I just bought one of these for 400pp in Erollisi Marr. That's slightly less then you can sell them to vendors for :)
No idea what you are talking about!

The only people that I see here complaining about the high price are non-jewelers. Do you have any idea what the failure rate on these are? Velium cost 220pp and the BD from a vendor is 262pp = 482pp. I am a GM jeweler, I have my trade skill trophy with a 5% mod and a Geerlok with a 2% mod and aa's in JCM. I am maxed int, wis and dex. It is not unusual to have 3 or 4 failures and only a few successes. Do the math. I sell them for 950 on RZ so if I have 2 failures and 1 success, I have lost plat.

I have to agree, not just JC however. Smithing Alchemy, tailoring and all others in some way cost money when aproaching GM level, the amount of plat that goes on reaching that high is Not simple back pocket change.
I think the main thing to remember is the time consumed in gathering the incredients and and combining, time that others spend leveling and making money while we're losing it.
Last thing we need is someone, who has just leveled and expected all others to do the skilling for them, come along and expect us to make ANOTHER loss for their FURTHER gain.
My simple advice to them is get of your lazy behinds and try it yourselves.

I was thinking of getting a Bracelet of Comprehension but I saw the +10 int aug I can buy in N Ro so I thought I would save about 13.3k and get this and that aug.

Or for enchanters use the +8 int/cha from BB. You won't look as uber when people inspect you but that should keep the beggers away :).

Yesterday(7/10/03) some pirates visited Overthere on Quellious demanding money. Seemed like anyone that dished out pp recieved one of these and a stack of peridot gems. Nice exchange for giving 1pp and they were funny little gnomes too.

Drop in prices

The reason BD's have dropped in price so dramatically from 3-4k on most servers to 800pp-1k is that they drop all the time in PoP, the nighstalker camp in PoN for example can easily yield 1 BD an hour, and Ive heard of people getting 4 in an hour, and the entire camp is soloable.

BDs and cultural armor
# Aug 28 2002 at 4:18 PM Rating: Excellent

The price of BDs, IMHO, is getting out of hand. Sure, you can make nice new cultural armor with them, but it takes 2 or 3 BDs per item just for a CHANCE at creating the armor. At 3K per BD, that's 6K minimum for 1 attempt, with less than a 50% success rate no matter now high your tailoring is. This puts the "retail" price of such gear well beyond what you would expect to pay for much better mob-dropped gear.

I myself have given up tailoring because of this. I will never be able to afford to make that armor, and its because of greedy people jacking the prices of raw materials...

I agree that the price of BD's in the bazaar can be fairly high.

However, remember this: it is not the "greedy" people that are selling that makes them expensive... it's the people (dare I say?) "dumb" enough to pay this much. If people were not paying it, the sellers would not be charging the high prices. The power is in the buyers... stop buying it and the price will come down.

The only way that the price could be high due to "greedy" people would be if all of the sellers got together and price-fixed.

We all know that in reality all of the players selling a given item do not get together and fix the price. There is always someone "greedy" enough to undercut everybody else.

And, no, I am not one of these sellers. I have yet to sell any item to other players.

Lastly, the price of making this jewelry is expensive only if you choose to make it so... no one is forcing you to buy the components from players in the bazaar. You can always get a group together and go hunt the materials. For example, BD's drop in Old Sebilis.

Yes, the mobs that drop BD's are tough. This is why jewelry made from these drops have very good stats.

Prices vary widely

Prices vary widely depending on server. Since on non-pvp servers, resistances aren't very important until around 45 and above, this isn't a very common place item to be sold. Because the buyers on non-pvp servers are post 45 players, they have more money to spend, and therefore spend it. Whereas, on pvp, it is a more common item. Resistances are very important starting at level 6 in many cases. I don't recommend this for lower levels even on pvp, because of how expensive it tends to be. Even though it is more common (which drives the price down), it is still going to be one of the most expensive pieces of gear you'll own. I recently bought two of these on Rallos Zek for 1200 pp, and I will be very hesitant to stride into battle with them at such a steep price. Though all in all, this improved all of my resistances significantly.

