Hallow's End icon

The subject of this article or section is part of Hallow's End, a seasonal event that lasts two weeks. Once the event has run its course, this will no longer be available until next year, but there are no guarantees.

For the Alliance version of this quest, see Quest:Taking Precautions (Alliance).

Objectives Edit

Obtain 5 Crystal Vials, 5 Strange Dust, and 5 Blood Nettle.


So someone else hired you to retrieve this crate? I don't like the sound of that.

That crate's contents belong in the care of the Reliquary. The items it holds are very powerful and very dangerous.

We have to find the meeting that Dran set up between the thief and the collector, but first, we'll need to protect ourselves from the effects of handling that crate.

Acquire some strange dust, get vials from an alchemy merchant, and pick some blood nettle in the Valley of Wisdom[42, 39]


Did you get all the ingredients?


Let's see what I can remember from the alchemy lessons of my youth. If it explodes, I've done something wrong.

This concoction should protect us from the worst effects of carrying or handling the crate.
