Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Gerent Nuleem-Malem says you should tell Vicecanon Heita-Meen what the Dominion's alchemist, Ruuvitar, plan to do with the Mnemic Egg.

The Vicecanon is northwest of Loriasel, behind a camp. She explains the presence of lamias in the area—the Dominion stirred up their nests. You tell her that the Dominion plans to use the Egg to separate the Argonians from the Hist. She is horrified and asks you to search the camp for any sign of Ruuvitar's location while she rallies the soldiers to attack the ruins.

The Abandoned Camp[edit]

Ruuvitar's Journal is in a tent to the left. In the center of the camp, next to the cooking fire, is a dead Argonian prisoner. He is covered in a mixture of blood and sap, and it looks like the Dominion was experimenting on him, as he has "Subject 17" written on his shirt. To the right is a letter to Soldier Kazdi, a soldier who objected to the Dominion's treatment of the Argonian prisoners.

Next, you talk to Gerent Kepanuu. He says the Dominion retreated into the ruins. He suggests you find Ruuvitar, so you will be able to defeat the Dominion in one blow. Head east into the ruins to find the alchemist.

Loriasel[edit]

A Traitor or an Ally?[edit]

In the ruins, directly across from the entrance, although you will need to walk around the walk with the blue flame, and down the stairs, you find Kazdi, the reluctant Dominion soldier. Untie her, and she runs to the north end of the room.

Kazdi says Ruuvitar took the Egg behind the door and sealed it. Although she expected you to kill her, Kadzi will help you open the door. Ruuvitar often bragged about it, so she knows what to do.

Tell her you are going to keep her hands tied up, then talk to her again. You need to activate three Ayleid crystals.

Unsealing the Door[edit]

The first crystal is in the main room, south of Kazdi and the sealed door. Next, use the keystone holder south of the first crystal, next to the stairs. This unseals the door. If you do not have the keystone, or do not want to use it, you will need to fight through the ruins to locate the other crystals.

The Traitor's Fate[edit]

Talk to Vicecanon Heita-Meen at the newly unsealed door. You can decide Kazdi's fate by being lenient or telling the vicecanon to kill her. If you decide to be lenient, the vicecanon will ask you if you are sure. You can change your mind and let the vicecanon decide, ask for more time to decide, or tell the vicecanon Kazdi should not die.

Whatever your choice, the vicecanon will meet you later on to search for Ruuvitar. However, she wants to thank you now in case one of you dies.
