    I think they sell for a lot more than 1K each, not to rain on your parade or anything but 50K is market price.

    I am still new to this shard and the vendor I bought them off of had them for only 1k each; there was 10 of them - this is why i posted for 1k each. Any 50% ep ring I have seen sells for 50k so why would the resource sell for 50k a pop? I am looking for the resource not the ecru citrine rings and if they sell that high then forget this post because its not worth it... Glad to see people love posting there opinon; and wtf is a guffaw? and who the **** says chuckle? GAYYY

    You getting them for 1k each was a HUGE score... that's 10k for a 500k turn around sell.

    The reason why they are 50k a pop, is because if you craft a good ring... they go for millions.

    And if you ever managed to craft the perfect ring... which is 1/3 50%EP (with pretty much any mods... although SDI and DCI would be HUGE)

    holy-cha-ching.

    That and the mining rate vs time is freaking stupid bad. We manage to mine about 500 of them every 30 days worth of mining. Then when you create the ring the fail rate is horrible. So out of say 1k ecrus you will get 25 to 40 rings with 50% EP and most of them are worthless with no good mods. So yeah Ecrus are expensive as are the rings when they are sold.

    Thanks Drax and enigma for helping me understand the economy on ecru citrines and the rings... It seems I need to come up with a better game plan :D

    Not sure what they go for...I know they drop more often than ecru, the emeralds drop most I think, then Fire rubies.

    But to get you started with your finances, I will place an order for two butchers war cleavers. I need leather.

    I have a grand total of 4 ecru at the moment. I'd be willing to let you have those, at a decent price ( not 1k obviously ) I'm planning on doing a fair bit of mining early next week so will let you know if I get any more. Yes, I am one of those odd individuals that actually enjoys mining.

    Hush you !

    yeah and I do it the old fashioned way, walking along with a pack animal... I don't even use any kind of beetle..... minermasochism.....

    You should try it sometime ducky, the kerchunk-kerchunk of pick hitting rock can be oddly meditative and soothing ( until some bright spark decides to hit you with a para-explo etc etc )

    Up in the where to shop on Siege sticky above, Petra has listed the gems and their approximate going rates per gem types.

    I think she had blue diamonds at 5k a pop per gem..but check up above.

    As for ecru citrines, they are or have been going for 50k per. I do have some, and had them for 40k per but, atm my vendors are down and being re- arranged.


    I mine them up from time to time, but for my characters personally, I have NO use for them nor the rings, really. Tried making the rings and hung it up ! Pain in the arse to get em to be worth a flip when done, to sell as rings.

    Tis all one of the *wonderous* joys of Mondain's Legacy, ton of ingredients many of them rare thus pricey, torch thru em all end up with junk, rinse repeat need 10 -20 more of em to try to make ONE decent whatever out of the wonderous random or rare ingredients meh...still wishing to make hovering wisps on any shard for le$$ *mutters about ingredients too rare/too pricey to buy, or too hard to get* just to make something, even simple as a simple silly deco wisp in game !!
