Seizing the Dawn

From DDO Compendium

Morgrave University has asked you to retrieve the Eye of Irian, lost long ago in in the desert canyons of Menechtarun. The only catch - you are not the only one seeking to claim it.


Falin d'Phiarlan is in search of the Eye of Irian, hidden within a Menechtarun temple. He is asking you continue where a previous cleric left off and find the Eye.
