Step 1: Speak to Meros

Step 2: Find Luskas

Meros directs you to the northwest. Follow the road a short distance until you reach a small clearing where you'll find Luskas, known as The Cold-Hearted. Instead of cooperating, Luskas will attack you. Prepare for a tough fight as Luskas will summon reinforcements.

Step 3: Defeat Luskas

Engage Luskas and his henchmen. Use your Evade skill to avoid his powerful attacks and focus on taking out the minions quickly to reduce the number of threats. Once Luskas is defeated, collect the Payment of Gemstones from his corpse.

With the gemstones in hand, return to Menestad. You can either run back or use the Waypoint if it's already unlocked. Hand over the gemstones to Meros to complete the quest.
