Our final goal at Vernim must be to kill Stral and end the threat of the Reachmen. Unfortunately he's protected by a death shroud in the central ruin.

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  2. Talk to Lieutenant Belron.
  3. Destroy the Withering Idol.
  4. Talk to Lieutenant Belron.
  5. Defeat the Graveborn in the Vaults of Vernim.
  6. Defeat Stral in Stral's Ritual Site.
  7. Talk to Orla at the Vernim Woods camp.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Lieutenant Belron has a plan to get you through the death shroud to Stral. He is going to kill you, sort of. He put the Graveborn hearts you collected in the previous quest into a potion, which you drink.

Once the conversation ends, you should be able to "Use Gray Jar" as long as you are close to Belron. The potion turns you into a skeleton.

Talk to Belron again. At the bottom of the ruin is a totem. Destroying it will destroy the death shroud and allow the living to get through.

The ruin is southwest. At the bottom of the stairs is a vine with a skull, the Withering Idol.

After you destroy it, Belron will run down. If you have the Persuasion Perk, you can ask him to magically aid you in the fight.

Enter the Vaults of Vernim. The Graveborn enemies will start to attack you. You need to defeat all of them, then enter Stral's Ritual Site to the west. Defeat Stral, then return to the Pact's camp at Vernim Woods. Talk to Orla. Dajaheel and Belron died fighting Stral, but she promises to make sure their sacrifices are remembered.
