The link that you have for Chaotic Shadowspirit Diamond shows the Burning Shadowspirit Diamond's requirements and not the Chaotic's updated 2 blue gems requirement (same as chaotic skyflares in Wrath). This is probably a mistake on wowhead's part but it's misleading when you state that the 2 have different requirements and the link shows otherwise.

Nvm then... just reread the patch notes and the tooltip is correct. Why add in a new gem that does the exact same thing for the same requirement then? Burning and Chaotic are nearly identical in every way, only the price is the difference :\

Because they aren't the same http://www.wowhead.com/item=52291 +54 crit, 3% crit damagehttp://www.wowhead.com/item=68780 +54 int, 3% Crit damageInt > crit for Spriests

Well, I think the basic point remains with all the new metagems - there is something annoyingly redundant about them. They all have the same requirements, the same secondary, 3% crit damage bonus, but the stat part differs. However, for every single class in the game, Int/Agi/Strength blows crit out of the water. Granted, one is bought with quest reward tokens and the other is world drop, but that won't have much of an effect as time passes.Were I the game designer, I'd have given the primary-stat versions a more strict metagem requirement. Maybe two blue and two yellow gems. It'd still work out to be a bonus over a three-red crit meta for most gearsets, but it'd at least be significantly more interesting when it comes to gemming.

:[ failx2 Thanks for correcting me Rip. I failed to read Chaotic's 54 crit. But it was not all my fault! Fox still has written up there that they share the same stats -_-
