Getting started[edit | edit source]

Obtaining a lens[edit | edit source]

  • Leave the house and go east to the abandoned buildings.

  • Go east, then north, and then head west until a guard is seen guarding a kitchen.
  • Kill him or lure him away from the kitchen.
  • Inspect the stove in the kitchen to receive lens mould.

Additional rewards/activities

Should a player look through the telescope again after the quest is completed, they will see the Scorpio constellation. The Observatory professor will suggest going to see his assistant. Upon speaking to the assistant, who reveals that his name is Patrick, he'll thank you for having made his life easier and give you a jug of wine.

He also mentions a book on the nearby table named 'The book of astronomy', which speaks of Scorpius' grave. Travel past the abandoned buildings, and keep going north until you see some level 28 ghosts near the entrance of the Ourania runecrafting altar. The Spirit of Scorpius is located in this area with the ghosts; after a brief conversation, it will give you an unholy mould and tell you to return when you are worthy. With the mould, a ball of wool and a silver bar, make an unholy symbol and return to the grave so that Scorpius can bless it.
