Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Guar Hide Squeeze[edit]

Nileno Dorvayn at the Balmora Hlaalu Council Manor will ask you to convince alchemist Rolasa Oren in Vivec to buy imported guar hides from House Hlaalu, instead of House Redoran. Nileno's trying to improve House Hlaalu's share of the guar hide trade with the alchemists in Vivec.

Locate Rolasa Oren[edit]

Travel to Vivec; the quickest options from Balmora are either the Mages Guild Guide or via Silt Strider. The Guild Guide will place you in the Foreign Quarter, where you'll find Rolasa Oren. Ask around, and you'll find out that Rolasa works out of the Upper Waistworks in the Foreign Quarter, where she has a vendor's stall.

Rolasa Needs Some Convincing[edit]

Initially Rolasa will refuse your request, stating that imported guar hides are not that fresh, and that she's been buying from House Redoran for years. Raise her disposition to 80 or above, and she will agree. Several methods to raise her disposition can be found here.

A successful Intimidate check will also yield the result with any disposition.

Once Rolasa agrees, travel back to Balmora and report back to Nileno to complete the quest and receive 1000 gold, a portion of the future guar hide sales, for your efforts.


  • If Rolasa dies during the quest, Nileno Dorvayn's disposition towards you drops by ten points and you receive no faction reputation.
