The Magnifying glass is the reward for completing the Cryptic Clue Fest. 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 closely resembles the Mirror obtained during the quest Nature Spirit.
  • On Sunday, 29 November 2009, the item became available and players were paying in excess of 50,000 coins for the items needed to acquire it.
  • Magnifying glasses are now discontinued.
  • It can be taken to the island of Entrana because it has only negative bonuses.
  • 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].
  • The reward was met with heavy criticism as not being worth the effort to complete the Cryptic Clue Fest. Mod Paul M said "While I'd like to think that if you had some entertainment completing the quest then that would be a decent reward in itself, I do totally accept that it's not as good as if we'd mailed cats riding motorcycles to everyone who got the answer. Maybe next year though, maybe next year." The reward for next year has not yet been confirmed.
