Mined gems rarity or RNG badluck?

    I have been mining lately to gather gems for imbuing and was wondering if others have had similar results?

    I have mined up about 100 of all the rare gems , but only about 20 ecru, and about 20 fire rubies.

    Bad luck? or are these more rare?

    Mining for Gems sux doesn't it? I hope that Imbuing doesn't get released with the same amount of gems needed as was in the beta.

    If so, forget magic essance and relics - the real rare ingredient is going to be gems and we will all get used to paying out the nose to scripters for them.

    When I was playing around with imbuing I was going through these in the hundreds.

    How long does it take you to get 100 of any of these? Waay too long.

    Hello scripters....... I can feel them salivating now.
