A chaurus guards Myrwatch

Quick WalkthroughEdit

  1. Travel to Myrwatch and take Hans's Journal from Hans.
  2. Read the journal and cast a fire spell at the seal.
  3. Enter the tower to complete the quest.

Detailed WalkthroughEdit

This quest automatically begins upon approaching Myrwatch, an undiscovered tower marked on your map. The tower is just east of Morthal and is guarded by a lone leveled Chaurus. You will need to attempt to open the locked front entrance in order to update the quest.

The body of Hans can be found nearby. Loot his body and read Hans's Journal to learn how to gain entrance to the tower. The journal provides a hint in this regard:

"When the eye is doused in flames, the hair [sic] will light the way."

You will need to cast a fire damage spell at the eye-shaped seal on the ground in front of the entrance. Helpfully, Hans can also be looted for a copy of Spell Tome: Flames in case you have no fire damage spells. Once you cast the spell, the ghostly apparition of a rabbit will appear (or more than likely a hare, per the hint in the journal). The apparition will proceed to hop over to the nearby magical brazier and will cause it to alight with a tower of blue energy. You will then receive a message stating that "The tower door was unlocked by mysterious forces."

Head inside the tower to complete the quest and investigate your new player home.

  • The following empty quest stages were omitted from the table: 200.
Notes
  • 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 ccEEJSSE002_MageTowerQuest 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 ccEEJSSE002_MageTowerQuest.
