Title: Buying Red Rubies
Post by: Dictator X on July 10, 2009, 01:21:49 am
I'm tired of mining infinitely. Paying 2,000,000 each for 4 red rubies.

I'm heading off to South Winter Isle for a mining expedition myself, so I'll let you know when I have acquired the aforementioned rubies you seek.

It's almost more fun to talk in character >.>

Lol, I agree. Thanks for your help by the way! The rubies appear in the form of "mysterious rock" only found in the rocks that contain iron. You take the mysterious rocks and show them to rami, who has a 1/4 chance of giving you a ruby. The mysterious rocks show up 2% of the time while mining iron. Good luck! lol

While we are on the mining subject, what are the odds of actually getting the Whittling XP when showing the blue sapphires to McPerkins? I've shown him a good 10 or 11 with no luck :/

hmm, most of the time I actually get the xp. There are only 2 options, so I'd say 50/50, but I don't actually know. I have gotten it about 70-80% of the time, so I don't know why you have had such bad luck with it. Sorry.

I just got one today. Since I'm doing the farming route, I got a moderately high weaving and textile (top 50 in each) but my construction I only had a skill of 76, and after getting lucky with the sapphire I jumped up to over 100 it was awesome :P

Well it appears my luck is just terrible. I had 7 mysterious rocks, and only got 1 ruby. I guess thats pretty close to the expected ratio, but still :/   I'll keep trying for awhile tonight, it gives me something to do while rewatching the bourne trilogy. (Is anyone else stoked about the new Bourne movie slated for a 2011 release?)

Ok, I sold you all of them. That sure helped my mining out quite a bit, thanks for the motivation :)


Title: Re: Buying Red Rubies
Post by: Dictator X on July 10, 2009, 10:06:46 pm
HOLY SH*T. I can't believe you actually got 4 of them in one night. It took me forever to get 1. You are extreme. Thanks a F*CKTON

:P No problem. If you need help with any other quests, let me know :)

hey if you want more motivation i will give you five mil each for four rubies, or i can trade you dcms


Title: Re: Buying Red Rubies
Post by: Tyler Durden on July 10, 2009, 10:53:41 pm
I'd prefer DCMS. How many dcms you give me for 4 rubies?


Title: Re: Buying Red Rubies
Post by: Dictator X on July 10, 2009, 11:10:39 pm
If by DCM you mean death cap mushrooms, then I'm sorry but I'm SOL there. In all my farming I have yet to find one. Once I do, I will give you one, I think that's a fair trade for 5 rubies, seeing as it takes forever to find one. You can keep the 8 million.


Title: Re: Buying Red Rubies
Post by: arp on July 10, 2009, 11:31:54 pm
i have three but whatever you think is fair  i would also really like some yarn for a couple dcm's whenever you get the chance


Title: Re: Buying Red Rubies
Post by: Dictator X on July 11, 2009, 12:52:02 am
Sorry, rebel, I already got all the rubies I needed from martin. As for yarn, I'm not skilled enough in textile yet.  :(


Title: Re: Buying Red Rubies
Post by: Tyler Durden on July 11, 2009, 01:09:46 am
lol Dictator X, arp is talking to me. I'm giving rubies to him, I don't expect anything else from you man, we are even, you gave me 2 mil each. I was asking arp how many dcms he would give me, and he responded with saying he has 3, he wasn't offering you any. Sorry for the confusion rofl


Title: Re: Buying Red Rubies
Post by: Tyler Durden on July 11, 2009, 01:22:53 am
How much yarn you wanna trade for how many DCMs cubone?


Title: Re: Buying Red Rubies
Post by: Dictator X on July 11, 2009, 06:53:15 am
Well, lmao. My bad, I'm a dork for being so self-centered as to think he was talking to me  :P Good luck in your negotiations  ;)


Title: Re: Buying Red Rubies
Post by: arp on July 11, 2009, 05:45:53 pm
i dont know how much yarn you have, wouldnt happen to have anymore imperial would you?


Title: Re: Buying Red Rubies
Post by: Tyler Durden on July 11, 2009, 07:13:11 pm
I can easily whip up around 500k in a night.


Title: Re: Buying Red Rubies
Post by: arp on July 11, 2009, 08:51:28 pm
ok, and how much yarn would you give for a dcm? im not sure on the rates and i would also like to get the rubies if you are mining for them


Title: Re: Buying Red Rubies
Post by: Tyler Durden on July 11, 2009, 11:02:43 pm
I am mining them, I only have one now, set up a store and I'll give it to you. You decide the Imp Yarn rate, cuz I got no idea :/


Title: Re: Buying Red Rubies
Post by: arp on July 12, 2009, 04:22:25 pm
how a bout one mil imp yarn and 30 golden strawberries for the other two? or is that a little much?

EDIT: is it ruby or rubies?


Title: Re: Buying Red Rubies
Post by: Tyler Durden on July 12, 2009, 04:36:27 pm
Red Ruby

And I'm trying to buy Golden Strawberries, so I don't have any to spare :/
So you are saying 1 Mil Imp Yarn and 4 Red Rubies and 30 GS for 3 DCMs?


Title: Re: Buying Red Rubies
Post by: arp on July 12, 2009, 04:47:31 pm
no three dcms and 30 gold strawberries for the yarn and rubies


Title: Re: Buying Red Rubies
Post by: Tyler Durden on July 12, 2009, 04:49:24 pm
K sounds good to me. I'll sell you the one ruby I have so far, and then would you prefer I whip up some yarn first, or mine you the other 3 rubies first?


Title: Re: Buying Red Rubies
Post by: arp on July 12, 2009, 04:50:48 pm
the yarn if you dont mind... i rarely mine so the rubies would be the last thing i will need


Title: Re: Buying Red Rubies
Post by: Tyler Durden on July 12, 2009, 04:54:20 pm
K I sold you the 1 ruby I did have. Set up your store for imp yarn when you get a chance, and I'll work on some Imp Yarn.

done, and many thanks

Post by: Tyler Durden on July 12, 2009, 05:21:59 pm
Alright well I had 0 Imp Yarn 20 minutes ago, and now I have 200k, so extrapolating on that value I should have your yarn in an hour. When I give you the yarn, do you think I can get a DCM at that time, and the other 2 DCMs and 30 GRs when I give you the other 3 rubies?


Title: Re: Buying Red Rubies
Post by: arp on July 12, 2009, 05:23:25 pm
you can get the dcms whenever you want them  i trust you on that one


Title: Re: Buying Red Rubies
Post by: Tyler Durden on July 12, 2009, 05:24:27 pm
Same here :P


Title: Re: Buying Red Rubies
Post by: arp on July 12, 2009, 05:26:24 pm
set up a store for the dcms and i can have them to you in a minute or two
