Quick WalkthroughEdit

  1. Talk to Garisa Llethri in his manor in Ald'ruhn for duties.
  2. Either organize a slave revolt:
    1. Talk to people around Caldera to learn that if Dahleena were freed, the slaves might revolt.
    2. Find a slave key in the guard tower and free Dahleena.
  3. Or kill the mine operators:
    1. Kill Odral Helvi and Stlennius Vibato.
  4. Return to Llethri to complete the quest.

Detailed WalkthroughEdit


Once you complete the Evidence of Corruption quest for him, Garisa Llethri in his manor in Ald'ruhn will ask you to go and shut down the Caldera Mine for him.

Disrupting the MineEdit

Talk to people around Caldera to learn that if Dahleena were freed (or killed), the slaves might revolt, causing the mine to close. Choose either method and report back to Llethri to complete the quest. He will reward you with a pair of ebony boots and a reputation point.

An alternative way of closing the mine is to kill the mine operators Odral Helvi and Stlennius Vibato. If you take this route, Llethri tells you that you have caused "political problems" and you will receive only 10 Disposition with him and you will receive neither the ebony boots nor the reputation point.


  • A slave key can be found at the top of the mine's guard tower. Stlennius Vibato carries another one.
  • This quest can be completed by a non-Redoran if you have the Caldera ebony mine topic, by killing Dahleena and then reporting to Garisa Llethri.


  • Do not free Dahleena before receiving this quest. Doing so will cause the quest to start at stage 50, but then the only way to complete the quest and receive all of the rewards is to kill her.
    •   This can be fixed by progressing the previous quest, Evidence of Corruption, with the following console command: Journal, "HR_CalderaCorrupt", 100. Garisa will then recognize that Dahleena has been freed when you speak to him.

Quest StagesEdit

The following Quest_ID and Index codes can be used with the Journal Console command to manually update the quest to a certain point.
