I decided to try something just to see if it added up in the long run. I dont know about you all but I tend to get **** loot. A lot of times I get a box of rocks in an end chest so I decided to start hoarding the 500gp gems that dropped, i think there are seven of them; jacinth, star ruby, diamond, blue diamond, yellow diamond, rose diamond, star sapphire. I got a medium gem bag that holds 12/1000 about 6 months ago ( i consider myself an above casual gamer). Today i just checked and i have a bag value of ~700k pp. It is comprised of an average of 200 of each gem type. I have plenty of pp across my toons so im not using this for subsidizing anything but i thought that I would pass it on to those that are new to the game.
*edit* I know all this depends on haggle when you go to sell them but wait you know what? Now that Im thinkin about it. Im tired of having to make a post that is so delineated and defined. i came back in here to post the edit thinking that i was gonna get torn apart because of missing the 'disclaimer' of haggle. Boy do these forums got me trained. I find it kinda sad actually.
