The Tower Sentinels is the fourth quest of the main quest available in The Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset.


The Sea Sload altered the Ritemaster's memories and forced him to steal the Heart of Transparent Law and hide it away. While he works to unlock his memories, he wants Valsirenn and I to warn the keepers of the Crystal Tower, the Sapiarchs.
