    Recently, on Atlantic, I noticed on a vendor 3 commodity tickets for 1,000 perfect emeralds each (all 3 gone within 24 hours btw...).

    Now, since the price was particularly convenient, I doubt they were bought gems then put together in one ticket. When price is convenient usually, it means they were mined.

    So, since they were all on the same vendor, I would imagine that it might have been the same miner finding them.

    Since I also mine from time to time, I know what, at least for me, the drop rate is for perfect emeralds. And I thought, WOW, how many miner-hours equal 3,000 perfect emeralds ?

    Anyone knows ?

    Before the scripting anti-scripting wars start the time is relative. It's a script miner or one of the 4 people that post on the boards that do it all by hand *coughs* bullspit *coughs*. I don't believe this is news to you however popps. With a cheating thread already going I don't know why you didn't just add this question to it. Then again, I responded so.....

    Well, I am really curious to figure out with more or less accuracy how much time (miner-hours) it would take to bring back home some 3,000 perfect emeralds....

    My GM miner, from several weeks of mining (in felucca, mind you), all he got is about 35 of each of the various ML gems. Therefore, as perfect emeralds go, about 35 of them in weeks of mining.

    Am I accurate saying that a regular player, playing a few hours per week would need more than 1 year to get some 3,000 perfect emeralds ?
    And this, playing a miner most of one's own playing time.....

    No. Just no. We all know there are scripters in the game. You know it, I know it, the developers know it. Bringing it up daily on here just comes down to trolling.
