Ive heard these drop in the Black Temple. Wonder how often they will drop. At this point you will have a lot of socketed items, which means upgrading from +9 gems in most sockets would make a big difference.
I heard the uncut epic gems will "drop" when you prospect ores as well, can anyone confirm or deny that?
After killing Anetheron (2nd boss of Hyjal) 5 mines spawned each with 1 epic gem in them and the usual blue/green gems. Once I get some more info on this ill update what they can be mined from. Possibly after completing each section of Hyjal these spawn? Not sure.
the Spinel and other various gems drop from Black Temple trash (quite often to be honest, drops about 10-12 each BT run for my guild), also you can mine them after killing 2 bosses in Mount Hyjal on the way to the next camp.
Yes. We seem to have terrible luck with these as well.
Can land 4 Lionseye and one Spinel (if any) every raid. :\
Obviously those are the best gems by far for many classes hence the high demand and low supply.
As of 2.4, all BT gems will be sold by Shaani for 15 badges.
shaani also sell designs. that will have to be payed for with gold not with badges like the gems.
Prior to 2.4, this gem could only be found in Hyjal Notes and BT Trash.
As of 2.4 this gem is also available from...
Black Sack of Gems
which drops from
(100% drop chance, and contains three epic gems and two rare gems).
, an SSO NPC that spawns in Phase Three, in exchange for 15 Badges of Justice
Once your realm reaches Phase 4, Shaani the "Jewelcrafting Supplies" vendor will spawn, however she won't sell epic gems until the Alchemy Lab is completed.
If you want to make hundreds of gold, farming Badge of Justice and spending them on Crimson Spinels is the best way to go.
All I know is this... I spent 45 badges for 3 Crimson Spinel. Had a guildy cut them in to Bright Crimson Spinel, and sold them in less than 30 minutes on the AH for 600G per on Thunderhorn.
For those of you doubting this money making machine... don't. Thats the easiest 1800G (less the AH cut) I've ever made.
This makes Kara worth running everyweek... half a clear will get you 600+ gold.
I have actually got one from my "Brilliant glass". One Crimson Spinel". Guess Epic rare gems can drop from that ability with JC now.
Now sold by
selling 2 of these aerie peak 400g each
Don't ever expect to see these in an AH near you. Due to the fact that they only drop from BT mobs and Mount Hyjal mining nodes, they're probably mostly going to be rolled on as loot and distributed to guildies that need them.
Crimson Spinels drop from the mobs in Black Temple, not Mt. Hyjal.
these can be mined from mount hyjal from the ancient gem mines.
After killing Anetheron (2nd boss of Hyjal) 5 mines spawned each with 1 epic gem in them and the usual blue/green gems.
why did blizz put so many important recipies to one stone, now every dps/healing class will be rolling or fighting for even one of these.(like it's not enough that it drops/or is found at low quantities at high level raid instances)
Going for 550 Buyout on eredar
Is it not possible to just go in there and mine the ancient gem mines up without getting saved, zone back out, join another group, re-enter it and keep farming up the gems? Or are the mines rare as all hell?
They probably have some kind of guardions to prevent smal groups getting these super epic t6 gems
The Gem mines only spawn after you kill the second boss in hyjal. So no, it's not possible to continuously farm these.
You have to talk to Jaina after killing the second boss and trigger the event before they will spawn.
