Gem collecting

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

This Adventurer's Guild task requires you to obtain a number of a specific gem (usually between five and ten) and sell them to the town's jeweler. Assignments appear to be somewhat based upon your character's level. For example, a level 2 character would be asked to find something on the order of '6 pink spinels,' though as early as 15 trains one can be assigned to look for rarities such as Sylvarraend rubies. Rewards are based on specific gem type and quantity.

Step-by-Step

What follows are clips taken from GemStone IV which illustrate each step of this particular task.

Step One: Getting the Task

>ask rheteger about bounty

Rheteger says, "Hmm, I've got a task here from the town of Wehnimer's Landing. The local gem dealer, Murdos Burdos, has an order to fill and wants our help. Head over there and see what you can do. Be sure to ASK about BOUNTIES."

Step Two: Get Details from the Jeweler

>ask dealer about bounty

The dealer says, "Ah, so you're from the Adventurer's Guild? Yes, I do have a task for you. I've recently received several orders from customers interested in purchasing a yellow zircon. Unfortunately, I do not have quite enough inventory on hand to meet this demand. I'd like for you to go round up 8 of them for me. You can SELL them to me as you find them."

Step Three: Collect the Gems

You may obtain the gems any way you see fit, such as searching the corpses of dead critters, or even from other adventurers.

Step Four: Sell the Gems

>sell zircon
The gem dealer takes the yellow zircon, gives it a careful examination and hands you 89 silver for it.

[You need to sell 1 more to complete your task.]
>sell zircon

He says, "This completes my last order. Thanks, Aconitum. You may return to the Adventurer's Guild to pickup your full reward."

Step Five: Reap the Rewards

>ask rheteger about bounty
Rheteger says, "All done with that assignment? Good job, Aconitum!"

[You have earned 450 bounty points, 1000 experience points, and 200 silver.]
