Dalea Gronholm says, "Silica, it is good to see you again. I have recovered a bit from the last time we spoke. Remember the vessel you got for me? I was able to get it to Meregrota and she has enchanted it properly. It will be perfect for holding the essences that [Elizabeth so wants]."
Dalea Gronholm says, "Elizabeth has grown a little impatient with me, although she knows I've been sick and I'm still recovering. The situation over on the mainland grows worse, and she is desperate to learn some new enchantments to aid in the fight againsta Hibernia and Albion. Her one enchantment needs the essences of different undead spirits. she's asked a few others to help her over around Mularn, but [I am to gather] the essences here."
Dalea Gronholm says, "Since I am not well enough to handle this, it falls upon you. You must take this vessel with you and obtain the essences of three psylings. Elizabeth believes there is something in their essence that will help our brave forces defeat the armies of Albion and Hibernia. Go now and defeat three Pyslings. As you defeat each one its essence will fill the vessel. Do not lose the vessel for then all our hard work will be for naught! If it should become lost, return to me and we will work out a solution."

[Return empty-handed to Dalea]
Dalea Gronholm says, "So, you have lost the vessel, after I warned you not to! Do not fret, Silica, I knew that Pyserlian might cause trouble. While he may not be the strongest pyslings, he is cunning and fearless, and the other pyslings fear him. I am afraid that [without a special charm] to weaken Pyserlian, you will not be able to get the vessel back and trap his essence."
Dalea Gronholm says, "When I went to Meregrota, she and I spoke of th
[ -- Missing quest text -- Dalea tells you to go kill a Morvalt Ungdom and collect a finger bone, then take it to Meregrota Solvor who can place an enchantment on it that will help defeat Pyserlian.]]
Meregrota Solvor says, "Dalea Gronholm said that you may be coming to me for a way to weaken Pyserlian. Give me the morvalt finger bone and I shall enchant it."
Meregrota Solvor says, "There, the bone is enchanted. Do not look surprised that it took so little time. The spell is quick and fairly simple, but it will cancel the spell that Pyserlian has cast around the vessel. You must wear the bone around your neck to cancel Pyserlian's spell. If you do not wear the bone, Pyserlian will not give you back the vessel and Dalea and Elizabeth will both be disappointed. Go now and seek out Pyserlian and obtain the vessel for Dalea! When you have defeated Pyserlian, the charm will disappear for its magic will be used up."
You receive morvalt finger bone charm from Meregrota Solvor!
