Whitestone Tarnished is a task acquired by collecting one of the four Motus Mining papers scattered around Apotyre.

Motus Mining pulled out of Apotyre suddenly, leaving many citizens wondering why. Perhaps if I search the abandoned mining sites and offices, I might discover the reason behind their hasty departure.

In-game description


"Locate files of the Motus Mining Company."


The files can be found at the following locations:

  • Days 1-24: Found in Apotyre, Whitestone in a 2nd floor chest in the Thirsty Wench.
  • Days 25-44: Found Sun Camp, in a bookshelf below the wooden walkway, right under a merchant's tent. Said tent will be on the second marked pathway when entering the camp (first raised boardwalk on the northwest). An easier way to locate the bookshelf is to head towards the forge and face northwest. It's about half the height but can be easily missed.
  • Another copy of Days 25-44, also in Sun Camp, is on the wooden walkway, in the tent with a black cauldron. There is a small bookshelf on the table on the right. (Do not touch it as it's a bug item.)
  • Days 45-50: Just south of Snaketail Grotto, inside a dresser. Face south from the entrance and look for a doorless shack behind a Black Cohosh plant.
  • Day 51: On a corpse surrounded by bandits, in the passage between Menetyre and Apotyre.

Once all four have been collected, the quest is automatically completed.


  • Level-based experience (2,582 at level 34)


  • The documents can be safely sold after completing this task.


  • After completing the mission, a second copy of Days 25-44 may appear in the bookshelf in Sun Camp. It is recommended not to take this second copy after having completed the quest once already as the item will remain in the inventory and can't be removed.
