Each Gemcutter's Prism will typically raise the excellent by 1%. Improves the top quality of a Gem. Unless you are starting your adventure on a new league, the majority of the Gems with high excellent will be more affordable than Gemcutter's Prisms expected to enhance its'superior to corresponding levels.
NO.1 How to Use Gemcutter's Prism
Mainly because Gemcutter's Prisms are relatively uncommon, it is not advised to apply them to gems that have small or no high-quality. Nevertheless, selling a Gemcutter's Prism together with a level 20 gem to any vendor will give you a 20% high quality, level 1 version of that similar gem. Just because it's attainable to level a lot of Gems at as soon as, it is usually thought of a cost-efficient technique of getting 20% rare gems in the event the player doesn't have the means to acquire a significant number of Gemcutter's Prisms.
Gemcutter's Prism something from 0 to 20 high-quality is generally never going to be worth it. Simply gems with high-quality are relatively widespread drops, and in some cases, higher high-quality gems (15-20) are somewhat typical in Uber Lab chests (and a lot of people today straight up farm Uber Lab as their most important 'thing' within the game). There's also a prophecy guaranteeing a 20q gem dropping that is somewhat widespread.
Even so, Gemcutter's Prism gems with some good quality to 20 might be worth the GCP price.
At this point in the league, the above is all you might have to complete with gems. Spend interest to sound quality on drop-only gems having said that as some other individuals have pointed out (Enlighten/Empower/Enhance/Added Chaos Harm - the excellent quality value on them is usually a bit various than usual).
Vendoring a level 20 gem for any lvl 1/20q is anything only worth carrying out the first league when 20q gems aren't as available (i.e., actually very first days/week of an association). You should buy your gems this late in the league, since the marketplace is oversaturated with corrupted 20/20q gems (failed Vaal attempts for 21/20q or 20/23q), tanking their value each of the way into 'very cheap' zone. If you're feeling adventurous on the other hand, feel free of charge to have new 20q gems and level them to 20 yourself, then Vaal and hope for all those outcomes :p They're worth quite a bit in numerous situations.
