NEW Gem Crafting Calculator

  • #1
    Hey all!

    I just through together a very simple gem calculator. You start by selecting the quality of the gems you are starting with, the quality of the gem(s) you are trying to make and the quantity desired. The output is the required mats you will need (starting gems, crafting gold and tombs).

    Let me know if you find it useful and/or things that you would like to see added to help you out as a quick reference when crafting gems. Thanks!

    7.6.12 Updates
    • 15% AH fee factored into the crafting cost so that the minimum sell price to make a profit is now displayed in the results.
    7.2.12 Updates
    • Added new auction house pricing feature that allows you to enter the current price of the starting gem quality as well as the prices for additional required materials (pages/tomes) giving you a grand total cost if you wish to purchase items from the AH.

    well done, used an excel sheet before, but this is much easier
  • #5
    That was my inspiration for this little project. I wanted something clean and simple!

    One correction to make. Your calculator states that you need "Tombs" for crafting the higher level gems. It's actually spelled "Tomes" but nice job overall.

    works awesome now i was able to prove selling gems is worthless on AH after you take out the 15% the profit is small at best, max level gem is selling at a loss lol. Thanks for the stuff and great work!
    Sometimes you don't always know where you stand... until you know that you won't run away.

    Hi thanks for the calculator, may I make a suggestion? Could you make an option for selling that minus'es the 15 percent off of "Said gem" so we can see if we will make money if we buy the materials and make it?
  • #15
    awesome dude :)

    is there a chance u could include the 15% ah in another form ? So we'll know what the AH price should be to be able to make a (small) profit by putting it up.

    Even tho this method prolly wont make profit, or atleast in EU where the AH prices for gems (even radiant star) are cheaper then actually having to craft it yourself.

    GREAT CALCULATOR!

    I guess you could also add the "time" required for crafting these gems, summing the time for making each previous one plus the final one.
    This would also help people to decide if the time spent crafting the gems are worth it, or if they should better buy an already crafted gem.

    Doesnt add the tomes of jewelcrafting costs to total.

    example:
    Square -> Flaweless Square (1gem)

    booh copy paste doesnt work -

    Ah Price = 1
    Tomes of Jewelcrafting = 20

    Says
    gem: 2x 1 = 2 gold
    ToJ 1x 20 = 20 gold
    crafting cost = 100 gold

    Total 102 gold (should be 122g)

    also it seems that if you have a start gem that requires Pages of Jewelcrafting the calculator adds the costs of Tomes of Jewelcrafting twice.

    Perfect -> Square (1gem)

    Ah Price = 1

    First with ToJ = 0
    PoJ = 30

    Gems = 4x 1 = 4
    PoJ = 2 x 30 = 60
    ToJ = 1x 0 = 0
    crafting costs = 225
    Total 289gold (correct)

    Now with ToJ = 10

    Gems = 4x 1 = 4
    PoJ = 2 x 30 = 60
    ToJ = 1x 10 = 10
    crafting costs = 225
    Total 309gold (should be 299g)

    ToJ = 20 -> Total 329g etc.
