The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Guide - Mages Guild

Fingers of the Mountain (Chorrol Recommendation)

In the Chorrol Mages Guild hall, locate Teekeeus the Argonian and select the 'Recommendation' dialogue option while speaking to him. Teekeeus wants you to see a woman named Earana, who he apparently has a bad history with. He has spotted her in town and is sure she is up to something.

Leave the guild hall and look around for Earana the High Elf; you should be able to spot her rather quickly. There is matter she would like to involve you in, but she'd rather the Mages Guild not know about it; she wants you to retrieve a book, entitled 'Fingers of the Mountain.' Despite Earana's wises, return to the Guild Hall and inform Teekeeus of Earana's request. Teekeeus asks that you retrieve the book and immediately return to the guild hall and hand it over to him.

Speak to Earana outside the Mages Guild hall.

There are two ways you can go about completing this quest: either retrieve the book and give it Earana to learn the 'Fingers of the Mountain' spell, or retrieve the book and give it to Teekeeus, who will hide it away to ensure that it does not fall into the wrong hands. Either way, you'll still get the recommendation.

The Fingers of the Mountain book is on Cloud Top, which is a small hill northwest of Chorrol. The hill may seem too steep to climb, but walking over the grass on the sides of the hill, you should be able to ascend to the top. Once you've made it to the top, look for the book among someone's charred remains. Lovely.

Earana is waiting at The Grey Mare tavern in Chorrol, and Teekeeus in the Chorrol Mages Guild hall. If you choose to give the book to Teekeeus, he will take it, lock it away, and give you your recommendation.

Search the Charred Remains on the Cloud Top landmark northwest of Chorrol to find the Fingers of the Mountain book.

If you choose to give the book to Earana, the 'Fingers of the Mountain, Part II' quest will be added to your journal. You'll need to complete this quest first, and then inform Teekeeus that you gave the book to Earana. Then, you must steal the book back from Earana and bring it to Teekeeus to earn the recommendation. To steal the book back, return to The Grey Mare and take the stairs up to the second floor. Use a spell or lockpick to open the door at the end of the hall, and then the chest inside the room to find the book.

The Finger of the Mountain spell learned by giving the book to Earana may cost an insane amount of magicka to cast, as the strength and magicka cost of the spell is dependent on the level your character is when the spell is learned. As such, you may not be able to cast the spell unless your character has an amount of magicka attainable only by glitching.

Has anyone else had a bug where the quest just doesn't finish? I gave the book to Teekeeus and the quest is not in my completed nor current quest pages, and the game still says I have to do the Chorrol recommendation. Any help?
