    So I was searching the AH for some gems for my new socketed ring that I got last night. I noticed the "best" Legion gems only gave me 21 strength according to the tooltip (http://www.wowhead.com/item=130246/sabers-eye-of-strength). That was going for around 9000g. What I actually ended up getting and using was a http://www.wowhead.com/item=115811/greater-haste-taladite since it gave me +50 haste and was only ~10g.

    So I'm wondering, is there something better than that that scales well at 99? Seems a bit goofy to me that an epic Legion gem scales so poorly compared to a lower level gem.

    Also, can anyone confirm what the actual best enchants are for 99s? Is there anything that scales weird like gems do?

    I know that enchants are disabled for PvP. right?

    What about gems? Are they active in instanced PvP?

    Everything is disabled in instanced pvp other than engineering enchantments as far as i'm aware.

    Legion enchants scale down too much to be of any use for under lvl 101's. The only useful ones I'd say are the neck enchants, but I could be wrong. WoD Gift of ___ are the best ones out there, and Taladites are BiS gems.
    And the reason they scale down so much and are worse, is so that lower level players can't take advantage of huge stat boosts by enchants, and since WoD enchants scale up till 100, they are a lot better than Legion's that scale up to 110.

    I bought one of the epic taladites today for 1k, they give +75. I only have one socket..... might as well waste the gold.
