Opening a Vein is a Quest in Kingdoms of Amalur:Re-Reckoning. Opening a Vein is a Side Quest available to the player. Completing Opening a Vein will give additional loot, items, experience or equipment, but it is not necessary to complete the game's main story.
I've been given access to the Skoria mine. Now all I need to do is recover a sample of the tyrenium ore. I was warned there may be monsters deeper in the mine.

Opening a Vein Objectives
- There are two ways this quest can play out depending on whether or not you chose to continue working with Mayor Eswin Ealfhelm at the end of Bone Town.
- Working with Mayor Eswin:
- He asks you to obtain a sample of tyrenium from Skoria Mine, south of Motus Mining Headquarters in Apotyre.
- Inside the mine, you will need to Persuade or bribe Thelgood Skoria to open the door for you. You can also pickpocket the Skoria Family Ring from Adath Skoria, which you can show to Thelgood and he will allow you in.
- You can obtain the sample by fighting the group of Niskaru and Niskaru Tyrant.
- When you have the sample, return to Mayor Eswin. He will then ask you to kill Adath Skoria.
- Adath is found in the General Store. As he is a neutral NPC, killing him is considered a crime and will place a bounty on your head but this can be avoided if done quickly enough.
- Return to Mayor Eswin to complete the quest.
- If you refused to continue working with the Mayor, you will instead be working with Adath Skoria:
- Find Adath Skoria in the General Store. He also tasks you with getting a sample of tyrenium from Skoria Mine and he will give you the Skoria Family Ring to show to Thelgood Skoria upon entry into the mine.
- Fight the Niskaru and Niskaru Tyrant to obtain the tyrenium sample.
- Return to Adath who says that Mayor Eswin Ealfhelm must die in order for Whitestone to recover.
- Go to the Mayor's house. He will start begging for his life and you can choose to kill him or Persuade him to go to jail.
- Regardless of your choice, speak to Adath Skoria outside the Mayor's house to complete the quest.
