This thread is a compilation of info of other threads scattered around the web about farming of gems and runes. I just gathered all the info and made it more accessible, I take no credit for discovering these chalices.

Blood Gems

We will work with cursed radial and triangular gems for physical damage since those are the easiest ones to farm and most of the time the stronger ones.

What we want is to farm the first boss until we get the gem that we want unless it specifies that there is no boss to farm and instead is a specific enemy inside the first layer of the dungeon.

Note: You want for physical damage Radials + Triangular gems since good waning gems that increase more than 23% ATK UP are hard to find. Get weapons versions (Usually the normal weapon or a uncanny version) with 2 radials and 1 triangular imprint slot.

Note 2: Mixed ATK UP + ARC damage gems are good gems for weapons with poor base damage and scaling and they are also good for weapons with split damage as are Burial Blade and Blades of Mercy.

Note 3: There is no 100% secure drop, sometimes you can get ARC gems from a boss that should drop physical ones. Keep trying until you get what you want.

Note 4: Nourishing gems are one of the best gems for Tonitrus.

Awesome, very nice.

May I ask, what's the final boss for the Pthumeru Ihyll dungeon? I'm willing to give it a go as long as it's not Bloodletting Beast, lol.

Those are nice gems, but the very best drop from last bosses. The max you can get on a Tempering gem (according to the guide) is +28.1% phys AR. The min-maxer in me wants this gem nao.

Also max Odd Tempering gems give a flat +93.8 phys AR (guide), that's more than 28% for many weapons. Haven't found any that give such a high bonus. Could a Cursed gem be just Odd Tempering? Also Cursed ones I see have a % bonus with a minor flat increase and the bad bonus. Are we missing these gems because of the cursed ritual?

I only did the first layer boss of each one so I don't know which boss that could be. 27% ATK UP is the maximum for these gems. I just farm the first boss because it's extremely time consuming to go to the third layer to farm abyssal ones but if you find anything after going to the 3rd layer please report it here.

The Odd Tempering is a very rare drop I found one that adds plain ARC damage but in my case it wasn't as good as a % one.

I'm not 100% sure but after farming cursed dungeons I only got cursed gems so we are most likely missing them.

Not enough high level but this was a chalice if I remember well.



Cursed ATK UP gems are usually better than scaling ones.

Double post FTW.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... HmPIU/edit

Someone just posted this on Reddit, I checked a few and they seems to be legit. Some of the Glyphs I initially posted are there too.

Happy farming. I will re organize the OP later after checking those glyphs.
