Well guess I always have bad luck when using pandemonium tokens because I had cases where level 10 gems ended up as level 4.
But hey, one page of imbued orbs and 10 demon dust make up for it. I guess we can not be lucky all the time :D

Man, I must really just have crazy bad luck. Lol

Actually, there's about a 66% chance your gems will gain a level and a 33% chance you'll lose a level.

"But Zack, surely the numbers are switched - it's bugged!" you say.

Nope, just double-checked.

Nah, I bet Zack's about to tell us it's 50/50.

When I was first experimenting with tokens, I got "all your gems go up a level" 5 or 6 times before I ever got "all your gems lose a level". So I had thought it was a lot safer than it was. Whoops.

Yeah, the ratios for tokens giving gem levels vs loading them is probably gain 1 per 3 lost.

Yeah, I considered that. I actually started out as a Chaos Mage, and before I switched class I sunk a bunch of royalty points in empowering panda tokens, and used up a stack of 230.

I've spent the last 5 hours of gameplay trying to get all of my gems back up from level 3.

Creidieki, I have a slightly clever way to fix that, but it's hard to guarantee. Pandemonium tokens have a chance to plate the realm wroth more enemies... ;)
Good luck!

That's intentional for the reason that you mentioned :) It would be way too easy to absolutely obliterate every sigil in your inventory using this ability otherwise.

Intimidation doesn't seem to count sigil battles you've had in the current realm. (Which was the entire reason I'd enchanted that artifact :P   I figured I'd go to a realm higher than I could normally manage, use up spells and consumables to get through the first 5-10 battles, then collect better treasure than I usually can.)

Just to make sure I'm clear: after beating 7 normal fights in this Realm, I had a 70% Intimidate bonus. After several sigil fights, I....still had a 70% Intimidate bonus.
