Detailed WalkthroughEdit

Receiving the QuestEdit

Once have you completed sufficient contracts for them, Azzan or Burz gro-Khash will tell you to speak with Modryn Oreyn for further duties. Modyrn tells you that your old friend Maglir has defaulted on yet another contract, this time in Bravil, and he wants you to find out why once again.

...You Have To Do It YourselfEdit

Travel to Bravil and ask around town or in the local Fighters Guild about Maglir. You'll be directed to The Lonely Suitor Lodge, where you will quickly find Maglir. Speak to him and he'll reveal he's defected to the Blackwood Company for work, as you will notice from his new armor.

How the next part of this quest plays out is affected by the actions you took in Unfinished Business:

  • If you previously covered for Maglir, he'll tell you about Aryarie himself.
  • If you dutifully told Modryn Oreyn the truth about Maglir's first defaulted contract, he'll get quite upset with you, calling you a rat and refusing to speak with you any further. At this stage you can either return to Modryn Oreyn, who will tell you to talk to Aryarie, or speak directly with her in the Bravil Mages Guild for details on completing the contract.

Robber's Glen CaveEdit

Aryarie can be found on the main floor of the Guild Hall between 8am and 10pm. She needs ten samples of imp gall for her research and doesn't trust the Blackwood Company to do the job. She suggests Robber's Glen Cave as a likely place to find imps and marks the cave's location on your map.

Robber's Glen Cave is one of the few places in the game where imps are always guaranteed to appear. You will find twelve imps in the cave, making it straightforward to fill Aryarie's request. As a monster dungeon, it also has good quality treasure and worth exploring regardless. It is located north of Bravil on the Green Road.

However, you do not need to visit Robber's Glen Cave to complete this quest, as any imp gall will suffice. If you already have ten samples in your inventory, you can immediately give them to Aryarie. Alternatively, you can visit any of the other places detailed on the relevant article to obtain the necessary samples. If you are the Mages Guild Arch-Mage and already have a sample, you can use the enchanted chest in the Arch-Mage's quarters to quickly get ten.


Return to Aryarie to receive a leveled Ring of Aegis, which has a constant Shield enchantment. These rings are available at a much lower level (4 levels lower) than anywhere else in the game.

Level Item Name Enchantment
1-4 Base Ring of Aegis Shield 12pts
5-9 Ring of Aegis Shield 15pts
10+ Grand Ring of Aegis Shield 18pts

Return to Modryn Oreyn for the rest of your reward: a standard level-dependent gold reward, one Fame point, and advancement to the rank of Defender. Now that you have finally earned some of Modryn's respect, he will suggest it's time to talk about the Blackwood Company, which leads to your next Fighters Guild quest for him - Azani Blackheart.


  • This quest was originally meant to feature a shrine at some point, as there's an unused activator bearing the name "FGD04ShrineTEMP" that can still be found in the files. Although it has no script attached, and as such, doesn't do anything when activated.

  • Not all Journal Entries may appear in your journal; which entries appear and which entries do not depends on the manner in which the quest is done.
  • Stages are not always in order of progress. This is usually the case with quests that have multiple possible outcomes or quests where certain tasks may be done in random order.
  • If an entry is marked as "Finishes Quest" it means the quest disappears from the Active Quest list, but you may still receive new entries for that quest.
  •   It is possible to use the console to advance through the quest by entering setstage FGD04Defector stage, where stage is the number of the stage you wish to complete. It is not possible to un-complete (i.e. go back) quest stages. See SetStage for more information.
