Gem Cutting

This is about the process of cutting the gems that can be set in rings. For the Agency mission to cut five gems, see Jewelry (Daily Mission). For the process of making the rings from metal, see Filigree Rings. For the process of smelting down metal from rings and other loot, see Precious Metal. For the process of assembling the ultimate product, see Jewellery

Gems and rings drop well in Biomare, gems notably from Bloaters and Floaters. The Backyard bosses or any Dyna Camp Boss can drop gems and rings. Bloodcreepers and other spider enemies drop rings and gems. Lower quality gems and rings are easier to cut. Cutting gems increases the value of the rough gem by about 2.6 times, as one might expect-unless one was expecting them to do what metal loot items do when smelted into metal and decrease in value. Cutting also allows a 50% increase in the value of the cut gem and the Filigree Ring when the two are combined to make Jewellery.

Required Skills[edit]

Tradeskill Process[edit]

The combination of items in Anarchy Online works as follows:

Open the tradeskill window (Shift + T). Here you can place the two items you want to combine in the left and middle part. The resulting Item will be shown in the right area. Missing skills, or non possible combinations will be shown below. A detailed look on the resulting item is possible with a simple shift-left-click on it. It is recommended to have free inventory space before combining items, else the item will end in the overflow window.
