We also know more about the Tome of Burning Jewels. It will also be sold by the vendors and cost (4) Illustrious Jewelcrafter's Tokens. I will allow the discovery of a random epic gem pattern. Follow after the jump where I give my thoughts on the new info.
Same As It Ever Was
So Blizzard has decided to to the normal route of introducing the epic gem designs in the traditional way. If the designs are this easy to obtain will the gems be hard to obtain or have I been giving Blizzard too much credit for how "creative" they might be with the introduction of epic gems?
I'd imagine many people will utilize the specific (5) token patterns at first and switch to (4) token tomes after then have the "important" cuts (namely the red agility, strength and intellect cuts).
While this should go without saying any jewelcrafters out there wanting to work in the epic gem market should make an effort to do their jewelcrafting daily every day.
Also note that the price of Chimera Eyes may go up a bit as almost every jewelcrafter will likely be saving (and then utilizing) the vast majority of their jewelcrafter tokens on epic gem cuts. If you have any Chimera Eyes in your sales inventory don't sell them too cheap before the patch.
If these features go live then we are in for a fairly straight-forward system for acquiring epic gem designs. The real question will be are the gems going to be fairly easy to obtain or will Blizzard make any sort of "barrier to entry" for obtaining epic gems. Now if we only had more information about how the new epic gem transmute recipes are obtained.
