    Perfect Gems

    What are the best areas for farming pgems?

    Approximately how many pgems do you need (EUHCL) for some decent mf skelemancer stuff? Marrows, Harlequin Crest, Alibaba/Gull, +2 necro/+3summon amu with resists, resists+mf rings.. etc.

    My gear is quite cheap atm and I was wondering how easy it would be to get some mf equipment with pgems.

    I think the chances of finding flawless gems (you can't find pgems, only from shrines/hellforge q) are pretty good either in the cow level or pits (act 1).
    You can find them anywhere though.
    With ~ 40 pgems you should be able to get most mf equipment at once.

    You kill cows by the hundred (seriously like you actually kill about ~ 500-600 a run) in Hell and they have an extra chance of dropping gems on top of all manner useful socketables. The trick is getting the right build to take them out quickly. Poison/skelli is the best I've seen so far but I'm sure Hammerdins would do all right at it too. My meteorb took forever though. I've never tried it but other people swear by 8-player lower Kurast games where everybody runs around checking the chests.

    Thanks! I think I'll just keep doing pit runs. I haven't completed hell yet so I can't do cows.

    Hell council runs are also good for flawless gems and you can usualy get one or two per run which only takes a minute or two. Good gold drops as well which is usefull for gambling.

    Hmm I might try those too. Runes are always cool to have.

    I don't think u'r understanding sjw7 correct here.

    Runs are not runes.

    a council run for example is going to travincal, killing the council, grabbing the money, gems and other usefull stuff, exiting the game and repeating the process in a new game.

    Like Mephi runs or Pindle runs

    About the Flawless gems, LK runs (lower kurast) are indeed a good source for flawless gems and charms.

    You can even find runes there (i believe ber is the highest) but I prefer cow runs with friends (they all know i'm crazy for those flawless gemmies)

    LK runs is good, lots of gems with all those chests and logs and bodies, and can drop up to ber (very unlikely though), but Cows would be better if you can handle it and kill quick.
