Meta gems

From Wowpedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Meta gems match UI-EmptySocket-Meta.png meta sockets. These gems have special requirements that must be met for the gem's bonus to activate. For example, in order to gain the benefits of a  [Tireless Starflare Diamond] there must be a minimum of one gem of each color between all the items currently equipped on the character.

It should be noted that gems which match multiple socket colors can fulfil meta gem requirements for each and any color they match. For example, if a meta gem needs 3 red and 2 yellow to activate, then 3 orange (red/yellow) gems can activate this gem. Also, a gem does not have to match its socket to contribute to a meta gem; therefore the player may choose to lose an item's gem bonus in order to activate the meta gem's bonus.
