  • I was reading Katria's journal in Arkngthamz and it mentioned that she found all her information on the Aetherium Forge from a book in Mzund. I looked it up and all i got was the Visage of Mzund from the Dragonborn add-on. There's nothing else anywhere that mention's it's location or what's in it. Can anyone help?

    • When i found the Visage i asumed it was the name of a Dwemer but as you say Katria says it was a location she visited but there is no Dwemer ruin called Mzund you can actually go to.

    • I wonder if it could be in hammerfell?

    • It could have been in another province. Morrowind, maybe.

    • But it doesn't appear on the list of dwemer ruins. Not in Morrowind, not in Skyrim, not anywhere. And they don't list ruins from before Morrowind.

    • It could be one that is no longer open . . . collapsed completely and the sort?  It could easily be somewhere else, or one that she found and nobody else has, even?

    • It's strange because it's only mentioned in Dawnguard and Dragonborn. Nothing else in any other Elder Scrolls game or add-on even mentions it. It's like Rkund, you know it exists but it's still so mysterious.

    • TES's version of Loch Ness and Big Foot and Atlantis, lol.

      Keep in mind that there is more to the province of Morrowind that was shown in the game of the same name (which took place on Vvardenfell). Might be on the mainland, but it's just a theory.

    • But the mainland was playable with the Tribunal add-on.

        Loading editor
    • No the add-on Tribunal only added the city of Mournhold from the mainland.

    • Oh. Well still, how come it is only mentioned in 2 journals in Dawnguard and Dragonborn? There was no page for it until i created it myself, and that needs some help.

    • The journals and the name of the helmet are the only refrences there is no more information than that.

        Loading editor
    • Yes, but why is it like that? Where's the info?

    • I imagine that Bethesda wanted the ruin she found it in to be new and not one we would have had a chance of delving into at any point in the last three chapters.  Therefore it's a whole new Dwemer Ruin, that means they haven't physically created it yet and with the chick being a ghost, it's possible that she's old enough to have been the first in the ruin.  Although it's completely possible that anyone born in the Fourth Era has the ability to have been the first person in any Dwemer Ruin, as there are so many and they are quite expansive (sometimes even interconnecting as we have learned via Blackreach).  So in short, the info is nowhere at the moment.  Maybe we'll see it, and more references to it, in ESO.

    • Hopefully they do have it in ESO. It could have been a way of Bethesda showcasing one of the new Dwemer ruins they were going to addd in ESO.

    • Well, as Bethesda isn't making ESO, I'm going to guess at that being a flawed bit of logic.  I'm sure as it's now in canon as having existed somewhere, Zenimax has access to it and can put it in if they'd like, however.

    • It could be a lost dwemer ruin in Solstheim, that would explain why the Visage is there.

        Loading editor
    • That one's a little less likely, but it could be.  I wouldn't discount anything, to be honest.

    • What dwemer ruins appear in Arena?

        Loading editor
    • I can understand them adding it as kind of an easter egg, but the fact that there was no page for it and nowhere else does it even mention it at all.

        Loading editor
    • Like I said, it was most likely an attempt to ensure that you - the player - had never visited that ruin before.  If you had once traversed the dungeon then you would be able to argue that there was nothing there about the forge.  Making it a completely new one avoids that issue.  Making a new one that nobody has ever even heard of before, with no information elsewhere, just adds to the mystery of the Dwemer a little bit more.  So I say take it for what it is and let it roll of the back, lol.

    • I guess i'll just have to accept the fact that it doesn't exist, at least now it isn't completely unknown.

        Loading editor
    • Just doesn't exist in our currently accessible records, it's out there.  Be patient, young padawan . . . lol

    • Maybe it was destroyed and it's never been hear of since?

    • From Katria's journal she describes Mzund as an dwemer archive of sorts she mentions diagrams,maps, old texts. That she would find materials on the aetherium forge that would suggest key information regarding aetherium were transferred in secrecy to Mzund possibly for safe keeping and or preservation for posterity.

        Loading editor
    • Would Mzund be considered a holy archive by the dwemer? I mean if they went through all of the trouble tranporting everything they had about aetherium to Mzund in total secrecy. Was Katria sworn to secrecy about the location of Mzund in life and in death? So much do she never mentions it's location. Could she have asked the last living dwemer it's location and he made her swear not to reveal Mzunds exact location?

    • I dought it was a holy archive, the dwemer didn't really do religion.
