damn wowhead snitching again :(
Anyone who thinks that Wowhead posting articles like this is what leads to things getting fixed is kinda wrong. If Wowhead knows about it, it means people already know about it...which means Blizzard probably already knows about it. Wowhead likely has the ability to talk with Blizzard more directly than any of us, and passes along things like this directly rather than through public articles like this one.
I honestly think Blizz should just leave this in as a fun little easter egg. It's not like the gems are incredibly overpowered and will continue to scale through SL. It also gives min/max players a reason to re-visit old dungeons. And for the record, the +5 int/+5 vers still drops. Seems to be many variations on these gems, including +1/+1 and +2/+2 versions.

It’s an unintentional mess up on their , it would be tracked by then anyway as they run their own measures to collect data . It’s not “fun detected “ , some people are taking advantage of it which is exploitation .
Are people really salty about this being fixed lmao...
It's not so much a bug, more that they have been ignored for a loong time. They were like this before pre patch, ask anyone doing Herald of the Titans, these gems are (were?) so much better than what we could craft, but a pain to get.Unless the shadowlands gems are similar, there's no reason to touch these since they'll only be used by twinks and have no effect on end game. The only bonus in nerfing them is that I personally won't have wasted time farming them, but I know plenty of people who have...
For all the people saying it's already nerfed, it's not been. You just got unlucky. The stat value as well as type are both random with a min and max. I've received both +1/+1 gems tonight as well as +5/+4 and +5/+5 gems tonight within the last 30 minutes before this post. These gems have been valuable for twinking/timewalking sets for a while now. There's literally no real reason to nerf them as SL gems will be better, and if the gem market hasn't already bottomed out for this expansion's gems on your server god bless you cause they're basically worthless on all the other servers. All this is is a way for those of us bored and want to do a little pre-patch min maxing for poops and laughs a way to do so to a slightly further degree.
you can go legion raids and get items with the same level as Nazjatar Gear (Start quest in naz gives ilvl 60 weapon, legion raids with warforge give 60 too)
Fees like a minor thing to me. Mistakes happen. Stop making such a fuss over it.
Hey wowhead, if you want to point something out to Blizzard, focus on Shadowlands flaws not fun police BFA bugs.
how could have anyone expected this. its only been like this since 2015 where timewalking came during wod.
