General Information


Lodestones created by players in the navigators guild require the use of gems when creating a stone.
The type of lodestone created is affected by existing factors (the skill mastery of navigation, etc), as well as the value of the gemstone. The value of a gemstone is determined the stone's size, condition, type, and in some cases, color as well.

Start and unknown lodestones can no longer be created by players. Unknown lodestones can be gotten from other sources, however.

Types of lodestones Lodestone takes you to...
Adventurer Guild Entrance The Adventurer Guild entrance in Illium City.
specific location A random room in the mud, which remains the same for the life of the lodestone.
choice A specific location lodestone, but you choose the location to set the lodestone to.
island (Hyboria, Emerald, etc) To just outside the docks of that island.
random A random room in the mud with every use.
unknown A random room in the mud that you have not explored before with every use.
  Colors: red (worst), orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet (best).
  The better the color the more uses you will get from the lodestone.
