Well this is VERY good news to start off the day. That requirement was STUPID in the first place!! I have no idea what they were thinking when they made that change, just glad they realized the error of their ways and set them back (even if it is in a future patch)Thanks Blizzard Happy 6th Anniversary!! (Yes I know it was yesterday)

I can't understand what they were thinking especially as the Cata class changes were supposed to allow players to make the decisions, not be forced by heavy handed design into a particular choice.If they don't like people stacking +damage gems they should just remove them and only leave the hybrid gems and then we get to decide what type of hybrid we want.But worrying about red gems this early in an expansion is stupid anyway as people will be gemming for hit/expertise etc for at least the first raid tier.

Red gems are simple, the choices come in the colours. They were trying to push people to use those colours more at level 85. They probably had to change the restrictions on the existing metas to prevent them from being the optimal choice at 85.It was a "stupid idea", but it doesn't fit very well with socket bonuses and hybrid gems, and the fact that blues just aren't that interesting. So they reversed it. Hopefully the increased socket bonus value and new worth of blue gems (hit) will make gemming more interesting than "all red and stick a nightmare tear in the slot that nets the biggest socket bonus".
