Onmund's Request is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls V: SkyrimOnmund needs help retrieving an amulet that he received from his distant family.


To begin this quest, the Dragonborn must speak to Onmund after completing "Under Saarthal." He can be found in the Hall of Attainment. He will mention that he wants to retrieve an amulet, which was given to him by his family.

Onmund traded this amulet to one of the College's shadiest vendors, Enthir. He regrets this decision, and wants the amulet back as a reminder of his family, despite them not being very close.

Speak with Enthir, and he will decline to return the amulet; stating that all trades are final. However, with a high enough skill level in Speech, Enthir can be persuaded to return the amulet, thus updating the quest. Note, however, that the Speech skill needed to convince Enthir to give up the amulet is very high (90+), so it may not be possible to pass the Speech check at lower levels.

If the Dragonborn is unable to persuade him, after some argument he will agree to give the amulet back if the Dragonborn can retrieve the Grand Staff of Charming. This staff can be found inside a radiant location, which will be marked on the map.

After retrieving the staff for Enthir and returning the amulet to Onmund, the Dragonborn will be rewarded with Onmund's friendship. Completion of this quest also marks Onmund as a marriage candidate, as well as a follower.
