    finding PGMS

    Very easy question, where should I go to if I want to find a lot of PGMS (or flawless)? Just a place easy to run with a high profit, and no, HF is not an option. Just to hard to find players that want to offer it, I think.

    Chests seem to have a good chance to drop gems and runes. Try also the travincal council.. they drop gems often, though it's kinda like berserk barb region.

    Go to Hell. Find an area that you can clear quickly. Pick up all the flawless gems and cube them up to perfects.

    Just pointing out something others forgot to mention: pgems only drop from forge quest, otherwise you have to cube from flawless.

    What about...

    Moo Moo Farm in parking games? Normal cows should be able to drop flawless gems and the more players in the game means the more items dropped, total. They're butter to practically any aura/autoaura, your mercenary shouldn't be at risk, and - if absolutely necessary - you can transfer in the same game assuming you take precautions. After all, they're just gems.

    look at d2data, I think that just hell act one is the way to go. Easy and fast. Or I'm I mistaking? Easier then travi anyway.

    {Foghorn Leghorn}

    Six months on the forum, already more posts than me, yet the boy can't... I say, the boy can't read.{/Foghorn Leghorn}

    Well, I've got two people in agreeance. Normal cows with as many people in the game as possible, i.e. parking or act two/three games. You could also just trade the non-gems you find for a perfect gem or three each.

    Normal cows drops flawless gems very rarely (mostly normal gems and lower). Run NM/Hell cows or Lower Kurast chests.

    NM Cows are not good for flawless gems. I did a few runs with my amazon in games with 6-8 players. Items dropped plenty, but rarely gems and then just gem, very rarely a flawless.

    Flayer jungle, kurast and durance of hate are much better areas for flawless gems.

    @ patonis: By this you mean Hell flayer jungle, kurast and durance of hate right?
    Anyone an idea on the build to use for these. I'd say a bowazon. No PI.

    For those areas mentioned? Sure, bowzon might work, make sure to get knockback though, pesky dolls in durance.

    I'd still pick cows over any other area if I wanted flawless gems however. Javazon does the trick vs cows, even with cheap gear. All you need is a pair of titans (barely even that), something with manaleech, and some items with ias, and cows go down. No risk of taking out the king too, cant be wrong.

    No, NM is enough. These maps have many monsters and chests. Important are full games with questing people. I think Act1 the open maps with many monsters are good too.

    Yes, bowazon. I used my level 85 strafzon.

    I am not to impressed with hell cows. A javazon might be good solo in full games, but i dont know if hell cows drop good. NM cows didnt drop so many gems at all.
