Description

Hi

I need some specific chipped gems for cube some low runes...

What is the easier/fastest way to get them?

- Play a little on Normal or Nightmare (I thought about Normal Cows)
- Spend a "Gem Shrine" πŸ˜–πŸ˜£πŸ˜«
- Just play your regular farm on Hell and hope to find one chipped (In my case I farm Chaos and Cows more frequently - from time to time a chipped drops...)
- Another thing πŸ€”

OBS: At first I don't want to trade for this because I want 1-2 and trades are like 10 chipped for 1 rune...
5

Can be used to make Runewords:

Don't have a High level Paladin.
But a Necro Summoner may work on the same role πŸ€”πŸ€” (your minions kill things while you walk)

And maybe just the Act 2 Merc
Holy Freeze
can kill thing in normal too while we are walking πŸ€”

Use one of your useless mules and run around places like
Mausoleum
,
Crypt
, Tower...

Especially chipped Topazes are super rare after normal act1.

As for cubing, there are not that many using gems that are really worth it.

Probably
3
Amn
+ 1 chipped Am ->
Sol
(used for
Blood Gloves
or ring I think)
3
Dol
+ 1 chipped Em ->
Hel
(valuable)
3
Fal
+ 1 flawed Ru ->
Lem
(start of valuable)

3
Thul
to
Amn
(chipped T) is not really useful as reaching
Sol
is tough.

Lowest runes -> cube to
Ral
that sells well.

Others even I do not collect stuff like
Shael
,
Io
... except if I know I need them.

Yes, in Normal the mobs just die when aura reaches them.
I farm Countess for runes and I need some chipped also but I don't want to change the difficulty now, 'cause it 'll change my maps. Maybe another time, after I'll try the Ubers.

I got an
Ist
from her. Thought I was an
Ith
and left there for some time :)

Normal Tower is a great place to get bunch of chipped gems. IIRC you get about 4-6 on average per run (depending on how many champion groups spawn). :)

I have a dedicated shared tab only for gems and gem cubing, it's 3 of each tier + 1 flawless (since you'll rarely use them for rune
Conversion
), for every gem type, and then at the bottom I collect all from flawed and up that are in process of cubing. This means whenever I get 3 of same type I immediately cube and re-sort them again... And I always keep those 3 of each topped out just in case. It not only yield a bigger stack of PGems in the end but also give an access to and from any character if needed. :)

Edit: It looks like this (yes they are in TASRED order)!

Made a test run on Normal (
Stony Field

2 - Dropped 3 chipped on
Stony Field
+
Tristram

3 - Dropped 2 chipped on
Secret Cow Level
(plus
Tal
,

Thanks, but don't worry.
I just need more 2 (I think 1-2 normal runs will be enough - it is quick πŸ˜‰)

On last thing... don't try Normal
Secret Cow Level
to search for chipped gems. Yes,
Secret Cow Level
drop many gems, but as the level is higher, most of them (sometimes 100%) will be flawed or standard...

Catacombs, on the other hand seems a good place:
Level 2 + Level 3 + Level 4 -> dropped 7 chipped

Really any place with a lot of mobs, im willing to bet walking through from rogue camp to andy you'd see you're fill. I've lost count at how many have dropped leveling
Holy Fire
paladins at this point lol. The
Secret Cow Level
drops a lot of various from chipped to flawless that's generally where I go cause I like
The Cow King
set for alts anyways. I'm sure flayers not bad for gems over all also, but likely beyond flaweds not sure though.

As I often run out of
Larzuk
's socket quests, I've decided to level up my mule chars. I play through normal and nightmare until act 5 quest one. This gives me two socket quests. On the way, I normally find a lot of chipped gems and low level runes. And if I find someone who can kill the ancients and
Baal
in nightmare quickly, I can even trade with my mule chars in hell after that.

I'm sure, that there are a lot ways to reach that faster, but I like it this way.
