Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Meet Din on the road north of Gnisis.
  2. Cast Cure Common Disease on him or escort him to Gnisis Temple.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

You can find the rambling Din north of Gnisis, wearing some Imperial Legion armor. Unfortunately, conversation with Din is difficult as you will quickly discover. Choose the dialogue options of catch some slaughterfish followed by muddled to receive the option to cure him. Curing Din requires some form of Cure Common Disease, though if you don't have any handy you can get Din to follow you to the healer at the Gnisis Temple. If you do make the journey (or cure him with magic) you'll receive a small gold reward as well as a faction increase with the Imperial Legion.

Index Finishes Quest Journal Entry
10 While traveling along the coast near Gnisis, I ran into a man who seemed very agitated, perhaps a bit mad.
20 This man, Din, seems to be suffering from some sort of disease, perhaps caused by a recent slaughterfish bite he received.
30 Din clearly needs to be rid of this disease, which seems to be causing violent outbursts and some dementia. He has mentioned the healer Mehra Drora in Gnisis. Perhaps she can help him.
40 Din has agreed to try and follow me to Gnisis. It's good I came along. These violent outbursts he's having would most certainly have gotten him killed had he attempted to make the journey alone.
46 I have decided to try and use my magical abilities to cure Din of his dementia.
47 Din has agreed to try and follow me to Gnisis. It's good I came along. These violent outbursts he's having would most certainly have gotten him killed had he attempted to make the journey alone.
48 I've decided to take my leave of the madman Din. Whatever disease he has, I don't want to catch it.
49 I have been able to use my magical abilities to rid Din of the disease that was causing his madness.
50 I have successfully led Din to Mehra Drora, the healer in Gnisis.
60 ☑Finishes quest Din was very grateful for my help. As it turns out, he is a member of the Legion, and he has promised to let them know about my willingness to help him out. He also offered the little gold he had as payment.
70 ☑Finishes quest Din met his end on the road to Gnisis. Although he seemed mad, I fear it was a disease that caused this, and it probably could have been cured.
