    Long version

    In Demiplane of Life, every 4.5 minutes:
    Grubbonion hastily writes a note, ties it to a key, and throws it down the well.
    (Grubbonion mutters a random line of text.)
    In Demiplane of Decay, meanwhile:
    A rusty key plops up from the depths of the well and lands on the ledge.

    If you pick up the Cracked Sul Vius Key from the lip of the well in Demiplane of Decay:
    You grab a rusty, broken key off of the well ledge. A note tied to it reads, 'If you find this key, throw it back down the well!'

    If you right-click the key in Demiplane of Decay while standing by the well:
    You begin casting Throw down the well.
    You throw the Cracked Sul Vius Key down the well, like the note asked you to. Nothing seems to happen.
    Meanwhile, in Demiplane of Life:
    Grubbonion laughs as a key flies up out of the well and lands on the ledge next to him.

    If you right-click the key in Demiplane of Decay, but are not standing near the well:
    The attached note says to throw it down a well in Sul Vius.

    Grubbonion rolls his eyes and says slowly, 'Wet er yew slew? [SHIIIEEENNNSSSSSS].
    You say, 'SHIIIEEENNNSSSSSS'

    Grubbonion looks ready to punch you as he blurts out, 'Eh geds, yew er de dumbest Wood Elf I ever seen. Siense, lek where ye de da experements wed de. Ye knew wet em telkin bet? Sayense!
    You say, 'science'

    Grubbonion slaps the side of his face, 'Yes! Fenly! Seense, lek I sed! Enways, ed ell be bet des [key].'
    You say, 'key'

    Grubbonion gets a greedy look in his eyes and pulls you in close to whisper, 'Des plen net be wet et seems. Der be enether sed te et. I been threwen keys dewn dis well wed [nets teched]. Dey kep cemen beck.'
    You say, 'notes attached'

    Grubbonion rolls his eyes again and says, 'NETS ETECHED. Meh geds, yeh be dem. Ge ta de edder sed en lek fer de key I drew.'

    You will need to enter the building mostly EAST and a little North of Grubbonion while mirror is Decay. Then go all the way upstairs and follow the bridge back South to the Top where both quest mobs spawn :

    17. Obliterate Korinth the Crusher 0/1 (Sul Vius: Demiplane of Decay)
    Weaken Korinth in battle and then use the Healing Ward to smite him when he is vulnerable at 26%.

    [b]---------------Make sure he disappears before cliking over.


    18. Travel to the Demiplane of Life 0/1 (Sul Vius: Demiplane of Life)
    Click where you kill Korinth.


    19. Corrupt Thiroc the Redeemer 0/1 (Sul Vius: Demiplane of Life)
    Attack Thiroc the Redeemer till 26% and then everyone but one person click back over to Decay. One of the people who clicks back over to Decay needs to have the Decay Spike. Immediately click the Decay Spike in Decay.

    [b]********* Have a second toon parked in Decay at the same spot you kill Thiroc the White Horse .. have your toon that was beating on Thiroc stand right on top of him while the other toon in decay clicks the Spike to get the update *********

    Wasted an hour killing Thiroc over and over and due to the time of zoning over and not standing right on top of him, it never would give me the update.
