Detailed WalkthroughEdit

Help a TraderEdit

If you are lucky, looking for the younger Zainsubani, or quite thorough in your exploration, you may come across Lucan Ostorius to the northwest of Ald'ruhn, very much in the middle of nowhere (west of the Dushariran Shrine). Apparently, he has been waiting to meet someone there and they have not yet shown up, and he asks you for a favor.

The Weapon DeliveryEdit

You are to deliver four weapons (a Steel Shortsword, a Silver Flameblade, a Steel Staff and a Silver War Axe) to Yak gro-Skandar at the Rat in the Pot club in Ald'ruhn. You'll receive a whole 100 gold for the delivery and, if you are a Thieves Guild member, a faction increase as well.

If you decide to keep the weapons instead of delivering them, know that the first time you leave Ald'ruhn, Lucan will appear and attack you. Unfortunately, once you're in this position, there's no way to fix it in game since Yak won't accept the weapons anymore and Lucan won't calm down. You can either kill him or lead him out to the wilderness and then lose him. It should also be noted that this fail-safe can trigger while you're still in the vicinity of Ald'ruhn, so it's quite easy to unintentionally fail this quest because of this oversight.


  • If you don't have the weapons in your inventory when you talk to Yak, you will lose five points of Thieves Guild reputation.
  • If you kill Yak for any reason during the quest, Lucan will attack you as soon as you talk to him.
  • This quest was probably supposed to behave differently depending on whether you are in the Thieves Guild or not. If you were in the Guild, Lucan probably would have give you a slightly different set of weapons. If you weren't in the Guild, Yak would not have increased your Guild reputation. As it is, Lucan always gives you the same set of weapons. When you deliver the weapons, Yak always increases your reputation in the Guild by 5 points, whether you are in the Guild or not. See the talk page for details.


  • Even if you refuse the quest, Lucan's scripting will make him attack you as soon as you leave Ald'ruhn and return.
  • You can pickpocket the weapons from Lucan before starting the quest. He will give you four more when you agree to help him. ?

10 I met Lucan Ostorius, who claims to be a trader. He is waiting for Yak gro-Skandar, a smith with whom he was supposed to trade some goods. Apparently, though, gro-Skandar has yet to show up, agitating Lucan greatly. It seems Lucan would like me to help him by delivering a shipment of weapons for him to Yak gro-Skandar at the Rat in the Pot in Ald'ruhn. He has offered to pay me 100 septims for my time, and he asks me to swear an oath to Zenithar to seal the bargain.
15 I met a fellow guildmember, Lucan Ostorius, who would like some help getting a shipment of stolen weapons to Yak gro-Skandar at the Rat in the Pot in Ald'ruhn.
20 I've agreed to help Lucan by taking the weapons to Yak gro-Skandar, and I have sworn a solemn oath to Zenithar that I will fulfill my part of the bargain.
25 I agreed to help Lucan get the weapons to Yak gro-Skandar, and he has agreed to give me 100 septims for my trouble.
30 Finishes quest  I have decided not to help Lucan deliver his shipment. Something seems strange about the man.
35 Finishes quest  I have no time to help Lucan, guildmate or not. Hopefully, I will be forgiven for this.
90 Lucan Ostorius attacked me, apparently assuming I was not going to deliver his weapons.
100 Finishes quest  I met up with Yak gro-Skandar, and delivered the stolen weapons to him. He gave me the 100 septims promised by Lucan Ostorius, and seemed pleased about his goods. It's always good to be able to help a couple of honest traders.
105 Finishes quest  I met up with Yak gro-Skandar, another fellow guild member, in Ald'ruhn. He seemed happy with the shipment, and paid me the 100 septims Lucan promised me.
