The Gray Passage is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls Online. It involves the Vestige going on a pilgrimage to gain the favor of the Stars. It is a timed quest, and the Vestige has exactly two hours to complete it.

Background[edit | edit source]

I found a book describing an ancient Nedic hero named Ranev the Coal-Eyed Wanderer and her legendary pilgrimage along "The Gray Passage." According to the text, those who complete the pilgrimage in the allotted time gain the favor of the Stars.
I need to travel to Gray Menhir, located to the southwest of Dragonstar, and prepare for my pilgrimage.

Quick walkthrough[edit | edit source]

  1. Read The Raneviad, Volume II
  2. Visit the Gray Mehnir
  3. Visit six prayer markers within Craglorn's caves and tombs to learn the six virtues
  4. Return to the Gray Menhir

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

Gray Passage.png The Vestige will be first introduced to Ranev when reading the book The Raneviad, Volume II, which tells a tale about Ranev the Coal-Eyed Wanderer, a Nedic hero who sought to honor ancient heroes. To do so, she traveled to the Stone of Hosiven. There, she discovered Grey Mehnir, a giant standing stone. While still amazed by its size, words started appearing in it:

Heed the Stars, O pilgrim, and undertake their quest. Seek their six virtues, hewn into stone. Bear each command with a noble heart and return with the utmost speed. For only the swift and the just shall receive celestial favor.

After reading the words carved into the rock before her, she swore to undertake the quest in order to gain the favor of the Stars.

After reading the book, the Vestige will be tasked with an identical quest; Visit Grey Mehnir and complete the pilgrimage. After reaching Grey Mehnir, the Vestige will have to visit six prayer markers, all located deep within Craglorn's most dangerous caves and tombs, they will have exactly two hours to do so.
