- Semi-randomly placed quest items (mandatory: 10 gems)
Tips and Misc
- Flame resist is useful.
- Break the storage bins in hopes of finding the required gems and ingots. Each type of gem (and the ingots) are grouped in a different area. Additional ingots (in lots of 5) and gems can be sold for a few hundred platinum after the quest.
- Iron ingots are in the western area
- Rubies are in the eastern area
- Opals are in the small southeast area
- Jacinths are in the southern area.
- These uncut gems do not fit in any gem bag, so do take up inventory space (but can be safely discarded without threatening quest success). After the quest, you can turn in any uncut gems to Behn the Prospector, who gives you normal sellable gems (worth a few hundred plat each). You can also sell the iron ingots, in lots of 5, for 300 plat/5.
