- Collect ash from an ash spawn
- Talk to Neloth
Speak to Neloth and ask if he needs help with his research:
Can I help with your research? "Hmm. I do have a new spell I'm working on. I hope to be able to conjure ash spawn. If I could get a sample of ash from an ash spawn, that would be quite useful. I've made this special tool that will extract... well, you don't need to know the details. Just go harvest a sample. Of course, the creature will have to be dead first, but I trust that's something you can... bring about."
He gives the Dragonborn an Ash Extractor to collect the ash from an Ash Spawn. Ash spawn can be found all across the ash wastes of Solstheim. Several can be found in Raven Rock Temple or near Hrodulf's House. Once an ash spawn has been killed, activate the ash pile and collect a sample.

- Despite mentioning that it will take a day or two to create the spell, Talvas should have a spell tome for sale immediately after the quest has been completed.
- Sometimes the amount of gold given upon the quest's completion does not correspond with the Dragonborn's level.
- Sometimes when the Dragonborn slays the ash spawn, it may not die but instead just freeze in mid-air.
