  • The three main components may be completed in any order.
  • There is no "Veteran Mosquito" as such anywhere in Caledon Forest. There is a Female Mosquito that spawns on the south side of Morgan's Spiral and heads towards Danador's Kennel; this is the creature that drops the Mosquito Blood.


Looking ahead[edit]

  • Ascended materials are needed in most HOPE collections. You will need a grand total of 62 Deldrimor Steel Ingots, 25 Spiritwood Planks, 10 Elonian Leather Squares, and 5 Bolts of Damask. It is highly recommended that you begin crafting these as soon as possible to avoid future expenses and/or delays.


  • Most likely an Easter egg left by the developers: three of the items gathered are Deadly Nightshade, Jar of Wurmswort, and Frog's Breath. These three items are the ingredients of Sally's soup/poison in the movie The Nightmare Before Christmas.
