The tame nix-hound at Revus Sarvani's camp

Quick WalkthroughEdit

  1. Read the notice of sale.
  2. Buy a nix-hound from Revus Sarvani or Geldis Sadri.

Detailed WalkthroughEdit

Once you've installed the Nix-Hound Creation, you will receive this quest and a notice of sale, which directs you to talk to Revus Sarvani at his camp east of Tel Mithryn on Solstheim. Revus is not an essential NPC, so it is possible to kill him prior to installing this Creation. If this occurs, you will instead receive a different notice directing you to Geldis Sadri at The Retching Netch in Raven Rock.

Travel to Solstheim and locate the specified NPC. Offer to purchase the nix-hound for 400 gold and you will be given a spell tome that teaches you a spell to teleport the nix-hound to you. You will be directed to introduce yourself to the nearby nix-hound to complete the quest. It will now serve as an animal follower, with the added ability to carry items, provide you with random ingredients, or be sent to wait at a specific city or player house.


  • The Nix-Hound Creation also adds enemy nix-hounds to the wilds of Solstheim.
  • The pet nix-hound behaves identically to the mudcrab pet added by the Dwarven Armored Mudcrab Creation.
