Detailed Walkthrough

Orders from Caius
Returning to Caius Cosades in Balmora after your journey to the Urshilaku Camp yeilds you a task to raid and wipe out a Sixth House base near Gnaar Mok, in particular to kill the priest Dagoth Gares. Since Caius doesn't know the exact location, you are to report to Raesa Pullia in Fort Buckmoth.

Report from Raesa
Fort Buckmoth is just South of Ald'Ruhn and the quickest way is by Silt Strider. Raesa is just inside the main fort interior entrance. She gives you the report on the Sixth House base they discovered. Apparently, of the original scouting party, only one person returned, dying shortly thereafter from a horrible Corprus Disease. The trooper mentioned a cavern on the coast named Ilunibi. Though Raesa is not familiar with this name, she suggests asking the locals in Gnaar Mok about it. If you haven't been to Gnaar Mok yet, its on the West coast of the island, South West of Ald'ruhn. Raesa does give instructions on how to walk there (though they are not copied to your journal so take notes if you need to). There's only boat travel to Gnaar Mok so the fastest method is probably just to hike it from Ald'ruhn (or Caldera). The village is marked on your world map, so just keep checking it often.

Rumours in Gnaar Mok
Once you get to Gnaar Mok, talk to just about anyone to find out information on the Ilunibi cavern (you may need to raise their disposition to 50 or higher to get the information). You find out that the caverns are location on the North end of the island, on Khartag Point (otherwise called a big rock). You should have Khartag Point marked on your mark when you ask about it, just a little North West of the village. You should find the caverns named as Ilunibi, Carcass of the Saint (qaint little name).

Ilunibi Caverns
[Ilunibi Caverns, 532x782 (27 kb)]
Ilunibi Caverns

Just inside the entrance to Ilunibi you'll find a very nice little waterfall. It gets much worse just farther in however. Expect to encounter Ash Slaves, Dreamers, Bonewalkers, and Scamps here, though some of these may change depending on your level. Dreamers and not too tough, but watch out for the spells of the Ash Slaves (dodge em till they run out) and the draining spells of the Bonewalker (annoying). Once you get into the Soul's Rattle section of the caverns, you should encounter Dagoth Gares. He will initiate conversation with you and you should try and get as much information as you can before you exit, he says some interesting things. Gares is tough, cast spells and hits pretty hard, but doesn't take too many big hits before he goes down. The bad part is that when he dies, he curses you with the Corprus disease (don't worry, you can get it cured). Evidently this fulfills a part of the Nerevarine prophecies. After killing Gares, don't forget to loot the bell chamber nearby as it has some glass boots and a pair of excellant heavy gauntlets (Fists of Randagul, 150 armour, Fortify Agility and Strength by 20, constant effect). Note that the empty cavern beyond the pile of stones next to the bell chamber is empty and doesn't appear to serve any useful purpose (strange though).

NOTE: If you kill Gares and do not receive the Corprus disease, you can correct this on the PC version of the game by opening the console (~ tilde key) and entering the commands:

		player->AddSpell "Corprus"
		Journal A2_2_6thHouse 50
This bug is rare but has occurred to a number of people.

Return to Caius
Once you've finished in the caverns, head back to Caius in Balmora (walk to Caldera to East of Gnaar Mok and take a Strider, or walk a little farther to Balmora South-East of Gnaar Mok). Upon your return, you will be promoted to Traveller.

Continue on with the Cure for Corprus portion of the main quest or return to the Main Quest page.
