The Shrine to Peryite is located in the Reach, far to the northeast of Markarth. It is directly southwest of Dragontooth Crater and Harmugstahl, and northwest of Karthwasten and Karthspire.


The Only Cure[]

Upon approaching the shrine a Khajiit named Kesh the Clean lists what materials are needed to speak to Peryite, starting the quest.

After the items are collected, Kesh puts them into a Dwemer incense burner in the shrine and after inhaling the fumes the Dragonborn can speak to Peryite.


Notable item[]

Alchemy ingredients[]


  • Druadach Dwemer Pavilion: There are some Dwemer ruins very close to the shrine, guarded by a Wispmother.
  • Unlike most Daedric Shrines, the Shrine to Peryite does not give the Dragonborn a visual representation of the Daedric Prince, unlike in Oblivion, in which a Dragon-like figure is seen. During the conversation with Peryite however, apparitions of skeevers may appear. These could represent Peryite's familiars, his own conduit on the mortal plane, or possibly just hallucinations from the fumes.
  • Totem to Peryite: Behind the shrine to the southeast, at the bottom of the mountain are the "roots" of the shrine. A chest containing random loot, a dead Wood Elf and a random enchanted dagger are next to the pillar depicting Peryite, similar to the pillars found in Bthardamz. There is also a chest containing leveled loot and the Illusion skill book Incident at Necrom.

  •  PS3   Getting close to the Shrine of Peryite with a horse and dismounting may cause the horse to teleport a long distance away, killing it by fall damage. This may also cause the game to crash.
  • The vampire dust may turn into a flawless ruby.
  •  PS3   After offering the four items, the quest will not update properly, and Kesh the Clean will still expect the items to be delivered to him. There will be no dialogue anymore to further the quest, even if the items are gathered a second time. Reproduced with PS3 patch
  • A dead Hagraven may spawn at the center of the shrine.
  •  PC   Exiting the dialogue with Peryite before finishing the conversation may cause the game to still consider the player still in the dialogue. The player cannot move and the dialogue cannot be re-activated.
  •  PC   The dialogue never happens and can not be forced, turning Kesh the Clean into a normal character and making the mission inaccessible.
