The Master Vampire in Pinemoon Cave

Quick WalkthroughEdit

  1. Speak to Sybille Stentor.
  2. Kill the Master Vampire in Pinemoon Cave.
  3. Return to Sybille Stentor for your reward.

Detailed WalkthroughEdit

Speak to Sybille Stentor in the Blue Palace throne room and ask what her problem is. She will tell you about a local nest of vampires which you should wipe out.

The first area of Pinemoon Cave

Make your way to Pinemoon Cave, west of Solitude. It is a very small cave with only four chambers, and an assortment of vampires and wolves. You only need to kill the Master Vampire to complete the quest. He can be found in the third chamber, a large room with pews facing an altar. The Master Vampire can be found on the altar area. However, he has two companions who will also attack if you are detected. They will reanimate a corpse of a Nord which lies on a table in the southern part of the chamber.

Vampires attacking

If you do clear out the cave, there is a locked chest next to the altar. Also do not forget the fourth chamber, the sleeping quarters, which contains the Illusion skill book Incident at Necrom and another chest.


Exit the way you came in and return to Sybille Stentor for your reward, which is jewelry and a single free skill boost in Illusion.


  • Because this is a favor quest which affects Sybille's disposition, it will count towards the "Help the People" part of the Thane of Haafingar quest.

Quest StagesEdit

Kill the Vampire (Favor109)
Stage Finishes Quest Journal Entry
Objective 10: Kill the leader of Pinemoon Cave
Objective 15: Tell Sybille the vampire is dead
20 Finishes quest 
  • The following empty quest stages were omitted from the table: 0, 200.
  • 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 Favor109 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 Favor109.
