Dream of Hircine is a quest in the main questline of The Elder Scrolls III: Bloodmoon.

Objectives[edit | edit source]

  1. Leave disease uncured for three days.
  2. Rest after becoming a Werewolf.
  3. Speak to Hircine and go Southeast from the village to the Tombs of Skaalara.
  4. Kill all the Skaal trying to get in and protect the totem.
  5. Sharper claws are rewarded by Hircine.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

If you decide not to cure Sanies Lupinus, you will turn into a werewolf three days after contracting it. The next time you sleep, you will see a vision of yourself turning into a werewolf. You will now have to kill a character every night to stay healthy.

The second night after becoming a werewolf, Hircine will speak to you in a dream. He will tell you the Skaal are looking for the Totem of Claw and Fang in the Tombs of Skaalara. He then tells you to head over there to protect the totem and kill the Skaal.

The tomb is located in the Felsaad Coast region, to the southeast of the Skaal village. There are already a large number of Skaal in the tomb. Many of the Skaal carry silver weapons, which are extra powerful against werewolves, so defeating them in fair combat is nigh impossible. Instead, you should use sneak attacks to pick them off one by one. Alternatively, you can wait until you've reverted back to your human form and just kill them in regular combat.

You will get a message when one of the Skaal has found the Totem. Killing the Skaal in question will make the totem return to its resting place. Once all the Skaal are dead, you will receive a journal entry.

Reward[edit | edit source]

The following night, you will once again get a vision from Hircine, praising you for your good work and sharpening your claws as a reward.

ID Journal Entry
10 While sleeping, I had a strange dream. In it, the Daedra Prince Hircine spoke to me, telling me to journey to the Tombs of Skaalara. There, I am to keep the Skaal warriors from retrieving the Totem of Claw and Fang. I should kill any of the Skaal I meet in the Tombs. From what I saw in the dream, it appears the Tomb is located on the Felstaad [sic] [Do not change this to Felsaad. This misspelled word is how it appears in-game.] Coast, southeast of the Skaal Village.
