Gems are a secondary currency which has the primary purpose of being a money sink. With the failed economy, one of the main issues is the lack of a money sink. A money sink allows for excess money in the economy to be eliminated. You can buy gems from a leprechaun on top of a pot of gems next to Monsieur Fred in Nilgarf. Gems and Ethyreum are two SEPARATE currencies. Ideally this has to happen over a wipe.
Gems will cost 100 silver and will increase every day:
A player can only buy 10 gems as a daily limit, unless they purchase gems for an increased price from the global pot of gems. They will only be able to hold a maximum of 100 gems on their player at one time, and can trade a maximum of 200 gems a week. Players can buy as much as they want from a “Global Pot” which holds a maximum of 10,000 gems a week, but cost 500 silver.
Gems will only be able to be bought with silver from an NPC or traded with other players for silver. They cannot trade items for gems or vice versa.
The Gem Merchant will appear every week at the Clearing where the purple tent is on Friday for 12 hours to sell a wide variety of items, which could either be cosmetic items or, most likely maybe one best in slot item. (again, the items purchasable with gems are up to the developers.) The armor and weapons you buy from the merchant are called “Primary items” and are soul bound to your character and are unable to be traded.
All numbers are up for drastic changes and are primarily used as examples .
