Detailed Walkthrough

Speak once again to Lady Almalexia in the Temple who now belives that you are the Nerevarine (I assume that you'll receive a different message if you haven't finished the Morrowind main quest or perhaps you won't receive this quest at all). She tells you to story of two blades, Hopesfire and Trueflame. Hopesfire has been kept safe with the goddess, however its twin blade was lost at the battle of Red Mountain. The blade was shattered into three pieces, one of which Almalexia gives to you, and the other two which you much find in order to complete the blade. The goddess suggests asking around those knowledgable in the city for further guidance in finding the blade pieces and having them reforged.

Searching for a Craftsman
Finding the craftsman to forge the three pieces is relatively easily. Most people will point you in the direction of Yagak gro-Gluk in the Craftsman Hall of Godsreach. Yagak glady volunteers to combine the pieces but has no information about the location of the remaining two.

Searching for the Pieces
Finding someone who knows about the pieces is difficult, but remember Almalexia's hint a speaking to people you've used for guidance before. Queen Barenziah is one of those people and directs you to speak with Karod, Helseth's bodyguard which you defeated earlier in a duel. Indeed, speak with Karod about the blade pieces and he'll actually give you one which his father handed down to him when he was young.

Note that you must have previously completed the Assassination Plot quests and duel him, otherwise you won't get anywhere with him (confirmed with the XBox GOTY edition).

Artifact Museum
Next, speak with Torasa Aram in the Museum of Artifacts in the Godsreach district. Though she says she doesn't have the third piece though she does have a shield from the same period which can be part with if you make some artifact donations to the museum. You will have to donate two artifacts to the museum and you can read the book lying the on the bench on the South wall of the museum entrance to see which ones you can donate.

Thats quite the list, unfortunately, you've probably left or sold most of these back on the island of Vvardenfell or, if you do have any of them, you are most likely using them. With any two donations you can receive the Dwemer Battle Shield (regular item). Torasa mentions that the spike on the front of the shield is loose but that most smiths would be able to repair it.

Note that when you donate or sell an item to the museum it goes on display and appears on one of those pedestals. A master thief will have no problems reacquiring artifacts once they are sold or donated (hehe), though you cannot redonate or sell an item back to her. If you've sold all the artifacts already, see the cheat section at the bottom of the page for more info.

Forging the Blade
Return to Yagak gro-Gluk in the Craftsman Hall of Godsreach with your three items (Odd Dwemer Weapon, Dwemer Battle Shield, and Broken Dwemer Blade Piece). Talk to him about the Dwemer Battle shield and he'll seperate the third blade piece from the otherwise regular Dwemer shield. Then talk to him about forging the blade and he'll take the three broken blade pieces and tell you to come back in two days. Indeed, after two days he'll give you the finished blade though without any enchantments on it (he says to see a Dwemer if you want it enchanted). The blade's statistics are:

	Chop: 15 to 60
	Slash: 40 to 50
	Thrust: 3 to 30
	Condition: 2000/2000
	Weight: 20.0
	Value: 15000

Enchanting the Blade
Now you have to enchant the blade, as Yagak had mentioned. If you pester Yagak further and ask him about the talk to a Dwemer topic, he'll suggest that you return to Bamz-Amschend. If you return to Almalexia at this point, she will tell you to return to the one who forged the blade to get it enchanted. Follow Yagak's advice and re-enter the Dwemer ruins. You'll want to travel back to Radac's Forge and find the ghost of Radas Stungnthumz now wandering the middle-East area next to the large robot. Radac will tell you to return to him some Pyroil Tar in order to enchant the blade. The Tar can be found deep within the Daedric Shrine of Norenen-dur in the Citadel of Myn Dhrur (or, if you're like me you'll have to return to town to buy it back from the merchants). There are three Pyroil Tar's that you can find and any will work.
  1. One carried by the Dremora Lord Lord Kash, in Norenen-dur, Citadel of Myn Dhrur.
  2. Two sitting at the bottom of the waterfall in Norenen-dur, the Wailingdelve.
Return to Radac with the Tar and he'll enchant the blade for you.

	Chop: 20 to 75
	Slash: 45 to 60
	Thrust: 4 to 40
	Condition: 2000/2000
	Weight: 20.0
	Value: 150000
	Cast When Strikes
	Fire Damage 30 pts in 1 ft
	Charge: 100/100
This is probably one of the better weapons that you can get in the game.

Return to Almalexia
Return to Almalexia to receive her congratulations for reforging the blade. Speak with her again to receive the next quest.

Artifact Museum Cheats
If you've already sold all your artifacts to the Museum before this point, you can cheat and steal some back and donate them in order to continue. I thought you might be able to steal the items back and give them to her again...but you can't (she doesn't like it, hehe). Open the console and enter the command:
