"Blizzard has said that they made a mistake making leveling gear gemmable at all in BC, and you'll notice that they fixed it for Wrath. You end up with weird item level problems and gear that shouldn't be as good as it is"Interesting, I just leveled a toon through Northrend, and I had this exact same situation. I had gotten a belt when I was about lvl 67 with a gem slot that I slapped a belt buckle on. I ended up keeping that sucker till like lvl 77 or 78 because I couldn't find anything with better SP.It bummed me out when I started getting my Northrend upgrades that nothing had any gem slots, but it did avoid that item mismatch issue.

One reason I think they should have more... for JewelCrafters. I ended up vendoring a ton of bc-level jewels that no one wanted on the AH. If jewel slots were available at lower levels, there might be at least a small market for those.But I at least hope they do something about the gear in general. Having just leveled a Resto Druid to 58 as of last night, she didn't see a single upgrade drop after Sunken Temple. Nothing in BRD, DM East, or LBRS. And anything that was close to an upgrade was pretty much always cloth.

they could just put iLevel requirements on gems, no more epiq gems in 200 gear....
