    You burned 500 Pgems and only got one skiller. Ouch thats really bad luck, usually it only takes 66 or so Pgems per skiller.

    I wouldn't be surprised if dune got more skillers, but didn't keep them. (And you are right with that 66 number, I have just checked it)

    That is a pretty bad result if those are your best 3. that Mf charm has a pretty high req lvl, and the res charm isnt great for a grand charm. could have done with a good second mod.
    I think after that i wouldnt be in a rush to do it all again.

    I would have to agree with the others and say that you were not very lucky. I did the same about 3 months ago (about 800 pgems) and had much better results. Just saving up to do it again !

    nope:( these three were the only ones worth keeping. i got only that one skiller. i rolled about75% with gc's and the rest with sc's. really, 66 for a skiller! so i should have got about 5-6 skillers with 75% of 500 gems?! man i feel much worse now! thanks a lot:D

    Wow that's really bad...I've had crazy skiller cubing luck lately. Rolled about 5 of them using about 100 gems. Not a single one with any suffix though:( Still I can't complain. Why do you guys hoard all those gems and do it all at once?? I usually fill up halfa mule with gems and then cube away. It's fun and exciting to do it once in a while.

    when i play alone i pickup all the gems that drop. (i play at a much more sedate pace when i play alone, picking up wands and armours to sell, and most rares to look at too)
    i cube gems on chrs until flawless then mule them off to an atma stash. i also mule the odd chipped for rune cubing.
    when i have about 4 or 500 flawless i cube them all to perfect. then when i have about 500 perfects i waste them all creating 1 bow skiller! dune

    I've got a question related to cubing (sorry for the hijack still). Has anyone here tried to cube jewels rather than charms? how 'rewarding' is it?

    i disagree. i rolled this one some time ago.

    Coral Small Charm of Vita
    Keep in Inventory to Gain Bonus
    Required Level: 39
    Item Version: 1.10 Expansion
    Item Level: 75
    Fingerprint: 0x90c9b323
    +20 to Life
    Lightning Resist +9%

    i always reroll about 75% gc and 25% sc. have made lots of 7%mf and 11%res sc. often with good second mods. in many ways i like sc's more than grand charms. there was a very comprehensive post here a few days ago about charms. take a look, think you will change your mind.

    Why is it a waste? There are a lot of good things you can get on small charms that are in demand like 7%MF, 11% single resist, 5% resist all, 20 life, etc. And small charms with 2 awesome mods on it can be very valuable.

    Is Uzziah's guide still the best place for info on rerolling with the 3 pgem recipe? I'm nearing 350 pgems (I finally decided to save them instead of selling, on all my MF endeavors).

    I've always found scs to be a lot more rewarding than GC's. The only really useful single modded GC's are Sharp, Shimmering and skillers. Some others become useful with a good second mod, but these three are really the only good prefixes if they are plain.

    Sc's offer a lot more variety in the number of useful affixes that can be found. I tend to find I keep about 1-1.5 GC's per mule (say about 80 pgs) and maybe 4 or 5 sc's for the same number of gems.

    @ neckromancer: I have tried cubing jewels and have never had great results. For some reason I always tended to get a lot more of the junk affixes on jewels than I did on charms.
