Quite a few are up in arms about this one.

I have a JCer but must admit never knew about this anyway. I need to learn to read the god damn manual.

Thats the reason so many raiders picked JC in the first place. Now we loose the best part of JC and when the epic gems come out in next tier of raiding we loose even more ;)

For once I am actually pissed about the change.

Somehow I'd seen this incoming for a while.. with Blizzard's current view on raiding it just had to happen.

What's their current view? That they want to balance professions? The only bad thing about this change is that it took them 6 months to figure out the imbalance. Tailors are up next I suppose. Around christmas.

Yes. it's still better than the other professions (except tailoring). The basis for the current outcry is "they took my candy away".

'Bring the player, not the class', translate to profession; pick whatever you want, it doesn't really matter, so yeah, profession balance.
And yes, it's indeed a bit lousy they only changed it now. Still, I think JC combined with BS is a somewhat strong profession combination since you can boost any stat, not just AP, SP or Stam.

what annoys me most is that theyve overlooked the fact that its not just the JC Gems we will need to change once this goes live, its gonna be expensive to re gem other slots to meet hit cap etc and all we get in return are some tokens..

hands up if you actually need jc tokens.... didnt think so

Lets not forget once the epic gems come, what are JC's getting? 11 sta over the epic gems (from the beta, and stormjewels) woo hoo. Great.

I'd hold that until the epic gems actually go live. For all we know, they can as well add Dragon's Testicles that can be cut to produce new BoP gems that maintain the edge over regular cuts.

Perhaps, but I'm going on what I know. Frankly, I'd rather they maintain the prismatic quality and drop the stats.
