Main article: Balmora Locations

Balmora Mages Guild is the Mages Guild hall on the west side of Balmora in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. It is connected to the other guild halls via a Guild Guide.

There are many kinds of merchants that sell their goods here. alchemy apparatuses and ingredients, enchanted items, potions, scrolls, soul gems, and spells are all for purchase from various Guild members inside the hall. A number of services, including enchanting, spellmaking, and skill training are also available to guild members here.

Just to the right of Ranis Athrys as one enters from the ground floor door is a Mages Supply Chest that contains a lesser soul gem, some potions, some scrolls and a random non-skill book on a magical subject. The contents of this chest may be freely taken by any Guild member and it resupplies itself periodically.

Many quests can be obtained here, including those that advance the Nerevarine within the Guild.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Galbedir is almost always standing right next to her table, making stealing her supply of soul gems difficult. However, she is noticeably absent during the quest "Fake Soul Gem" and this provides an excellent opportunity to steal them should the Nerevarine feel so inclined.

  3. Be descriptive when listing the bug and fixes, but avoid having conversations in the description and/or using first-person anecdotes: such discussions belong on the appropriate forum board.
  • One of the Lesser Soul Gems on Galbedir's table is owned by Galdal Omayn. Due to the similarities of the first names and the fact that Omayn is the next name in the Construction Set name picker after Galbedir, this is likely a mistaken assignment. There are no quests involving him and this soul gem, nor is there any mention of it in any of his dialogue.
