Ancarion, a High Elf wizard, is the leader of the Thalmor on Solstheim. He is attempting to locate a source of stalhrim for the Thalmor. The Stalhrim Source map can be pickpocketed from him, taken from his dead body, or given to you by him in order to complete the quest A New Source of Stalhrim.

A New Source of StalhrimEdit

His greetings:

"You are interfering with official Thalmor business. You will leave immediately if you value your well-being."
"Meddle in our affairs, and your end will be swift and painful."
"Get out of here, before I lose my patience."
"Leave at once! Do not test me, or I promise that you will regret it."

Speaking to him:

I'm here about the Stalhrim map.
"So you know my purpose here, then? I suppose you must have found that dullard of a blacksmith. Unfortunately for you, my mission here is also a secret. To protect it, I have no choice but to silence you. Now, give me one good reason that I should not kill you where you stand."

Three options are available. Note that successfully completing the third option and starting the hidden quest requires a Speech skill of at least 75.

Option Dialogue Reaction
The blacksmith won't talk. You're wasting your time. (Persuade) Passed: "I admit, we are not making the progress I'd hoped. Perhaps you are right, this venture might be more trouble than it's worth. Very well, you have convinced me. We will depart the island shortly and seek our weapons elsewhere."
Failed: "You dare to question me? That insult will be your last!"
Passed: Gives map to player.
Failed: Attacks player.
Leave this island now, or your life is forfeit. (Intimidate) Passed: "I can see that is no idle threat. Very well, we will depart the island once we have loaded the ship. No weapon is worth dying for, not even a weapon forged from Stalhrim. Here, give this map to the blacksmith. I have no further need of it."
Failed: "You dare threaten me? For that insolence, I will flay the flesh from your bones!"
Passed: Gives map to player.
Failed: Attacks player.
You want Stalhrim weapons, and I think I can help you get them.
Ancarion: "Here to make me an offer, then? Very well, what do you have in mind?"
Player: The smith said he'd teach me how to make Stalhrim weapons.
Ancarion: "And you will sell them to me. I suppose I'll have to give you the map first?"
Player: Yes, otherwise he'll teach me nothing. You can trust me. (Persuade)
Passed: "I might not trust you, but I will trust your greed. Very well, take the map. Return here with Stalhrim weapons and armor, and I will pay you a fair price for them. Tell the blacksmith whatever lie you will. We have no further need of him."
Failed: "You expect me to just hand you the map, so you can deliver it to the blacksmith and laugh at the foolish Thalmor you so easily outwitted? You have made a grave miscalculation, and now you will pay the price!"
Passed: New Quest
Failed: Attacks Player

Whatever result you gain from negotiation with Ancarion you will always end up with the Stalhrim Source map in hand.

Sell Stalhrim Armor and Weapons to AncarionEdit

His greetings:

"Back with more Stalhrim items, I trust?"
"Unless you have more Stalhrim weapons and armor for me, we have nothing to talk about."
"Ready to do more business?"

Speaking to him:

Shall we do some business?
"What do you have for me?"

His goodbyes:

"You have kept up your end of the bargain nicely. I admit, I wasn't sure that you would."
"I'll be here when you have more Stalhrim weapons and armor."
"There is more coin if you wish to claim it. You know what I want."
"Do not think we are now friends. I have tolerated you, nothing more."
"You are alive only at my pleasure. Do not forget that."
"I am done with you. Go on, get out of my sight."
"Nothing more to sell me?"
"I was hoping you'd have more."
"Is that all?"
