Location: Inside the Thieves Guild in Riften

Level: Master (can train up to level 100)

Extra Info: The Thieves Guild HQ can be found by entering The Ratways, which is accessible via the northern segment of Riften by the sewers.

From there head into the Cistern room, run straight ahead and follow the passageway until you see a large room filled with archery targets and a practicing bowman, that’s Nirium. Occasionally he’ll be drinking at the bar, but more times than not he’s perfecting his art on this range.
