The Sublime Brazier
Finishes Quest Journal Entry
Before we enter the Dragonfire Cathedral, I must retrieve a message from our unlikely ally, The Rat. According to the Drake of Blades, it may provide some vital information about Molag Bal's plans.
Objective: Find The Rat's Message
I have The Rat's message. I must return to the Drake of Blades to finalize our plans for defending the Sublime Brazier.
Objective: Talk to the Drake of Blades
The Drake of Blades has decided to become the Sublime Brazier's immortal guardian. We must go to the Dragonfire Cathedral, buried deep beneath Imperial City, and perform a ritual to complete the Drake's transformation.
Objective: Travel to the Dragonfire Cathedral
We've reached a large cave beneath Imperial City containing the Dragonfire Cathedral. I must follow the Drake of Blades, Father Egnatius, and Captain Caudex inside to perform the ritual.
Objective: Follow The Drake of Blades into the Cathedral
Objective: Watch Father Egnatius Prepare the Ritual
Father Egnatius has begun the ritual to imbue The [sic] Drake of Blades with Akatosh's power, but the Dragonfire Cathedral is under assault by the forces of Molag Bal. I must hold them off until Egnatius completes the ritual.
Objective: Go to the Siege Platform
Captain Caudex set up siege weapons to allow me to defend Dragonfire Cathedral's barricades against invading Daedra. I must hold them off long enough for Father Egnatius to complete the ritual.

Objective: Talk to The Drake of Blades
