Never heard of this myself, but I tend to stay away from the channels and such. If it was ladder, you need a regular emerald to cube an Ohm, but since it isn't, I have no clue.Ehein said:why do people on US-East want regular (square) emeralds? I have a bunch and dont know there significance. Thanks anyone.
You can't wear elite items (not even exeptional) at that low a level. Better go with a crown and some jewels with -15% reqs and +maxdamage or %enhanced damage. May even want to try rare jewels.Tib said:I can answer this as a heavy demander of normal gems.
I require Amethysts (for helms) Rubies/Sapphires (for armours) and Emeralds (for weapons). Such items are common on poor LLD and LLD mercs.
As a Low Level Dueler, I hate exceeding the lvl 13 or 14 point, and thus am unable to use Flawless gems. With the merc in a similar situation (stuck at lvl 13), it's hard to pop good armour on 'em due to the weight resrictions. Thus, you pop 3 amethysts in a wussy shako for 18 to str, and you're now able to equip a 4 soc armr. Since the STR bonus helps physical damage anyway, it's worth giving up 2 possible ruby slots (giving up 3 for amethysts in helm but gaining one in 4 soc armr vs 3 soc armr) for the extra few dmg points.
I'm wondering if he meant a basic 3 socketed cap, but I could be wrong.helvete said:You can't wear elite items (not even exeptional) at that low a level. Better go with a crown and some jewels with -15% reqs and +maxdamage or %enhanced damage. May even want to try rare jewels.
