- Speak to Deldrise Andoren in the Andoren Manor.
- Search for her husband around The Winged Guar in the evening.
- Follow him to the back of the Craftmen's Hall.
- Either report this to his wife or kill his girlfriend and report that to his wife.
Deldrise Andoren in the Andoren Manor in the Godsreach District will ask you to search for her missing husband, Taren Andoren. He has recently been going out late at night and not returning until early in the morning, if at all. Deldrise fears that he may be cheating on her and wants you to check it out. She says that her husband sometimes hangs around The Winged Guar and wants you to try following him so he doesn't suspect anything.
Wait until evening, and start looking around The Winged Guar for Taren Andoren. He can be found at several locations, including at the top of the stairs leading to the Craftsmen's Hall at around 7 pm (you receive a journal entry when you spot him). He will start sneaking around to the back of the Craftmen's Hall where he'll meet up with a woman, Velyna Seran. You receive another journal entry at this point to report back to his wife. If you get too close to Taren, he might spot you and ruin the quest (you receive a warning if you get too close to him).
Report what you have seen to Deldrise, and you will receive 250 gold, but you have to be a bit more intrusive to get the 1,000 gold. Don't report back to the wife just yet. Instead speak with the couple. Talking with the husband gets an immediate dialogue termination, but talking to the girlfriend makes her attack you with a dagger (the husband will attack you too, but only with fists). If you kill them both, the wife will be very upset, and she won't give you a reward. If you kill just the girlfriend and then run away to report to Deldrise Andoren, she will be very happy and give you 1,000 gold.
- If you kill Taren or get caught by him, Deldrise's disposition drops by 20 points. Each time you greet her after this, her disposition drops by a further ten or 20 points, depending on whether you got caught or killed him respectively.
