Leyawiin Recommendation is a quest in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. As part of the Join the Mages Guild questpile, the Hero must get a recommendation from the Mages Guild Hall of each city.


Mages GuildEdit

Approach Dagail and ask her about her recommendation. Her response is very cryptic, but if the Hero accepts her offer, she will tell them to speak with Agata. Once she is found, ask her about the encounter with Degail. She will explain that Dagail is a seer and that her visions are crippling her because her protective amulet, the Seer's Stone, has gone missing. She asks the Hero to investigate. Asking members of the Mages Guild will provide more information about the Seer's Stone.

Asking around will point the finger of blame towards Kalthar, who lives in the basement of the Mages Guild. Speaking to him will allow one to see that he resents Dagail's position in the Guild, and mentions that her father had similar problems concerning visions. Head back to Agata and talk to her again – she assumes that Kalthar must have overheard a conversation between her and Dagail, but does not remember Dagail's father ever being mentioned.

After speaking to Degail once more, she will prove that her visions are becoming more severe, and anticipates the Hero's question before it is asked. She will provide an enigmatic answer, telling the Hero that they will need to go to the fort where her father was stationed. This is Fort Blueblood, which is located a short distance away from Leyawiin.

Fort BluebloodEdit

Leyawiin Recommendation Coffin

Dagail's late father's coffin

Fort Blueblood is a two-area dungeon inhabited by Marauders, a mix of fighters, archers, and battlemages. In the last room, the Hero will find a coffin occupied by Dagail's late father, in which they will find the amulet that he used. The coffin itself will be surrounded by leveled enemies.

Kalthar will prevent the Hero from leaving the fort. He will reveal that he was the one who stole Dagail's amulet, planning to return it after she had been forced to step down from her position among the Guild's ranks; as one might expect, he believes that he should be the one who should take her place. He will then turn hostile and attack the Hero.

Leyawiin Recommendation

Killing Kalthar

After he is defeated, take his key and exit the fort. Then, return to Leyawiin and give the amulet to Dagail. She will be restored to coherency, and will give her recommendation for the Hero's initiation.
