The eye of truth was a special ritual used by sha'irs to enhance their gen's vision.[1]


The sha'ir needed to provide a pair of rubies worth at least 300 dinars each. The eye of truth ritual took 24 hours to complete.[1]

If successful this ritual granted the gen the permanent ability to see through magical illusions. The chance of a gen being able to see through an illusion increased based upon how powerful their sha'ir was during the ritual.[1]
