Quest StagesEdit

Unto the Dark
Finishes Quest Journal Entry
I need to Speak at the former Chancellor Gascone to see if he knows how the Whispering Shadows cultists are moving through the city. We may be able to use their own methods against them.
Objective: Talk to Chancellor Gascone
Gascone claims to have the information I need, but he wants a favor in return. I either need to help him retrieve a mysterious contract, or convince him to tell me now.
Complete one: Find Chancellor Gascone's Contract or Get the Information from Gascone
I learned that the Whispering Shadows cultists use portals called Gloaming Gates to navigate the city in secret. Luciana and I could use these gates to reach the Cogitum Centralis—and Sotha Sil. I should inform Luciana.
Objective: Talk to Luciana
Luciana and I decided to split up and explore separate Gloaming Gates. I must travel to the eastern reaches of the Radius to find one of these gates.
Objective: Find and Enter the Gloaming Gate
Optional Step: Talk to the Knave of Rooks
I entered the Gloaming Gate and found myself in the Evergloam—the realm of the Daedric Prince, Nocturnal. I need to look for other portals that might lead me to my destination: the Cogitum Centralis.
Objective: Navigate the Evergloam
An imposing Nocturnal Shrike, Nightmaiden Viriana, captured Luciana. I must defeat this Daedric creature to free my companion.
Objective: Defeat Nightmaiden Viriana
I defeated Nightmaiden Viriana. I should follow Luciana through the nearby Gloaming Gate. Hopefully this one leads back to the Clockwork City.
Objective: Enter the Final Gloaming Gate
Finishes quest  We successfully navigated the Evergloam and found our route to the Cogitum Centralis. I should talk to Luciana about our next move.
Objective: Talk to Luciana

  • Not all Journal Entries may appear in your journal; which entries appear and which entries do not depends on the manner in which the quest is done.
  • Stages are not always in order of progress. This is usually the case with quests that have multiple possible outcomes or quests where certain tasks may be done in any order. Some stages may therefore repeat objectives seen in other stages.
