Anyone know where this thing comes from?--Anmbia 09:50, 27 June 2007 (CDT)

  • Indeed. Please, do enlighten us at to the drop location of these items.--Zelandoni 20:29, 27 June 2007 (CDT)

You have to pulverize... something.--Unhuman 00:02, 28 June 2007 (CDT)

  • Umm... something? Care to say what? This is the wiki, for chrissakes, you're supposed to spoil things.--Thrower of stones 01:10, 28 June 2007 (CDT)

It's pulverized from something new that you get from the level 12 quest, that otherwise you could get a quarter each for.--Urizenxvii 09:30, 28 June 2007 (CDT)

That to me suggests that it's the different coloured beads that the Hippies drop if you're a Frat. But they're Quest items, and I ascended, so I can't test it. Flickgc 09:35, 28 June 2007 (CDT)
  • This is the Wiki. If you know what you get this item from, ADD IT. Don't just give us vague hints. Quest items cannot be smashed.--Zelandoni 11:53, 28 June 2007 (CDT)
Hmm. The coloured bead necklaces, then, maybe? Don't think they're quest items. But yeah, someone just add it already! Flickgc 11:58, 28 June 2007 (CDT)

Sorry, I have no clue either.--Unhuman 01:39, 28 June 2007 (CDT)

  • If you've been watching /trade, it's like some kind of giant conspiracy... I can only guess that they are afraid of not being able to sell the rings for millions if it gets onto the Wiki. A few were even offering to sell the information for around a million Meat. Meanwhile, I'm going to keep trying things.--Zelandoni 01:50, 28 June 2007 (CDT)

ok, ok, I got it from smashing the headbands. I don't know how to do the stats, though, sorry...--Urizenxvii 19:38, 28 June 2007 (CDT) *edit* whoops, I mean purple sunglasses... /headdesk...--Urizenxvii 13:17, 29 June 2007 (CDT)

I've heard reports of getting a steamy ruby through smashing a toy ray gun.--Unhuman 19:58, 28 June 2007 (CDT)

You get it by pulverizing 16 fire poi. Thank you Starwed for this information.

spoiler

You know I really hate the traders who profit off this stuff so here's what I've learned to get the gems. Smashing 100+ of an item which yields a lot of elemental nuggets/wads gets you the gems. For the sapphire I smashed 100+ toy space helmets and got that along with the a amethyst. The amethyst I got from smashing 100+ furry pants. I got the stench damage gem from smashing 100+ glowing red eyes.

  • So then, we can assume that each gem has a small chance to drop when smashing an item that gives the either the same type or the opposite type of elemental wad.--Zelandoni 17:22, 1 July 2007 (CDT)


Well, after smashing 100+ toy space helmets, I can not confirm that it drops. Nor smashing 100 furry pants, nor 400 glowing red eye. I only have the pulverize ability right now, not a Seal clubber. Maybe it happens with just the Malus? JoltCola 19:36, 1 July 2007 (CDT)

I got 2 steamy rubies from smashing 100+ glowing red eyes, without having the Malus.

Tried it using the round purple sunglasses (7) that the Unearthly onyx is supposed to come from, and first time I tried it I was having the pulverize greasemonkey script going. I am guessing it was nerfing the ability, as I tried it again without the greasemonkey script and it worked. I can confirm that at least the 7 purple sunglasses gives me a glacial Sapphire. It will be in my DC in a few. Hint, remember to turn off any greasemonkey scripts that play with pulverize :P 2 Mil meat in testing down the drain. JoltCola 19:48, 1 July 2007 (CDT)

I seriously doubt it was the greasemonkey script screwing with you; they just don't drop that often. --Starwed 20:26, 1 July 2007 (CDT)

I got mine after pulverizing about 20 round purple sunglasses. My guess is that it's a 1% or so chance upon pulverizing an item that gives at least one wad?--Pieces 02:34, 2 July 2007 (CDT)

It might be there's a 1% chance of any given wad being a gem. --Starwed 10:08, 3 July 2007 (CDT)

Pulverising results

Raw data might come in handy as to ascertaining the actual chances.

After smashing 53 pairs of distressed denim pants, I got 35 clusters of twinkly nuggets, 21 clusters of cold nuggets, 25 clusters of sleaze nuggets, 23 twinkly wads, 30 cold wads, 24 sleaze wads, a glacial sapphire, and a tawdry amethyst.
