It'd be a simple enough change to make opening them slightly faster and have the results be noted.


my original post was a "perfect situation" sort of thing to make the math easier to do and doesn't take the time needed to obtain the geodes into account, no matter how fast they are opened the fact is that they are near useless currently as their rewards are simply not good enough. currently there is a 50% chance to get a single spirit shard from one which is frankly a bit ridiculous.

Okay: Again - I suggest removing semi-precious gems (opal, jade, topaz),

Yes, please. It's a hassle to get rid of them while opening a large number of geodes. These gems have too limited use to be assigned to higher level geodes.

Jade and topaz are actually worth much more than sapphires and almost as much as emeralds, so removing the semi-precious gems would actually probably hurt your profits, not help them. That being said, I wouldn't have any problem with adding something to them, perhaps some higher level stone spirits (up to banite sounds fair to me), but their current drops are fine as is.

The only change I want to see is the opening speed of them increased to Prawn Ball level. I have over five thousand of each (excluding the obvious, Metamorphic) and opening them just isn't worth my time at the moment.

Have you actually tried to sell/buy them lately or do you just base it on their GE value?

It might help if the stuff inside was noted, so spam clicking is viable.

If only, that or an opening speed increase would be most welcomed.


I guess auto-opening works the same way as for nests or prawn balls - it is supposed to be a tad bit slower since they want to reward 'activity'. I mean it's still viable if you go afk while opening them that way.

Prawn Ball auto-opening speed is very fast and would be fine if applied to Geodes. Though it might not even be fast enough, as gems don't stack, but it would definitely be better than the current situation.

overall rikornak's idea of having them come noted would certainly be better as the trick with the prawn balls where you set a bunch of your action bar slots to opening them and spamming them still works with geodes, this results in being able to open them in no time

No support for removing the lower gemstones from igneous.
I don't want to be forced to mine lv1-50 rocks just to get my red topaz's and whatnot.
