Quick WalkthroughEdit

Detailed WalkthroughEdit


After completing the Rescue Jocien Ancois quest, Radd Hard-Heart in the Moonmoth Legion Fort asks you to go to Gnaar Mok to rescue the Imperial citizen Dandsa, who was captured by raiders and is being held in the cavern Abernanit.

Finding AbernanitEdit

Once you arrive in Gnaar Mok, head directly east from the boat, across the water. You will find Abernanit in the middle of a small peninsula close by.

Rescue DandsaEdit

Follow the tunnel until you reach a platform with a raider. Go up the ladder and continue in the tunnel. You'll find Dandsa with the lead raider who, like the others, attacks on sight unless your disposition is 90+. Speak with Dandsa and escort her outside the cavern once all the raiders are dealt with. Return to Radd Hard-Heart to complete the quest.


  • Make sure you kill the two Breeding Netch just north of Gnaar Mok while you're in the area, as you will save yourself another trip back for a later quest.
  • If Dandsa dies during the quest, Radd Hard-Heart's disposition towards you drops 20 points each time you bring up the topic, down to 0.
  • Dandsa can be rescued before you receive the quest, but you cannot report your success before finishing Scrap Metal.
