Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

Razum-dar informs the Vestige that the portals to the Deadlands, a realm of Daedric Prince Mehrunes Dagon, are still open. The Vestige must enter the portals, find Sigil Stones and destroy them. All three of them lead to the same place, called The Refuge of Dread.

The first portal is just behind them, before the gates leading to Firsthold Courtyard. To get to the Sigil Stone, one has to light four braziers. The barrier keeping the Stone safe will dissolve. After destroying the Sigil Stone, the Vestige will appear in front of, now destroyed, Oblivion Gate.

The next two portals are inside the courtyard. One of them is on the eastern side, the other on western. No matter which is taken first, the Vestige will have to fight their way to them. On the eastern one, the Vestige will have to survive through fire traps and fight some Mezelukhebruz before they can get to the Sigil Stone. After the stone has been destroyed, the Vestige will once again, reappear in front of the portal. In the western portal, the Vestige will just have to fight Daedra to get to the Stone. This Stone will be guarded by a Daedra named Marrow who has to be defeated in order to destroy the Sigil Stone. The Vestige will reappear in front of the portal once the Stone has been destroyed.

Now, the Vestige must find Razum-dar. He can be found near Firsthold Castle's entrance. Inside, Battlereeve Urcelmo and Sinien are already waiting for them, in front of a last Oblivion Gate. High Kinlady Estre will be waiting for them there. She must be defeated. She will summon Fire Atronach's to shield herself. They must be destroyed to prevent that. After defeating her, the final Sigil Stone can be destroyed.

After returning to Tamriel, Razum-dar will mention that Queen Ayrenn herself has arrived and the Vestige should report to her. Queen Ayrenn will reward the Vestige.
