View Full Version : Correct procedure for using scrying stones on rainbow rays

02-23-2007, 01:10 AM
<p>I'm having trouble understanding how to use the scrying stones / rainbow ray areas.</p><p>I have scrying stones (Jasper Scrying Stone / Opal Scrying Stone) and am trying to use them on the rainbow rays, but nothing is happening.  I click "examine" on the stones while standing on the rays and nothing happens (other than a description window of the stones themselves appearing).</p><p>What am I doing wrong?</p>

You are using the wrong scrying stones those are the ones you turn in to the mage guild for status points the ones you need you buy from merchant on the nek dock if your from freeport and a merchant on ts dock if your from quenos.

It's a bit fiddly... from memory, target the corpse, use your ray, then *right click* the corpse and select "grab river stone".

Buy scrying stones from the vendor in the TS docks and examine them while standing in the rainbows. The ones that drop are status items and won't work.

There is also an NPC somewhere around N'mars ascent that will give you 5 free scrying stones while she explains what the rainbow rays do. Great way to start out cause most of the time the drops from these spots are more scrying stones. On the same note.. anyone know if there's a list compiled yet of the drops from these? Other than the the 6 books that are always a choice that is. I have only gotten a pair of legendary lvl 40 armbands. The undead that spawn from them never seem to drop loot either. Just curious if its a certain set of items or just random loot.

I havn't really bothered with them since launch,I never really got anything usefull from them but I guess it's possible.

<p>I just finished this quest last night.</p><p>You can get the scrying stones off the guy behind a building at nektelus docks. Also check the market I put some up there last night cheap. The guy sells them for 10s a pop. Make sure you take plenty with you, at least a dozen or so.</p><p>Place the "stack" of stones in a hotkey button. Stand inside the lights and click the hotkey. It will "pulse three times" (reminiscent of crafting except no counters) with some (literally) color text eventually some random event will happen.</p><p>A good place to find some "lights" is in Nektulos Way up in the NW corner around Soul Eater Falls. There is a camp there and the lights pop up in random locations around the camp.</p><p>You generally get two or three tries before the lights move again and they (the lights) may take a few moments to re-spawn.</p><p>Word of warning (depending on your level) but some of the random events is to spawn a L25^^ heroic skeleton. Caught me by supprise the first time and had to skiddadle. </p>
