A potent thrumming of magical nature can be heard and felt emanating from the eye-shaped jewel dropped from Sapphiron's clutches. To mortal ears it is nearly painful to be in the presence of the stone.
Surely such a powerful item of import can only be taken to the queen of the dragons, Alexstrasza the Life-Binder. Seek her counsel atop Wyrmrest Temple in the Dragonblight.
<Name>, you have come into contact with a key to the iris! Do you have it upon your person?
<The queen glances at her consort, Krasus, with eyes full of concern.>
How did you ever come into its possession? Oh, Sapphiron still had his?
This is the break that we've been waiting for to strike at the Aspect of Magic!
<The queen of dragons studies you for a brief moment.>
You are not be able to use the key as-is to access the Focusing Iris, but I can imbue you with a portion of my power; enough to enable you to use it to open the iris a fraction.
It will be enough to draw Malygos's ire!
- Krasus whispers: <Name>, we must speak when the queen is done with you.
- Alexstrasza the Life-Binder says: It is done. You may now open the focusing iris.
