any reason why the optimiser would suggest a jagged in a yellow socket when I have enough blues elsewhere for the meta.
If the Jagged Gem is a green coloured gem, it will/can go in either a Blue OR Yellow slot.
I’ll take a look – you are right that it should not be suggesting that gem. My guess is that there is some conflict going on with the gem/enchant threshold setting and the code that minimizes gem swaps after optimizing.
- any gem goes in any slot.
- thats not the point, its not the optimal solution.
Thanks for that, yellowfive.
I posted a website update that should resolve this issue.
You Snapshot doesn’t work in Retail, so you must be in Classic or TBC - the old Gem rules still apply there, afaik.
This was TBC – they didn’t add gems until TBC, and socket colors only matter in TBC.
It was a complicated interaction between some logic for activating meta gems, minimizing spurious gem swaps, and the gem/enchant threshold for avoiding low-value gem swaps to save some in-game gold.
old gem rules?
all gems go in all slots and they always have. you only need to match colours to get socket bonuses.
