"The Eye of Talos was a fine ship, once. Now it lies wrecked off an island just north of here."
―Windhelm Guard

Wreck of The Pride of Tel Vos is the remains of a sunken ship, The Pride of Tel Vos. It is located East of Winterhold and West of The Serpent Stone. In the northern half of the ship at the waterline, there is waterlogged chest containing the quest item Lymdrenn Telvanni's Journal. Be careful, as there is a bear trap set just in front of it.

On the two small islands camps next to it is inhabited by a few bandits, there are also some spiky grass, two iron ore veins and a corundum ore vein.

Notable itemsEdit



  • The name of the ship is most likely named after the wizard tower Tel Vos on Vvardenfell.
  • Dialogue with Windhelm guards reveals the location is referred to by them as "The Eye of Talos." Despite this, the map marker to the shipwreck works as intended. Brand-Shei, however, will correctly call the shipwreck by its intended name.
  • The ship is mentioned by Windhelm guards, but it is actually located in Winterhold hold. Despite this, there is no dialogue about the ship from Winterhold guards.
