if you instance a lot, don't worry about spending honor on gems, you won't need to...
As of 2/22/08 and according to:
The item is still "Unique-Equipped".
I am uncertian first hand if this item is indeed Unique-Equipped, because I have not bought 2 yet to test it.
In game, the item description says "Unique-Equipped". This corresponds with many other PvE purple quality gems that are also all (I think all) Unique-Eqiupped.
The item description here on thott needs to be updated.
You need to PvP to get this?
