Pre-Requisites:
- Level 85
- No task requirements

This is a solo task that begins with Vex Derex Lux (map) at location 800, 935, 31 (in the dervish room west of the palace entry room: findable with CTRL+F).

Pre-Requisites:
- Level 85
- No task requirements

You say, 'Hail, Vex Derex Lux'

Vex Derex Lux billows threateningly, 'You are either [brave] or [foolish] to dare approach me. Tell me, which is it?'

You say, 'Foolish...'

Vex Derex Lux rumbles in surprise, 'One who admits what they do not know can only be called wise.' It shifts, its voice taking on a gentler tone, 'Perhaps you could [solve] a riddle that has puzzled me for many ages?'

You say, 'Solve?'

Vex Derex Lux says 'To the Northeast lies a hall, upon whose walls ancient runes are inscribed. They call out to me, and I sense something familiar, yet I cannot read them. I feel these runes are important to me, and would ask you to [read] them and tell me what you've learned.'

You say, 'I will read them'

Vex Derex Lux says 'I've learned the runes may only be read by those whose eyes possess a certain quality. And though your eyes may not, the spirits who haunt that hall are known to be able to read the runes. I believe this quality may be gained temporarily by applying their ectoplasm on one's eyes.'

You have been assigned the task 'Here's Ectoplasm in Your Eye!'.

Vex Derex Lux has asked you to head to the hall of records, to the northeast, and find a way to decipher the ancient runes. They can only be read by 'one whose eyes possess a certain quality' - whatever that means.

Once you loot the ectoplasms, it's possible to get to the room for the runes with just IVU on by returning to the main entrance area and going up from there. There will be anywhere from 0 to 3 mobs next to rune walls, so kill them first to make it easy. No adds came during fights, but fought right next to each wall. Good luck!

confused?

I was a bit confused at first about which walls to click near. If you look at that room in the north east, it looks like it has 2 big X's formed by the walls. The north wall is the horizontal wall above it, between the 2 staircases. You have to be on the outside (north face) of the wall when you click. Same goes for the other 3 walls.

The rune walls is the northeastern part on your map that looks like a Celtic Cross. The room has ghost all over and there are 4 walls with ruins on them (hint). Kill the ghost around the walls before you clicky the ectoplasm. The near by ghost will agro you. Your invis to undead will drop and they will attack.

The Quest could be easy....
Travel into the northeastern big room. You reach it easily going West from Aten Ha Ra through the corridor to the room with the big curtains and the shadows which are not KOS. There is a corridor to this northeastern room In this room there are enough Ghosts to kill for the Ectoplasm. You need to kill them because activating the Ectoplasm on the runes will destroy INVU. So a whole group can easily go to the place with INVU or fight the small corridor with about 3-4 mobs to the Runes-Room and then clear the Rune-Wall-Areas in N/W/S/E and finish the quest. Stay on the most outside area of N/W/E/S to activate the ectoplasm.

Did that the other way and got all Ectoplasms in all other areas and corridors and got killed on the first application destroying INVU :(

Use the Ectoplasm to read the runes on the East wall --- 0/1 --- Plane of Shadow
Use the Ectoplasm to read the runes on the South wall --- 0/1 --- Plane of Shadow

Each time you click the ectoplasm when near enough to the appropriate wall, you face the wall automatically.
