The remains of the Lost Paladin

Quick WalkthroughEdit

  1. Travel to Forelhost.
  2. Defeat the Lost Paladin and take Chrysamere.

Detailed WalkthroughEdit

Once you've installed the Chrysamere Creation, you will receive this quest and be directed to Forelhost. You will likely need to navigate the entirety of the dungeon in order to reach the quest objective.

When you reach the Forelhost Battlements, you'll find the Lost Paladin in front of the Word Wall wielding Chrysamere. You will be able to take the blade once you kill the ghost. Be advised that you may also have to fight Captain Valmir if you are completing the quest Siege on the Dragon Cult at the same time.


  • Your journal will repeatedly update with the current quest objective each time you enter a new section of Forelhost.
  • The ghost will sometimes not appear at all.
    • This seems to be due to a conflict of some sort with the Siege on the Dragon Cult quest. If you have not done the quest yet, either do not start it, or reload a save where you have not started it. Avoid Captain Valmir and climb up to the battlements. This may require clever use of jumping/horses/Whirlwind Sprint. The ghost should properly spawn in front of the word wall.
