One of the nicer (loot-wise) locations around for Alchemy equipment. The downside is that there are 2 or 3 spots in the dungeon where you will be fighting 4+ casters / monsters at the same time. Make sure that you have Silence + Damage poisons and that you are well stocked with healing potions. Snabbik 17:44, 20 May 2007 (EDT)

I don't know if it's just chance, but evertime i looted this cave the boss chest wher eyou have to go underwater always gave me a piece of alchemy equipment. Sometimes it was master, other times it wasn't. What makes raiding this cave really easy is to enchant a couple pieces to get 100% chameleon and then the rest of your equipment enchanted with fortify speed. then you can just zip in and out and if you don't find what you like, then just reload! I made one of my potions with 70s of night eye and i could go in, clear all 3 boss chests, and get out with night-eye still on! so just keep trying. it took me about 45 min to get all 4 pieces. — Unsigned comment by (talk) on December 13 2009
Is it worth mentioning that if you go through the back door of the ruins that lead out of zone 3, theres a boss chest right in front of you. If you save and keep going in you have easy access to the best place the find alchemy equipment. Just like the blind moth tactic only for potion makers. --SamGhadiali 01:56, 15 July 2010 (UTC)

Welkynd Stones[edit]

The Unofficial Oblivion Patch (UOP) caused the Welkynd stone on the floor in Ceyatatar Gorihame to disappear. Is it just me or has anyone else encountered the same problem? I loaded up the construction set and saw only 4 Welkynd Stones in the third zone with the UOP, but saw 5 when I did not load the UOP. — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 08:06 on 4 May 2008

As of 1 July 2013, using the Unofficial Oblivion Patch version (3.4.3), I encountered all 5 Welkynd Stones at their intended locations in Ceyatatar Gorihame. AquaticPossum (talk) 14:42, 2 July 2013 (GMT)


Maybe the ceyatatar on the map doesn't bear much resemblance with glories and laments because there is a caved in corridor in the room with the magnus statue, could it be that that corridor leads to the main plaza described in the book? — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 20:12 on 16 June 2008

Spider Queen[edit]

what's up with the staff and shrine of the spider queen? you get a "use" command when you mouse over the staff (can't pick it up :/), but neither is mentioned in the article. wish there was some back story for that. — Unsigned comment by (talk) on 26 July 2008

No idea. Perhaps because there are no such items located in Ceyatatar, or anywhere in vanilla Oblivion for that matter. The game contains no "spider queen" items (shrines, staves, or anything else). If you're finding spider queen items, then you've got a third party mod installed that is responsible for the items, so you shouldn't be surprised that your mod's items are not documented here. --NepheleTalk 19:47, 26 July 2008 (EDT)
I'm having the same problem with the Staff of the Spider Queen. And yes I believe it's a mod. Probably Armammentarium.— Unsigned comment by (talk) on 30 April 2009
It is the Armamentarium sub quest. To find out how to get access, go to A Fighting Chance and talk to the old man in the corner. Pueblonative 16:34, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

problems with zone 3[edit]

I clear this ruin fairly frequently. On two separate occasions, the third zone wouldn't load for me (it just gets stuck at the loading screen). Doesn't matter if I approach it from zone 2, or from the trapdoor entrance on the main map. It won't load, as if the cell has been corrupted or something. Since I like to run through this ruin often, this has forced me to reload earlier saves from when I was still able to enter. It's one hell of a nuisance and I'm losing progress just to be able to keep this area open to me.

I'm trying to ascertain what might be the cause of this. I'm wondering if it might have something to do with the state I leave the zone in prior to leaving. If it has something to do with whether the gates inside the room are left open or closed as I leave, or something of that nature. — Unsigned comment by (talk) on 20:05 9 June 2010
