    Beside dragons/ww?

    Gargoyles seem to be the best thing ive come across. 3 gems, one hit kill. Anyone else know of anything?

    Might have to start doing some treasure hunts!

    I usually end up with a bunch after fighting earth ellies.
     
  4. Dragons drop 8 gems each plus scales and barbed leather.

    Yea, dragons and gargs are the best.
    Firesteeds for rubies (15-30), but they don't have a good spawn location.

    @ Gandie: Uvtha plays SP.

    Gargoyles and earth elementals work for me. Bonus with earth elementals is fertile dirt. :)

    Fertile dirt isnt going to be worth anything when SA comes out. It's a reagent.

    ...

    Gargoyles (Level 4 Hyth has a spot that puts you up against 5 or 6 at a time on a pretty constant cycle)

    Solen (the "warrior" ones)

    Earth/ore elems

    Mummies (One good spot in Ilshenar for these)

    Crystal Elems (Though they tend to be very spread out)

    True, Stupid Miner and I'm excited about that.

    I forget, what does fertile dirt do again? Double growth check or double resources or what?

    Not saying its "good" but stone harpies drop 2 gems each and they give 50 feathers (in Fel) and in you go to covetous they spawn so fast you cant wipe the spawn out yourself...

    Dragons, Hiryus have a rare chance of dropping 20, fire steeds drop lots of ruby's. My fave though are the black solen infiltrators by despise in trammel, near the entrance of Wind.

    I believe GM miners can buy a book in Ter Mur that lets them set their shovel to mine the regular (non-ML) gems instead of stone (and in addition to ore).

    Well, good thing for us is that we only have to worry about making it to 70. After that it´s downhill... :D

    For some unknown compulsive reason, I have been saving gems. A couple of months ago I decided to sell off all but 400 of each type. I used gypsy camps to get a decent price.

    Looks like I'll be vending them on LS!

    NPC jewelers sell them. Where did you get 300 each?

    Thats what they cost on siege. NPC prices are much higher.
