So the rarest @#$% green gem is the most common JC daily for the past two weeks and this is getting @#$% expensive and annoying to boot.

I swear they broke/nerfed the drop rate on these things a patch or two ago as I used to easily see 5-7 per 10 stacks of elementium and now I'm cheering if I even manage to get 3.

Know what you mean

After doing some mining this evening I had: 10 pyrite ore and 168 elementium ore. Got a bunch of rare gems as a bonus (seemed a bit higher than usual), but only 2 of the nightstone.

Maybe that's your problem. Wowhead lists it as having a higher drop rate from Obsidium.

I crushed 20 stacks of elementium ore two nights ago. I got 18 nightstones. Funny thing is, I had such bad luck with nightstones previously that I regularly had to buy one or two for the JC quest.

I also have accumulated nearly three stacks of amberwhatever (the yellow gem) but only one stack of the comparable orange gems from the crushing I've done in the past few weeks.

I am convinced that all of our experiences with this point to the existence of a scientifically provable formula which I will give the name: Retrograde Numerical Gestationalism. Also to be known as RNG or cynyck's Postulate. I don't know what a postulate is, but if mom were alive she'd be so proud of me right now!

I've been prospecting obsidium and I never have a problem getting them. I never get the nightstone daily either. I always seem to get the jasper one when I have no jaspers and then prospecting is bleh.

All green-quality gems have a higher drop rate from Obsidium - prospect it for greens, prospect Elementium for blues (for Elementium, the proportion is reversed).

I wish it was the most common JC daily on my server. I've got just about 2000 of them in the bank right now. Taking up a lot of space!
