"My research is vital to the study of spellcasting. This amulet may enable the safe and efficient harvesting of potent magicka, such as the wamasu's lightning. It's relatively safe, which makes Drulis's refusal so galling."
―Gathotar[src]

Gathotar is a Nord researcher conducting experiments on an amulet purposely crafted to protect the wearer from the powerful lightning attacks of the Wamasus, harvesting the lightning's magicka.

InteractionsEdit

Catch the LightningEdit

Gathotar requires the help of the Vestige in an experiment regarding lightning and wamasus, as his previous assistant refused to partake in it.

DialogueEdit

Catch the Lightning

"Oh, hello there. Didn't see you approach. Are you looking for work? If so, I seem to need a new assistant for my research."

What research? "I'm investigating the nature of magicka. My current assistant, Drulis, refuses to continue. I am fairly certain I've perfected by amulet, but the coward refuses to play his part."
And what part is that? "Oh, it's perfectly safe, I assure you. I just need someone to put on the amulet and then irritate a wamasu until it emits lightning. Would you convince Drulis to continue our work? Or failing that, perhaps you can take his place."
I'll see what I can do. "My research is vital to the study of spellcasting. This amulet may enable the safe and efficient harvesting of potent magicka, such as the wamasu's lightning. It's relatively safe, which makes Drulis's refusal so galling."
Why isn't Drulis convinced? "He tends to get hurt. If he'd just follow my instructions, all would go well. I told him to remove the codpiece last time. And not to touch the copper wire before that. He may be an old family friend, but he's not the swiftest boat in the river."

Questioning Gathotar again:

"Return once you've convinced Drulis to do his job. If he won't, perhaps you'd undertake it."

Why do you need wamasu lightning? "My research is vital to the study of spellcasting. This amulet may enable the safe and efficient harvesting of potent magicka, such as the wamasu's lightning. It's relatively safe, which makes Drulis's refusal so galling."

After convincing Drulis:

"Have you spoken to Drulis?"

Drulis agreed to collect wamasu lightning for you. "Excellent! He'll be perfectly safe. Well, assuming he avoids its gaping maw and other pointy bits, that is."

After catching the lightning:

[?]

After "Catching the Lightning," if Drulis was convinced:

"I hope Drulis acts quickly. I could do with a good night's rest."
