Detailed WalkthroughEdit

When you talk to Throne Keeper Farvad, he will suggest you learn from the spirits of HoonDing's Watch by witnessing the Ra Gada's campaign in Hammerfell and the enemies they faced. The structure of each major stage of the quest is fairly identical. You will be required to fight the ghosts of multiple enemies and collecting their essence before the mini-boss appears. While collecting essence, try fighting as many as you can handle. Be wary of chasing down archers with melee abilities as they may run too close to other groups of enemies and bring them into battle as well. Between each of these stages, you can talk to Farvad who will tell you about the enemies and the lessons the Ra Gada learned while facing them.

The first faction you'll face are the Nedes, Hammerfell's original inhabitants. After collecting three samples of Nedic Ghostly Essence from Nedic Ravagers, Sorcerers and Berserkers, Warchief Haakon will appear. The second faction will be Giant Goblins led by the Flint-Tooth Warchief. The Goblin Ghostly Essence can be collected from Flint-Tooth Archers, Shamans or Skirmishers.

The third faction are the Orcs of Orsinium, from when the Ra Gada joined with the Bretons to stop Orcish raids along the Bjoulsae River. Collect three samples of Orc Ghostly Essence from Orsinium Duelists, Archers and Brutes and then slay General Theshaga. The fourth and final faction shown are the Bretons led by King Joile, who betrayed the alliance between High Rock and Hammerfell after the Siege of Orsinium. You'll fight through ghostly Daggerfall Knights, Pyromancers and Soldiers, collecting Breton Ghostly Essence before encountering the Breton king.

These battles will have brought you to the top of the ruins, where you will need to speak to Throne Keeper Farvad once more. After this, he will have another task for you.
