Molag Bal's Quest is a quest undertaken by the Nerevarine on behalf of Molag Bal during the events of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.

Objectives[edit | edit source]

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

When exploring the Daedric shrine of Yansirramus (west of Tel Aruhn) the Nerevarine may discover a statue dedicated to the Daedric Prince of Domination and Enslavement, Molag Bal. Molag Bal will proceed to contact the Nerevarine when they interact with the statue, stating that he has a task for them to complete (and will be rewarded for doing so).

The Lazy Menta Na[edit | edit source]

Molag Bal reveals that the creation of his Menta Na has displeased him, and he must be killed for his laziness. Menta Na can be found in Kora-Dur, a cave near to Kogoruhn. It is revealed, however, that Menta Na is, in fact, a Daedroth and is locked behind a door (fortunately for the Nerevarine, however, Molag Bal gave them a key to open it). Once Menta Na has been killed, the Nerevarine must return to Molag Bal for their reward, the Mace of Molag Bal.

Journal[edit | edit source]

Molag Bal's Quest
ID Journal Entry
10 While in a Shrine to Molag Bal, the Daedric Prince spoke to me at the altar. He was angered, and I was afraid. His anger, however, was not directed at me, but rather toward one of his minions. Menta Na, a Daedroth Monarch, has grown lazy, and no longer does Molag Bal's bidding. If I kill Menta Na in his dungeon Kora-Dur, returning his soul to the Outer Realms where Molag Bal can punish him, then Molag Bal will reward me well.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The cave of Kora-Dur is fairly easy to miss.
    • It is, however, full of valuable items, including a Daedric Staff.
  • Menta Na is the only creature from which Daedra Skin can be obtained.
    • The Morrowind Patch Project modified this fact by enabling various other Daedra capable of dropping it.
