Magnifying glass detail

The magnifying glass is the reward for completing the Cryptic Clue Fest, three-fifths of Cryptic Clue Fest II, Cryptic Clue Fest III and Cryptic Clue Fest IV. It is held in one hand and can be equipped with a shield. When on the Worn Equipment, players can right click and press 'Sleuth'. If you lose your magnifying glass, you can get a new one from Diango in Draynor Village, or from the Toy box of your Player-owned house. The magnifying glass has stats slightly lower than those of a bronze warhammer.

  • The Magnifying glass closely resembles the Mirror obtained during the quest Nature Spirit.
  • The reward was going to be Roddeck's pipe as confirmed by a Jagex Moderator, but was changed to the magnifying glass before the event was released[1].
  • After the third Cryptic Clue fest, players who had obtained the Magnifying glass for the first time got a message saying, "You must have completed a Cryptic Clue fest to do this emote." when trying to perform the emote if they had not talked to Roddeck and obtained the investigator's outfit yet.
