Stop Mad Urkazbur's work
A caravan bringing books to Orsinium has been waylaid by ogres. The books have likely been torn to pieces. If I'm to reassemble them for their rightful owner, these creatures will need to be dealt with.

Quick WalkthroughEdit

  1. Gather ten torn pages.
  2. Defeat Mad Urkazbur.
  3. Talk to Cirantille.

Detailed WalkthroughEdit

Cirantille's research into Wrothgar's native ogres has been disrupted by... well, ogres. They've made a mess of her books, and now she's waiting in Skalar's Hostel for someone to salvage the pieces of her research.

Your task is to gather Torn Pages, which can be put together to form The Ogres of Wrothgar: A Continuing Treatise. The pages can be found on the bodies of dead ogres found throughout the snowy region eastern Wrothgar. You must also slay Mad Urkazbur, an exceptionally powerful ogre capable of creating icy simulacra resembling himself.

When you've collected all ten pages of Cirantille's book and defeated the mad ogre, return to the researcher, who is sat in a chair at the base of the stairs at Skalar's Hostel.


  • The number of torn pages to gather was reduced from 20 to 10 in Update 18.
  • A piece wanted by Wrothgar's House of Orsimer Glories, the Mad Ogre Ice Sculpture, can be found next to Mad Urkazbur's altar.
