Dialogue[edit]

Introduction
Crystallographer Smoxxi: Yes, it is I—Senior Crystallographer Smoxxi.
Crystallographer Smoxxi: You may be familiar with my thaumaturgical graduate thesis: "Asymmetric Crystalline Refraction of Magical Waves".
Crystallographer Smoxxi: Councilor Zudo described it as "subversive", "fascinating", and "pretty good".
Crystallographer Smoxxi: I need quality crystals to continue my groundbreaking research. None of that low-grade human garbage.
If human:
Crystallographer Smoxxi: No offense.
Crystallographer Smoxxi: Bring me crystals and I'll reward you handsomely. Plus a special thanks in my next paper!
Crystallographer Smoxxi: Which I assure you is great exposure and could land you a dream internship with the Inquest.
Speaking to her
Commander?
Talk more option tango.png If you like crystals so much, why aren't you studying Aurene's chamber?
Crystallographer Smoxxi: Um, what kind of question is that? Aurene is HUGE! Garguantuan. Massive. Big boned. I am TINY. Miniscule. Petite.
Crystallographer Smoxxi: If that beast turned rabid, she would devour me in one chomp.
Crystallographer Smoxxi: But if you're going in there, do keep an eye out for lovely exotic crystals, pretty please.
Talk more option tango.png Let's hear that amazing introduction again. (See above)
Talk collection option.png I explored a vision for Aurene and brought back this weapon.
She's developing at an alarming rate. I mean, how can crystals formed from her visions manifest new realities? I can feel its harmonizations from here. So many opportunities... Here, bring it closer.
Talk quest option tango.png What kind of opportunity does this <weapon type> give me?
You should feel drawn to historical touchstones of the weapon AND its owner. I'm 68.35% sure...something...will happen when you find them. Don't you want to find out what? Don't leave me in suspense.
Talk back option tango.png I have another question.
Talk end option tango.png I'll get to that then.
Talk collection option.png I brought back another weapon from a vision...
Excelsior! I've been doing research on these. Follow the pull to touchstones of the weapon and its owner, and their resonance will bring alternate versions of the weapon from the Mists to you!
Talk quest option tango.png Am I craving a Meatoberfest sausage because of this rifle? (With Blood Legion Longshot of Strength in your inventory)
Yes! Follow the pull! It'll guide you like a big, Misty checklist!
Talk back option tango.png I want to ask another question.
Talk end option tango.png I'll get to that then.
Talk quest option tango.png Is this staff why I feel conflicted about the human-charr armistice? (With Blood Legion Staff of Strength in your inventory)
Yes! Follow the pull! It'll guide you like a big, Misty checklist!
Talk back option tango.png I want to ask another question.
Talk end option tango.png I'll get to that then.
Talk quest option tango.png Is this sword why I just want to snuggle Ryland Steelcatcher? (With Blood Legion Combat Blade of Strength in your inventory)
Yes! Follow the pull! It'll guide you like a big, Misty checklist!
Talk back option tango.png I want to ask another question.
Talk end option tango.png I'll get to that then.
Talk quest option tango.png So, this greatsword is why I feel like proving myself worthy to all charr? (With Blood Legion Flamesaw of Strength in your inventory)
Yes! Follow the pull! It'll guide you like a big, Misty checklist!
Talk back option tango.png I want to ask another question.
Talk end option tango.png I'll get to that then.
Talk quest option tango.png So, this pistol is why I want to change the oil on a tank? (With Blood Legion Pistol of Strength in your inventory)
Yes! Follow the pull! It'll guide you like a big, Misty checklist!
Talk back option tango.png I want to ask another question.
Talk end option tango.png I'll get to that then.
Talk collection option.png You're looking very excited about something...
I've detected some curious vibrations since you finished that weapon collection. It seems that in the Mists there's version of Berghild, that norn armorsmith over there, that made a cape. A CAPE!
Talk more option tango.png I like capes.
We can make that happen. I'll just need a teensy, almost inconsequential, let's say...negligible set of crystals to make you a prototype "harmonizing mist loom." Then you can use it to get that cape.
Talk merchant tango.png Let's trade some crystals.
Talk end option tango.png I have to go.
Talk end option tango.png Capes are so pre-Searing.
Talk merchant tango.png Let's trade some crystals.
Talk end option tango.png Good-bye.

Quotes[edit]

Greetings
It's been a rough day. A shiny new crystal would cheer me right up.
I know you're out there fighting dragons and saving the world but try to stay focused on what really matters: crystals!

Crystallographer Smoxxi

Crystalline Resonance Cascade!


Commander,

Very exciting news! A crystalline resonance cascade scenario has occurred! You can read my latest publication, "Crystalline Waveform Resonance Cascade Collapse Scenarios and You: A brief primer by award-winning Crystallographer Smoxxi" very soon, but I wanted to let you know about it right away since it centers on you!

All of your red and green prophet shards and crystals are now blue! Additionally, it seems the shards localized to this area will all be blue from now on as well! Isn't that amazing? I'll still, of course, accept blue shards from you for recompense, and the chests nearby seem to function fine with this change.

I assure you nothing has been lost in this scenario, and your friends may think they still have red and green shards for a time, but the moment they try to do anything with them, they will be blue. Try not to be too discombobulated—even though things have suddenly changed, they still effectively remain the same, possibly even better since you don't have to think about what color this week is now!
