"Jewelcrafting: +59 spellpower"NO!NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!32 (runed dragons eye) - 19(runed scarlet ruby) = 1313*3 = 39

Perhaps if you had read the installment with JC you'd realize he's counting an extra 20 spellpower from not having to use two glowing twilight opals to activate the meta:2 runed instead of 2 glowing = 20 + dragon's eyes = 59

I did read the JC article and he was wrong there too, as people pointed out in the comments. He's ignoring the fact that not only is stam useful in pve (more AOE durability) but many times socket bonuses are irrelevavent. In short, he's pretty much presenting it as a straight +59 bonus when in actuallity you are making signifigant tradeoffs for it.

strange how you see it differently to other sites and people, like elitest jerks for one. And imo 120 health is not a significant PVE gain by any stretch of the imagination, especially as you dismiss the socket bonus's as mostly irrelevent, yet they provide you with a lot more bonus than a meagre 120 health, and DO increase your dps (even tho it is a almost neglible increase).

Well the issue is that alot of people seem to have this magical hard-on for socket bonuses, even when they are irrelevant. If you want max DPS, you don't stack your sockets anyways. But yeah, meeting that meta requirement can be a beetch, but it can be hard to get the meta as well (and often not worth it).I just feel that it's really innaccurate to repersent JC as a straight +59 SP, without mentioning that this is the max possible bonus and highly situational.

For an 8 haste or crit bonus, you should socket SP/SPR instead of straight SP. For a 6 haste or crit bonus your should socket the appropriate orange instead of straight SP. If you aren't socketing 2 blues to activate your CSD, you're crazy and you're wrong. Because you have to do these things anyways. Runed Dragon's Eyes represent a much greater SP boost than 39.

Actually, the rigth way to look at it would be to say "what if I just socketed reds"And you'd have a 39SP boost + 16 haste or something. Or you can say 52 SP and lose X spirit/stam.Take your pick.
