It's a major disappointment if they don't make epic gems more widely available.Every JC has the cuts, but none of us have the gems.

Massively agree with this statement. My JC has 10 epic pats but i only cut 3 of them once a week. My Intellect gem costs 3k min to buy mats and i struggle to sell them at 3.4k. yes i know a 400g profit isn’t bad, but its a massive outlay and after AH's cut and listing costs i only make around 200g. its such a small payoff for such a big risk. I can make 250g per Inferno ruby i sell/cut. Bringing this to my point. its keeping JC's out of the market as the risks are just too high, this in turn is keeping the prices extremely high and there are not many people who are going to pay 3.5k per gem on any realm, the ones i do sell have mostly gone to high end raiders where over all the gems the extra stat actually helps them down HC mode bosses. Making the raw materials more readily available (not to much btw) will allow the market to force the price down to a more affordable price. Just to put this is perspective, I have 2 raiding toons 2/8 HC DS that have no epic gems. Due to the cost of the raw materials i cannot justify spending 30k+ on each toon for an extra 100 increase in a core stat. and then again as i upgrade my gear again. i actually don’t have the amount of gold needed to do this either.Just so its clear I have only explained the gold values of this to illustrate my point. I am not complaining about the lack of gold I can make as I only play the markets to make a gold so I can buy enchants, flasks and everything else that costs you gold., I am stating that I would love to be able to kit my toons out with epic gems but I just cant afford or even justify the cost. Just to put this is perspective, I have 2 raiding toons 2/8 HC DS that have no epic gems. Due to the cost of the raw materials i cannot justify spending 30k+ on each toon for an extra 100 increase in a core stat. and then again as i upgrade my gear again. i actually dont have the amount of gold needed to do this eather.

Well, not every jc... Neither of my maxed jc's do, but then, that's because i have absolutely no access to epic gems. Why buy epic cuts when I'm never going to use them? Cmon blizzard, give us another avenue to acquire them.

@Hidendragon Man, I'd love to see 3k raw epic reds on my server. Ours are 9k-10k. And the supply is atrociously low. I rarely see more than a couple at a time. I can't justify filling 17 slots with epic gems on my heroic raiding toon either. :/ They aren't even available in the quantity I require. I have 2 epic gems equipped right now, but both were ones I lucked out and got myself. Of course, the colors I don't need I can barely sell. Cuts go lower than the raw ones and for drastically lower prices. I'd complain more about my JC's wasted potential, but inferno rubies and some of the other cuts are still running at great prices.

I agree with the epic gems. I'm still in the process of buying them via the tomes but have received 2 epics so far. Plan to save those for Heroic pieces though.The Mass Dispel fix will be good though.
