Mined Gems

    What should one reasonably expect to pay for mined gems on Legends?

    Im not sure in game what they go for really.

    I see them on a common site 100 gems for 2.99 - 6.99 depending on the type of gems.

    Which would be about 30k - 70k per gem, if you converted that to gold, assuming 1mil gold is still about one dollar. which seems very high to me.

    I know this prolly doesnt help you at all, but I think it goes to show just a little bit of what a ripping many of these sites pull on items such as these.

    I would guess they are more often overpriced than underpriced in game. Thanks for responding, though!

    I usually buy them in stacks of 10 for 200K. Having an active miner, I know what the drop rate is (terrible), and 200K is worth it to me.

    If you really want to sell them, drop to 15K apiece - i.e., 150K for 10, and drop em on a Luna vendor :) I happen to have an empty vendor space free-of-charge for you to sell ingots and/or gems...

    Another option is to sell them at PRAH auction - use a low end price that you can live with and then let the biiders decide the gems' worth.

    Not sure yet if I'm ready for a vendor... don't know if I want to commit my miner to a life of drudgery yet. lol But it's good to know what they might be worth. Thanks! :)
