Why does mostly everyone I met have the same Gem as the preferred being Tourmaline?

Don't know the full details yet but is Veteran dungeon the ONLY way to get that gem?

Dare I say that this spirit revamp is already rigged on arrival?

Is everyone else's spirit weapon desire Tourmaline I need to know if this is just coincidence or am I just not giving Nexon enough credit when it was due...

    From what I read the gem is determined by the weapon type.

    The weapon that favorites Tourmaline are only Staff and Wand.

    For other weapons

    Sword - Heliodor
    Axe - Red Heliodor
    Blunt - Green Heliodor
    Lance -- Bloodstone
    Bow and Crossbow - Jade
    Cylinder - Pink Sapphire
    Knuckle - Jet
    Control Bars - Opal
    Dual Guns - Tanzanite
    Shuriken - Phantom Quartz
    Chainblade - Ametrine

    Which means we would have to be forced to do that vet dungeon huh?

    Unless we can get it anywhere just like the old gems?

    Tho the reason I need one of the new gems would be for the spirit weapon quest for a EP

    The new gems are also a possible reward for fragmenting Echostones.
    A guildmate got a 5cm Opal from fragmenting a Lv20 Echostone.

    Okay so favorite Gem is based on weapon type and NOT the avatar chosen to represent it then right?

    Yeah, it's based on the type of weapon the spirit is currently in, and not actually tied to the spirit itself.

    So if you, say, have a Female Bow Spirit currently in a Sword, she'll prefer Heliodor. But if you were the transfer her over to a Staff, she'd immediately start preferring a Tourmaline.
