Zone 1: Moss Rock CavernEdit

Moss Rock Cavern

This cave is fairly straightforward. Upon entering through door Out, you will find yourself in a room containing two enemies, two minor loot chests, and the cave's only intersection. It is advisable to lure the two enemies back into the entrance tunnel, as the fighting might alert other enemies in adjacent rooms. In the northwest corner of the room is a Hard-locked wood door (C) leading to Raelynn's chamber. If you are only interested in the related quest, you can immediately pick the lock and fight her. The other option is to first explore the entire zone until you find the key to the door.

The path to the east leading through most of the zone is simple: fight your way through the enemies you encounter (searching a minor loot chest on the way) until you reach the final room. In the large rectangular chamber you will find three undead enemies. As they are on a lower level, try to take advantage of the high ground by killing them when they are below you or attempting to climb up.

The final room holds two enemies, one of them a boss-level necromancer (A). Try to fight the first enemy in the passage so you can deal with the stronger necromancer alone. The room also features a necromancer's chest (k) containing the key to Raelynn's room and a good chance of loot, a bed (b) in the northeast corner with one sample each of nightshade and ogre's teeth nearby, and a Daedric statue. Three zombie corpses are sprawled on an altar in the middle of the room.

Backtrack to the wood door and open it with the key. In the room beyond you will find Raelynn (Q) and a second boss-level necromancer (A). Try to concentrate first on Raelynn, then the other necromancer. Also in the room are two boss chests (B), a minor loot coffin, a Daedric statuette, and an assortment of gems.
