Norenen-dur is a Daedric shrine beneath Bamz-Amschend in The Elder Scrolls III: Tribunal. It is deep underground below the hidden Dwemer ruin which can only be entered from Plaza Brindisi Dorom in Mournhold. It is one of the four places in which Adamantium Ore can be found.
Sublocations[edit | edit source]
The Grand Stair[edit | edit source]
The Grand Stair is a giant stairway which seems to lead nowhere. There is only a single large chamber which is dominated by the stairs and several Undead. There is nothing else here for the Nerevarine.
The Teeth that Gnash[edit | edit source]
The Teeth that Gnash is a large chamber with a very high ceiling inside the Daedric ruin. The chamber has two very tall spires which each have paths spiraling around the exterior allowing for passage to the very top, but there is nothing found once there. This chamber is however one of the few places where Adamantium Ore can be found. The Nerevarine must pass through here to reach the Citadel of Myn Dhrur during the quest "The Blade of Nerevar" but otherwise there is nothing else of note.
Citadel of Myn Dhrur[edit | edit source]
Citadel of Myn Dhrur is a large partially flooded chamber. This is the home of Khash-Ti Dhrur, a unique dremora lord who has in his possession a vital item the Nerevarine requires. Besides Khash-Ti there are other powerful creatures found here but no loose treasure to be had. There are doors here which lead to The Wailingdelve and the Basilica of Divine Whispers. The door to the Wailingdelve is near the high ceiling close to the entrance from The Teeth that Gnash and the door to the Basilica of Divine Whispers is on the western wall near the water's edge.
Basilica of Divine Whispers[edit | edit source]
The entire chamber is dotted with giant statues of the various Daedric Princes worshiped throughout Morrowind. There are also three Atronachs residing here, generally close to the entrance. Apart from this, there is nothing else for the Nerevarine here.
The Wailingdelve[edit | edit source]
The Wailingdelve is a uniquely shaped chamber inside the Daedric shrine of Norenen-dur. It is essentially a chasm carved by a very high waterfall with a deep pool at the base. There are no enemies here, only treasure. The only way out is back at the top of the falls which can only be reached by flight or Levitation.
