Elynea needs some rare ingredients.

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

After completing the quest Healing a House, speak to Elynea Mothren in the Tel Mithryn Apothecary and she'll request that you bring her a particular rare alchemy ingredient.

The ingredient she requests can be one of the following: briar heart, daedra heart, giant's toe, hagraven claw, vampire dust, or void salts. Once you have collected the ingredient, return to Elynea for your reward.

Elynea's Dialogue[edit]

Ingredient Dialogue before Dialogue after Reward
Daedra Heart Well, I could use a daedra heart. Can't grow that in my garden. It's a bit dried up, but it will do. Here. 350 gold
Giant's Toe Hmm. I'm running out of giant toes. I'll pay extra for one. A bit ripe, isn't it? Here. Take this. 100 gold
Hagraven Claw As a matter of fact, I need a hagraven claw. I'll pay extra if you find one. Nasty bitches, aren't they? Here's your fee. 100 gold
Vampire Dust How about some vampire dust? Bring me some of that and I'll pay handsomely. Not bad for an amateur? Take this. 100 gold
Briar Heart You got a briarheart? That's what I really need. Neloth keeps taking all of mine. You could have cleaned it. It's still bloody. 100 gold
Void Salts You find some void salts and you bring them to me. I'll beat anyone else's price. Hmm. Better than average quality. I'll take it. 200 gold


  • If you already have the ingredient in your inventory when Elynea gives you the quest, you can immediately give it to her and complete the quest without exiting dialogue.
