    OK... So I have about 40 blue crystals, I find one of the gypsies and I start dumping them on the gypsy... use them all and he still hasnt changed.. dang! So I go and I farm another 12 blue crystals and go back to the gypsy, someone else has changed him... double dang! So the question is... did I just waste all those crystals or will it remember how many I had used on him?

    nope, you're sol.......unfortunatly, as great and imaginable as this quest is, it's very onesided and faulted.

    -the casual player cannot obtain 50 crystals, not without giving up on daily life.

    -the idea that someone can come along and win a robe after all of your time is spent collecting crystals, and waiting (i use that word strongly) for an npc to change back......did a kid come up with this idea?????

    -allowing a harbinger to be summoned next to the hag's place......yeah, that's a good one.

    -red sparkles behind or on top of stalagmites......

    -notice no ones healing in ice or the anthole??

    the quest for a gem isn't aquirred quickly and 50 crystals to heal wasn't thought out well........

    You realize you can get upwards of 10 crystallized essence per transformation if you are fast.

    I haven't checked the ant hole, but every time I've gone in Ice, that one is healed.

    Not happening if every essence you find is in unreachable areas :/

    And lucky, and playing on a not very populated shard or in off-peak hours. But half a dozen are certainly very feasible, and if you pick the right farming spot for residue (hint: trogs) you can do the whole thing in around 20 minutes, which amounts to 20/25ish essence per hour. Discounting all the red and yellow ones, you can have 50 blues in 3 to four hours.
    Then you have to wait for the gipsy to get sick again, and hope you are the first one there and hope no-one is stealthing nearby, ready to drop the last one =)

    Depends on shard you play on. Try my idea see if it helps. Go to destard turn into monster. Follow the wall to the left to go to shadow wyrms. I usually always find 3-5 there rinse and repeat, sometimes go in ancient wyrm room. I usually get about 8 crystals per corperal essence.
