Post updated.

Well, after reading your post, I can see how people may be spoiled with some of this info, so, we could go on votes or just have one of the mod-dudes here delete this thread altogether. I just get sick of people asking the same threads, over and over again. I say PUNISHEMENT is in ORDER.

This is not suppose to be something that we give a road map to... but something that the player has to figure out through play.  This is especially true if we have EE's in the information thread.  No.. lets not sticky this.

In my opinion,even if to stop the unneccesant yammering,the easter eggs should not be given away.
Just my two cents.

Dear Abby (or Saxondragon),

I find myself frustrated over my seemingly unending quest to obtain a second Qualis Gem (after spending the freebie gem on findng the mines) and so found the knighthood order of my choosing.  Having spent considerable time building up the leadership skills and reknown - (I must confess I cheated a wee bit due to impatience with the slow progress from the relatively small party one is stuck with for some time) - for a decent-sized party and even more in aquiring a sufficient number of experienced troops, I set out to tackle a unique hero spawn. 

After quickly realizing my humble band of 93 troops could not hope to take down 300+ Mystmountain Raiders or even 200+ of the much tougher Zatu horsemen, I set about attempting to lure one Zatu warlord (whose name escapes me) into Noldor lands hoping for some unwitting assistance from the formidible, if small, bands of Elves.  I wore out a string of horses and several sunsets trying to maneuver about to force a conflict between the Noldor and my Zatu prey, but finally succeeded.  I joined the fight at the expense of many casualties despite the assistance of around 85 Noldor - against some 235 Zatu including over 50 of the Grim Riders - and was victorious!  Only to have the squirmy warlord escape leaving me with only some valuable loot and no Qualis gem for my considerable time and effort.

You can imagine my disappointment and frustration.

Sincerly,
Frustrated in Pendor

It was never suppose to be easy.  The idea was to make it really hard to find these gems... and the reward is great once you do.

Many folks import characters, with lots of gold.  Some of the forum posts (but not all) from folks  make it seem easy to find, defeat, capture then gain one of these gems.  With beefed up characters, the ability to quickly level up troops, yes it can be streamlined and made easier.

But I gather from your post, that you are playing the way the game was intended.  And that means, that this process is long and difficult.  The gems are used to do some amazing things.  It is designed for you, once earned, to make some very hard choices. 

Hang in there.. it will be fine.

Best,

saxondragon

Getting gems is simple (opposite of complex), not easy (opposite of challenging).

And enormously frustrating at times when the RNG doesn't love you. :(

Uniques roll to escape from you using the same routine as regular lords.  In PoP this is set at 60% escape / 40% capture IIRC.  I confess I have two files in my PoP folder, 40% scripts.txt and 100% scripts.txt, which take turns being saved as scripts.txt depending on if I'm fighting a gem-giving spawn or not.  Cheating, yes.  But monitor and fist saving.

first post should be edited since the "salt trick" no longer gives a gem, though there is rumor of another EE that gives a gem
