I'm training imbuing and need alot of gems for it. I mined an hour, got only 82 gems, only 8 ambra that was the kind I wanted for LRC. I understand buying the gems from npc's may be a nice gold sink but I'm a Siege player and try to do everything without any interact with npc's. Also I wanted to make some LRC suits for young mages but this suits will fast be to expensive for our young mages if I have to buy the gems. I do not feel the drop of gems from mining and monsters are balanced well vs the need for gems to imbuild, special not on Siege where you risk to lose your new suit 5 mins after you buy it. Also I would like to see alot more miners around and I would love to be able to see miners making money selling gems together with ingots and granit.
