Elmus longs for the taste of Thirsk mead

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Talk to Elmus in Bujold's Retreat before you decide to attack the Nords or the Rieklings.
  2. Go to the Thirsk Mead Hall and retrieve one bottle of Ashfire Mead.
  3. Head back to Elmus for your reward.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Find Elmus at Bujold's Retreat and talk to him. He requests that you bring him a bottle of Ashfire Mead from the Thirsk Mead Hall, which has been taken over by rieklings. After that, travel over to the mead hall. If you have never visited it before, you will meet a riekling outside, trying to lead you to his tribe's chief. Just head inside, take at least one bottle of Ashfire Mead, and return to Elmus. Give him the mead and receive your reward.


Levels Reward
1–9 400
10–19 600
20–29 800
30–39 1,000
40+ 1,200


  • If Thirsk is reclaimed for the Nords during Retaking Thirsk or if Elmus dies, this quest fails.
  • Any Ashfire Mead will do; the bottle you give Elmus does not need to be from Thirsk.

  • The following empty quest stages were omitted from the table: 0, 100, 210.
  • Any text displayed in angle brackets (e.g., <Alias=LocationHold>) is dynamically set by the Radiant Quest system, and will be filled in with the appropriate word(s) when seen in game.
  • Not all Journal Entries may appear in your journal; which entries appear and which entries do not depends on the manner in which the quest is done.
  • Stages are not always in order of progress. This is usually the case with quests that have multiple possible outcomes or quests where certain tasks may be done in any order. Some stages may therefore repeat objectives seen in other stages.
  • If an entry is marked as "Finishes Quest" it means the quest disappears from the Active Quest list, but you may still receive new entries for that quest.
  • On the PC, it is possible to use the console to advance through the quest by entering setstage DLC2ThirskFFElmus stage, where stage is the number of the stage you wish to complete. It is not possible to un-complete (i.e. go back) quest stages, but it is possible to clear all stages of the quest using resetquest DLC2ThirskFFElmus.
