Shadow Priest Gemming

Here we will give you all of the gems you will want to use as a Shadow Priest. Typically you will want to ignore socket bonuses unless you can get them with only one split gem and they offer a strong stat such as Bonus Damage.

Sockets Gems
Meta Socket Ember Skyfire Diamond Icon Ember Skyfire Diamond
Red Socket Runed Crimson Spinel Icon Runed Crimson Spinel
Yellow Socket Reckless Pyrestone Icon Reckless Pyrestone (best) or Veiled Pyrestone Icon Veiled Pyrestone (hit)
Blue Socket Glowing Shadowsong Amethyst Icon Glowing Shadowsong Amethyst

Ember Skyfire Diamond Icon Ember Skyfire Diamond is the new meta gem offered in Phase 5. It is by far your best meta gem option available.

The Runed Living Ruby Icon Runed Living Ruby will be the gem that you should be putting into most gem sockets, even if the colors do not match. Meanwhile, use Reckless Pyrestone Icon Reckless Pyrestone and Glowing Shadowsong Amethyst Icon Glowing Shadowsong Amethyst to unlock any worthwhile socket bonuses that require a yellow or blue gem.
