Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Speak to Captain Veleth in Raven Rock. He tells you that he's concerned about some Emberbrand Wine being stashed by his men. He'd like you to locate the stash and report back to him. He suggests you search near any abandoned buildings in the area, so locate the abandoned building in town, which is just past the blacksmith. Stay outside, and head southwest of the abandoned building to find eight jars of the wine in a barrel between the two destroyed houses nearby. Return to Captain Veleth for your reward.

  • The barrel containing the wine does not exist until you start the quest.
  • It is not necessary to take the wine to complete the quest - merely finding the barrel and seeing its contents is enough. If you do take it, you can keep it for your own use.
  • You won't be able to speak to Captain Veleth to turn in this quest if you've only just started the quest Served Cold, as he will only say, "I'm sorry. I've already said too much. Talk to Second Councilor Verano if you're willing to help us." Speaking to Verano to advance Served Cold will allow you to converse with Veleth and turn in this quest.
