Cannot find diamond at a fast rate

Hello,
I am doing the Master Artisan Quest. I have all the ghost fire I need, and there are a lot of Black Lotuses in WT and MS, but I am having a hard time finding diamonds. I need 30-40 diamonds for this quest and I can only get them when a piece of Ore yields one. I have only found 9 diamonds so far. I have heard that a frozen fly trap drops them, and I will plant a lot of those, but does anyone know how you can get diamonds more quickly?

The recipe vendor who gave you the quest (balthazar i think his name is) should sell a transmute diamond recipe- buy it and you can convert ore into diamonds (15 ore to make 1 diamond). You'll need the card crafting table to do this and, in the future, you'll need to do a lot of transmuting anyway, so you may as well start now. -elijah darkthorn, corwin sandstalker- grandmaster artisans

Transmute Diamonds from Ore.
You can buy the recipe from Felicia in MB I believe; Also you can get it from the crafting recipe vendor in the Floating land.

Buy Ore and/or Diamonds at the bazaar.
Farm ore in Dragonspyre, or in the Pyramid in KT. Ore is pretty common in most parts of the spiral.

You can't get diamonds quickly by hoping for ore drops, I found. I am at the end of my Master Artisan quest, and just finished the diamond part (apotheosis daggers). Anyway, I don't think there's a fast way. I had to get a transmute card and make diamonds out of ore. 15 ore= 1 diamond. About every tenth ore you'll get a lucky diamond, and you can get them from gardening (silver trumpet vines, fly traps, and King Parsley will drop them if I remember correctly), but basically I had to run around DS for a week or so collecting ore. There's a lot of it there. Also the area before you enter Nordrilund in WT has one or two ore which seem to have a slightly better diamond-drop rate. Good luck. I'm now madly gathering mushrooms to make Nightshade :( for my second (and final) Crimson Book Stand.

You can get a recipe that will transmute 15 ore to 1 diamond from Felicia Worthington in MB and from one of the vendors in Celestia Base Camp (sorry don't know name).

Well Diamonds at the Bazaar cost an insane amount and is very rare. You should buy a Transmute Diamond recipe from the guy you received the quest from, and then you can transmute 15 Ore to one Diamond. They can also be rare drops or an rare extra harvest from other reagents.

You can get the buy the recipe to craft reagents from the crafting trainers, you have to page over to reagents, i believe marleybone has the diamond recipe

A thousand gold? That's not an insane amount.

Ore is often picked over at the bazaar, as well as diamonds.

Buy tons of ore and transmute it. You need 15 ore for one diamond, good luck. -Jasmine Fireblade lvl 66 fire
