Scrape the bottom of the barrel for Fargoth

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Take the Engraved Ring of Healing from the barrel outside the inner Census and Excise office building (you will be unable to progress any further in the game until you do this).
  2. Talk to Fargoth about his ring.
  3. Return the ring to Fargoth.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Look What I've Found[edit]

During character creation, after exiting the first Census and Excise building and upon activating the door to the next building, you will be instructed to Check the barrel to your left, and get the ring inside. You must possess the Engraved Ring of Healing before you are allowed to proceed to the captain's office.

Imperial Shakedown[edit]

After you finish in the Census office and exit to Seyda Neen, you should be able to find a blond Wood Elf man by the name of Fargoth wandering around just outside. Speak with him about his ring, and he'll share his experiences with the Imperial Guards in town, and his belief that they have taken his ring.

Return and Reward[edit]

You can tell Fargoth that you found his ring, or feign ignorance on the subject. If you tell him that you found it, you are given the option to give it to him or keep it. Giving him the ring will result in an improved disposition with Fargoth. In addition, Fargoth will put in a good word with Arrille, at the local tradehouse, which means a higher disposition and an increased bargaining ability for goods and services with Arrille when you first start, a definite advantage for early characters.


  • While you may be tempted to keep the ring, there is an opportunity to get it back in a subsequent quest, Fargoth's Hiding Place. Use this opportunity to return the ring to increase your bargaining ability with Arrille in order to raise much needed funds before you leave Seyda Neen.
