I just did the same fucking thing today. This kinda blows. I understand the need for it, it's just really bad timing.

I don't understand all these "JCing is useless now" posts. Two points:1.) JCing was not just slightly better than the others, but massively so. At least for rogues, every non-gathering profession had almost exactly the same value, set at 64 attack power. With JC's ability to socket-hop with better stats, EJ.com was estimating it at around 110 attack power equivalent.2.) JCing, even after this, will still have at minimum 66 attack power equivalent for a rogue, and possibly more, if you need to work on a certain stat like expertise, for instance.Conclusion: JCing will be either best or tied for best raiding profession (with blacksmithing) even after this nerf.

Unfortunately not Roboticus. For those of us with one red socket slot on our items jewelcrafting now becomes worse than any of the other professions for the perks. LW gives me 37 spell power from the bracer enchant, JC will now give me 13 spellpower since I have one red socket and there are no "hybrid" dragonseye gems. So instead I can get spirit from the blue sockets and haste/crit/int for the yellow ones. How nice. But I don't want those stats.
