 Detailed Walkthrough
 Threads of the Webspinner
Depending on how much exploring of the game you've done, you may have come across a number of Sanguine items that increase various skills when worn. These items are actually several of the 27 created by the Daedra Lord Sanguine for the Morag Tong patron, Mephala. Twenty-six of the items can be found scattered across the island, and the last (Amulet of Sanguine Enterprise) is held by the Morag Tong Grandmaster, Eno Hlaalu in Vivec.
 The Sanguine Items
Speak with Grandmaster Eno Hlaalu about the items and you'll find that if you return all of the remaining 26, you will receive an elaborate reward from Mephala. You can return the items to Hlaalu at any time, though you must do so before you become Grandmaster and he disappears. Most of the Sanguine items that currently belong to someone are owned by a Dark Brotherhood agent or a Mehrunes Dagon worshipper, who will generally attack you on sight meaning you are safe from the law. Unfortunately, Eno will only ask you for two of the items directly so you'll have to find the rest for yourself...
|1||Amulet of Sanguine
|Mercantile||Eno Hlaalu||Vivec Arena||This is the one item you don't need to find.|
|2||Amulet of Sanguine
|Speechcraft||Shotherra||Thongar's Tradehouse in Khuul||Non-hostile, no clues given that she has it. You can taunt her to start the fight.|
|3||Amulet of Sanguine Nimble Armor||Light Armor||Severa Magia||Ald Sotha northeast of Vivec||Encountered during execute Severa Magia quest.|
|4||Ring of Sanguine
|5||Glove of Sanguine
|6||Belt of Sanguine
|Medium Armor||Relas Arothan||Assernerairan , found on the Underworks level of the St. Olms Canton in Vivec||Encountered during Execute Durus Marius quest.|
|7||Belt of Sanguine
|8||Belt of Sanguine
|Block||Movis Darys||Ald'ruhn Mages Guild||You can receive this belt as part of a quest to persuade him to join the Guild. If you can't persuade (or bribe) him, you'll have to kill him, so make him start the fight.|
|9||Belt of Sanguine
|Athletics||Hrordis||Halfway Tavern in Pelagiad||Eno Hlaalu will ask for it directly (one of two Sanguine items he will ask for), if you haven't already gotten it and handed it in to him. Under normal circumstances, you won't be able to persuade Hrordis or steal the belt - or even Taunt her into attacking you, as all she says is "goodbye" - so you are forced to kill her outright. However, if you're diseased, a vampire, or naked, you'll be able to talk to her. Mentioning Hrordis or Sanguine Fleetness will get you nowhere (she'll become annoyed and say goodbye), but mention the magic words Mehrunes Dagon (you'll need to be told about him first) and she'll attack.|
|10||Belt of Sanguine
|Long Blade||Durus Marius||Assernerairan, found on the Underworks level of St. Olms Canton in Vivec||Encountered during execute Durus Marius quest.|
|11||Belt of Sanguine
|12||Belt of Sanguine
|Spear||Gluronk gra-Shula||2nd floor of Sadrith Mora's Gateway Inn: North Wing.||Non-hostile. It's possible to catch her alone and murder her with no witnesses, or taunt her into attacking, though.|
|13||Belt of Sanguine Martial Craft||Armorer||Carecalmo||Ashalmimilkala on the west coast of Vvardenfell, west of Balmora, north of Hla Oad||Encountered during Ultimatum for Carecalmo quest.|
|14||Belt of Sanguine
|Blunt Weapon||Domba||Ald Daedroth shrine||On an island north of the Ahemmusa Camp, and southeast of Dagon Fel.|
|15||Belt of Sanguine
|HeavyArmor||Mindeli Saren||Yasammidan||On the far western coast of the mainland, northwest of Gnisis.|
|16||Glove of Sanguine
|Hand-to-hand||Guril Retheran||On the bottom level of the Flowers of Gold Cornerclub in the Redoran Canton||Encountered during Writ for Guril Retheran quest.|
|17||Glove of Sanguine
|Security||Inganar||Ularradallaku||Found inside the Ghostfence, roughly northeast of Ald'ruhn and just southwest of Dagoth Ur.|
|18||Ring of Sanguine
|Alteration||Talis Veran||Ebernanit||On the northern coast of the mainland, roughly in the center.|
|19||Ring of Sanguine
|Restoration||Gnaw Tooth||Ald Daedroth shrine||On an island north of the Ahemmusa Camp and southeast of Dagon Fel.|
|20||Ring of Sanguine
|Destruction||Llandrale Varam||Ald Sotha, northeast of Vivec.||Encountered during Execute Severa Magia quest.|
|21||Ring of Sanguine
|22||Ring of Sanguine
|23||Ring of Sanguine
|Illusion||Earmil||Assurnabitashpi, along the northern coast east of Khuul||There are two entrances and areas in this shrine, so if you can't find Earmil in one area, try the other.|
|24||Ring of Sanguine
|Alchemy||Anel Rethelas||Yasammidan on the far western coast of the mainland, northwest of Gnisis.||This is the other one of the two Sanguine items that Eno will explicitly ask for.|
|25||Ring of Sanguine
|Mysticism||Erundil||Indoranyon, on the eastern coast, north of Tel Aruhn.||Non-hostile, but can be taunted into fighting or simply murdered (there are no witnesses).|
|26||Shoes of Sanguine
|Acrobatics||Dro'Zaymar||Canal South-Three in the St. Delyn Canton.||Non-hostile, but since there are no witnesses, you are relatively safe to do as you please. It is possible to pickpocket the Sanguine item from this NPC (what a Khajiit is doing with shoes in the first place is anyone's guess, since they can't wear them.)|
|27||Shoes of Sanguine
|Sneak||Thovasi Alen||Assarnatamat||Found northeast of Balmora (southeast of Caldera), just inside the Ashlands region.|
Once you turn in all 27 Sanguine items to Eno Hlaalu, you are rewarded with Mephala's Skill, a cheap spell that grants Chameleon 50 pts and Fortify Attack 10 pts for 60 seconds for 30 magicka and never fails. In earlier versions (pre 1.2) of the program, this spell also included a Fortify Skill effect boosting Shortblade 10 pts, and was the only source for the Fortify Skill spell effect in the original game.
- Starting from version 1.2, the Fortify Short Blade component of the spell has been removed, meaning that there is no known source for the Fortify Skill spell effect. If you have any of the expansions, you can buy Fortify Skill spells from Nerile Andaren in the Mournhold Temple's Halls of Ministry or from Bronrod the Roarer in the Skaal Village on Solstheim.
- The two sanguine items he asks for directly, Belt of Sanguine Fleetness and Ring of Sanguine Sublime Wisdom, can only be returned once you've been given the special duty for them.
- The items are all clothing, and thus unaffected by Disintegrate Armor, so they will always be worn by the character unless they've got something better. Since you can't pickpocket equipped items, killing them is usually the only option. Many are hostile, and some are subjects of other quests, so you can safely kill them anyhow. But a few are peaceful, and some cannot even be taunted into attacking as they will not speak to you. In this case a Frenzy spell may be your best choice to deal with this quest without incurring a large bounty.
- Clicking the sanguine enterprise topic may incorrectly report that you've returned all 26 missing threads when you've only returned 25.
- You may not notice when the Mephala's Skill has been added. Be sure to check your spell list.
