The Collection Offered
Once you have gathered the required items, you will need to offer each dungeon's items up separately. To do this you must gather "Collector Boxes" for the area in which you wish to obtain the gem from.
Head to the Excelsior Halls which is on the World Telepad in the "Custom" Section. Walk east and into the building to the North. Find Aerial the Collector Maker. Map View
Here you must speak the name of the dungeon you wish to get the collector box for. (This must be the dungeon's full name)
Once you have the pieces ready and your collector box in your backpack, it is now time for you to add the items from the dungeon into the collector box.
Upon adding the final piece from the specific dungeon, you will be instantly transported to the designated area for each individual dungeon. Walk North to the npc and he will take your collector box and give you a gem from the area you completed.
You must now wait 72 hours before you can fill another dungeon's collector box.
Warning: The item collector must be in your pack when entering this special room. If you add the final item to the collector while it is on the ground, in your bank box, or somewhere else, you will be transported but unable to trade for the Gem. All items in the collector are destroyed once the last one is placed, and you will have to start over on this dungeon.
Six Gems for a Seventh
Once you have claimed the gems for all 6 dungeons, it is time to use your 7th collector, the Gem Collector. To get the Gem Collector you must revisit Aerial the Collector Maker and say "Gem Collector" Place the 6 gems within, and you will trade one final time for The Gem of Completion. Congratulations you have completed the Mage's Inquisition Quest.
The Joys of Completion
