Gem Cart and ML Gems

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Fortyniner, Aug 23, 2009.

    According to the description, "Gem carts gives 5 random gems (including the new ML gems) per 24 hour period".

    I have had a gem cart since they came out, and I have never received anything except the regular old gems.

    Has anybody else?

    Ahh, 10th year reward.
    Did a search and they only give out classic gems.

    Blessed
    Comes in a deed - "Deed For A Mining Cart Decoration"
    Ore cart gives 10 ingots of a random color (from Iron to Valorite) once per 24 hour period
    Stores a maximum of 100 ingots. Retrieve the resources by double-clicking on the cart.
    Gem carts gives 5 random gems (classic gems only) per 24 hour period
    Stores a maximum of 50 gems. Retrieve the resources by double-clicking on the cart.
    All players with "friend" or higher security access can collect the resources.
    Any accrued resources will be preserved if you customize your house or redeed the cart. However, if you switch between the ore and the gem cart, the resources will be lost.
    Requires 6 tiles in a 2x3 arrangement to place.

    Somewhat related... the gems I get off my gem cart, don't stack with my existing (non-cart) gems. Is there something I can so to combine them?

    Did you find that description somewhere official from EA/Mythic, or is that just what you thought it was supposed to do?

    As far as I've ever heard or read, it was classic gems only, which is why I only bothered with mine carts.

    They originally said they would give the ML gems, before the item went live, but changed it when the items actually reached testing.

    My quote was from the Playguide.

    Yes, have received new ML gems on my gem cart. Will check later to see if they still do. All the mined SA gems were plain old fashioned gems though.

    Yup still do. After server up, was given 5 pink round amethyst gems, and 5 diamonds shaped like the classic citrines.

    so these would be like the gems that dropped when the Crimson Dragons died, and when the strangers in the dungeons (with the pretty blue boxes) also died?

    as for stacking, I have the same trouble with the logs from the stumps... they don't stack with my old logs, but once cut into boards the planks stack

    Yes those are the ones I get now and then...I collect only when the carts are full, if that makes a difference. The stump logs are named differently, hence they don't stack.
