At my current gear level I almost never run out of mana, so I would like to fill my blue sockets with spell power + something. I typically gem more for pure spell power unless the socket bonus is worth it (such as +7 or +9 spell power).
The group I'm in has all the raid buffs, if that helps any. I hear spirit scales with kings and the likes, so does that make it better?
What are your opinions on gemming for blue sockets?
If you have no mana problems at all I'd suggest you gem for 23sp in the blue sockets, even if the socket bonus is 7sp.
