This is the most lucrative job in the game. Jewelers can obtain high-quality jewelry from various ores through the Prospect profession they learn.
With this high quality jewelry, they can make sockets to add many capabilities to their items and other players.
The best type of sockets is obtained from the Reputation of Shattered Sun Offensive area . To get the stone needed to shave these types of sockets, you have to kill the Black Temple creatures and get the stones from these creatures.
It should be noted that the jeweler can make sockets that have better capabilities than Black Temple stones , but it is Soulbound, so these sockets can only be used for the jeweler himself.
For example, one of the sockets made of Black Temple stone gives the player i 10 Critical Strike Rating, while the jeweler can make 12i Crit for the self-socket with 2nd grade jewelry.
It is possible to get jewelry from every 5 ores. Thus, every 5 pieces of Fel Iron Ore with a 17% probability of 3rd grade jewelry and with a probability of 1.1% will give a second grade jewelry . .
Jewelers usually make their items with strong sockets that are made of grade 2 jewelry. Socket item: There are a total of 8 different colors or types of sockets: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, prismatic and Meta. With the exception of meta sockets, all other sockets can fit in any color.
However, combining the color of the jewelry with the socket allows you to use the additional capabilities specified in the item Socket Bonus.
The main color sockets (yellow, blue, red) will be paired only in their color sockets. The secondary color sockets (green, orange, purple) have the ability to fit in two sockets, which are obtained by combining the two colors as Example Orange is obtained by combining yellow and red colors, so it fits in the yellow and red sockets.
The prismatic socket, which consists of a Void Sphere and a Prismatic Sphere , fits into all socket colors except meta, and adds a Socket Bonus. Prismatic sockets add to the Resistance value of all spells.
Primary color sockets only enhance one type of feature. For example, only Stamina
But the sub-color sockets increase the two types of player capabilities, but by half the main color.
For example, there is a blue socket that only gives the player 15i Stamina, there is a purple socket that gives the player 7i Stamina and 5i Strength. Meta sockets only fit in their meta sockets. Which is only seen in very high-level Head items.
Therefore, to meet the meta-socket need of your item, you may skip some Socket Bonuses and apply the required colors to the items.
Black Templ e and Sunwell Plateau creatures as well as Mining Ancient Gem Vein in Mount Hyjal are the way to get this type of jewels. To get jewels from Mount Hyjal with Mining , it is necessary to pass one of the Encampments, ie kill all creatures, Two Boss on the way.
On the jewelry page, sockets are categorized by color, meta, and other sockets, so it is easier to find the sockets needed by a particular color or type. Prospecting at least one piece of jewelry is a must.
