:scratch: Why have people been asking for incredible amounts of Pgems when you can just go into a cow game/baal run and get masses of them easily? :scratch:

Well, for convinience, just like with any other item. First of all, pgems can only drop from hellforge, so the way you're talking about involves collecting flawless gems. In a hell cow run, you may get something like 5 to 10 flawless gems. To make a pgem, you need 3 flawless gems of the same time. Also, keep in mind that cows are harder now, so it takes more time to clear the level.

For people who need to cube a certain item, it may take as much as 10 million pgems to get what they want. You really that someone is going to sit through that much games to get the amount of pgems they want?

Ohh, well, they're mostly used in cubing for almost random mods on the item.

3 Perfect Gems (of any type) + 1 Magic Item = 1 New Random Magic Item of the Same Type
You can use this formula to get another chance at a Magic Item of the same type. The ilvl = ilvl. This means to use 100% of the ilvl of the input item. It's important to note the difference between "the ilvl is set to a fixed number" like what happens in some recipes and "the ilvl of the output is exactly the same as the ilvl of the input" as is the case here. So if you're cubing for +skills Grand Charms, for example, you want to use Charms starting from late Nightmare, not ones that dropped in the Normal Blood Moor. You can use this formula (with an Amulet) to create a +2 Skills Amulet. And you cannot Gamble one before Character Level 84. Be warned however, that the chances of getting that on an Amulet might be very low (considering everything is available) and it might take a lot of tries. Rare Items cannot be used with this formula to create new Rare Items. You can also use this on Charms and Jewels.
