    Quick question

    I slowly begin to return to the realms (I basically stopped playing before 1.10 came out), and I was wondering about something. I used to collect all kinds of gems to transmute them into perfect ones, but I collected chipped gems separately, since they were quite popular for trade in 1.09. My question is: Are they still? Do people still trade for chipped gems in 1.10, or should I just cube them all to start making perfect gems?

    on non ladder i wouldnt collect either, both are worthless now :(

    on ladder you can still trade perfect gems so u might wanna collect them but the 3 chips + sword recipe doesnt work anymore so no one wants them.

    You do know why ppl wanted chipped gems in 1.09 don't you? They were trying to cube those magic cruel colossus blades of quickness.. Since in 1.10 such swords would be pretty much useless (some botd wielding leet might say), I doubt that anyone would need chipped gems. I only use them for upgrading runes. No point saving them for any other reason afaik. If you want pgems, just save all the flawless ones that drop in hell & nm.

    Chips are pretty worthless for trading these days -- however, they are still worth saving for rune cubing; and actually, you'll want to keep a handful of gems in all grades for that purpose.

    Of course, loading up on PGems is a must if you are restarting your BNet career. These days, a pocketful can net you any item you could possibly want, outside of a few top-end gear-pieces, high runes, and runewords.

    Feeling a bit grumpy today, Unsane?

    I recently heard the old chipped recipe was disabled, so therefore I wondered if they still had any trade value. To make sure, I decided to ask. That is all.

    Heh.. you got me. I guess I don't like threads with a title "Quick question" that does nothing to describe the post and makes the all too curious user strain ones mouse finger.. :uhhuh:

    Hmm, I guess your reasoning is okay, and well, everyone has a bad day sometimes. I am not at all new to these forums, and if you knew me a bit better, you would know that this kind of posts is not my habit. I just wanted a quick answer to a little question.

    No harm done!

    talking about gems, you might remember me asking for baalsmallcharms during the rare race. Well I had one left, and yesterday some non-ladder guy offered 30 pgems. I jumped onto one of my old mules, gave him a Guardian angel for it, and cubed on my remaining 1.09 charm. Second try, hibernal 9-19 ;)

    My first hibernal sc ever... now i'm not sure if i should recube it...

    oh, also welcome back to realm play :)
