Is there a way of selling your Bloodstone Gem other than selling it back and only getting 50k?

I bought mine for 500k/800k (can't remember as it was a while back) and I honestly don't think it is fair that it is still soulbound yet doesn't have any use.
No other way.
Just going to have to deal with it.
You aren't the first to complain either.

You paid for your entry to DMS before it was permanently opened.

That's what happens when developers poorly plan a heads-up notice.
They just said that DMS is bound to open publicly forever if enough is enough done.
They did try to offer some consolation by having a thread for reimbursement for those that suddenly purchased one about two months before DMS opened but that remedy is only temporary.

Two weeks, actually.
Oh well. Nothing you can do.
Better to get something than nothing at all.

At least the Amulet had aesthetic purposes unlike the Gem.

Exactly. If I had the amulet I would have kept it regardless.
You can't please any zOMGer anyway.

I am a happy zOMGer.

It is just frustrating that certain items are soulbound when they clearly shouldn't be anymore.

If both the amulet and gem were soulbound, it wouldn't matter so much.

Even if it were unsoulbound, what makes you think anyone would want to buy it from you for more than 50k when it's just useless anyway?
And a lot of the amulets are soulbound, too

The bloodstone gem- when you entered DMS, it soulbound because the gem was a ticket into DMS.
Like a concert, once you enter the gates you cannot return that ticket.
The amulet is wearable+ a ticket into DMS.
Now that you paid for your entrance into DMS its next to worthless. The amulet is not worthless because hey, you can put it on your avatar and it'll look cool.

I suppose so.

It just seems unfair, in all honesty.

If I had known that they were going to fully open it up at some point, I would have waited.

Yes, the announcement was pathetic. Everyone was pissed.
But there's nothing we can do except suck it up and get over it.
