Yes, something like lv 26 dropped it. The Sporali Moldmaster dropped it for me today. Just a warning, he's a severe under-con. Still can beat the crap out of me (40 druid)
Enchanter price
# Jul 25 2001 at 12:17 AM Rating: Decent
Well in Neriak i am veiwed as an ally for the jewelry maker. I use Sympathetic aura and i have the Cha of 128 and i buy it for 58pp. Having lots of Cha really helps jewelry making both buying and selling.

by the way since i am a dark elf they dont like me as much as other people so i see i spent more for it but still you can find star rubies in this big blue building
RE: Enchanter price
# Feb 12 2003 at 12:49 AM Rating: Decent
star rubies can be bought in north freeport. go to the big blue building and go upstairs. I bought mine for 68pp each. and made a star ruby veil. sold it back for 71pp. So i made approx 3pp profit. And yes CHA does affect price, i have a CHA of 140 so you can see much cheaper than what is listed here.

vinamar( dark elf necro all the way)
RE: Enchanter price
# Sep 20 2004 at 12:42 AM Rating: Decent
I fail to see the logic in that statement. I bought for 68, did a combine to make it into something and sold back for 71 making a 3pp profit. What about the cost of the other components for the combine?

RE: Enchanter price
# Sep 21 2001 at 1:59 AM Rating: Good
Beyond 105, charisma doesn't affect prices.
RE: Enchanter price
# Nov 03 2003 at 2:39 AM Rating: Good
From looking at prices with 185 charisma and looking again with buffed 225 charisma I notice a price change, so it does effect far beyond 105.

False. If you have less than perfect faction, more than 105 cha can help with your merchant prices.
RE: Enchanter price
# Jan 04 2002 at 11:10 PM Rating: Excellent
Faction also helps some so cast benevolence before buying
RE: Enchanter price
# Feb 09 2002 at 7:42 PM Rating: Decent
It also seems that some merchants are just stingy bastards as well. No matter how good your charisma and faction, some merchants just seem to be stingy. Meaning Amiable and 128 CHA. Most caster spell merchants aren't stingy. I'm not sure about the Jewel merchants.

generally from what i have seen ALL ELSE BEING EQUAL the stingy merchants are in the places that are most convenient when buying/selling such as merchants near banks or in areas where you can hunt. merchants in town away from the bank seem to be a little better
RE: Enchanter price
# Apr 17 2003 at 10:32 PM Rating: Decent
at 130 cha prices seem to drop about 15-25pp depending on faction and from MY findings, 135 cha will drop the price another 1-2 pp and 150 cha will drop it 5 more pp....but 135-150 cha for a 7 ( tops ) pp decrease doesnt seem to matter to most, or they over look it....but it ads up
RE: Enchanter price
# Jan 26 2004 at 8:32 AM Rating: Decent
Both faction & CHA related to NPC price .

NPC near Banker or Zone often get bitter price because they have too many same stuffs.

(i used to make money in free-port E. near bad guy zone when i was Lv8 HIGH ELF MAG.

BUY Rusty Two Handed Sword ABOUT 3-4gp

1 Rusty Two Handed Sword + 1 Sharpening Stone = 1 Tarnished Two Handed Sword
1 Tarnished Two Handed Sword + 1 Flask of Water = 1 Large Brick(s) of Ore.

1 Large Brick(s) of Ore. sell npc for about 1pp4gp

since lv8 mag can summon 4 slot 100% reduce weight bag , i make quite a few money in this way but i notice the price NPC buy my Large Brick(s) of Ore dropped after maybe handreads of brick . lol....... i guess they dont wanna see ore any more.)

btw, that was ROK era... so don't tell me i could make money in another eaier way.

RE: Jeppie Serpentene

Why destroy it? You can sell to a vendor for over 50pp dependent on charisma.

I bought 1 of these in Grobb from vendor at the entrance for 85 pp (my charisma is 63 and I am viewed warmly to trolls). I bought another in Ogguk from the vendor out front for 91pp (again, charisma 63 but only viewed as apprehensive). Hope this helps.

I don't think that you can normally buy these items in either of these cities as neither of the gem vendors had them.

Star Rubies are also used to make a Lambent Star Ruby for Lambent armor quest for bards. (Lambent boots and Lambent vambraces)
# Dec 23 2000 at 2:11 PM Rating: Default
I got two Star Rubies that I looted off of Hornets in Burning Woods withi a period of 2 weeks of intense hornet killing.

So you can safely assume it is ultra rare. In fact, during the time I got 2 star rubies I also got 4 black pearls and a sapphire.

So maybe it's a fragment of a percent of a chance for a gem to drop off of any mob above a certain level, say, level 40 (not sure of course).

I got one off of an Aviak Twice in one night, one was an Avocet, the other a Harrier. Been hunting aviaks for several levels now and have seen them drop off of rooks and up there. I'll be saving them from now on for future refrence. ;) BTW, the birds drop pearls, aquamarine, topaz, and all kinds of other gems rare and common. have fun.
