Shrine of Talos: Sea of Ghosts is an unmarked location found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


This unmarked location is near two other locations: Trius' Camp to the south and Pilgrim's Trench to the southwest. The path to the shrine is behind the statue of Talos. A satchel, a leveled weapon, and a skill book are located here.

Notable itemsEdit


Forgotten NamesEdit

Velehk Sain is a Dremora bound to a Daedric Relic in The Midden beneath the College of Winterhold. If the decision is made to release him, he will provide a map to his treasure. The treasure will not appear until he has been encountered, nor will it appear if he is killed instead of freed.

The map is very misleading. Once at water level, head directly west from the College of Winterhold to a rather flat peninsula that appears to have a path going up it. Walking to either side all the way around the peninsula will reveal a large statue of Talos, and below that on the ground should be the treasure. The peninsula is just southwest of Ysgramor's Tomb. Another way to find the treasure is to stand by the beached rowboat at Pilgrim's Trench and look southeast.
