[edit] Detailed Walkthrough

[edit] Illegal Trade

After completing the Helping Hand quest, you can ask Wujeeta where she obtained her skooma. She is not forthcoming with the details, however you can pass a speech check to get her to tell you the truth.

Option Dialogue Reaction
I think you owe me one. (Persuade) Passed: Okay, okay, I'll tell you.
Failed: It's not worth dying over.
Passed: Reveal the supplier
Failed: Nothing
Here, does this help? (Bribe) Passed: Okay, okay, I'll tell you.
Failed: It's got nothing to do with the coin... this is my life we're talking about.
Passed: Reveal the supplier
Failed: Nothing
And who says I won't? (Intimidate) Passed: Okay, okay, I'll tell you.
Failed: You can't threaten me any worse than they have!
Passed: Reveal the supplier
Failed: Nothing
Okay, never mind. Thank you. Nothing

At last, she will reveal her supplier as Sarthis Idren and his base as Riften Warehouse. She explains that the warehouse is always locked and that only the jarl has a key.

The next step is to report the presence of a skooma dealer to the jarl. She will explain that the dealer has informants in the town guard because he disappears every time they raid the warehouse. She thinks that as an outsider you may be able to surprise Sarthis in the warehouse, and "'convince' him to close down his operation". If you accept the mission, she will give you the Riften Warehouse Key to unlock the warehouse.

[edit] The Raid

The warehouse is located at the southern end of Riften's docks. Orini Dral is patrolling the warehouse, and will immediately spot you, Sarthis is in the basement and will, when Orini spots you, come rushing upstairs to aid his bodyguard. Orini is a modest opponent, but Sarthis can prove a difficult opponent to defeat.

When they are dead, loot Sarthis's body for his key. Descend the stairs in the northeastern corner, turn around and use the key to unlock the door. On the shelves there are five bowls of moon sugar and six bottles of skooma. On the table there is another bowl of moon sugar and two bottles of skooma. Inside Sarthis's satchel there is a note with information regarding Sarthis's sources. Steal the note and read it, and head to the jarl.

[edit] It's Not Over Yet

Read the letter to discover the location of Sarthis's sources. Return to the jarl with the evidence and news of Sarthis's demise. She will be grateful, saying, "It's nice to receive good news for a change", but will ask you to continue the crusade, which starts the next quest.

[edit] Notes

  • If Wujeeta dies before you report the skooma dealer to the jarl, you will fail the quest.
  • If Sarthis is killed by anyone other than you, you will fail the quest. The key and the note can still be obtained, but no relevant dialogue option will be available from the jarl to proceed.
  • This is the second of three required quests that are required to unlock the option to become Thane of the Rift for Laila Law-Giver. There are additional requirements noted on that quests page.
  • Wujeeta is not essential, and if she dies before this quest and the next are complete, you will never be able to become Thane of the Rift if you side with the Stormcloaks.
  • The penultimate objective, "Recover skooma source information", will only register as completed if you read the note, unusual when compared to other objectives of this nature in which you simply must take it.

[edit] Bugs

  • Even though you were given a key by the jarl, and it is occupied by enemies, you will be considered to be trespassing in the warehouse. If you have a follower they will react as such.
    • PC Only This bug is fixed by version 1.3.2 of the Unofficial Skyrim Patch.
    • If your follower insists on reporting you for stealing the note, you will need to exit the warehouse to ask them to wait.
