Detailed Walkthrough[edit]


Eydis Fire-Eye in the Balmora Guild of Fighters asks you to take care of two egg poachers in the local Shulk Egg Mine, just south of town, for its owner Dram Bero. The mine is located along the Odai River south-southwest of Balmora.

Acquiring Information on the Poachers[edit]

Chat with two egg miners outside the mine to learn the identities of the suspected poachers. Two former egg miners, Sevilo Othan and Daynila Valas, are the suspected poachers. Proceed into the mine and find the Queen's Lair (there are two entrances) where the Kwama Queen is located.

The Egg Poachers[edit]

The poachers will attack as soon as you enter the Queen's Lair. Once they have been defeated, you can return to Eydis Fire-Eye to complete your assignment. You will receive 100 gold and four Quality Restore Fatigue Potions.


  • After completing the quest, you can mention the egg poachers to Dram Bero, and his disposition will increase by five as long as it was less than 60.
  • The mine has a number of Kwama Foragers that are aggressive; take them out as necessary. The Kwama Workers, however, are passive and will not attack you.


  • You may encounter a bug where one of the poachers might disappear.
    • If so, open the console and enter one of the following commands to spawn the NPC at the current location:
PlaceAtPC "Daynila Valas",1,20,1
PlaceAtPC "Sevilo Othan",1,20,1

1 Sevilo Othan and Daynila Valas, former egg miners and local troublemakers, are poaching eggs from Shulk Egg Mine. Report back to Eydis when they're dead.
10 Eydis Fire-Eye tells me that the eggmine is located a short distance southwest of Balmora, in the bluffs west of the Odai River. The old suspension bridge across the Odai is just southeast of the mine entrance. I'm to follow the river south of Balmora until I see the bridge overhead.
