Quest Info

This quest is triggered when you find the Ancient Tome titled 'Gems and their uses', a special artifact found only in the Far East. As directed, take it to Limmir in Gates of Morning; he can be found south of the main road roughly halfway across the city.

Limmir will explain that the tome gives details on creating really powerful magic amulets, but that you need to find the Valley of the Moon in the southern mountains and summon Limmir there via a scroll he provides. Note that talking to Limmir about the book will permanently remove him from Gates of Morning, and his crafting services can not be accessed until you complete the quest.

The final level of the Valley of the Moon contains an island full of moonstones; use the scroll here to summon Limmir. Limmir will enter the map from the northeast and walk to a place directly southwest of the glimmerstones. Once there, he will start a ritual to purify the area, and a count-down turn timer will appear. The timer is 370 turns long. Also, various demons will begin spawning from the three portals in the northeast. Your task is to keep Limmir alive until the timer reaches zero. The demons that spawn are normally random, but once there are less than 100 turns remaining on the timer, the Corrupted Daelach is guaranteed to be the next demon to spawn.

You will be alerted if Limmir is being attacked by demons. Every 10 game turns, Limmir will summon a radius-2 blast of holy light around himself. This deals Light damage to undead and demons, and heals everyone else that it hits, but it does not affect Limmir himself. The damage begins at 111, and increases as the timer counts down, reaching 164 as the timer is about to reach zero. The healing is half the damage.

If you manage to keep Limmir alive until the timer runs out, then you will complete the quest. All remaining non-unique demons on the level will die, and you will gain the achievement Gem of the Moon. Limmir will now offer you a special service: For a small fee, he will imbue amulets with two gems per amulet, as long as the gems are different. In addition to the two gems provided by the player, Limmir will also imbue the amulet with a random gem, for a total of three gems. These amulets are called Limmir's Amulet of the Moon, regardless of what they are made of. After the quest, Limmir will remain in the Valley of the Moon, where you can visit him if you desire his services. Limmir will craft as many two-gem amulets as you like (provided you have the necessary resources and gold), and he will also craft rings again (though just with a single gem).
