"I would think its purpose is is pretty clear, but it's the finer details that are of interest, eh? A smugglers' cove of some convenience, a little too well known for anyone to stick around for long. Expect the current tenants to be quite vigilant."

Heist: The Hideaway is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls Online: Thieves Guild.


I was tipped off about treasures stashed in The Hideaway. I don't have much time to secure the goods before they're moved, so I should act quickly on this lead.

Quick walkthroughEdit

  1. Talk to Far'ren-dar
  2. Enter Tunnels to Begin Heist
  3. Find the Treasure
    • Find Hidden Caches: 0/3
    • Optional: Complete the Heist Before Time Runs Out
  4. Get Back to Far'ren-dar
  5. Talk to Far'ren-dar
  6. Collect Reward from Far'ren-dar


The quest is initiated from the heist board, which in this specific heist reads the bare details of the mission:

"Sniffed out another bunch of squatters making use of The Hideaway. Looks like they're holding product too. We should move on it immediately, but try to keep a low profile and we might leech off them for a while before they catch wise."

After receiving this quest, one should speak with Far'ren-dar for immediate transportation to The Hideaway, where they, within the allotted time limit of eight minutes, shall collect the treasure at the north end of the location and three hidden caches scattered around in hidden tunnels. Players should be wary of traps, as they are numerous, and even more so of the patrollers, as if they are discovered, their allotted time is reduced by a minute for each enemy that discovers them.
