Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Girith's Stolen Hides[edit]

You'll find Athanden Girith west of the Ahemmusa Camp along a path and discover that he has been robbed by two Ashlanders. Girith tells you that his friend, Berwen, in Tel Mora will reward you greatly if you can recover his guar hides for him.

Track down the culprits[edit]

Head back to the Ahemmusa Camp and ask around about the attack to identify the thieves as Emul-Ran and Kashtes Ilabael found with a pack guar in a camp to the south, near the water. The pair will readily admit to the theft so feel free to dispose of them at your pleasure. Be sure to take the 10 Girith's Guar Hide from Emul-Ran's body (note that ordinary guar hides will not do). Return the hides to Girith who will only thank you.

Claim your reward[edit]

To receive your reward, trek over to Berwen's shop in Tel Mora for three Fortify Health Potions and a Ring of Hornhand (damages fatigue when used).

Bugs[edit]

  • If you kill the thieves and acquire the guar hides before first speaking to Girith, you will be unable to obtain the quest from him and cannot receive a reward.

Index Finishes Quest Journal Entry
10 The trader Athanden Girith claims he has been attacked by two Ashlanders, who robbed him and left him for dead.
20 Girith claims that the Ashlanders have stolen his shipment of guar hides, and he would like my help in getting them back. If I can retrieve the stolen hides, his friend Berwen in Tel Mora will reward me well.
25 Girith has described the Ashlanders that attacked him: "They looked kind of like a normal dark elf, but wild. They wore animal skins and had tattoos. And they had odd hair." This may not narrow down my search as much as I had hoped.
30 I have agreed to try and hunt down the missing guar hides for Athanden Girith. It will be best to check with the local Ashlanders first.
40 ☑Finishes quest I've decided not to get involved in this dispute. I have no desire to run afoul of the Ashlanders.
60 I've spoken to Ashlanders about the missing guar hides. They tell me that the two I am searching for are named Emul-Ran and Ilabael. They are outcasts, belonging to no Ashlander tribe. They can apparently be found camped south of the Ahemmusa camp, along the shore.
70 I have found Emul-Ran and Ilabael. They are indeed the thieves who took Girith's hides, and were too proud to say otherwise.
100 I have returned the guar hides to Athanden Girith. He was happy to get them back, and also to hear that the Ashlanders were dead. Girith promises me that I will be rewarded well if I visit his friend Berwen in Tel Mora.
102 I have returned the guar hides to Athanden Girith. He was happy to get them back, but seemed a little disappointed that the Ashlanders weren't dead. Girith promises me that I will be rewarded well if I visit his friend Berwen in Tel Mora.
105 I have returned the guar hides to Athanden Girith. He was happy to get them back, and also to hear that at least one of the Ashlanders was dead. Girith promises me that I will be rewarded well if I visit his friend Berwen in Tel Mora.
110 ☑Finishes quest I mentioned Athanden Girith's name to Berwen in Tel Mora. She immediately recognized my name, and what I had done for her friend. She was, as Girith had promised, more than generous. She gave me three healing potions and a ring she claims contains powerful magics.
