    To sell to the merchants to buy other items.

    Aye, in the context of this testing phase, I would go with Gréagóir: Just sell them.

    One could ask the same thing about the "Spider Silk" and "Venom Sack" items loots from spiders.

    In terms of the full game, I'm pretty confident they play a part as crafting ingredients, or magical reagents. :)

    Any idea what new crafting recipes were put in for this release? I would imagine/hope they are used in one or more of them.

    The crafting element of SOTA is coming alone wonderfully, I can't wait to start mixing reagents together in my lab (look for the house with all the black, sooty marks on the walls).
    So far, I've discovered around 25 resources from skinning creatures alone.

    With the alchemy, some of the concoctions really ought to explode if they go wrong leaving your blackened faced avatar to mumble "Oh vell, back to ze drawing board" and then totter off with smoking costume!

    The jewelled longsword recipe is now;

    - Iron Longsword
    - 2 Emeralds
    - 2 of the orange gems (forgot name)
    - Smith Hammer
    - 1 coal

    It has substantially better stats than the iron longsword, can't remember the details - think the damage was 18 from memory,

    (Sorry for vagueness, at work now)

    Not all the crafting items are listed in your book at start. once you craft something though, it's then written in your book.

    Thanks for telling me this ! Love this sword. The skull sword is also 18 tho.

    the orange gems are Garnets.

    Yeah. I'm starting to get some real joy from crafting.

    SotaCrafter.com and double clicking recipes have been a real help (although Sota Crafter has some incorrect recipes, like the jeweled sword)

    It's really depressing to have to start over with new items every single release tho :(

    Well - the Jewelled Longsword recipe is blacksmithing. I'd imagine as time goes on and more recipes are added (and found) then gems would likely pop up in other trade recipes as well.

    Argh...I was trying to avoid visiting the Graff Mines. I've seen Blue Crystals and Sapphire Gems in Owl's Nest. Anyone happen to know if the Emeralds and Orange gems are found on The Hidden Vale?

    I've had 1 Diamond (white) and 1 Emerald (Green) show up when mining ore. Got 4 silver ore as well but have yet to land any gold.

    I made a jeweled sword. It's basically identical to a skull sword except it's not evil.

    I mined an Obsidian gem in one of the deep forest hexes. Also...thanks for the jewelled longsword recipe!

    Edit: errr...I should have said hill hex instead of deep forest...late night! Anyways, I tried the same node several times again and only got iron, so I'm thinking the obsidian spawn is random and rare?

    Ah, I was hoping there was some sort of jewelcrafting skill. Of all the crafts it feels like that would be the one most associated with magic and magical objects. Thanks :)
