Deletion[edit]

Rubies can be dropped by any monster. So, I think this category is not needed, or that it should include every single monster in the game. --JonTheMon 16:56, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

I agree that its not needed, otherwise it will just be a list of monsters which is quite pointless. Presumably this also goes for the Drops Sapphire and Drops Diamond categories.- TheRave User TheRave sig.jpg 17:30, 18 September 2008 (UTC)
I've slapped a "delete" template on here. If we decide it's not needed, feel free to remove the template.69.249.223.63 00:37, 5 September 2009 (UTC)
Can you guys confirm that they indeed drop from "anything"? Having solo-farmed quite a lot grawls on the Southern Shiverpeaks in hard mode, i have never seen a ruby or sapphire coming from them. On the other hand, having farmed a lot less stone elementals in Ascalon, i have gotten several gems already. My luck with drops usually fails, but i still find it hard to say that they drop from "anything" when on my experience this hasn't proven to be true.--Fighterdoken 22:11, 7 September 2009 (UTC)
Well if i remember correctly only sapphires can be dropped by anything, although i suppose i could be wrong C4K3 User C4K3 Signature.jpg Talk 11:39, 8 September 2009 (UTC)
Ask one of the Devs. if they can enlighten us. ~ PheNaxKian User PheNaxKian sig.jpg 11:55, 8 September 2009
If you feel consensus has been reached in this, remove all the category tags from the pages included here. It will not be deleted while there are pages in it. -- Wyn User Wynthyst sig icon2.png talk 19:53, 8 September 2009 (UTC)
I'd rather this category not get deleted until either a developer confirms that rubies drop from everything or we have enough drop research to confirm the claim. Same for sapphires. Tedium 20:37, 8 September 2009 (UTC)
They can't be dropped by just any monster. They can't even be dropped by any monster that can drop a material. While there are plenty of mobs in all areas of the game that can drop them it doesn't mean that all of them can. If you need 1 solid reason why these sections should stay look at the one example: Wardens in Echovald Forest drop Sapphires occassionally but don't drop Rubies. They just don't, pro farmers know something about it. Also, isn't it surprising that whenever this topic is up for discussion, players bring the same sources over and over (like Imps or elementals or anything in FoW/UW) but many heavily farmed monsters were never reported to have dropped even one? Ever heard of a Ruby dropping from a Charr or a Desert Griffon? Or maybe a Raptor Nestling? Nope, because they don't drop them.--YawgYawg 00:33, 11 September 2009 (UTC)
Are you a dev? Oh, okay. Thanks for your input, but I'd rather like to hear it from someone who can actually confirm/deny the issue instead of someone who just spreads rumors by word of mouth. Unless you linked detailed drop logs including screenshots of drops as proof, I could care less what your take on the matter is. We're at a point where we want a dev to tell us the deal, which honestly should have been done with drop rates for every item from the beginning, but ANet is lazy as fuck so we just have to ask question by question and hope they get back to us within a year. -Auron 00:56, 12 September 2009 (UTC)

Skeleton of dhuum drops a ruby confirmed

I've farmed HM in Old Ascalon a lot in the past and most killed Stone Elementalists. I've had at least two Rubies drop during these farms. Someone else told me a while before then that they have also seen these rare drops. Definitely confirmed 68.0.65.248 02:52, 20 December 2010 (UTC)

Not all monsters drop rubies[edit]

Concerning whether all monsters drop rubies, Linsey stated: "I am told it is not any monster in the game. In fact, not most." --Silver Edge 08:08, 4 November 2009 (UTC)

Since it has been confirmed that not all monsters drop rubies, it can be safe to assume to be the same for sapphires. --Silver Edge 02:31, 5 November 2009 (UTC)
