You can obtain this quest from Kebsis in Temple of Veeshan. He can be found right at the zone in.

You say, 'Hail, Kebsis'

Kebsis seems confused but excited to see you, 'Adventurer! I was not expecting your kind here so soon! I was just able to sneak into here just as the dracholiches outside started appearing and haven't been able to leave since. Well, not that I can leave at this moment. I came here because I, well, this is going to be hard to explain but...' Kebsis takes a moment to consider his words, '[Something] is here that shouldn't be.

You say, 'Something'

Kebsis says, 'I can't explain it, I too consider myself a bit of an adventurer myself, in that I get lost in places I shouldn't, but since nobody has stopped me yet, I think I'm doing well. Back to the matter at hand, after roaming the Western Wastes and befriending the Oresco Hunters, I was introduced to a dragon that was stranded outside the temple, expressing concerns. So, I figured I would try my luck and see what I can find. What I found, was not only [surprising] but also very sinister.'

You say, 'surprising'

Kebsis says, 'Yes, you see, in my travels, I've been hunting a sort of nefarious spirit. I can't quite explain what it is, but it has something to do with this [gem] I found in the Siren's Grotto. It appears that one of the sirens may have stumbled upon the very thing I need to track this spirit. This gem seemed to align itself with this spirit as every time I get close to it, the gem glows, and then it slips through my fingers.'

You say, 'gem'

Kebsis says, 'The longer I hold onto this gem, the more it calls out to me, as if it is telling whomever I'm trying to find exactly where it am. I am not about to let this spirit slip through my fingers again, so I have come up with a plan. Help me utilize this gem to its fullest [potential] and maybe we can be done with this monster once and for all.'

You say, 'potential'

Kebsis says, 'I suggest that instead of going and trying to capture this spirit myself, you help me with this endeavor, and together we can rid the world of this being. So how about that? Want to help me probably kill a dark [god]?'

You say, 'god'

You have been assigned the task 'Should have been a Gemologist'.

Kebsis says, 'Excellent! I thought you had demon slaying on that already impressive resume of yours! Ok, the first thing I noticed was that whenever one of the fae drakes comes close to me, the gem gets warmer. Perhaps the key to unlocking this tool is within the fae drakes? Let's kill a few and see what happens. What's the worst that could happen?'

Task Window Text: Kebsis has discovered some terrible energies emanating from within the Temple for the Mother of all Wurms. He needs your help to track it down and possibly destroy whatever is causing it.

  • 1. Kill Fae Drakes 0/8 The Temple of Veeshan

    Task Window Text: Kebsis has a gem that can gather the strange energy in the Temple, kill fae drakes so he can further examine what happens with the gem.

    This step updates upon killing shimmering drakes.

  • 2. Return to Kebsis and see what happened to the gem 0/1 The Temple of Veeshan

    Task Window Text: Deliver the gem to Kebsis, he is waiting for you near the entrance of the temple.

    You have been given: Kebsis' Gem of Terror

    Kebsis is bursting with excitement as you approach, 'I can tell that you return to me victorious, look at the gem now!' Kebsis shows the gem in his hand, it's glowing bright and vibrant, "You sure have done something now _____! Perhaps this information would be more useful to Siremth in the Western Wastes? Bring this to her and see if she can glean anything out of this revelation. Oh and, if you could, omit the part about you killing her brethren, that would be in our best interest.'

  • 3. Give the gem to Siremth 0/1 Western Wastes

    Task Window Text: Bring the gem to Siremth in the Western Wastes and seek her wisdom.

    You have been given: Kebsis' Gem of Terror

    Siremth straightens herself as you approach, "Hello mortal, from what I can surmise, you are working with Kebsis. That must mean he successfully got inside, as did you! So you say that this is what happened when the gem was around fae dragons? I can't say for certain what this gem is for, but I can advise you that this has nothing to do with the current plight of Velious. Return to Kebsis and let them know this information. Hopefully this will help him with whatever he is hunting.'

  • 4. Bring the gem back to Kebsis 0/1 The Temple of Veeshan

    Task Window Text: Return the gem to Kebsis, they will be able to determine what to do next.

    Kebsis looks more determined as ever and eager to hear what you learned. 'So Siremth also thinks this has nothing to do with the ice! Ha! I knew it! I'm better at this than I thought! Okay, so the next step, let's see,' Kebsis pulls out a leaflet and marks a few things on it, 'Ok, according to my calculations...' Kebsis pauses for a long moment before giving another response, 'this is bad.' Kebsis puts the leaflet away. 'Okay, now it appears to have something to do with the devotees here. They may be trying to summon some dark lord, which may explain why they are so pious. Perhaps giving them the same treatment as you did with the fae drakes is in order?'

  • 5. Kill pious devotees 0/6 The Temple of Veeshan

    Task Window Text: Slay the pious devotees, they are a part of this plot.

  • 6. Check back in with Kebsis 0/1 The Temple of Veeshan

    Task Window Text: Return to Kebsis.

    You have been given: Kebsis' Gem of Terror

    Kebsis looks terrified and is having a hard time speaking as you approach. 'Adventurer! You. You. You...' Kebsis takes a moment to recollect themselves, 'Won't believe this! With every devotee killed, this gem started vibrating and humming, I think it's fully charged with,' Kebsis looks in abject horror at the gem, 'We got it! We captured whatever it is! Quick! Do something heroic! That's what you do! Throw it in the lava pit! Head into the northern section of the Temple where the cavern of lava is and throw it over the ledge! Hurry!'

  • 7. Throw the gem over the ledge into the lavapit 0/1 The Temple of Veeshan

    Go to the ledge in the north part around +338, +761.21.

    Your task 'Should have been a Gemologist' has been updated.

    You lose track of the gem as it falls into the cavern below. You don't even get to hear the satisfying "plink" it would have made if you were closer. Here's to hoping that whatever that was, it is gone for good. You are reminded that Kebsis seems easily excitable. Perhaps a gem, was just a gem.
