LOL, I bet this is Bejeweled Blitz.
Despite being a Toy, this item is not part of the Toy Collection tab. Blizzard is toying with us!
Sounds like this toy will be some sort of
, a puzzle game very popular.
There is an achievement related to it,
, so expect it to be a good seller at the Auction House.
On a personal note, I don't know if it's good or not to see mini games implemented in WoW (as you may be aware, this is not the only mini game being implemented; see
), but I am dreaming to see Hearthstone to be playable in every Inn of the World of Warcraft, so I'm not against this kind of stuff, 100% optional and something different to do, maybe when you wait for a group to form or before raid time.
Sucks that it isn't going to be like that old Bejeweled addon, so you could use it while fishing or flying or doing other boring stuff. Atleast I think so?
Great, now I can finally put my Huniepop skills to work!

Socket to Me
: Jewelcrafting Quest
Inside the first cave to the left as you approach the ravine, within the Greyscale Enclave.
One of the harder to find items required for the quest, it is located inside a cave in Highmountain. Path entrance to the ravine is located at (55,67), which is west of Stonehoof Watch, Highmountain Flight Path. Follow the snow covered paths up the mountain toward Highmountain Peak.
The entrance to the cave is in a ravine (55,75) and upon entry it is named Greystone Enclave.
Follow the right wall into the cave, clearing any hostile NPCs that block your path. After the first two rooms, you will come to a raceway area called Underslog. The hostile-NPC Amberstone Earthwarder is located at the back of this room, behind two waterfalls.
Upon death drops the quest item, Crystal Shard.
- Vale of Eternal Blossoms (14,65)
A friendly NPC Golden Hare that bounces around the location, upon interacting with the Golden Hare you receive a
, which when used provides the quest item, Crystal Heart.
- Deepholm (58,19)
A hostile NPC that drops AoE on the ground, easily avoidable. Upon death drops the quest item, Crystal Core.

A hostile NPC, easy to kill. Upon death drops the quest item, Crystal Scale.
Adult Truesilver Crab

- Crystal Plume Object - Moonglade(33,40)
A lootable object at the quest location, you receive Crystal Plume from it.
** NOTE **
Unlocking the Cataclysm Portals in Stormwind makes this quest much easier/quicker, using them to travel to and from the locations back to Stormwind and other accessible portals.
When the quest is completed, you receive the recipe
Eye of Prophecy
All gems are obtainable through prospecting, Infernal Brimstone is acquired from World Quests or by Miners.
I used to have the Peggle addon back in Wrath and loved using it while waiting for people who went AFK between pulls. I still have it, but it just throws constant errors because Popcap hasn't touched it in 8 years.
I look forward to this.
Anyone have a video or pictures showing how it looks in the game? I have such high hopes but I'm really trying hard to keep my expectations low.
You can run and move with this out at the same time (avoiding fat mammoth players and other annoyances in game), play somewhere safe as combat forces you to close the game. Can't play while mounted.
Everything you need to know about JewelCraft.
Given that this toy is pretty expensive at the moment, I'm sure some people are hesitant to buy or craft it without fully knowing what it is (though, the basics are obvious). Also important to note that the toy, like all others, is account-wide. It also has no cooldown!
JewelCraft plays like the very popular Bejeweled game - the object is to score as many points as possible by switching the location of 2 objects to create a horizontal or vertical row of 3 or more of the same kind. When you find a match, that row is destroyed and the objects above it fall to fill the grid. Each match grants you points, more depending on how many are destroyed in a single move. Usually there is a time limit in this game, but WoW's version does not appear to have one.
When you use the item, you gain a buff that will activate and display the game-board. It is important to note that there is no UI associated with the game; instead the 8x8 grid is attached a short distance away from your character's face, rendered in the game world. You'll want to zoom in to first-person to play and I recommend finding a relatively smooth, monochrome wall as a background to make it easier to see. Other players can see you do the looping "crafting" animation, but cannot see your board.
You can move and cast abilities while playing, but entering combat will cancel the game.
If you earn 250,000 points in a single game, you will earn this achievement:
. Do note that the yellow text that pops up after successful moves is your
, not the number of points you earned for that move.
• Bejweled in WoW!
• Account-wide toy. No cooldown.
• No UI, game is rendered as an 8x8 grid in front of your character.
• "Jewels" are the creatures you encounter to obtain the recipe, rather than actual gems.
• Other people can see the looping activity animation, but not your game board.
• You can move and cast, but combat cancels the game.
• The yellow text displayed after every move is your current score.
for scoring 250,000 points!
I actually saved up all the mats I needed for this, even buying out ore stacks from the auction house to prospect, because someone told me it was used to get more gems, like maybe getting a certain score rewards a rare gem, but that was not the case... It just sells for less than you would get for the gems used to make it.
So a couple tips:
When you first start playing you can hit alt-z to remove the rest of your UI so its easier to see (Alt-z again to restore).
Zooming in (mouse wheel) also helps to see it better.
If you can find a wall or something to stand next to and stare at it makes a better background making it easier to see, standing next to mailboxes or people or anything like that can be annoying and if they are interactive you might click on them instead.
After I got the achievement I decided to keep going, I was at about 942K points when a squirrel ran in front of me and i accidentally clicked on it instead of the game piece, that put me in combat and the board despawned.
I looked in statistics to try and see my high score but couldn't find it tracked anywhere :( Am I missing it?
Became bored in Dalaran. Hit 1,000,000 with ought any problem. I'm curious what the highest score will be at the end of legion?
Back in the grand old days of Burning Crusade, Popcap made addons allowing you to play Bejeweled and Peggle in World of Warcraft. They were perfect for long flight paths until you finally ended up getting epic flying. Spent so much time playing those.
I wonder if this is a nod to those addons?
If I remember correctly EA bought Popcap games and both addons dissipated.pretty quickly thereafter.
ON an unrelated nostalgia rate mention, normal flight speed being 60% sucked. Slower than the epic ground mount.
Hmm, I stopped my first game at a score of >700k. What is the point of a game you can not loose?
No way to keep track on score?
If you're leveling JC, this will still award 5 points up through at least 795.
I was at 789 and wasn't sure, so I crafted it. Did a few Skystone Pendant rank 3 necks to get to 795, then last 5 points at Darkmoon Faire. Since all my necks went green at 790, this was a better value.
The game is a buff, so to get rid of it, just click on the buff
How does this thing work? I click on the icons, but nothing happens.
It doesn't seem you need a specific skill level in jewelcrafting to be able to start the questline that learns you how to craft this toy, you just need to have completed the previous quests. I was unsure of this myself. The first quest that starts the whole jewelcraft questline is
Why this is even called jewelcraft? There isn't jewels, there are just some bird, rabbit, etc trash.
Idea is to get 3 of the kind in horizontal or vertical row:
