Detailed WalkthroughEdit

After defeating Thoron for Restoring Order (or by sneaking to avoid his detection while he is still alive), you can loot the items on his work table. The note Note on Amber and Madness Ore will give you a miscellaneous quest to investigate the area north of Mistwatch.

Travel to Mistwatch, a tower just east of the Atronach Stone. In the geyser fields just north of the tower, you'll find a stone altar and the camp of the mad blacksmith Evethra. Approach her and the objective will update to "Kill Evethra". Do so, then loot her journal along with the unique Arcane Blacksmith's Apron.

Read the journal to complete the quest and gain the ability to craft Amber/Madness items using the Glass Smithing and Ebony Smithing perks respectively.


  • The Shadowrend creation takes place to the west in close proximity to this quest's location.
  • Due to the large number of hostiles in the area, Evethra may leave her camp to fight bears, mudcrabs, or a dragon. She is marked essential until you receive the objective to kill her, but can be difficult to locate because of this.

  • The following empty quest stages were omitted from the table: (?).
  • Any text displayed in angle brackets (e.g., <Alias=LocationHold>) is dynamically set by the Radiant Quest system, and will be filled in with the appropriate word(s) when seen in game.
  • 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.
  • If an entry is marked as "Finishes Quest" it means the quest disappears from the Active Quest list, but you may still receive new entries for that quest.
  • On the PC, it is possible to use the console to advance through the quest by entering setstage ccBGSSSE025_MiscQuest_AmberMadnessGear stage, where stage is the number of the stage you wish to complete. It is not possible to un-complete (i.e. go back) quest stages, but it is possible to clear all stages of the quest using resetquest ccBGSSSE025_MiscQuest_AmberMadnessGear.
