Pretty much can figure they will patch out you being able to use these gems on anything higher than ilvl 150 or something to that degree now that it's "well known".
Any bets how long it'll be before it's nerfed?
This'll get patched out. They level capped so many other things from various other professions that it only makes sense that this was an oversight and not an intentional carryover.
It may or may not be patched out, but for now this is a good way to make a quick profit on the AH.Partially Removed
And boom it no longer works on shadowlands gear.
It should be worth it for nearly all specs to use both, atm, as primary stat is much MUCH more valuable in SL than is was in BFA or Legion
And all of a sudden the gem either got nerfed or became unable to be used in SL gear.
This will get changed for sure, as it should
I give it 24 hours before we see a Hotfix that makes these gems no longer provide any stat bonus above level 50.
Not off base though. Blizzard's problem is they stamp out outliers. But they consistently fail to create a compensation for the loss. Which is what actually frustrates people because it feels like a hard penalty instead of Blizzard adjusting things.
I don't think they'll break them to not work above 50. The hotfix will likely be a significant reduction in how much stat the gems give, cause they are overbudgeted in comparison to bfa's other gems.
Thanks bro we were trying to sell them now everyone knows, sick of this website jesus.
