Detailed WalkthroughEdit


It seems that Edwinna Elbert in the Ald'ruhn Guild of Mages is waiting for a Potion of Detect Creatures from Skink-in-Tree's-Shade in the Sadrith Mora Mage's Guild. Edwinna needs you to go to Sadrith Mora and check on Skink-in-Tree's-Shade's progress for her.

Potion DeliveryEdit

To do this, you need to travel to Sadrith Mora. The quickest and by far the most convenient method is to grab a Guild Guide over to the Sadrith Mora hall. When you arrive, chat with Skink-in-Tree's-Shade about Detect Creatures Potion and Skink will gladly retrieve it for you. In addition, Skink will increase his Disposition toward you by 5 points, and tells you to come see him when you return for some duties.

Return to Ald'ruhnEdit

Return to Ald'ruhn to Edwinna. Upon providing the potion to Edwinna you are rewarded with a 10 point increase in Disposition and an Exclusive Potion of Shadow.


  • After this quest, Skink-in-Tree's-Shade's first quest, Escort Tenyeminwe becomes available.
  • If you accidentally lose the Potion of Detect Creatures you can pick one up from Ranosa Gilvayn.
  • You have to receive a potion from Skink-in-Tree's-Shade before Edwinna will finish the quest, even if it's not the one you eventually hand over.


  • Once you give Edwinna the potion, your journal will update stating that you gave the potion to Neminda
