"Horrible creatures! Replete with horror and evil. They roam freely eastward of the estate. I look forward to you exterminizing them."
Lord Rugdumph gro-Shurgak[src]

The Noble's Daughter is a quest in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Burz gro-Khash wants the Hero to help an old family friend of his, Lord Rugdumph gro-Shurgak, at Lord Rugdumph's Estate near Lake Arrius.

Head over to the location and talk to Lord Rugdumph. His daughter, Lady Rogbut gra-Shurgak, has gone missing and they must help to find her.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

After discussing the situation with Lord Rugdumph, head outside towards the east. The Hero will find Lady Rogbut, being held by three Ogres. They will attack on sight, causing the daughter to become involved and fight against her captors.

To avoid being overwhelmed by the three Ogres, run backwards while either shooting arrows or casting spells. Luring the Ogres back towards Lord Rugdumph's Estate, more specifically to the servant's quarters building, is another useful strategy. There is a low wall with a wooden gate directly to the west of it.

Jump over the fence to the left of the gate. The Ogres will attempt to open it and follow in. However, since they are too big to fit through the opening, they will fail to reach the Hero. Move towards them, attack, back pedal, and repeat. This is one of the easiest and safest ways to kill them as a melee class.

Head back to the house with the daughter after killing all three Ogres to receive the reward, Rugdumph's Sword, from Lord Rugdumph. Lady Rogbut will be appear to be embarrassed about the incident, and will ask the Hero to never say a word about it to anyone. Return to Burz gro-Khash in Cheydinhal to complete the quest for Gold.
