I have compiled a list of the recommended gems and enchants for all slots for all specs. This might help our collected crafters make their purchases of the rare patterns in the most beneficial order. There are a couple that my information may not be entirely reliable, but those are marked.This information will have changes for 4.0.6 and will be updated before it is released. In the meantime, if anyone has any suggested changes or additions, let me know.
Updated for 4.0.6. Unsurprisingly, the new meta gems and wrist enchants are best choice for dps, and healers should look carefully at them. _________________ [Image blocked due to inappropriate content]

With 4.0.6, the new wrist enchants are +50 Agility, +50 Strength, +50 intellect. Basically, for DPS classes this is far and away better than the secondary stats filling that enchant slot previously, because the main stat is valued so highly in comparison (typically at least 1:2). Since the next best stat was on the 50-65 of a secondary stat, the new ones are an easy choice.
Similarly with the meta gems, pretty much everyone using the Relentless or Chaotic meta gems will absolutely want the new meta gems:
The Agile Shadowspirit Diamond in +54 agi/+3% Critical Strike Damage - a direct upgrade from the Relentless Earthsiege (+21 Agi).
The Reverberating Shadowspirit Diamond is +54 str/+3% critical strike damage. Since the Chaotic Shadowspirit is +54 critical strike rating, the same amount of the primary stat is much more valuable.
The Burning Shadowspirit Diamon is +54 int/+3% ciritical strike rating - while better than the chaotic, it may be worth considering the Ember Shadowspirit for +54 int/+2% mana depending on mana efficiency. From a pure DPS standpoint, get the new one.
For tanking, these new meta gems and enchants are not relevant.
For healing, the +50 int to wrist is probably your best bet. For the meta gem, the Burning Shadowspirit Diamond is NOT worth it over the Ember Shadowspirit Diamond - the +3% is to critical strike damage. _________________ [Image blocked due to inappropriate content]
