Arghhhhh! I can’t get the Anjaneth Gem from a tail carve to come nolete my high rank anya set. Must be 10 fights and it just won’t drop it.

I must have gotten really lucky because I have like 5 gems from every monster. It's like I get at least one every time I hunt.

Try using the palico plunderblade. It'll help your chances.
Breaking the tail and carving only helps your chances, still no guarantee.

It's also possible that MHW had some kind of digital starter pack, or bundle with console or something.
650k is pretty high, but I'm sure there was some kind of deal that helped it out.

No Deal, full price. Retail version was simply sold-out in most places..

Across the country they sold 95% of the available games, which is a lot. People simply had to buy the game digital in order to play it.

FINALLY, FINALLY I got the Anjaneth gem after over 30 hunts. The ironic thing is, I never got it from carving its tail I got it for an award for completing the quest which in the monster hunter field guide for the Anjaneth it says you only get it from carving its tail.

I hope you were always doing Anjaneth HR investigations, rather than just hunting him normally. Much higher drop rates with investigations than through carve. You could also have bought it with one the weekly rewards at the melder.

Yeah I was doing the HR, I can’t believe how long it took lol, one thing Ian for sure I’m an absolutely master at beating Anjaneth now. I’m just  forward to moving on now and really hope I’m more lucky when it comes to the Gems off other monsters.

Dude going by my experience you got mega lucky if you have that many. Because when I say it took over 30 fights I’m not even exaggerating, and with each fight averaging 15-20mins, that’s hours just to get ONE gem.
