This task is the third step in the process of obtaining a Monocle of Blood, the key to the Demi-Plane of Blood.

To request this task, you must have a Polished Mystical Glass Shard from the previous task Check Out a Library Book. Go to Treddlehoop in Corathus Creep.

In this task, you will need a Dreadspire Crest, the key to the southern crypt area of Dreadspire Keep. Kill static drachnids in the pit under the dining room until Aliattis the Drinker or The Restless One spawns. They do not always drop the crest.

You say, 'What special ingredients?'

Treddlehoop says 'Oh, yes. Well, that book you found suggested that it might be possible to make a protective and enhanced coating for the glass. Unfortunately it requires several things that I've never heard of before, many of them sound rather gruesome. Here's a list of the items. I can only guess that you might find them in the Dreadspire somewhere.'

You have been assigned the task 'Eyes Wide Open'.

Find a bag or container coveted by an undead 0/1 Dreadspire Keep

The normal door to the southern crypt area won't open. Using Dreadspire Crest will open a secret door just up the ramp from the foyer at +2535, +100. Kill Funerary Curate and loot Funeral Donation Pouch. He is not always up and can spawn in place of any of the static mobs in the southern crypt.

Create 1 Crypt Blood Slurry using tradeskills 0/1 Dreadspire Keep

In the northern crypt, pick up a ground spawn Crypt Dust. It looks like a small pile of dust which can be inside either of the two open sarcophagi or on the ground next to any sarcophagus.

In the Vivisector lab, pick up a ground spawn Elixir of Velvet Blood. It looks like a glowing red bottle lying on its side and can spawn on any of the tables in the lab or the "altar" in the center of the room.

Combine those two items in the Funeral Donation Pouch to make Crypt Blood Slurry. Note that the two ground spawns can be acquired before receiving the task since there's no task line for picking them up.

Find some cloth owned by a being whose eye was used in making the glass 0/1 Dreadspire Keep

Kill Gronk One-Eye. He roams in the tunnels between the Vivisector lab and the pit. Loot Bloody Cloth Eye Patch.

Deliver 1 Crypt Blood Slurry to Treddlehoop 0/1 Corathus Creep
Deliver 1 Bloody Cloth Eye Patch to Treddlehoop 0/1 Corathus Creep
Deliver 1 Polished Mystical Glass Shard to Treddlehoop 0/1 Corathus Creep

Return to Treddlehoop and hand him Crypt Blood Slurry, Bloody Cloth Eye Patch and Polished Mystical Glass Shard.

Upon turn in.

Treddlehoop dips a glass cutting tool into the slurry and uses it to shape the glass into the slightly oval shape he uses in his monocles. Then he takes the slurry and sloshes it all over the remnants of the eye patch and polishes the lens. You see him hold it up to the light and for a moment it is brilliant and clear. A moment later you see it become blurry near one edge. The blurriness spreads to cover the entire lens. 'That's odd. I really don't understand that.' He examines the lens closely with a very large monocle. 'It is almost as if all of the eyes that make up this glass have closed. It's something spiritual, I believe. It's not something that I can fix. Perhaps a shaman or some other spiritualist can help you with this. If you can clear the lens then bring it back to me with the Wonderful Seeing Device I'll gladly fit the lens into the seeing device for you. I still think this lens has great potential.'

Everyone in the task receives Blurry Lens.

After you deliver the 3 requested items, the following is shown in yellow text just as the task ends:

The list of ingredients that Treddlehoop wants is interesting. You'll need to find a liquid that will allow for a finer polish of the glass without harming the eye lenses. You will also need to gather some grave dust. This apparently links the eye more closely with the living world.

Been unable to find the corpse dust, killed god knows how many mobs and searches in and around all the coffins without any joy.

It blends in with the floor texture making it very hard to spot if it's on the ground. Look on the far end of the left coffin, or check the others if it's not in that spot.

You can have the Dreadspire Crest the Crypt Dust and the Elixir of Velvet Blood before even getting the task. The Funeral Donation Pouch and the Bloody cloth eye patch must be looted they are collection steps in the task.

The text implies that someone in the group must have a Dreadspire Crest in order to request this task. However, this is not the case, the task may be requested even if nobody has a crest. My group today was able to request this task even though nobody had a crest.

However, someone does need a crest in order to get into the southern crypt area. Access to the southern crypt is required in order to complete the task.
