The subject of this article or section is part of Hallow's End, a seasonal event that lasts two weeks. Once the event has run its course, this will no longer be available until next year, but there are no guarantees.

For the Alliance version of this quest, see Quest:Fencing the Goods (Alliance).

Objectives Edit

Follow the spiders to their destination[54.2, 73.6]
and question the man you find there.
  • Follow Thief's Trail

Description Edit

A quick search of the cabin reveals no evidence of the killer's identity or motives. The crate you were sent to retrieve has vanished.

As you turn to leave the cabin, you notice something small moving underfoot. A trail of spiders crawls out from under the slain courier's bed. Where could they be heading?


Keep your voice down and don't let word of this get out or I'm finished as an auctioneer!

Rewards Edit

You will receive:


Upon questioning Auctioneer Drezmit, he will offer the following before sending you further along the quest chain:

We don't deal with those kinds of people here! This auction house only lists honestly-acquired merchandise.
Listen, if you can be discreet about it, there are a bunch of places in this town guys like me aren't supposed to know about.
I'm willing to help you out, but you have to promise not to mention this to anyone else. Even talking about this kind of thing can hurt my reputation!



The trail of spiders is evidently a reference to Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
