Are you kidding me? The green intellect gem is +40 intellect? THE GREEN ONE?The epic "brilliant lionseye" in TBC was +10 and there was a unique-equipped +12 intellect one; the green Wrath was +12. That's mild stat inflation. Doubling the old epic gem? That's just ridiculous stat inflation. I realize that stats are getting reweighted, but I hope all the older gems get bumped up a bit as well. Otherwise, these stats are just silly.

I think that a lot of this appearance of stat inflation is coming from the fact that the stats are being realigned. Intellect is going to give spellpower now. AP isn't going to show up on gear anymore. So the huge boosts to Intel and Agi and all the other white stats is to make up for the loss of direct SP/AP/etc on gear.I think only Stamina is really being inflated because of their wish for bigger healthpools for all.
For those of us who were confused at first, he means green quality, as in: uncommon, not epic.Int gems are still red in the ruby sense.

Sorry for being inarticulate, I got a little ranty after I hovered over those numbers and saw the mega-inflation. Int gems are in fact going to be red (as they're replacing spellpower gems).

i'm leveling a dk tank through BC right now and her gear has a total of 17 gem slots, 20 when i get the head from crypts. i think putting 20 regal jaspers in would be quite nice. or fuck it, just 20 solid zephyrite. 400dodge/600stam vs. 1200stam.either way, holy shit. and that's just on the cheap end. maybe i put in the rare (blue) quality gems. /giggle in excitement.
