Important NPCs

  • Eithne
  • Requires around 1200gp to gain 100 attitude, which results in an extra 35% discount.

 

Eithne the Trader Objectives

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

 

Eithne the Trader Walkthrough

At Cloisterwood, you meet 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 the Corpse Explosion skill book by combining any Pyromancy skill book with a Necromancy skill book. Once you have it in your inventory the quest will update. 

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

Once you've traded her the book, find her in the Stonegarden (around X:566 Y:133), in a crypt next to the one with the hatch where you fought the necromancer dog, to close out the quest.

Eithne's ghost will later appear below the magister barracks in Arx with some dialogue.  

 

Tips & Tricks

  • This quest requires the skill book "Corpse Explosion" specifically, which can be obtained by combining two non-source Necromancer and Pyromancer skill books. The source version "Mass corpse explosion" doesn't work.
  • The exact location after giving her the tome to close the quest is inside a sarcophagus at coordinates X:564 Y:130 Eithne's Rendezvous Point
  • 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.

      The maximum discount you can receive appears to be 52.4%, between bartering and attitude I got it up to a 71% discount but her prices where stuck at the 52% figure.

        This quest doesn't bugged in Definitive edition. Just talk with her and don't say you like blackpits. Do all chatting and quit talking. Craft corpse explosion and quest log will updated. Select first choice(tell her you have just the book she's looking for) and in the trade menu just select corpse explosion and don't want anything. Quest will updated again and eithne's location marked on the map. Go to the location and quest will finished Note: If you give her corpse explosion book, you can't trade with her again so buy anything you like before this.

          I’ve recently killed Eithne multiple times, as she left after receiving the Skillbook, and her corpse has disappeared every single time. Playing on PS4 DE, and the Exp for killing her is 7,500. I’m not sure whether this is more or less than when finding her corpse in the grave, but I decided to simply steal back all of my gold and then let her go — her corpse is otherwise unlootable, so killing her seems senseless unless finding her corpse in the graveyard yields no exp.

            I was confused when I went to the graveyard and saw not only her bones in the tomb, but a "living" version of her standing next to her bones. Tried talking to her for a couple of minutes only to find out its a glitch. This happened in the Definitive Edition (PS4).

                I tried this, and she just ignored me. Some dialogue cane up, but she kept walking

                    Bought EVERYTHING she had, completed the quest, attacked her once she started walking to the graveyard, got my money back.

                      Error in tip about recipe, you gotta use any NO-SOURCE CONSUMING skill books to end with a corpse explosion skill book

                        After you complete the quest, you can find her spirit in Arx, while doing "the last stand of the magisters" quest (in the room with the 3 geists).

                          "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?
