    Chip question

    Not the edible kind, nor the casino ones. Chipped gems.

    What would be the best place to farm chipped gems? I am specifically after chipped emeralds and rubies. The abundance of shaels and dols from my countess runs makes my mules crying for space so i thought it might be a good idea to Cube the Shaels into Dols and Dols in Hels which has much more use in Trade value wise.

    I was thinking either the Fallen/Carver camps in A1 or Tal Rasha Tombs in A2? Anyone has extensive experience with collecting Chippies? :p

    Thanks!

    Normal act 1 and maybe act 2. Preferably crowded areas.

    I throw away excess shaels BTW. Upping low runes once is OK, but shaels need two upgrades to turn into something useful and collecting 4 chipped gems of certain types to produce a single Hel rune isn't worth the efforts IMO. I keep Dol runes, however, and I find enough chipped emeralds to up them without visiting particular areas.

    I heard that arcane sanctuary and tal Rasha tombs are good for farming chipped gems. But it all depends on luck really.

    When I used to play Cows was always a good place to find gems.. So maybe run a game of normal cows and check it out? ;o

    Ghosts and the like cannot drop armors and weapons, so their chance to drop the other items increases accordingly. The problem with the ghosts in the Arcane is that they are often flying in the void, so their drops disappear when being killed.
