An Argonian named Onuja has come to Othrenis. He wants to know how to rebind the Brother of Strife. He's hoping to contact the spirit of Mavos Siloreth, an ancient Dunmer scribe buried in the area.

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Talk to Onuja to begin the quest
  2. Chant at the Shrines of Veneration and Rejuvination
  3. Talk to Onuja
  4. Chant at the central brazier
  5. Survive the ghosts
  6. Talk to Onuja
  7. Talk to Mavos Siloreth

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Just outside Othrenis, there crouches an Argonian named Onjua. He can't get into the necropolis himself, as he fears the various skeletons (mostly archers and warriors), and so asks the player to go in his stead. He beleives Othrenis contains knowledge that will aid in the recapture of Balreth. To gain this knowledge, the spirit of a powerful mage must be summoned. Onuja insists humility is paramount in this exercise.

Chant at the Two Shrines[edit]

First, the player must go to the Shrines of Veneration and Reverence, and chant at each. The Shrine of Veneration is to the east of the entrance; the Shrine of Reverence to the west. Chanting is done simply by activating the shrines. Once completed, talk to Onuja again.

Chant at the Central Brazier[edit]

Now the player must honour Mavos at the large brazier in the centre of Othrenis. Onuja warns that "the dead may want your blood" for disturbing a highborn, which in fact means the player will be attacked by three ghosts as soon as they finish the chant. As soon as the player is done chanting, Mavos can be heard yelling "Who disturbs my rest?" and the ghosts will attack. They do so one at a time, so it isn't an overwhelming swarm.

With all three ghosts defeated, return Onuja, who will declare that Mavos has returned.

Talk to Mavos Siloreth[edit]

Mavos' tomb is the largest crypt, directly opposite the entrance to the necropolis and up two flights of stairs. After he's threatened the player's mortal form, inform him that Balreth has risen to earn his ire. He'll agree that he must help, and promise "no deathworms for you yet". Here, the quest is completed and, after a little more dialogue, Rending Flames begun.


It is possible to begin and complete this quest before Mystery of Othrenis.
