I’ve been receiving a lot of tells lately regarding gem choices for priests. I’m not a jewelcrafter (the closest I have is a lvl 28 JC alt!) so I’m probably not the most “qualified” to answer any gem-related questions, but I can offer a basic list of healing gems you might consider and a good resource to find more information. Your choices may reflect your deficiencies or play-style so which gems you prefer is often a personal preference. After all, we all may want pretty shinies and jewels, but if we don’t have the right ones, in WoW standards, we might as well be walking around with garbage stuffed between our gear. So without further ado…

The Resouce: WoW Gems: Xornot’s Gem Finder
Let me be honest… I swear by this website. Every time I receive a raw gem, I open this up to see what can be made for it. Every time I get a new piece of slotted gear, I double check to see the different ways I can socket my gear. The site allows you to filter the gems based on stats, +heal, mp5, spell damage, color, and gem-type… You really have no excuse not to use it. So favorite place it, love it, cherish it, and use it!!

The Gems:
Some gems are obvious choices for priests and I shall post links to those sorted lists for the lazy.

After being out of commission due to a medical emergency (getting my gallbladder removed) I am back! For the general information of both me and my guild I’ve put together a Crafting Page. On it lists everything Mercuri can brew/sew. Hopefully it will prevent the slew of pms saying “Can you make ______?” from the same people – just check the list! I’ve only included Burning Crusade recipes and patterns so anything before the expansion will still need to ask for. I’ll do my best to keep it updated.

The Loot Rules for Divine Might have changed! And due to it, lucky me has gotten some nice off-spec gear (instead of DEing them!) This week I’ve picked up Nethershard Girdle, Brooch of Unquenchable Fury, and Trial-fire Trousers! ANYTHING to help a Holy Priest solo is a welcome addition to my armory.

Next week is a “Progression Week” and Divine Might heads for Gruul! That ugly Gronn is goin’ down!
