Er. Maybe I was on crack or something but I could have sworn the initial announcement about the gems was that each geode would have a random gem that was already cut. I can't find the blue post on it right now but I distinctly remember a lot of JCers being pissed off because they've been hoarding tokens for new cuts. At any rate, Blizz said people shouldn't be expecting to replace all their gems with epic ones so I'm not really sure where this assumption they're going to be BoE is coming from. To me that statement means they're either going to be prohibitively expensive or not tradeable.Also, Eternal Embers are for the staff quest, you meant Living Embers.

I already guessed that Blizzard wouldn't make Epic gems bought from the JC vendor since people would be able to buy every single one the day they were released, and that defeats the purpose of said dailies.I haven't done any since I had all of the main PVE gem cuts :P

AFAIK the only official information we've had on epic gems is in an interview with Ghostcrawler posted on Tankspot - http://www.tankspot.com/showthread.php?77571-Interview-with-Greg-Street-AKA-GhostcrawlerCrucially this interview doesn't say anything about whether the gems will be cut or not, or if they will be BoE or BoP.This is why Basil says that the gems being tradable is his prediction - no-one from Blizzard has said either way.
