Nirnroot guide
Version 1.0

Nirnroot Locations.

Intro:
This is walkthrough is about the Nirnroot. You can find Nirnroots everywhere
they are mainly buried in the ground, but there are some emerged in water. And
also in houses, in flowerpots. They have four illuminated green leaves 
sticking out of the soil.  

When you find your first Nirnroot you will receive a quest entitled 'Seeking
out your Roots'. You will be told to seek out an Alchemist to find out what you
can do with these Nirnroots. There are many people you can consult, most Mages 
Guild halls have a resident Alchemist and there are Alchemical shops too.
This is a list of Alchemists:- 

Imperial City Marketplace: Ogier Georich, at The Main Ingredient.  
                           Claudette Perrik, at The Silver Carafe.
               Cheydinhal: Eiloway, at the Mages Guild hall.
                 Leyawiin: S'drassa,at the Mages Guild hall
                   Bravil: Ardaline,at the Mages Guild Hall
                    Bruma: Selena Orania, at the Mages Guild hall
                  Chorrol: Angalmo, at the Mages Guild Hall
                    Anvil: Fela Relas,at the Mages Guild hall
                 Skingrad: Falanu Hlaalu, at All Things Alchemical
                           Sinderion,in the Basement of the West Weald Inn

You can go and see who you want, but you will be directed to Sinderion at the 
West Weald Inn in Skingrad. Sinderion lives in the basement, I have never seen 
him outside so I assume he never leaves. The door to the basement has a very 
hard lock to pick, but you can never get the opportunity to pick it without 
being seen, and therefore without getting a bounty. So if you try to do this at
night you will just have to wait until morning.

Head down the stairs and you will find Sinderion's Alchemical Lab.

Sinderion will  tell you that he bought a musty old Alchemical tome that 
contained a recipe for a Elixer of Exploration, 'The Ultimate Dungeon Delver's
brew. This potion requires Nirnroot's.

Sinderion will ask you to give him ant Nirnroots you find, in return he will 
give you a free potion and give you a discount on any further one's that you
purchase. If you agree he will give you the 'Nirnroot Missive' and also mark
Shadeleaf Corpse on your map.

The Nirnroot Missive gives you the known history of the Nirnroot,apparently it
is a magical plant that is near extinction, but has evolved and adapted to 
changes in the environment. You can find Nirnroots near a body of water, you
can also find them in house's. People have them as pot plants.

Sinderion will require 10 Nirnroots for the first potion, this will create a
Weak Elixer of Exploration which gives you Night-Eye for 300 seconds and 
Fortify Health for 300 seconds.

When you have ten Nirnroots head back to Sinderion and talk to him about the
Elixer of Exploration and he will take the ten Nirnroots of you and ask you
return in 24 hours to collect your Elixer.

Sinderion will tell you that he will require twenty Nirnroots for a Moderate 
Elixer of Exploration which gives you Night-Eye 300 seconds, Fortify Health for
300 seconds and Fortify Fatigue for 300 seconds.

When you have collected twenty more Nirnroots, return to Sinderion and talk to
him about The Elixer of Exploration and he will take twenty Nirnroots off of 
you and ask you to return in 24 hours to receive your Moderate Elixer of 
Exploration.

Sinderion will tell you that he requires another thirty Nirnroots to create a
Strong Elixer of Exploration which gives you Night-Eye for 300 seconds, Fortify
Health 20 points for 300 seconds, Fortify Fatigue 20 points for 300 seconds,
Fortify Blade 5 points for 300 seconds, Fortify Blunt 5 points for 300 seconds,
Fortify Destruction 5 points for 300 seconds, Fortify Restoration 5 points for
300 seconds and Fortify Sneak 5 points for 300 seconds.

When you have collected another 30 samples of Nirnroot, return to Sinderion and
talk to him about the Elixer of Exploration and he will take thirty Nirnroots 
off of you and ask you to return in 24 hours to collect your Elixer.

Sinderion will tell you that he requires another forty Nirnroot to create the
Grand Elixer of Exploration which gives Fortify Health 20 points for 300
seconds, Fortify Fatigue 20 points for 300 seconds, Night-Eye for 300 seconds,
Fortify Blade 10 points for 300 seconds, Fortify Blunt 10 points for 300
seconds, Fortify destruction 10 points for 300 seconds, Fortify Restoration 300
seconds and Fortify Sneak 10 points for 300 seconds.

Sinderion will ask you to return in 24 hours to collect you Grand Elixer of
Exploration

Sinderion tells you that he cannot make another potion that will be stronger, 
but he offers to buy any more Nirnroots that you find off of you.

He will require 10 Nirnroot Samples off of you before he will buy any (will be
updated shortly, as to how much etc.)

I know that there are a lot more out there and will continue searching, if you 
find any more then please E-Mail me at x13thwarriorx@hotmail.co.uk

I hope this walkthrough has been of help to you. It is a bit difficult to give 
any better directions than I already have so unfortunately I don't think I will
be able to elaborate any further. These are only the ones that I have found 
outside I know of a few in the city's, but I will do a clean sweep of the 
city's and include these in a city list next time I update.

Happy Oblivioning
