Bring the Cursed Eye of Paleth to Glorin Steelbrow at Menethil Harbor in Wetlands.


Opening the chest reveals a blackened orb, pulsing with an eerie light. This must be the foul Eye of Paleth that damned these sailors' souls.

Such corruption should be purged. Perhaps a priest in Menethil Harbor could help you.


You will be able to choose one of these rewards:
Inv shoulder 16.png [Haunted Pauldrons] Inv belt 37.png [Fitzsimmons' Belt]
Inv chest cloth 01.png [Steelbrow's Old Robe] Inv belt 37.png [Fitzsimmons' Cinch]

You will also receive:


How can I help you, <lad/lass>?


The Eye of Paleth? You say Fitzsimmons sent you out?

By the light... not again. Fitzsimmons is dead, lad. You're not the first to come to me like this, either.


Upon completion:

Glorin Steelbrow says: The Eye of Paleth was retrieved and cleansed a long time ago, <class>. We thought the curse lifted.
Glorin Steelbrow says: Not a year ago, poor old Fitzsimmons passed away, his body ruined by drink.
Glorin Steelbrow says: Ever since, now and then, people claim he's spoken to them and told them to get the eye...
Glorin Steelbrow says: Cursed to roam the earth forever... not even poor Fitzsimmons could escape.
Glorin Steelbrow says: Don't ask what you actually brought me, <class>. You're better off forgetting this ever happened.

This is largely a reference to the pre-Cataclysm quest chain, wherein the player character DOES bring the cursed eye in to get it cleansed.
