The best +attack power gem in the game right now.
The cost is being lowered in 2.1.
Current cost: 28,125 honor points.
Next patch: 10,125 honor points.
can you own more than one of these?
Current patch notes state that the cost is being further reduced to 8100 honor points. JT
The 2.1 patch will add an identical, non PvP (not to mention non unique) gem that can be cut by jewelcrafters.
Of course, no one really knows where (or under what condition) these epic gems will drop yet, so this one may still be a good option for most people, especially considering the drop in cost.
can confirm it was changed in the latest patch to unique-equipped
Seems like the "Unique" or "Unique-equiped" is removed, can anyone confirm using multiple Bold Ornate Rubies?
The upcoming 2.2 patch introduces an epic +24 AP gem, "Crimson Sun".
It is cut by JC (recipe purchased from the Consortium, Revered rep required), however it is Unique-Equipped and Bind On Pickup.
So basically a jewelcrafter may have one +24 AP gem equipped, as a reward for mastering the profession.
do i get ranged attack power of these aswell?
I just bought 3 of these and i went to place the 2 others I got in another item and it said I reached my maximum limit of this gem. Is that an error or did i just waste 16k honor on something that I can't use?
The name Bold is wrong for the stats on this, It should be Bright.
Bold is STR, and Bright is AP.
The error is in game, so it's not wowheads fault.
Can this be put in a BoE item without makign it Soulbound? For example buy the gem on my main, socket it on a BoE item and sent it back to my alt?
I don't know what you guys are talking about!
I just bought it for 8500 honor
As nice as this is, nearly 30k for a gem is pushing it... especially since you can get 16 AP gems crafted. When is 4 AP ever worth 30k honor and marks? heh
I have an open ticket with Wow about this item (April 5, 2008). This ruby shows for me that it's a unique item... and I thought that meant that you could put just one bold ornate ruby on ONE armor item...
Turns out that "unique" means you can only equip one ruby on your entire set of gear currently worn... correct?
Was this a 2.4 Wow mod? I see in this Allakhazam website that the Bold Ornate Ruby does NOT list as a unique item.
wtf? 28k? only losers could ever have that many hp and spend it on 1 %^&*ing gem. gg blizzard.
dude, lvl 19 items have no sockets
this item may sure look good but be careful where you socket this because if you socket on an item that you will replace eventually your going to have to go through eye of storm again as well as have to earn that honor all back again. Personally I am going to wait until I have several pieces of my lvl 70 pvp gear before going and getting one of these, and only on a weapon off-hand or shield. I've found myself already regretting having used the Halaa yellow resilience socket gem on a piece of armor that is now obsolete to the gear i use now, so be careful where you equip this.
Preferable places to socket:
These places are preferable because these are areas where you tend not to replace too often with newer improved gear.
I have a Blackout Truncheon which actually has two sockets and is a nice off hand mace with a good proc. I easily see myself replacing it though so no need to kill that many hours working for a +20AP gem. A 20AP gem would be bought on a top two piece of gear in game and you have no other upgrades to get with your honor. Otherwise farm for 20min for 45g and buy the +16AP gem.
PS- don't call other's nubs unless you have research to back it. Although he may have a mirror above his computer so in that case he would be correct.
Someone got better gear then what the PvP gear have to offer. So they use their honor on this. I will do that myself :) this baby is awesome
just thought I would say, its also "Unique-Equipped" I dunno if thott hasn't implemented that or what, so you can only have ONE on your person, in other words, do be REALLY careful where you put this, not only for the sake of replacing the gear, but for the fact that if you want to socket up that bracers that are the best in game, so you're gunna get the best gem in game, you may not be able to because this is in your shoulders. just an FYI
Anyone know if you can have 2 DIFFERENT pvp gems on one item? Ty in advance.
I have a question. I am making a Vengeance Wrap to sell, and I want to socket it with one of the epic PvP gems before I sell it. If I socket this into a BoE item, will it bind to me?
yes it will bind to u
whats the problem with you people and socketing when you put things on AH, i dont know if this one does it..but some moron put spellstrike hood up...and put some intel gems in it...err..i dont want intel gems..i want crit and hit gems...not too bad..but he upped the price because he thought it was better..morons
can i have more then 1 Bold Ornate Ruby on a pice of item?
is Bold Ornate Ruby unique?
Can i have multiples of these gems on differnt items i have?
No need to get shirty.
To make it clear, you can buy lots of them and slot each to a different item.
You can then only equip one of those items at any one time.
I trust that is clear, but feel free to continue posting and ignore the bullies.
is it 1 per person or 1 equipped? can I have 2 helms socketed with this? Currently I have this on my storm helm, but I am about to get a PvP helm. Just wondering if "unique equipped" means I can only have this equipped on the item I am currently wearing.
Unique Equipped means:
1) You can
one of the same Unique
at a time.
2) You can
many different Uniques
at same time so long as they are different names.
3) You can
many of the same Uniques
as long as they are socketed in equipment that you won't be wearing at the same time (ie: two helms), or laying in your bags of course.
It all boils down to #1.
Its not Unique anymore? if so im going to buy Vengful gladiator's chestguard and gem it with 2 +20Ap and 1 +10HR or +8HR gem, will work out to spank just about all pve chests till BT/Hyjal
hmm why is the item lvl 60 on this when gems of equal quality are 100? (idk randome observation)
but yea this is prety sweet gona farm up and get one when i get my shoulderpads of the stranger off hydros soon
