Can you find the hidden treasure before the buyers lose their interest?
I was tipped off about treasures stashed in the secluded sewers. I don't have much time to secure the goods before they're moved, so I should act quickly on this lead.

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Talk to Fa'ren-dar and travel to the Secluded Sewers.
  2. Find the Cask of Summer Skooma and three Hidden Caches.
  3. (Optional) Complete the heist within 8 minutes.
  4. Return to Fa'ren-dar at the entrance.
  5. Return to the Thieves Den and talk to Fa'ren-dar.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Read the Heist Board next to Fa'ren-dar in the Thieves Den. There is a new message, reading:

"Have a lead on some buried treasure. No digging required. It's being stashed in the Secluded Sewers and we have a buyer interested in a re-appropriation. This one's not going to sit long, send a professional."

Speak to Fa'ren-dar to travel to the Secluded Sewers.

I'm really supposed to go rob a sewer?
"Oh yes, a place of untold treasure. If you like rats. Personally, I find them delicious.
Abah's Landing has many cracks to fall through, boss. Some choose to wriggle down them and stay beneath notice. Many times they have something worth hiding."
Point taken. Let's get to the heist.

When you have arrived to the sewers, enter the tunnels to start the timer and the objectives. You need to find three hidden caches and a treasure in order to complete the quest - it doesn't matter which order you gather these things or which route you take. Be aware of various traps on the floor, especially when you are close to the enemy NPCs.

When you have managed to gather all the items, head back to Fa'ren-dar. Beware of the elite enemy NPC that has spawned and patrols the exit area. The timer stops once you are close to the tunnel entrance where you began the quest. Speak to Fa'ren-dar to get teleported back to Thieves Den. Back in the Den, speak with him one more time to hear whether he has managed to sell the valuables and can reward you accordingly.


  • Advice for faster completion and some general information:
    • Use potions of Invisibility with Vanish and Speed effect to sneak faster and avoid detection.
    • Turn on quest objective pointers to see where the quest objects are located.
    • If you see a collectible object very close to the entrance/in an easily accessible location, leave it until last.
    • As soon as you complete all objectives, an elite enemy NPC will appear patrolling near the entrance area. Thus, you will need to plan additional time when heading back to Fa'ren-dar.
    • Dying will not affect the timer.
    • Being detected by the NPCs in the sewers reduces the timer greatly — by one minute — risking the bonus objective.
