What should I do with all my gems?

  • #1
    I just wanted to get a few opinions. From what I have read, it isn't cost effective to craft up gems and then sell them. Because of this, I have a bunch of gems sitting in my stash and i'm not sure what to do with them. They don't vendor for much either and haven't sold them yet because of that.

    Also, it seems like it is near impossible to sell gold on the RMAH.

    I'm curious what you guys are doing with all your gems. My thought is to use gold to make gems anyways and sell the gems. It seems that gems are at least selling.

    Anyone have any better ideas?

    The most cost effective way to dispose of gems is to craft stars, and sell those. Granted the tomes are gathered by yourself. The gems cost a direct 500k, and sell for generally over 600k. Emeralds occasionally spike over 700k.

    even making perfect square emeralds spike to about 200k and they only cost 140k to make them. from my experience perfect square emeralds sell amost instantly as well and its an easy 30-50k profit.

    Gems below square are not really worth it, since it cost a lot to upgrade a lower gem to a decent star gem, so stick with square gems and upgrade those to higher quality gems.

    I've never had more than around 500k gold at one time. I don't farm that much, and for that reason I haven't been able to upgrade my gems to the point where I could make a profit by selling them. I pretty much leave them to rot in my stash until they are needed.

    I haven't crafted gems higher than Flawless Square yet. Although I do have a LOT of them sitting in my stash. I personally want to just craft them up to the highest level without the use of the AH, not sure if that's possible, but so far, I haven't used the AH for ANYTHING and I'm in Act 1 Inferno (haven't even tried it yet).
