Best Methods to Gather Shadowgem as of 8.0

Shadowgem is the main gem you’re going to get from prospecting Tin Ore. I’ve noticed it can go either way with being a nice sale on the auction house versus nice sales on the crafted equipment it can create, but know that it doesn’t have as many good items for crafting.

★ Profession Required: Jewelcrafting
★ Best Serves: Blacksmithing, Engineering, Jewelcrafting

How to obtain:

There aren’t many ways to gather gems in their uncut form, therefore leaves it to you to decide what method you think is best. These ways are the following:

(a) prospecting ore and turning said ore into gems,

(b) looking for the gems on the AH, which can be expensive, depending on the gem, or

(c) farming a zone for ore, which should be your last choice, unless you need other farmed material.


Prospecting
