    Bracelet Gem Stats

    Post by Shippuu on Sun Nov 06, 2016 3:22 pm

    After some discussion today about gems in Discord, I decided it was worth a thread compiling together some information, since the way they work is interesting.

    To start with, gems themselves do not show the rolls they will have, or even hint at them. Unlike composite materials, the rolls your gem has are not decided until after you insert it into a bracelet. You can't know if it will be a good or bad roll gem until it is already consumed, which makes the expensive Superior gems quite a gamble.

    All four stats on each gem are random, within a pre-defined range. These ranges happen to be very wide, resulting in significant variance. Significant enough that a poorly rolled Superior gem can actually be worse than a merely average Fine gem. In this aspect, Superior gems are not worth using. However, their maximums are far above the max that Fine gems can reach, so there is a great payoff to be had if you get lucky.

    Having said all of that, have an info dump on these maximum and minimum values:

    Addendum: Secondary Stat Ranges*:
    Superior - 25-75
    Fine - 15-55
    Regular - 5-35
    Flawed - 5-23

    * - Sapphires are quirky, and have slightly different minimums/ranges, but the same maxes.

    You'll notice that I chose to include the range between max and min in the main table. Knowing it is actually just as useful as knowing the maximums, as you can use it to roughly guess what the average roll will be, and from there decide if you are satisfied with the stats your gem landed on.

    Gem rolls actually tend to favor landing right about in the middle of their possible range, with a general variance of maybe about 10% away from it. This means that if you use a series of gems back to back, they will all roll pretty much the same stats, unless you get lucky (or unlucky). Here is a table of just the average rolls of each gem, secondary stats included:

    With this information, hopefully it will be easier to decide which gems are worthwhile to buy/use, and which are a bit too expensive for what they offer. If the exact middle ranges are not representative of your experiences with gems, and you have used a lot of them, please leave a reply here.
