The Necromancer's Amulet is a quest in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Hannibal Traven is concerned because the Mages Council is in jeopardy. These two separate quests called the Necromancer's Amulet and The Bloodworm Helm must both be completed before advancing in the guild.
Traven says that two of the high-ranking members of the Council have left, taking two powerful artifacts with them. He is afraid that Mannimarco will find the mages, kill them, and take the artifacts, thereby gaining more power. He wants the artifacts safely recovered and brought back to the Arcane University. He is also highly concerned about Irlav Jarol and Caranya's fates.
Continue down to the Understreets and find Caranya. She mistakenly believes the Hero has joined her in helping Mannimarco take over Cyrodiil. She is now a necromancer and has taken many mages with her from the Mages Guild.
She will become hostile when the amulet is asked for. Kill her and take the Necromancer's Amulet. She prefers to use Frost spells and switches to Fire spells if Frost Shield, or other anti-frost methods, are used. She also summons Faded Wraiths. If she is becoming difficult to defeat, a long acting Silence spell or poison will leave her totally powerless, thus making her an easy kill. The other occupants of Fort Onus also become hostile at this point. After killing them and retrieving the amulet, return to Traven.
The Necromancer's Amulet:
I need to travel to Fort Ontus to retrieve the Necromancer's Amulet, and return it to the Imperial City.
I've arrived at Fort Ontus. I need to find Caranya, and get the Necromancer's Amulet from her.
Caranya was a traitor to the Mages Guild and intended to deliver the Amulet to the King of Worms. I need to get out of Fort Ontus and take the Amulet back to the Arcane University.
I've delivered the Necromancer's Amulet to Hannibal Traven.
- If the Thieves Guild quest "Misdirection" is active, the blood price for killing while helping the Thieves Guild must be paid.
This section contains bugs related to The Necromancer's Amulet. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:
- Caranya may have two copies of the amulet. Returning to Traven removes both from inventory and since it is a quest item, one of the two cannot be dropped in order to keep it.
