Its been literally hours. The level 0 kappa gem of the winter mine. I load outside the mine, I enter, break all the rocks. Nothing. Any tips? Anything I might be doing wrong?

Save on the floor before the one that it will appear on, it's been a while I don't remember which ones specifically.

Aka if it appears on floor 21, save on floor 20 before using the stairs. That way it will re-randomize the next floor when you reload. If you save on the same floor it won't change anything on the floor you're on.

This is a trick to save Stamina as well, the 2-save method.

1- Save1 on the previous floor.
2- Use stairs.
2a - Alternatively to save energy, if you're surrounded with rocks, just reload Save1 until you get into an area that is open enough, sometimes you won't need to break any rocks to find the stairs.
3- Save2 on the current floor
4- Dig/break stone until you find what you want (stairs, gems, cursed tools...)
5a - If you don't find what you want, reload Save1 and start over from step 2
5b- If you find what you want, reload Save2 and ONLY dig/break what you need to minimize stamina loss.
6- Make a new Save1 after finding the stairs, and start over the steps.

This is time consuming mind you, but minimizes what energy loss you incur greatly, you only would dig/break rocks 2-3 times per floor at most if lucky. If you don't mind wasting a bit more time, dig for Black Herbs to restore a little bit of stamina too (2-3 hits worth, basically more than digging them up at least), they also won't change position after you reload Save2.

Remember that stairs never appear along the wall, and never within the 8 squares of the starting stairs. So you never need to dig those for stairs.

Have you bought the shelves from the TV yet? No jewels will appear until you buy it. Other than that it's just stupid rare.
