Tindoria, a High Elf artist, has hired me to acquire a list of rare art supplies for her next masterpiece.

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Talk to Tindoria at the docks of Lillandril.
  2. Find Haenamil and gather the first ingredient on the list.
  3. Travel to Brodran for the next exlusive ingredient.
  4. Help Brodran investigate the sabotage on his farm.
  5. Find the location of the last ingredient.
  6. Speak to farmer Ingarlas and decide what to do.
  7. Return to Lillandril.
  8. Speak to Tindoria's rival Vaerelel and decide which artist should get the ingredients.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]


  • If you choose to save the plant Ingarlas tells that the second bloom was stolen by Vaerelel and this is the only that remains. You are still able to complete the quest and Tindoria (if you stay by her side) still pays you. Although she will "dock your pay" for the missing part.

Quest Stages[edit]

The Perils of Art
Finishes Quest Journal Entry
The first ingredient on Tindoria's list can be obtained from an alchemist named Haenamil, who lives in a small hut in a remote area of Summerset. I should speak to her.
Objective: Talk to Haenamil
It's time to collect the next ingredient on Tindoria's list, a bug carapace. I can acquire one at Brodran's bug farm, located in southeastern Summerset. I should speak to him.
Objective: Talk to Brodran
Brodran refuses to give me a bug carapace because he believes Tindoria did something that dramatically lowered the hatchling numbers of his bugs. I should search for signs of sabotage on the farm.
Objective: Look for Signs of Sabotage
When I approached a barrel emitting a suspicious odor, I caught a High Elf pouring something into it. He seems alarmed. I should make him explain himself.
Objective: Talk to Coreyon
The fumes from the barrel I found are suppressing the desire of Brodran's bugs to mate, leading to his problems with egg numbers. The saboteur I found claims Vaerelel put him up to it. I should smash the barrel to end the malaise.
Objective: Destroy Fume Barrel
Vaerelel, not Tindoria, was responsible for sabotaging Brodran's farm by planting a barrel that created fumes which prevented his bugs from mating. I should inform Brodran of this.
Objective: Talk to Brodran
The last item on Tindoria's list is the rare plant aurialis, located near the sea on a remote hilltop. I should travel there.
Objective: Reach the Hilltop
When I arrived at the location of the aurialis, I encountered a High Elf demanding I speak to him. I should ask him where I can find an aurialis.
Objective: Talk to Ingarlas
The hilltop gardener claims there is no aurialis left, but he may be lying. I can search the garden for the plant or press him further and see if he'll tell me more.
Complete one: Search the Garden or Question Ingarlas
(If you choose to search the garden)

Turning over a basket revealed a hidden plant. I should examine the plant to see if it matches the description of aurialis in Tindoria's notes.

Objective: Examine the Plant
(If you choose to search the garden)

I have found an aurialis, but Ingarlas has begged me not to uproot it. I should speak to him to learn his reasons for asking me not to take the plant.

Objective: Talk to Ingarlas
Ingarlas claims this aurialis plant may be the last of its kind, and if I uproot it aurialis could be extinct forever. I can take the plant, as Tindoria requested, or leave it in hopes it will not go extinct.
Complete one: Take the Last Aurialis Plant or Leave the Last Aurialis Plant
(If you choose to take the last aurialis plant)

I've decided to take the aurialis for Tindoria's art supplies. I should pull the plant from the ground.

Objective: Take Plant
I have visited all locations on Tindoria's list. I should return to Tindoria and deliver the ingredients I've gathered.
Objective: Return to Tindoria
I met Vaerelel, Tindoria's rival, on the way to speak with her. I should speak to him.
Objective: Talk to Vaerelel
Vaerelel has given me a choice. I can sell him Tindoria's art supplies for significantly more than Tindoria would pay me, or remain loyal to my original employer and take the supplies to her. I should tell him my decision.
Complete one: Stay Loyal to Tindoria or Abandon Tindoria for Vaerelel
(If you chose to honor the agreement with Tindoria)

I chose to honor my original contract and deliver the art supplies to Tindoria. I should speak with her.

Objective: Deliver Reagents to Tindoria
(If you cut a deal with Vaerelel)


Objective: (?)
☑Finishes quest (If you chose to honor the agreement with Tindoria)

Tindoria is grateful to have the supplies she needs for her painting. I should speak to her about my payment.

Objective: Talk to Tindoria
☑Finishes quest (If you cut a deal with Vaerelel)

Vaerelel is pleased I agreed to sell him the supplies instead of Tindoria, and is prepared to pay me extra for what I've gathered. I should speak to him to collect my reward.

Objective: Talk to Vaerelel
