I used to carry about 50 pounds of equipment out into the field to do surveys. This red crystal stuff has changed surveying entirely! Now it's a lot faster.

- What do you need?
- Can you remind me how surveying works?
- Oh come on, weren't you paying attention? I taught you the recipe for making surveys. To get started, make a Serbule Hills Rubywall Crystal Survey. It'll show you a spot on the map. Go there, use the survey again to verify, and dig up the gems. Then rinse and repeat.
- So I should make a Serbule Hills Rubywall Crystal Survey, and then use the survey to find more red crystals?
- You got it right, yep. Practice making some surveys and get a little nest egg of red crystals, and then I can teach you how to survey for better stuff.
- Okay, thanks. What exactly are these red crystals?
- I dunno, but they're a huge time saver! They're the whole reason I'm working from here instead of somewhere nice. My old survey techniques required a lot of time and effort out in the hot sun, using a theodolite, making topographic maps, testing soil, all kinds of hard work. But these magic crystals seem to know things about the land, and it's easy to tap into their power.
- ... Actually, you know, they really creep me out. They're kind of scary. And they seem to be growing on their own -- there's more of 'em around than there was just a year ago.
- But since they're all over the place in Serbule and Serbule Hills, we might as well use 'em!
Whatcha want? I'm working here.
Sorry to bother you. Just curious what you're working on.
I'm a surveyour. I'm surveyin'.
- Like taking polls of opinions?
- No, dummy. not that kind of survey! Land surveys! I'm prospecting for gems and ores.
- Oh, that sounds valuable.
- Eh, not really. I mean I make a living, but surveyin' costs are pretty high. So until I hit another motherlod, I'm just coastin' on my cash reserves.
- Oh. Well I'll let you work.
