hey mages,being the tard i am i only realised(was told) the other day that you don't *need* to put the same coloured gem into a socketed item to have it fit,old news i know but this opened lots of possibilities to me. My friend also suggested I load every single slot and socket i have with a +19 sp gem im currently an arcane spec (down to veins in frost) and he seems to think it would power me up a bit,wanted to see if there was any truth in this or whether it would gimp me (especially missing too many socket bonuses?)
appreciate any help :)
a lot of it really is dependant on your gear and on your meta gem.
if you drop all the other gems for 19sp gems, will your meta still be active? (here's a hint, it shouldn't.. you'll need two blue gems for this
which is the gem you should be using). In all honesty, most of the socket bonuses are ridiculous (like +4 intel, or +6 sp and stuff like that).. if losing the socket bonus equals out to more spell power with a 19sp gem, then go for it, provided you're hit capped.
TL:DR, stay hit capped, keep 2 blues for that meta, everything else should prolly be 19sp gems.
