  • Can be traded to Paparoon in Nashmau when Duties, Tasks, and Deeds is flagged. He will then tell you the remaing number of gems that you need. Alexandrite traded to Paparoon can never be retrieved.
  • Because 30,000 Alexandrites are required for Duties, Tasks, and Deeds, and the stones themselves stack to 99, 304 item slots are required to store 30,000 Alexandrites on your character. Therefore, it is impractical to attempt to stockpile 30,000 Alexandrites prior to starting the quest.
  • Alexandrites cannot be sent via Delivery Box.
