In this short quest, Auryen Morellus sends you on a quest to find the Staff of Indarys. The exact progression of this quest will vary depending on if you have Moonpath to Elsweyr installed.

Walkthrough - Moonpaths version

Retrieve the Staff of Indarys

In order to find Rakis, the following quests within Moonpath to Elsweyr have to be completed:

  • 'By the Light of the Moon'
  • 'Incursion'
  • 'Rebuilding the Past'

After 'Rebuilding the Past', you can travel to the Topal Sea Island where Rakis will be. Talk to him to receive the staff.

Walkthrough - Non Moonpaths version

Meet Rakis at the Guildhouse

Auryen will task you with meeting Rakis on the balcony of the Explorer's Society Guild House. Upon arrival the player will note that Rakis arrived on the Dev Aveza airship. He will then proceed to tell you about the plight of the Khajiit of Elsweyr and give you the Staff of Indarys.

Kill the Thalmor Assassin

During your conversation, Rakis is assassinated by a Thalmor Assassin, Ganllon Silinorin. He demands the Staff from you. With either decision it ends in a fight to the death.

You can also preemptively kill Ganlion by attacking him during the conversation, saving Rakis' life.

Retrieve the Staff of Indarys

Either take the Staff from the Corpse of Ganllon, if you handed it over or the quest automatically completes.

If you killed Ganlion before he could assassinate Rakis, the Khajiit will give you the staff and the airship to repay his life debt to you.
