These are four NPC crystals that are part of the Gateway to the Deep quest. They are located at 87.6S 4.4W on a a small mountain ledge on the South Direlands Landbridge. The only way to initially access them is through a portal at the end of either the Devastated Falatacot Temple or the Corrupted Falatacot Temple, both on Aerlinthe. If you speak to Shemza before handing the Yellow Jewel you'll be flagged to use the the Gatekeepers Portal just west of Ayan Baqur at 60.3S 90.7W that takes you directly to the Gatekeepers (useful for returning once a week to loot the Black Marrow Reliquary chests).
Note: Some people handed in the Yellow Jewel before talking to Shemza and aren't flagged to use the Ayan portal. A few people have had an +Envoy fix it for them, but others have been told they can't be helped. One way around this is to tie to the surface portal in any of the crystal dungeons, alternatively you can keep one of the Shards and show it to either of the Aerlinthe statues and it will also send you straight to the Gatekeepers like the Ayan portal does. The shard is not used up in the process so you can use it again to return the next time.
- You allow Devastated Watcher to examine your Radiant Shard.
- The light of the shard bathes the Watcher statue in light. You here a whisper in your mind, "You must bring this to the Gatekeepers... I will send you to them..."
Lore & Dialog
Shemza tells you, "A warrior! A warrior comes! Brothers, feast your eyes on one who would give their lives willingly to the great lord!"
Shemza tells you, "You seek to bask in the glory of Grael, do you not? You seek to join us in the worship of he who is more powerful, more glorious, than all who have come before? My brothers and I, we were the first to join his side. We were there when he led us to victory over the old ones. We helped him slay the mages and lay waste to their cities. We were there when he led an army upon the heretics of the light."
Shemza tells you, "When defeat fell upon us, we knew that our ascendance was only delayed. One day, we knew that our god would rise from the depths and claim that which is his. And we knew that ones such as you would seek to free him from his chains."
Shemza tells you, "And now you are here. You seek to barter with us who have given our souls in exchange for life eternal. Those of us who have lengthened our lives for the sole purpose of delivering warriors unto him."
Shemza tells you, "Yes. You are here now. And now you will aid me. And then you will aid my brothers."
Shemza tells you, "I seek a boon. One small boon. The masters of the portal carry a token of golden hue. A token that I would claim as mine own. Find it and deliver it to me. Then the first part of your quest shall begin."
Shemza tells you, "I have altered your body. You may now use our portal near Ayan Baqur."
You give Shemza Yellow Jewel.
Shemza tells you, "Seek out the Radiant Crystal. Bring a shard to my brother Lurza. Then he will treat with you."
Lore & Dialog
Lurza tells you, "You must bring to me a shard of the Radiant Crystal. Only when Shemza sings your name to the lord of the deep will you gain access to that Crystal."
You give Lurza Radiant Shard.
Lurza tells you, "Long have we waited, trapped within these crystalline forms, waiting for those who would join him in his quest. And now you come. You come seeking our approval. But are you worthy?"
Lurza tells you, "There is something I seek. The key to one who once followed our cause. A traitor who makes his home among the winged demons of the dark. Bring the key to this fallen lord, and I will grant you passage."
You give Lurza Sezzherei's Lair.
Lurza tells you, "The demon Sezzherei once called himself our brother. But when he betrayed our lord to the ancient mages, he fell from Grael's favor. Our brother Tursh slew Sezzherei on the battlefield, or so we all believed. Now he claims the dark as his master, and seeks to appease its twisted whims."
Lurza tells you, "Sezzherei will once again know the taste of his own blood. When Grael rises and marches across this land, Sezzherei will kneel once again."
Lurza tells you, "Now find the Dazzling shard, and give it to my brother Dmesne."
Lore & Dialog
Dmesne tells you, "I require a shard of the Dazzling Crystal. Until you have acquired one of these from my brother Lurza, I will have naught to do with you, little one."
You give Dmesne Dazzling Shard.
Dmesne tells you, "There is a metal, a pure metal of great power. You use it to strengthen your arms, barbarians that you are. One bar is all I ask. One bar and you shall have my blessing."
You give Dmesne Pyreal Bar.
Dmesne tells you, "Within this chamber lies the Brilliant Crystal. Take a shard to my brother Rhujun, and you will be escorted to the isle of water."
Lore & Dialog
Rhujun tells you, "A shard of the Brilliant Crystal is all I require. Until I have it, you are not fit."
You give Rhujun Brilliant Shard.
Rhujun tells you, "There are those of wet skin and barbaric means. They carry the meanest of stones, a stone whose power is unknown even to them. I would have it, little one."
Rhujun tells you, "I would have it now."
You give Rhujun Swamp Stone.
Rhujun tells you, "The cousins of these young ones make their homes on the bones of the ancients. They know not the power that surrounds them. Such simple creatures they are."
