===Ruunvald Excavation===
Upon locating Ruunvald Excavation, ''[[Volk's Journal]]'' can be found outside in a tent hinting at something amiss with the ruins. All of the [[Charmed Vigilant|Vigilants]] that had been working on the ruins have been subjugated and will attack on sight. Head inside and down the wooden ramp, past the crate with ''[[Discovering Ruunvald, Vol I]]'' atop, and defeat the two Vigilants. Go north into the tunnels and past the crates and a cart with three pieces of [[malachite ore]]. Kill two more Vigilants and head on past a tripwire that sets off an oil trap. Two chests can be found at various points through the tunnel.

The tunnel ends, opening up into a cavern with two more Vigilants and a [[husky]]. Head down the ramp and dispatch the enemies. Some leveled potions can be found on the western wall and a malachite ore vein is under the ramp. ''[[Discovering Ruunvald, Vol II]]'' is on a crate next to a bed roll by a large stone pillar.

Upon entering the tunnels, head straight to the candlelit area where the book ''[[Minorne (Book)|Minorne]]'' is. Go south to the large cavern where Florentius is being held in a cage while being attacked by [[Minorne (Character)|Minorne]], [[Moric Sidrey]], and a Vigilant.

Killing Minorne results in the death of all remaining charmed vigilants. Check Minorne for the key to Florentius' cell. After a brief "discussion" with [[Arkay]], Florentius will agree to assist the Dawnguard and will head to Fort Dawnguard. This completes the quest.

It is possible, by using the combination of any sort of Invisibility potions or skills, to bypass all the Charmed Vigilants and kill [[Minorne (Character)|Minorne]] directly. Killing her and ending the quest would result in death of all Charmed Vigilants instantly.

*It is possible, with the help of [[Invisibility (Skyrim)|invisibility]] ([[Potions (Skyrim)|potions]] or [[Spells (Skyrim)|spells]]), [[Throw Voice]] [[Shout]] and a high [[Sneak (Skyrim)|sneak]] [[Skills (Skyrim)|skill]] to bypass all the Charmed Vigilants and kill Minorne only; this results in the instant death of all Charmed Vigilants.

*This quest must be started before completing "[[Touching the Sky (Quest)|Touching the Sky]]." Otherwise, any attempt to speak with Isran will cause him to call the Dawnguard together and trigger the start of "[[Kindred Judgment]]," making it impossible to ask him about Florentius. Alternatively, you can complete it after "Kindred Judgement."

**Fix: There is a way to fix this. After you have completed "Touching the Sky," head back to Fort Dawnguard,Isran is just standing in the middle of the hall. Speak to him and process the "Kindred Judgment." He will then gather the members of Dawnguard, and make a speech to the others. At this time, talk to Sorine. It should not give you the "this person is busy" message, so she is able to be talked to. Asking her for help, she will reveal the name of the man Florentius, and tell the Dragonborn to talk to Isran for further information. Then the quest will be started. You need to quick click the key you use to talk to others so that you can finish the conversation before Isran finishes his speech. After the conversation, wait for Isran to finish his speech and he will talk to you. After he finishes talking, we talk to him, there should be an option "I need to find a man named Florentius," and he will tell you the location.

*Florentius may attack you for no reason at all. Using the "Bend Will" Shout will allow you to engage in dialogue with him long enough to complete the mission. He will resume attacking after the shout wears off. Not even reloading or sheathing will stop him. (If you have a bounty it is suggested to pay it before doing the quest or pay and return after a strategic retreat. Alternatively PC users can apply a simple [[Console Commands (Skyrim)|console command]] <code>player.paycrimegold (amount) (factionID)</code>.)

*{{XBOX360}} When entering the temple area, you may load in Florentius' quarters and without a key, you cannot go anywhere. This is fixed with a simple reload.
