Skyros, no one tells you about the Clavicus Vile shrine. However, it is not far SW of the Imperial City. The Gold Road and the Red Road make a loop and the shrine is in that loop.

Man am I behind - I haven't played all week. I just made level 5 and have a bunch of stuff I stole so I can fence my 50 gold worth of items for the Thieves Guild quest. Other than that I haven't accomplished a whole lot.

Threads - I had a terrible time in a couple of places getting my blue flag to work also. I found I can't move it if I'm standing on the location I want to place it - I either have to move the flag over or move me over.

Hi all,

Well I've completed all the Guilds and am now the honcho of all of them. I'm now working on the Daedric Quests and have just gotten the Goldbrand (which was my weapon of choice in Morrowind).

I got a message from the game that there was a stone that restored the magic in magicical weapons but I forgot which stone it was. Does anyone know what the stone is and where they can be found?

Oldman, you must have your info mixed up. You're not the head honcho - I am! razz

The stones for enchanting are called varla stones and can be found in ruins. They are not that plentiful. Since they enchant all your weapons at once it is only worthwhile to use them when you are stuck inside a dungeon and have ran out of enchantment on most of your weapons. Once the stones are used they are gone. If you are on the surface and if you have enough money (as any honcho should) then it is more worthwhile to pay for the enchanting services offered by mages.

I am only the head of the Dark Brotherhood (soon to be renamed the Dark Sisterhood razz ) but will soon work my way to the top of another guild or 3.

I have used 2 Varla stones and have 8 in my inventory. A hint, if you are doing The Collector quest, every ruin that has a statue in it has 1 or 2 Varla stones. Hmm, I have retrieved 5 statues - therefore I'm definitely finding 2 Varla in each ruin. And The Collector quest is worth 10,000 gold if you complete it. All up, a worthy miscellaneous quest.

Syd, thanks for that tip - think that may be what is wrong - can hardly place an arrow through my foot lol Dashed is I can understand what the S.G. means by "The switch to raise the steps is on the right at the top of the northern stairs". I've been to the top of both sets of steps attached to the column. No switch. Have retraced my steps out of the room/hall to the north - no switches at the top of those stairs.

I've climbed and investigated the stone stairs which are crumbling.

As I suppose I could be reading the compass incorrectly - I spent another hour repeating all this activity in reverse.

I've even swept the floor ! laugh

I was so pleased with myself for lowering the other pillar first time off - cry this has taken the grin off my face.

BTW - found my first varla stone in the caves. Bit of luck 'cos I needed it.

Alice

If I'm remembering that ancient helm quest correctly, threads, the switch is up some stairs along the opposite wall from where you entered.

So you go in the door, walk PAST the big dias, eventually head up the stairs, and then look on that platform for the switch. I think it's a blue switch near the edge of the platform, facing the helm.

But that's based on memory from a week or two ago, so...meh.

Pib, I'm doing the Collector quest right now and I am stuck in the ruin called called Sardavar Leed. I'm in the second level and have killed the necromancer adept who is in the section with the locked gates. I have searched that area thoroughly and can't find the statue. Do you remember anything about obtaining this statue? I am tearing my hair out. help

Threads, I'm a little stuck on the Dark Fissure quest. I found the Dark Fissure but now what? If you figure out what "watch mysterious lights" means, let me know. I thought maybe it was an eclipse but I can't get the quest to progress. If you find out what the next trigger is, let me know.

Tamia, all you have to do is wait for a Worm Anchorite to come out of the wooden door and worship at the altar for the King of Worms to change ordinary soul gems into black soul gems. I hid behind a rock from where I could see both door and altar. Got there early so went through the day waiting an hour at a time. When the clock showed 11:45 I thought "Ah, the witching hour approaches" and just stood and waited.

The Anchorite arrived at midnight He approached the altar but didn't see me. Was supposed to watch the ritual and report back - didn't actual SEE the ritual but the game flashed the information I had and should report back. I fast travelled away like a stroke of lightning.

Have a strange feeling I might have to revisit at a later date laugh

Alice

*Edit* If you have to fight and kill the anchorite before he reaches the altar don't worry. Apparently he has a note on his body that details what the necromancers are up to - Polus will accept that in lieu of witnessing the ritual.

Rowan, I have never found any statue there. Try to contiune with the others.
The questgiver always talks about getting the ten statues together, but the S.G mentions 11 ruins to find statues.

Caroline.

Thanks, Caroline. I've been continuing with the other ruins but am not finished yet.

I had a nice surprise. I "lost" my priory horse some time ago and thought he was dead because he no longer fast travelled with me. Today I visited the priory and there was the horse in the stable. :kiss:

Tamia, I believe the strange lights above the altar happen just once a week. I would set the time close to midnight and then cycle through a few 24 hr periods until the lights shine.

Off to another dungeon and another statue for the collector.

That's cool. So far Shadowmere has twice decided to return to Fort Farragut. It's usually my fault cause he insists on battling with me and in the confusion woozy , it's easy to hit the horse and not the enemy. cry I may have to adopt a policy of 'if Shadowmere is fighting, wait till he faints' which means that anything left standing is enemy.

I collected another statue for that one quest - the Ninendava way out north of Chorrol. I wish those statues looked nicer, very dull and ugly looking to me. (Note to self - mod?)

This wiki says As a note, There are NONE in: Sardavar Leed

I'm in Anvil now working on mages quests and fighter's guild quests. On the fighters guild one where you kill the mountain lions that are attacking the woman's pet rats, she tells you Quill, a neighbor, is who she suspects. According to the SG if you wait on the western side of the woman's yard, near a bush, the one she suspects of doing something to the rats will come a little before 8:00 pm to put down meat. You have to be very careful she doesn't see you or she won't put it down.

Well, I've waited there several times, have tried both the eastern and western sides, have started at 7:30 so as not to miss her and stayed till 9:00 pm, and still haven't seen her. Does anyone remember this one? I sure do need the money!

I followed her for quite a while. Finally she went into sneak mode and put the meat down. I believe she does it after 9PM. Did you talk to her first?
