- Speak to Hrundi at the Fighter's Guild in Wolverine Hall for your orders.
- Go to Tel Naga Great Hall, Upper Tower in town and find the outlaw Engaer.
- Kill him.
- Return to Hrundi.
Hrundi in the Wolverine Hall Fighter's Guild asks you to kill Engaer, an outlaw in Tel Naga in Sadrith Mora. Hrundi suggests to avoid the guards as he doesn't need further trouble with the Telvanni.
Tel Naga Great Hall is just north of Wolverine Hall. There are two entrances into the Upper Tower, one high up from outside and one from inside the Lower Tower. You will need some form of levitation to reach either entrance. Engaer can be found in the northwest room of three trapped and locked (20) doors in the Upper Tower. The area is guarded by a single guard who is very close by, doesn't wander and stares you down continuously. You can taunt the guard into attacking if your sneak skill isn't high enough to untrap and unlock the door(s) undetected. Several residents hold a Key to Tel Naga which will open this door.
Once you get in the room you should be able to finish Engaer off without interruptions. The easiest way is to taunt him into attacking. If you use a Chameleon spell you should be able to sneak behind him and attack without alerting the entire tower; a high level of Sneak can be used to similar effect, especially if you kill him in a single blow. A low-effort exploit that will ensure his demise (without much risking your own) is simply to attack once to get him to chase you, then run and jump over the hole leading to the lower floors of the tower. NPCs' AI is too rudimentary for them to jump or cast Levitate/Slowfall, so he'll simply run right in and fall to his death.
Return to Hrundi for your 1,000 gold reward (half of the bounty).
- Since Engaer is a member of House Telvanni, you may find yourself kicked out of the faction because of this quest if you are also a member. To avoid this, you should either Taunt or cast Frenzy on him and allow him to strike the first blow before attacking him.
- The remaining two trapped and locked doors are storage rooms for armor and alchemy supplies. It may be worth your while to investigate these rooms as well; several armor pieces, magical weapons and a full set of Master quality alchemy tools are yours for the taking.
- A Divine Intervention spell or scroll will get you back quickly to Wolverine Hall.
- Roleplay: If the bounty would bother your conscience (and some other Fighters Guild quests provide for this option), be aware that Engaer is not just a mercenary but a Morag Tong assassin, making him two kinds of killer-for-hire at once.
These codes can be used along with the
