Assarnatamat is a shrine to Mehrunes Dagon on the Foyada Mamaea southeast of Caldera.

The shrine to Mehrunes Dagon within Assarnatamat

The shrine is located northeast of Balmora, just inside the Ashlands region. The outside is guarded by several leveled daedra. It is home to a couple of tough Daedra worshippers, including Thovasi Alen, who wears the Shoes of Sanguine Stalking needed for a Morag Tong quest. In addition to possessing the Shoes of Sanguine Stalking, Thovasi offers medium training services to anyone who can successfully calm her or sneak up on her. She trains Short Blade, Light Armor, and Sneak.

The Raw Ebony on the altar is cursed.

  • Assarnatamat is located at coordinates [0,0], the center of the game world. These coordinates are the default location for the game to spawn "lost" NPCs and creatures. If you use a Command spell to lure an NPC or creature into a different location, and then leave them there unattended for too long, they will occasionally end up at this shrine.
  • On certain unpatched versions of the game, if you drop an item while underwater, the item will also respawn at this location.
