Gemming as Affliction
Return to board index
I've seen a lot of contrasting opinions/information regarding gemming.
I've seen some people say to favor intellect (
) until a certain iLevel, then favoring Mastery (
), and others saying to favor Mastery once you hit 90.
Just wondering what other people's opinions are.
According to Icy Veins and some napkin math that some high-end raiding warlocks that I know did:
Red sockets should be int + mastery hybrid gems, unless you're a JC in which case you use 2 of the JC gems and the rest int + mastery. Blue sockets should be hit + mastery (or - yikes - pure hit if you can't reach the cap through reforging out of crit) and yellow should be pure mastery.
Int + haste gems are also viable for red or yellow sockets to reach the first haste threshold - which is much lower for goblins, so I went with mastery.
to reach the first haste threshold
4250 for goblins, 4717 for everyone else.
