GEMMED ITEMS Q!
« on: November 26, 2009, 07:15:02 PM »
There are some equipment studded with a gem or two like: Sapphire sword of Power, Emerald Composite Bow, Agate Bronze Chainmail shirt.

So, heres the thing I don't get...

Are these items item(after being crafted)+gem or a seperate recipe from normal ones?

I've seen tier 2 users making these so I assume that it can be bought in tier 2 provinces, and out of all of them Falloni Grounds is the only one I haven't been to.
So...

Can you buy gemmed item recipes in Falloni Grounds?

Is there a way to you get your hands on sapphire and ruby except kill-loot and market?

  • Gemmed items like emerald chainmail or opal gloves are created from recipes made specifically for emerald chainmail or opal gloves. You cannot add a gem to an item after it is crafted. You can find these recipes as dropped items or buy them in the auction. You will not find them in the NPC Recipe stores.
  • If you have seen someone using them, they were probably crafted by someone (maybe themselves!). It is possible that they were bought from an NPC Shop but doubtful (the shops are very expensive).
  • You can buy any items from the auction -the auction does not change regardless of your location. The store in each province is different so it is possible that a nice item will be available at the NPC Shop you are in. If there isn't anything you like today, it will be different tomorrow.

There are a few ways to get gems.
  • dig them out of the ground (if you are a stonecutter).
  • buy them from the auction $$
  • ask a guildmate to give/sell you one. That might be cheaper than buying on the auction, but you may have to give your guildmate something in return as payment

Hope that helps!

That was UBER-helpful. If all the replies were as coherent as this one, it would make the readers' lives so much easier as well as the poster. Many thanks!
