Ebony Warrior[src]

The Ebony Warrior is a quest available after reaching level 80 with The Elder Scrolls V: Dragonborn installed in which the Dragonborn must defeat the Ebony Warrior who seeks a worthy challenge and wished to finally go to Sovngarde.

BackgroundEdit

A warrior in Ebony approached me. He has challenged me to fight him at his last vigil, wherever that is.

ObjectivesEdit

  1. Talk to the Ebony Warrior
  2. Meet the Ebony Warrior at the Last Vigil

WalkthroughEdit

The Ebony Warrior is an experienced Redguard warrior who approaches the Dragonborn when they reach level 80 and explains how he has defeated all types of foes and enemies, and his last objective is to be sent to Sovngarde by a worthy adversary.

Upon reaching level 80, the Ebony Warrior will usually seek out the Dragonborn at the first Hold entered. However, if that does not occur, possible locations for the Ebony Warrior on the holds are:

He will then approach the Dragonborn and issue a challenge. He requests them to meet him at the Last Vigil, a campsite located high in the Velothi Mountains.

"The time has come."
It has? What do you mean? "I have done all that can be done. There is nothing left. No quests to be undertaken. No villains to be slain. No challenges to face. Except for you. You are my last challenge. Only you can send me to Sovngarde with honor. Make your preparations. When you are ready, come find me at my last vigil."

If the Dragonborn travels to Last Vigil and meets the Ebony Warrior, he will be standing there waiting to fight. Combat is initiated after making the first strike. The quest completes when the Ebony Warrior is killed. Upon death, he will say, "At last, Sovngarde..."

The Ebony Warrior will not go down easily. His ebony armor provides a huge defensive boost and his ebony sword absorbs health, he can use Unrelenting Force, Restoration spells to recover health, casts Frost Cloak and Ebonyflesh to reduce physical damage and prevent close combat without risking losing stamina, and his ebony bow is enchanted to induce paralysis for several seconds. Suggested to use repeating fire or explosive attacks to take his health down exponentially.
