Not to be confused with A Return To Your Roots.
Seeking Your Roots is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Harvesting a Nirnroot will begin this quest.

WalkthroughEdit

Ask any alchemist in any city and they will direct the Hero to Sinderion, an alchemist in Skingrad. Mostly he hangs out in the basement of the West Weald Inn. He's looking for a rare root known as Nirnroot. Bring him 10 Nirnroots and he'll make you a potion called the Elixir of Exploration, which is very useful for exploring dungeons.

After delivering Sinderion 10 Nirnroots he will ask for 20 more with the promise of a stronger version of the potion if you do. After delivering 20, he will ask for 30 more to make the strong version of the elixir, and after delivering 30, he will ask for 40 more to make the grand concoction of the elixir.

When all the Nirnroots needed are delivered to make the potions, he will buy any other Nirnroots gathered, but only 10 at a time.

JournalEdit

Journal Entry
  • Update: Upon receiving the quest:

I've recovered a sprig of Nirnroot. A plant ingredient this unusual must have value. Perhaps I should bring it to an alchemist and find out a little about it. An alchemist can be found in almost every city in Cyrodiil.

  • Update: After speaking to an alchemist:

The alchemist I've spoken to has referred me to Sinderion in Skingrad. Apparently he specializes in the more botanical aspects of alchemy. I should bring the Nirnroot to him.

  • Update: After seeking out Sinderion:

Sinderion, an alchemist in Skingrad is looking for a rare root known as Nirnroot. According to his research, this rare root can be a powerful ingredient in the creation of a special potion known as the Elixir of Exploration. Because of this, Sinderion has tasked me to find 10 samples of this mystical plant. He indicated a part of the Great Forest to the northeast called Shadeleaf Copse as a good starting point.

  • Update: After reaching Shadeleaf Copse:

I have reached The Shadeleaf Copse. I can now begin my search for the Nirnroot.

  • Update: After collecting 10 samples of Nirnroot:

I've now found a total of 10 Nirnroot. I should return to Sinderion in Skingrad so he can begin creating an Elixir of Exploration from them.

  • Update: After giving the Nirnroot to Sinderion:

I've given Sinderion the first 10 samples of Nirnroot. He told me if I wish to have a moderate version of the Elixir of Exploration made, he'd need 20 more samples.

  • Update: After collecting 20 samples of Nirnroot:

I've given Sinderion 20 samples of Nirnroot. He told me if I wish to have a strong version of the Elixir of Exploration made, he'd need 30 more samples.

  • Update: After collecting 30 samples of Nirnroot:

I've found 30 more of the Nirnroot. I should return to Sinderion in Skingrad so he can begin creating a strong version of the Elixir of Exploration from them.

  • Update: After collecting 40 samples of Nirnroot:

I've found 40 more samples of Nirnroot. I should return to Sinderion in Skingrad so he can begin creating a grand version of the Elixir of Exploration from them.

  • Update: After giving the 40 Nirnroot to Sinderion:

Sinderion informed me that he's exhausted his research regarding the Elixir of Exploration. However, he mentioned that he'd be glad to pay for any more samples of Nirnroot that I can find so he can keep himself supplied with the ingredient. Hopefully, I will come across more in my travels to bring to him.