I think you will find them back up to 4k soon. People will pay that much for resist gear, and with the new cultural eating away the BD, the prices will go up.

Out let me start by saying that I have a Jewelcraft skill of 250. It took me 4 tries before I even got ONE to combine.

Now I get blue diamonds for 600pp...I should farm them but im an idiot. So the cost to me is around 850pp. At 4 attempts Im not just breaking EVEN at 3440pp!

Anyone who wants to do this, make sure the buyer gives you the ingredients and willing to pay at least 4K or this isnt worth it.

Think about it, 2 of these and they have 60 mana and +18 to all resists? As a lvl 60, let me tell you thats HUGE. A pair of these should go for at least 15K or more IMHO.

Good luck guys,

These things are essential on a pvp server. Everyone has the bracers even at 60 unless you get some nice SS/ToV stuff with an effect and better resists. The diamond rings are also universal, only higher end no-drop dragon loots and the coldain ring series can compare in terms of pvp usefulness. Necklace is so-so...there's a lot of better neck items out there, including the 15 MR, 5 CR/PR/FR neck from Maiden's Eye. Most people get something better for the neck after 50. Earring is also so-so...some people wear an EoE for the MR, some wear one of these and something else. The face is mediocre at best..maybe good for Trak or something. PR/DR aren't the best pvp stats to worry about and for wis casters there is certainly a better face item available for 500pp. The helm totally sucks, I haven't seen anyone ever wearing one of those. Froggy Crown with +20 FR/CR is much much better, heck even a Trannix Crown is better. Froggy Crown also has AC so tanks don't mind wearing it.

The Blue diamond can be gotten off the swarm mother that spawns in NK or wc, NK is the far greater spawn.

3500 is cheap for this... At 223 jewelry skill and people selling the blue diamond for up to 2000 with the velium bar costing over 200 the success rate seems to be about 1 in 4. So cost per attempt can be 1200 to 2000. All those ive made sold easily for 6000 each. And I still lost money.

I saw one go for 18k last night on Vallon Zek. Resists are crucial on PvP team servers. They should go for a lot less on blue servers.

Case in point: White Gold Necklace. Common drop, not lore, easy to farm, I can get 4kpp for one easily on a PvP server.

I'm not sure about the other zones, but Old Seb bugs seem to drop them at a fairly common rate. We alpha looted them for several hours at the NG camp and everyone in the group got one after 3 or so hours.

Realizing I'm replying to a post almost a year old... maybe someone else can find this useful.

There's your original post.
"Your info says ..." What info? If you had info that said it needed a special kit, then why did you need to know how to make it or if it was a dropped item?
You need a blue diamond, a velium bar, and a jewelry kit, just like any other jewelcraft attempt.

I think one of the great things about the blue diamond jewelry is that each is a different slot. So, if you used it in 2 ear, 2 wrist, 2 finger, face, head you would get:

Mana 155
Disease 62
Cold 61
Poison 58
Fire 57
Magic 46

Nice set of resistances. Off course you lose a lot of int/wis in the slots, but depending on what you are doing it may be worthwhile.

The stats on this are quite nice but look at the pretty picture i want one just because of that it looks cool
#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 31 2001 at 2:37 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Indeed it *is* nice. The resists paired with a bit of mana make this a very attractive raid piece. It is a bit unfortunate that there is no AC on the item at all but obviously this is caster orientated. Overall though, given the time, effort and money assosiated with making them, I am not sure it packs quite enough in one package. If it were +20 SvMagic and +20 some other save it would be much more raid useful. If it were the same with +75 mana and 5AC even, then it would be great general purpose wear.

Wow, you know what I'm thinking, Why dont we make it 30 ac, so a warrior would wear it, +5 str and 75 mana so hyrbrids would want, heck, as long as we think it's caster gear, lets add like 10 wisdom and intelligence, and why dont we just add lay hands too! come on, Verant isn't gonna make super items, and personally I like it better that way.

There are quite simply no pieces of wrist gear packing more "raid resist" (which I define as being the sum of vs magic+vs whatever your encounter attack is based of) than this.

It is not in the category of über-items, but that's not its purpose. No jewelry item is an über. Many are very good, however (like this bracer).
