Desperate Souls is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls Online.


Rogue Dark Elves flaunting the Pact are enslaving Argonians at a mine near Ash Mountain. A powerful Daedra rebelled against the mine's master. Then the Daedra took most of the people at the mine into Oblivion.



Collect the Firesap Gel from the slaver's rucksack just a few meters from Neposh. Enter the mine and use the Firesap Gel on the short red shards in the mine nearby. Return to Neposh.

A short distance nearby will be his father's shard. Use the sap once again, and slay Fatestealer, a unique Winged Twilight.
