Detailed WalkthroughEdit


Big Helende at Dirty Muriel's Cornerclub in Wolverine Hall asks if you would like to steal Felen Maryon's ebony staff from his tower in Tel Branora. She doesn't expect anybody will be up for the challenge, and you can refuse the quest without penalty as this is Helende's last quest for you. Since Maryon's home is a Telvanni tower, Helende is kind enough to provide three Quality Rising Force potions.

Felen's Ebony StaffEdit

Tel Branora is at the far southeast corner of the map and is easiest to reach by boat. Felen can be found up in Therana's Chamber, accessed through the Upper Tower, east of the docks. He sells some powerful Conjuration spells, including some spells that can be purchased nowhere else (such as Summon Golden Saint), so you may wish to spare him if you can avoid it. His staff is leaning against the bookcase behind him, so anything you can do to increase your sneak effectiveness (such as Chameleon) is helpful, or you can try to walk around the back of the bookcase and take the staff from there.

When you return to Helende with the staff, she'll give you the choice of keeping it or a cut of the profits from selling it (250 gold). Either way, she also gives you a Ring of Far Reaching and removes your bounty.


  • You can stand behind the tree/branch (over the bed) and use telekinesis to retrieve both the staff and several other valuable items.
  • You can acquire both rewards, by killing her and taking it from her body. This is her last quest, so you will not lose out on any quests to do so. You can taunt her into attacking you to avoid getting expelled from the Thieves' Guild.
