Morrowind - Main Quest: Travel to Vivec
19 February 2011
||Andrano Ancestral Vault
||Balmora, Vivec Foreign Quarter, Vivec St. Olms, Vivec Temple
||3, Caius won't speak to you before this
- Return to Caius in Balmora for your orders.
- Meet with Huleeya in the Cornerclub, Vivec Foreign Quarter.
- Calm the locals and escort her to Jobasha's Bookshop and receive her notes.
- Meet with Addhiranirr in the Underworks of St. Olms canton in Vivec.
- Find and tell the excise agent Duvianus Platorius that Addhiranirr has left Vivec.
- Receive the notes from Addhiranirr.
- Meet with Merha Milo in the Temple Library of Vivec.
- Steal or buy the book Progress of Truth.
- Return to Caius in Balmora.
Continue on with the Ashlander Informant portion of the main quest
or return to the Main Quest page.
- Orders from Caius
- After the last errand, Caius tells you to train for a while and come back to him (you must be Level 3
or higher for this part of the main quest). Again, he sends you on a fact-finding mission, this time
to Vivec. There are three people you must track down: Addhiranirr (Khajiit Thieves Guild member, St. Olms),
Huleeya (Argonian Morag Tong member, Foreign Quarter, Black Shalk Cornerclub), and Mehra Milo (Temple Priestess,
Hall of Wisdom, Temple compound). Caius is once again looking for any Sixth House or Nerevarine information
and he gives you 200 gold to help with expenses. The quickest way to Vivec is to take a Silt Strider, but
feel free to take the scenic route.
- Huleeya in the Foreign Quarter is easily visited first and can be found in the Cornerclub in the
Lower Waistworks. Unfortunately, Huleeya seems to be having problems with the locals whom you'll have
to talk to first. Have a chat with the Dunmer Ethys Savil (or his 2 friends) and presuade him to leave the Argonian alone.
Raising his disposition to you a bit will work, or you can just kill him outright. If you try to leave
without talking to one of the thugs, they will attack (you will have to protect Huleeya). Once you've solved
this, Huleeye will let you escort him to his friend's bookshop. Jobasha's Rare Books is on the same
level as the Cornerclub in the Foreign Quarter Lower Waistworks, just at the opposite side. Make sure
Huleeya follows you correctly as often NPCs become lost or become stuck. Once inside the bookstore, he
will give you some notes to take to Caius. Super spoiler: Pick up the book Progress of Truth here if you
want as you will be needing it shortly.
NOTE: If you are the grandmaster in the Morag Tong, you might not be able to get Huleeya to give you the information.
If you are playing on the PC version you can using the following console commands to get around this bug:
Player->AddItem, "bk_A1_7_HuleeyaInformant", 1
Journal, "A1_7HuleeyaInformant", 50
- Addhiranirr is the next closest in the St. Olms canton, South and East of the Foreign Quarter (past the Redoran
and next to St. Delyn). It turns out Addhiranirr is difficult to find as almost no one in St. Olms knows where
he is. With enough exploration and questions, you do eventually find him all alone in the Underworks for the
reason that a Census and Excise agent is looking for her. In order to get anything out of him, the agent
must be taken care of. The agent in mention is Duvianus Platorius and can be found in St. Olms Waistworks.
As usual, you can either kill him or presuade him that Addhiranirr has gone elsewhere. Note that if you happen
to accidently tell him where Addhiranirr is, you can still get the information required by Caius by raising
Addhiranirr's disposition until he will talk to you. Anyways, once the agent is out of the way, Addhiranirr will
let you know that the Sixth House is into smuggling, but no one knows what as they are being very secretive
- Mehra Milo
- Moving onto the last contact, Mehra Milo in the Library of the Temple, Halls of Wisdom at the South end of Vivec.
Once you find her, and follow her to the back of the library for secrecy, she lets you know what she has
on the Sixth House Cult, suggesting that you get a copy of the book Progress of Truth for Caius. Although
the Library has a book, it is under guard, though she suggests trying the local bookshops, even though the
book is official banned by the Temple. The copy in the Library is the tall book on top of the bookshelf in
the South West corner. Alternatively, you can just buy a copy from Jobasha (150 gold) in the Lower Waistworks of the
Foreign Quarter (remember, we were just there a while ago). Other copies can be found at:
Alternatively, you can use the console cheat: player->additem "bk_progressoftruth",1 to give yourself
the book if you are stuck.
- Tel Uvirith, Arelas' House
- Vivec, Hall of Justice Secret Library
- Vivec, Jobasha's Rare Books
- Vivec, Library of Vivec
- Vivec, Telvanni Tower
- Return to Caius
- Returning to Caius with the information, he promotes you to Journeyman and suggests you take some more time to
train and go some other guild work to keep your cover up. Come back for the next part of the quest in a few
- Quest Bug
- If you neglect to "lie" to the tax collector then you'll miss one entry in your journal
for Caius and you can never complete the quest (or the game), and there's no going back.
Someone has found the console command to bypass this if Caius gives you problems by not acknowledging that
you've completed the quest when you really have:
And it works! I think the only thing you miss then is the 200 gold given to you by Caius after the mission,
but you DO end up keeping the book you should've aquired, and at a value of 150, if there's a merchant
who likes you you can usually recover most of your expenses from the trip to Vivec.
