A wounded and poisoned Redguard needs help on behalf of the Fighters Guild
A Redguard warrior, Khud af-Hadajja, requested my help in destroying a Daedric device inside a mysterious doomvault before either the servants of Mephala or Mehrunes Dagon get their hands on it.

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Speak with Khud af-Hadajja and enter Doomvault Porcixid.
  2. Locate the body of Morgane and take her Sending Stone.
  3. Search the Doomvault for the Daedric device and destroy it.
  4. Exit the Doomvault and talk to Khud.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Approaching Doomvault Porcixid you'll find Khud af-Hadajja outside, wounded and poisoned. He will regale you with a sad tale of loss. His guildmate, Morgane, was killed while the two of them attempted to fulfill a Fighters Guild contract to destroy an unknown Daedric device. He asks you to find his partner's Sending Stone inside the vault so he can guide you through finding the device.

Inside, it can feel like a bit of a maze, if you're not paying close attention to the map, especially since the individual sub-zones were not given unique names in-game. You can see all the maps of the sub-zones at the Doomvault Porcixid page, here

First Room: Entryway[edit]

Head straight through the first room, a small entryway. (You will drop down into this room at the end of the quest.)

Second Room: Morgane Cavern[edit]

Retrieve the sending stone

This leads into a large cavern, where you'll find the body of Morgane. Search her for the sending stone and Khud will talk through it. Investigate a point in this cavern, then head straight west to exit this chamber through the door at the center west.

Third Room: Octagonal Room[edit]

Walk in and investigate a point inside the octagonal room. If you've already acquired the skyshard for this delve, then continue straight through to the west to reach Skyshard Cavern. If not, then walk right back out to the east, back to the Morgane cavern. Turn north and exit the Morgane cavern by the northwest exit to reach the L-Shaped Hallway.

Fourth Room: L-Shaped Hallway[edit]

Assuming you need to acquire the skyshard, this is the connecting hallway you'll encounter after exiting the Morgane cavern by the northwest exit. Simply traverse this hallway to reach the next large cavern.

Fifth Room: Skyshard Cavern[edit]

If you arrived here via the L-Shaped Hallway, carefully go around the corner to find the skyshard (drop down after finding the skyshard). Regardless, the next step is to head west through this skyshard cavern, staying along the north side. Keep an eye out for several Elite Enemies, including watchers and iron atronachs. At the west end, investigate a point, then turn south and head back to the east end of the map, staying along the south side. You'll find the exit at the southeast corner of the map.

Sixth Room: Boss and Machine[edit]

The Machine, at last!

You're now in the final sub-zone of the delve. Defeat Karzikon the Razorsworn and keep following the hall to reach The Machine. Talk to Khud again, then destroy The Machine by interacting with the controls on the west side of the platform. You will hear Mehrunes Dagon yell at you but ignore him and move north to find the drop-down that brings you back to the first room.

Head outside to talk with Khud to complete the quest.

"Welcome back, comrade. Did you … did you destroy the machine?"
Yes, I found and destroyed the Daedric device.
"Good. Good. I couldn't leave until I knew ….
You did well, comrade. Better than Morgane and I, at any rate. You would have liked her, I think. Hmm. Here's your pay. The Fighters Guild, and all of Blackwood, thank you for your efforts."

You will receive some gold and the Warped Oblivion Leggings for your efforts.

  • 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.
