Hey all. I'm thinking about pushing all my artisan crafting towards gem making. Some other post talked about a perfect highest lvl gem costing like 1 million gold to craft. What do you guys think about this for $$ making? I'm not saying shoot for highest lvl right away, but I thought about focusing on like mid lvl gems until lvl 40+ then shooting for highest lvl at 60 and famring nothing but that.
Would that be to risky, to long to be worth it? What do you guys think?
Well, I think it'll be worth it for quite a while after release, maybe even several years. The thing is, gems from level 1-5 drop from world, the rest you must combine. By my calculations it takes 19683 level five gems to get one Radiant Star (level 14) gem. That is going to take a LOT of time, and first Radiant Stars will be worth a ****ton, if you ask me.
lol ya this was posted a LONG time ago, so my plans have changed. I still would like to eventually sell a max lvl gem because it's a permanent item. They can be removed from gear and such so you only need a certain number.
