After returning to Ald'ruhn, follow Seryn to find the Wise Woman inside her tent. Upon entering her tent, Chodala will be waiting there, saying the wise woman has gone to the cavern of the Incarnate to confirm his claim to be Nerevarine.

Cavern of the IncarnateEdit

Upon entering the cavern, Wise Woman Dovrosi can be encountered. After speaking to her she will give you blessed grave dust to be poured on the dead corpses of the failed incarnates Ranso, Aduri and Danaat. After fulfilling the request, the spirits of the three will give you a scroll explaining the reason they were Failed Incarnates. After talking to them, head to the statue of Azura in the caverns to speak with her. She will instruct you to return to Ald'ruhn and help Dovrosi and Seryn prove Chodala's claim wrong.

Disproving Chodala's claimEdit

After returning to Ald'ruhn, Seryn will be waiting outside Skar. She will explain that Chodala is inside Skar with the Wise Woman, about to be announced Nerevarine. She says that since outlanders do not have status in the council she will have to be the one to challenge her brother's claim, with the help of the scrolls of the Failed Incarnates. Enter Skar together with Seryn and hear her speech. To counter her brother's arguments, she will need you to provide her with the correct scroll of the Failed Incarnates. First, she will need Ranso's scroll, then Aduri's, and lastly Dannat's. The Wise Woman will then deny Chodala's claim and he will run away in anger, calling out his Red Exile soldiers to attack.

After defeating the Red Exiles follow Seryn outside. Azura will talk through Seryn, naming her Champion of the Moon and Star and asking you to assist Vivec. After hearing her out, return to Vivec's Palace and talk to him.



Journal Entry
Instead of confronting Chodala directly, the Archcanon suggests I return to Ald'ruhn and talk to his sister, Seryn. She was willing to help me last time and might be willing to do so again.
  • Objective: Return to Ald'ruhn
I reached Ald'ruhn and located Seryn. It looks like she was expecting me. I should talk to her.
  • Objective: Talk to Seryn
Seryn wants to try to talk to her brother. She warned me that we need to follow Ashlander traditions in this; if I attack Chodala, it will just lead to war. I should follow her into the Wise Woman's hut and talk to her.
  • Objective: Talk to Seryn
Seryn asked me to journey to the Cavern of the Incarnate and talk to the Wise Woman. She wants me to convince her not to support Chodala's claim that he's the Nerevarine.
  • Objective: Go to the Cavern of Incarnate
I reached the Cavern of the Incarnate to find the Wise Woman under attack! I need to rescue her.
  • Objective: Rescue the Wise Woman
I rescued the Wise Woman from her Daedric attackers. Now I should meet her inside the Cavern of the Incarnate and talk to her about Chodala's claim.
  • Objective: Talk to the Wise Woman in the Cavern
The Wise Woman said we need knowledge to discredit Chodala's claim. She gave me grave dust so I can commune with the spirits of the incarnates—failed Nerevarine from previous generations—to build an argument against Chodala.
  • Objective: Commune with Incarnate Ranso
  • Objective: Commune with Incarnate Aduri
  • Objective: Commune with Incarnate Danaat
    • Objective Hint: Use Grave Dust
Azura, the Daedric Prince of Dawn and Dusk, manifests from the great statue and commands that I speak with her.
  • Objective: Talk to Azura
Azura bade me to take the words of the Incarnates and return to Ald'ruhn. I need to let Seryn know what I discovered.
  • Objective: Talk to Seryn
The Ashlander tribal council is meeting inside Skar in Ald'ruhn. I should go inside so I can help Seryn convince the tribes that Chodala isn't the Nerevarine.
  • Objective: Enter Skar
Since I can't speak in the Ashlander council, I need to provide Seryn with the proper scroll at the proper time. Hopefully, the examples each scroll demonstrates will convince the tribes not to accept Chodala as the Nerevarine.
  • Objective: Help Seryn Disprove Chodala's Claim
    • Objective Hint: Give Seryn the Correct Scroll
Chodala refused to bow to the Wise Woman's decision and revealed that the staff protects him from harm. He ordered the Red Exiles to destroy the council of tribes. I need to protect the tribe members and stop the Red Exiles.
  • Objective: Defeat the Red Exiles
Seryn went after her brother. I should follow her.
  • Objective: Follow Seryn
Azura has taken possession of Seryn and wants to talk to me. I should see what she has to say.
  • Objective: Talk to Azura
Azura urged me to return to Vivec's Palace immediately. I need to see how Vivec's doing while Seryn tracks down her brother, Chodala.
  • Objective: Return to Vivec's Palace
Lord Vivec looks terrible! He's even weaker and more enfeebled than he was the last time I saw him. I should talk to him and see if there's anything I can do to help.
  • Objective: Talk to Vivec
