Domalen is handing out leaflets

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Talk to Domalen and receive a leaflet.
  2. Take the leaflet to Aurane Frernis.
  3. Confront Domalen.
  4. Talk to either Aurane or Galuro Belan about the Slander.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]


You'll find Domalen on the Foreign Quarter Plaza handing out inflammatory leaflets claiming some nasty things about the alchemist Aurane Frernis, who has a store on the Lower Waistworks level. Take a leaflet and visit with Aurane who will say that it's merely slander, and will ask you to investigate the source of it.

Detective Work[edit]

Speak with Domalen and claim that the leaflet contents are lies to get him to admit that he was asked by Galuro Belan to distribute them. Return to Frernis with this information for your 100 gold reward. Alternatively, go and have a chat with Belan who owns an apothecary shop on the Waistworks level of Telvanni Canton. She should readily admit to being the source of the leaflets and offer you 100 gold to keep the entire matter a secret.


  • You can collect the 100 gold 'bribe' from Belan and then expose her anyway to Frernis for another 100 gold.
  • In order to get the Roland's Tear quest from Frernis, you must tell her the source of the leaflets.
