Eithne the Trader Objectives

  1. Talk to Eithne
  2. Give her Corpse Explosion skill book

Eithne the Trader Walkthrough

At Cloisterwood, you met an undead trader called Eithne. (Around X:168 Y:223) She is searching for a particular tome - a volume that teaches the reader how to make corpses explode. You can create this tome by combining any Pyromancy skill book with a Necromancy skill book, the tome is called "Corpse Explosion", once you have it in your inventory the quest will update. 

(Note, don't say you like black rings or she will attack you. )

You can acquire the right skill book by combining ANY necro and pyro skill books.

Once you've traded her the book, find her in the graveyard (around X:566 Y:133), a few steps east of where you fought the necromancer dog, to close out the quest.

Eithnes ghost will later appear below the magister barracks in Arx with some dialogue.  

Tips & Tricks

  • The exact location after giving her the tome to close the quest is inside a sarcophagus at coordinates X:566 Y:133
  • There is a Persuasion check for Intelligence, Memory, or Constitution.
  • If you sell her the book she is looking for you receive 13450 party Experience.

      "Since she's trader with loads of books and gold, there's a way how to get them all along with both 1) exp for giving her the books, 2) exp for killing her and also, close the quest.

      1. Respec all your character to Thievery 3 or more.
      2. Pickpocket her with all character (4 times).
      3. Give her what she needs (a Corpse Explosion book). Get around 14k exp.
      4. She'll walk away, going to the graveyard. Attack and kill her. Get another 14k exp.
      5. Quest is closed.

      She wanted to be free of her undead status anyway. So you kinda helped her by killing her instead she doing it herself at the graveyard."

      This is good, but there's a better step to improve this to save a bit of time. Instead of respecing, just have one character with thievery and make sure you got a good amount of gold. At this point I had 50k gold, I placed all the gold into a coin purse or a backpack or any FORM of bag. Gave her the bag, and bought everything from her in exchange for the gold. my rogue pickpocketed her, took the bag of gold which is only worth 1kg. The coins won't be marked as stolen - if it does just stack it with a NON-stolen coin to remove the tag. The backpack/coinpurse will still be marked stolen but it won't matter - if it bugs you just throw it away, plenty of coin purses lying around.

        It would be nice that she hand over her gold, since she's already going to kill herself! Pfft, can't take it with her!

            When I combine a necromancer and pyro book, I end up with Mass Corpse Explosion instead. I'm guessing the levels of the skill books matter?

                  If you want to close out this quest you can find her in the graveyard east of where you fought the necromancer dog.

                    Note that you need corpse explosion, not mass corpse explosion. I was wondering the entire time why the latter didn't work before I realize that there's a single target version of the spell.
