Gemstone golem fragments

Gemstone golem fragments may be obtained from level 70 Mining onward. 90 to 110 fragments are received at 5-minute intervals when mining, with a 1/2,500 chance[1] of receiving an additional 3,600 fragments when one is gained. The cooldown is shared with the other skilling outfit fragments. At higher levels the amount of fragments is increased:

  • At level 99, 2x the fragments drop.
  • At level 120, 3x the fragments drop.
  • At 200 million experience, 4x the fragments drop.

When the ability to gain the fragments is obtained, the following message is seen: You will now start to gather gemstone golem fragments in your currency pouch which can be used to make pieces of the gemstone golem outfits.

When gaining fragments, the following message is seen (unless game is filtered): You have earned [NUMBER] gemstone golem fragments. They have been added to your currency pouch.

When you have gained 54,000 fragments, enough to create all three gemstone golem outfits, no more fragments will be obtained and the following message will be displayed instead: You have gained all of the gemstone golem fragments you need to make all of the outfit pieces.

They may be combined at an inventor's workbench to create pieces from the ruby, sapphire, and emerald golem outfits. (If the craft option isn't showing up immediately after discovering the blueprint, try logging out then back in).

3,600 fragments are required to create each outfit piece; so 18,000 are needed to make one full outfit and 54,000 are required to make all three outfits, with no additional cost to combine the three outfits to make the magic golem outfit. The fragments will be collected in the currency pouch and can be assembled into outfit pieces once the player has researched the Invention blueprints, which will require level 20 Invention and 80 Mining. The outfit pieces created will be random, but players will not receive duplicate pieces. Once the magic golem set has been made, all remaining fragments will be destroyed and no more will be obtained.

Gadrin (dwarf with the Mining cape) at the entrance to the Mining Guild can be talked with to check the current state of receiving the fragments. However, there is currently a glitch where talking to Gadrin may prevent some players from continuing to collect fragments for the current game session.

The maximum time to obtain the fragments necessary for all three golem sets would be exactly 50 hours. This assumes the lowest fragments per five minutes (90) with no occurrences of the 3,600 bonus.
