Prifddinas gem rocks are rocks containing gems, found within the Trahaern district in Prifddinas. They can be mined by players with a Mining level of 75 or higher.

The gem rocks in Prifddinas previously gave a chance to receive an uncut onyx when mined. However, a hotfix update on 11 March 2019 removed onyxes from the rock's drop table due to the large number of onyxes entering the game via these rocks.[1] As a result of this change, Rare gem rocks give more experience and money despite having slightly higher durability and requiring a lower mining level.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Prior to the Mining and Smithing rework, Trahaearn gem rocks existed as generic gem rocks.
  • Prior to the rework, these gem rocks also gave spirit gems.
  • Out of the 5 types of gem rocks that may yield uncut emeralds, this is the only type that has emeralds visibly encrusted on the surface.

"Today, we released a hotfix to remove the ability to mine Uncut Onyxes from Gem Rocks. The reason for this that the amount of Onyxes in-game has increased by almost double since the Mining and Smithing rework and that it was an unsustainable amount of Onyxes being produced from Mining."
