Ebon Gate auto flarer

The official GemStone IV encyclopedia.
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Debuting at Caligos Isle for Ebon Gate Festival in 2018, the auto flarer provided adventurers the opportunity to add flares to their weapons or armor if they had an eligible token that was found through the various activities. Pricing for the services was exclusively through seashells and the service was performed at Flares of Interest.

In 2022, the Ebon Gate Festival moved to Evermore Hollow, and from here, the majority of the tokens available were able to be purchased off the shelf at Quinton Manse for a low fee, and then applied for a set fee with a wild blue-haired fuath. Pricing for application is a similar structure to what had been offered in Duskruin HESS in prior years.

Evermore Hollow

You see Marello.
He appears to be a Fuath.
Wild, blue hair strewn with bits of sand and debris creates a scene of chaos around a wild blue-haired fuath's face, lending to the overall state of disarray for this formidable subject.  Mud-caked and covered in seaweed, his apron obviously hasn't seen clean water in quite some time, and given the condition of his skin, neither has he.  Leathery webbing separates his phalanges, but his hands are merely crustacean-like claws that click and clack incessantly.  His glowing emerald eyes appear to be void of discernable pupils.

>ask half-krolvin about cost
A blue-haired tall and burly half-krolvin says, "My charges are fair and reasonable!  I work only in seashells and don't accept bank notes or unredeemed currency.  I'll let you know how much the SERVICE will run ya.  You can also ASK me about an ESTIMATE.  If you have a token, you can SHOW that to me while holding a piece of equipment in your left hand.  Or, if you just want to get an idea about a cost in case you get lucky and get your hot little hands on a token, you can ASK me about <flare type> while holding an item in your right hand.  For instance, ASK me about FIRE with a weapon in your right hand."
>ask half-krolvin about estimate
A blue-haired tall and burly half-krolvin asks, "You want an estimate?  Just ASK me about a flare type while holding an appropriate item in your right hand.  You could ASK me about DISRUPTION, or ASK me about LIGHTNING.  You could even ASK me about BRIAR."  Marello nods slowly.  "Just remember that these are estimates.  I could easily overlook something until you bring me an actual flare token.  You can find those if you dare to play the various games scattered about the island.  Diving and fishing can also yield tokens.  Get crackin'!"
>ask half-krolvin about exclusions
A blue-haired tall and burly half-krolvin says, "All good things have a limit, don't they?  I'm no exception.  I can't work on anything that is more than heavily crit weighted or padded.  I can't add flares to an item that already has special flares, like rotflares or knockout flares.  I can't add a special flare to an item that already has a normal flare, like heat or cold or lightning.  Most flares will not be compatible with runestaves, and all bows are incompatible.  Those are things I remember right off-hand, and there may be more, but for now, that should give you an idea what I can and can't work with."
>ask half-krolvin about flares
A blue-haired tall and burly half-krolvin runs his hands over some small vials attached to his belt.  He says, "Powerful dust in these vials.  Gotta be careful who gets a hold of 'em.  Trained under the finest smiths and wizards in all of Elanthia to master this skill, I did.  Now I can share it with you.  I know about many different flare types -- just ask me about a specific flare while holding an appropriate item in your right hand, and we will go from there."
>ask half-krolvin about service
"It's quite simple, really," says a blue-haired tall and burly half-krolvin.  "You bring me a token and an item, SHOW me the TOKEN while holding the armor or weapon in your left hand, and I'll tell you how much it'll COST you for my service.  Or, you can ask me for an ESTIMATE.  Piece o' cake, right?"
