Safa al-Satakalaam, a priest of Satakal, is at odds with the Scaled Court. Three of her most powerful acolytes have deserted her to worship the Celestial Serpent. She wants me to punish these traitors and deny their power to the Scaled Court.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

On the upper floor of Dragonstar inn there is a woman called Safa al-Satakalaam who offers you "a dangerous but very profitable" task. Safa belongs to a cult called Satakal, however, three of her acolytes have left their old cult and joined the Scaled Court instead. Your task will be to find the cultists and punish them accordingly. The cultists are spread out along the southern parts of Upper Craglorn.

The Three Acolytes[edit]

Raziyya can be found on the southern side of Skyreach Catacombs - you may have to take the road up to the Catacombs and then jump over a few rocks, then fight through a small plateau of independent Scaled Court cultists to reach her - surrounded by a group of Scaled Court cultists. She is an assassin-type fighter, using stealth, and will summon waves of Scaled Court members to assist her.

Mazaluhad is found west of Valley of Scars Wayshrine, across the narrow river. He is conversing with Regent Soteras about the new recruits. You will have to fight them both, plus the assisting cultists. While Mazaluhad is fighting in melee, Soteras is a caster. Mazaluhad has more health than his friend, but is more likely to die first simply because he getsin your way and keeps the heat off his ally.

Anyaq can be found northeast of Valley of Scars Wayshrine, near the road running through Iron Orc Nirncrux Mines. He is manipulating a storm atronach, Zymel Ozarus, who will assist him in combat. Beware the atronach's strong lightning attacks. If you concentrate on killing Zymel Ozarus first, it will die before its master.

When you have defeated all three acolyte deserters, return to Safa to inform her that you have completed the task. She comments on you looking unexpectedly healthy after such a difficult task, and concludes that perhaps she might need to train her acolytes more diligently.


  • All the bosses encountered as part of the quest - Mazaluhad, Raziyya, Anyaq (and their allies, Regent Soteras and Zymel Ozarus) - have a difficulty level of 2. This makes the quest a difficult, but manageable solo experience for a powerful character, the quest's designation as a group quest notwithstanding. Raziyya, the only one without a boss-level friend, is the only one who summons extras during the fight.

  • Not all Journal Entries may appear in your journal; which entries appear and which entries do not depends on the manner in which the quest is done.
  • Stages are not always in order of progress. This is usually the case with quests that have multiple possible outcomes or quests where certain tasks may be done in any order. Some stages may therefore repeat objectives seen in other stages.
