 Quick Walkthrough
- (Optional) Speak to Ashumanu Eraishah about Latest Rumors
- Find Umbra just over the hills from Suran.
- Defeat Umbra to claim the namesake sword
 Detailed Walkthrough
Go to the Suran Tradehouse, and ask Ashumanu Eraishah about latest rumors, and she will tell you about a dangerous-looking Orc she saw in the hills to the northeast of town. She'll warn you to steer clear, but who are you to listen to warnings?
 Finding Umbra
To find him, exit the Tradehouse and face the hills. Use a Levitate spell or potion to ascend them, or if your Acrobatics skill is high enough you could try climbing the pass on foot. There's also a pass around the mountains, but it's difficult to find, and a much longer walk. A way to make the walk more efficient is to find Umbra after you do the Inanius Egg Mine Quest , as he is just around the corner from there. You should see Umbra surrounded by a wall or pile of rocks.
 The weary Warrior
Speak with him to learn that the Orc is merely tired of life, having killed so many times, and wishes to die a warrior's death in combat. He will fight you if you grant Umbra his wish for a worthy death. Be warned though, Umbra is more powerful than your average opponent. He wears full Orcish armor and his sword packs a considerable punch, but he has no ranged weapons or spells. You might want to attack from a distance or have some healing magic prepared if you aren't well armored and don't care about the Honor aspect.
Once you kill him, you get to keep his equipment, including his sword, which goes by the same name as him. (When you ask his name, he says that his name doesn't matter, and tells you that, if it makes you feel better, you can call him after his sword.)
- You don't need to talk to Ashumanu to do this quest - you can find Umbra on your own and kill him. However, if you don't talk to her first, the quest may not complete properly. If the quest fails to complete even after you kill Umbra, then the following command can be used in the console to close the quest:
Journal MS_Umbra 60
- You can also receive this quest from Helviane Desele in Desele's House of Earthly Delights, although the journal entry will state that you spoke to Ashumanu.
- The Morrowind Patch Project adds another stage to the quest that only occurs if the player kills Umbra without talking to him or hearing about him. It is stage 70 and reads "I have killed an orc on a mountain near Suran."
 Quest Stages
These Codes can be used along with the
Journal Console Command and Quest ID given within the chart to update the quest to a certain point.
