You've bought your ore at a discount, you've prospected it all, and now you're trying to decide how to make your money back. Like in Wrath of the Lich King, we have the ability to process all of these raw gems in some way in order to make more money. This is usually called a "shuffle"; it amounts to common sense and knowing what the gems can be used for.
Let's start with the basics. Each of the three modern ores prospects slightly differently.
- Obsidium Ore prospects into six green-quality gems per stack and a residual number of blue-quality gems.
- Elementium Ore prospects four green-quality gems per stack and one blue-quality gem.
- Pyrite Ore prospects into four green-quality gems, one and a half blue-quality gems, and an average of eight Volatile Earths per stack.
