Let me just recraft my legendary for a 3rd time in 9.1 to get that socket then, no big deal
feels like blizzard misinterpreted the problem entirely, which was that you had to recraft your legendarythis does absolutely nothing to address that but the socket is nice i guess?
I'm sorry, but a gem slot is not worth the extra X number weeks of Torghast runs.
Maybe I am looking at these changes the wrong way, but it seems like a lot of crafting professions are getting the shaft here. A lot of 9.0 patterns aren't going to be valuable, but took significant cost to get to R4, and players are going to be buying a lot of rings, necks, backs (of which JC leggos are always pricey). Almost think I am going to double gather on everyone and just sell everything. Let the big TSM accounts play price wars with leggos and just ride the wave.
Blizzard is absolutely taking the piss.
Well, my back slot still doesn't have a base socket, so nothing change for me
so forcing us to recraft legendaries that are in domination slots was not enough? in the worth scenario, if you don't have a socket you need to recraft leggo that currently is in the helm, neck, chest, wrist, belt and rings. great
I feel like they designed legendary items around WoW Tokens, trying to get players to waste as much gold as possible and make them buy as much gold as possible from the store.
just add a socket for the legendaries we have atm and make it like 1k soul ash and you can put a socket on the current one not just the stygia version we got.
I don't understand that change... What's the reasoning for having an upgrade system if its inferior to crafting a new item in every way? It gets no socket AND costs more gold (because you need more base reagents).
I don't see why people are having such an issue with this. We've had an insanely-long patch to get sockets on our current gear. The only people missing out on easy sockets are those who crafted legendaries *recently* and haven't yet applied sockets to them.
Those legendaries costed a fortune, on some realms prices were up to 150k, wtf with this recrafting, are players a joke to you?
This appears to be a prismatic socket on legendary gear. Now, from my understanding, Domination 'gems' require a Domination Socket specifically, and so gear will still have to be re-crafted in another slot. Further, the socket does not appear when you upgrade existing gear, and so the problem of having to re-craft gear is completely untouched.I don't know what this is supposed to accomplish, aside from adding another minor incentive to re-craft, but I suppose for anyone crafting a new legendary next week, the extra 16 versatility will be nice...
For once I am glad I did not do anything, because I am lazy. Just you wait, in a week they will change it again.
maybe 3 sockets? and we might have a deal.
