    Quick questions about pgems/runes

    Are pskulls considered pgems?

    In the trade values post, I see that perfect amethysts and rubies are worth 2 pgems. So are those generally traded in a trade involving pgems, with those counting as 2 instead of 1?

    Are cubing 3 runes for the higher rune worth it? Or should you only do it for some runes and not others?

    pskulls are considered pgems - the main point of pgems is to "reroll" charms with in order to get a skill gc or "skiller" and pskulls work for this. the recepie is 3 pgem + any magic item (in this case charm) and the mods randomly reroll - however, you need a certain ilvl on the charm to roll a skiller.

    rubies and amys are mostly just considered normal pgems, however to crafters they have more value, i think since they are used to craft blood items and crafter items.

    and you got it right on the last part, it depends on what runes you're cubing up.

    Pskulls are considered pgems in the 3 pgems + magic item recipe? Are you sure?

    So lets say someone is trading 80 pgems for an um rune. Would those 80 pgems consist of fairly equal amounts of skulls and the 6 pgems?

    Specifically, which low level runes would you want to keep and which would you want to cube to the higher rune?

    Yes

    Yes, although 80 pgems is a lot for an um.

    Depends if you can be bothered to fill your inventory with low level runes. It would be very easy to trade mid level uniques for Ko and cube from there upwards. It would also be easier just to keep magic finding for better uniques to trade for lem, pul, um.
