Legion gems can be obtained by prospecting ore - namely

will produce Uncommon gems a majority of the time, while prospecting
yields a much higher proportion of Rare gems. There is an additional mechanic to be aware of, however - gem chips.
Gem chips are a new flavour item, yielded from prospecting (in addition to gems). They are used as a reagent in cooking for one dish -
When prospecting ore, a gem chip of a certain colour that appears in your Prospecting window will predict the
next gem that you will obtain
via prospecting, which can be quite helpful!
Note that the coloured version of each Gem Chip will only be seen in your prospecting window - the chips in your bags will be generic
As you are able to predict the colours of gems you will prospect next, you can prospect
until you get the gem chip colour that you want, and then prospect
to get the rare gem of that colour.
The gem chips you can obtain are listed below. In addition, the "Legion Gems" column lists the gems that correspond with the appropriate colour.
This will be the item that ends up in your bags after prospecting
Below is a list of the Legion gems, and the cuts available to each.
Some prospecting info based on 500 Leystone Ore and 200 Felslate
(for price comparison, that was 14,000 gold for that ore on 10/5/16)
128 - Gem Chips
3 - Chaotic spinel
3 - Deep amber
4 - Azsunite
5 - Queen's Opal
6 - Skystone
1 - Pandemonite
4- Maelstrom Sapphire
So 700 ore - 35 gems.
This is ridiculous, I go out an mine for hours and get a bunch of gem chips, which are useless.. I just need one Dawnlight for a quest, and they are 2000gold each on the AH - Hey Blizz, fix this... it's ridiculous!
The prices of these on all servers are totally unfair....No Gems before this in wow history were this expensive...I am a leather maker and could price my stuff like this but I don't because I'm not a greedy guy.....(##RESPBREAK##)520##DELIM##Onyx1831##DELIM##Do not circumvent filters.
