Gem of The Living is a key item in Mortal Kombat 11. It’s used to open one of the first doors you’ll encounter in the Courtyard, which is the first area of the MK11 Krypt. It’s in a pretty obvious place, but since it’s early on in your adventures, you might not realize how stuff works yet. If that’s the case, this guide will show you where to find Mortal Kombat 11 Gem of The Living, so you can explore the Krypt.
Where to find Gem of The Living
The door that requires the Gem of The Living is to the left of the first gong, in the room adjacent to the starting room of the Courtyard (1562, 5263). Break the cracked wall next to Kronika’s Time Vault, and you’ll see the gong as soon as you pass through it.
Hit the gong with your hammer, go back to the Courtyard and head south. Turn right when you reach the forge, and follow the wooden scaffolding. When you reach the warrior shrine, turn right again. As soon as you step into the corridor, a meteorite will fall down from the sky, destroying one of the statues in the process. Approach it (485, -6211), and use your hammer to break it open. It’ll drop the Gem of the Living. Now all you have to do is go back and interact with the door, and it’ll open.
Some people get confused by the fact that hitting stuff with the hammer seems to be the solution to so many problems in the Krypt. You’ll get used to it. There’s too many new stuff right off the bat, too many item names you’re expected to remember, so it might be a bit overwhelming if you don’t have experience with the Krypt from earlier games.
