The right dialogue choices for the elders:

Elder Elsaril:

  • I'm so sorry, but I've seen the daedric anchors. Thousands have already died. You must believe me.

Elder Inril:

  • My lady, Coldharbour's chains rip through Nirn. Valenwook will be destroyed unless we do something.

Elder Gluin:

  • Lose the attitude and listen well. I've seen the anchors. They're destroying Nirn!

Elder Erthor:

  • I see how well that's worked out so far. What's a few hundred years when you're having fun, right?
