Oh yeah , this is strong bonus . And this is just 5.2 . Who knows what will be next . Cool .
This is one of
four new legendary meta gems coming in 5.2. It is a reward for completing
as part of MoP's legendary questline:
: +324 Crit & Chance on striking with a melee attack to gain Capacitance. When Capacitance reaches X charges, you will deal a Lightning Strike to your current target for 100 Nature damage.
: +324 Int & Chance on casting a helpful spell to make your next spell cost no mana.
: +324 Stamina & Chance on being hit by a melee attack to gain a 20% reduction to physical damage taken for 15 sec.
: +324 Crit & Chance on dealing spell damage to gain 30% spell haste for 10 sec.
: +665 PVP Power & +775 Resilience. In build 16503 this is no longer legendary!
Blizzard confirmed on 7/29 that these meta gems will work in Patch 5.4 Siege of Orgrimmar helms:
Hunters are forgotten =(
Proc rate is as follows.
Indomitable Primal Diamond – 1.40 RealPPM on damage/absorb taken from melee ability or swing. No ICD.
Real PPM (RPPM) description:
The question is, duration?
I will call this now. For tanks at least, after Mists of Pandaria is over, this meta gem will stop functioning past a certain level as its too strong or it will stop being sold/acquired due to the proc on the meta gem.
What tank in their right mind would take more stam + 2% armor or Parry/dodge/magic damage reduction vs 20% physical damage reduction proc.
How does it work out for dk tanks?
Does the shield you get from Death Strike/mastery benefit from the proc , so it lasts longer ?
You can buy extra
from the vendor
located in the Tavern in the Veiled Stair for 5x
Once you collect 20
, you will get a quest to kill
and siphon his essence. Afterwards, Wrathion will ask you to meet him on the top of the mountain like in the 5.0 quest, and reward you with one of the legendary meta gems. The quests to collect 12
and kill Lei Shen appear to just be follow ups.
A question - does it proc only for tank classes? It would be definitely interesting for pvp, especially for healing specs...
Only procs from absorbs and damage taken.
Does not proc from parry or dodge.
Question is... Does it work on the hit that triggers the effect? Or only subsequent hits following the initial hit.
From July 29 PTR Patch Notes:
Indomitable Primal Diamond's chance for the meta-gem effect to activate is no longer affected by the wearer’s haste. Additionally, the chance to activate the effect has been increased by 50%.
Can someone explain this to me with regards to the wearer's haste?
The proc from this is
(spell id: 137593), for those looking to add it to addons. Its uptime was a pleasant surprise for me!
If this gem is allowed in the 5.4 pvp gear. It's going to change pvp big time.
You can have multiple types of Legendary Primal Diamonds. Hybrid classes can have a different gem for each spec.
I have it from a GM that the procs from the Legendary Meta Gems do not apply / take effect in BGs, RBGs, or Arenas. They
, but this was changed in a hot-fix...
From a hotfix dated December 16:
Battlegrounds and Arenas
Legendary Metagem effects (Capacitive Primal Diamond, Courageous Primal Diamond, Indomitable Primal Diamond, and Sinister Primal Diamond) should no longer have a chance to activate while in an Arena, Battleground, or Rated Battleground.
For anyone wondering: Similar to the Legendary Cloak, this item will no longer proc upon reaching level 100.
proc at level 99 too. As long as you have a helm with this gem, its hard to replace before level 100.
Despite what the notice says, the item is still available and can be purchased from the vendor in the "Sold by" tab.
