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 Horde version of this quest, see Quest:Taking Precautions (Horde).

Objectives Edit

Obtain 5 Crystal Vials, 5 Arcane Powder, and 5 Blood Nettle.


I'd be wary of anyone identifying himself as the rightful owner of the crate and its contents. He didn't warn you of the danger?

Here's a better idea: let's work together to recover the crate and ensure that its contents can't hurt anyone. To protect ourselves, we're going to need a draught made from a few ingredients that can be found around the city.

Buy some arcane powder from a reagent merchant, get vials from an alchemy merchant, and pick some blood nettle from the fields[52.2, 5.4] north of the city.


Did you get all the ingredients?


Sometimes, I think I should've followed my father into alchemy.

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