Detailed WalkthroughEdit


In the Redoran Council Hall in Ald'ruhn, Neminda's first duty for you is to take care of some nasty mudcrabs that have attacked Drulene Falen's guar herd.

Drulene Falen's HutEdit

Drulene Falen's Hut and her herd are far to the west of Ald'ruhn, near the coast. It is quite a walk from Ald'ruhn, so don't be surprised if it takes a little bit of time. Talk with Falen, and she'll tell you that the mudcrabs dragged one of her guars off to the southwest.

Dealing with the PestsEdit

Head off in the direction Falen just told you, and you should find a dead guar along with two hyper-aggressive mudcrabs. Kill the crabs and return to Falen for a reward of some Hackle-Lo leaves.

Return to NemindaEdit

Report back to Neminda in Ald'ruhn to complete the quest.


  • If Drulene Falen is dead before you start this quest, you will receive a -10 Disposition penalty from Neminda and she will give you another quest. If Drulene Falen dies during this quest, you will be expelled from House Redoran.
  • If you have already killed these crabs, you do not need kill more or speak with Falen; you can immediately finish the quest.


  • You don't have to be a member of House Redoran to receive the rewards from Drulene Falen, although it will not be possible to get the journal entry that complete this quest without using the console.
