I received a letter from Lady Arabelle Davaux, asking me to meet her agent, Jakarn, in Elden Root, Wayrest, or Mournhold, depending on my alliance. She wants me to assist him in a matter of great importance to all of the alliances.

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

  • Get the quest from the Quest Starters link in the crown store menu.
  • Go to your Alliance capital and meet Jakarn, whom you may know from the Daggerfall Covenant quest line. He is near the Guild Traders in Wayrest: just inside the gates of the Altmer Embassy in Elden Root, near the Undaunted Enclave: or just outside the southeastern gate of Mournhold, near Rolis Hlaalu's master writ area. If you are in the wrong faction's capital city, Jakarn will not be present.
  • He is working on behalf of Lady Arabelle of the Society of the Steadfast, and his job is to track down a missing mage of the Guild, an Altmer named Valessea (whom he seems to be seriously enamoured of, and believes she shares his sentiments), and five medallions which apparently serve as an invitation to a meeting.
  • His cart will take you direct to a delve in Vvardenfell, which may be Zainsipilu (from Wayrest), Pulk (from Elden Root) or Khartag Point (from Mournhold): where you will meet a contact of his outside the delve, named Tarazka. However, you're not limited to the delve the cart takes you to. Regardless of your alliance, you can meet Jakarn and Tarazka outside any of the three delves.
    • Note that you will need the Morrowind Chapter to access these Delves: however it is now available permanently for free, in the Crown Store, and in any case is now usually sold bundled in with the main game, so only really old accounts who never purchased the DLC will need to acquire it for free.
  • Enter the delve and follow the trail of clues and notes to the Ascendant Order Hideout. The Hideout is the same zone regardless of which delve you approach it from.
  • Find Valessea in the hideout, discover that the medallions are not there, find and read the note saying where they've gone, and exit the hideout by the underground boat at its opposite end.
  • Exiting at a point in northwest Morrowind and make your way to nearby Sareloth Grotto - an unmarked point except for its quest arrow - and enter.
  • Find the five medallions with the help of Valessea's shell amulet, overhear an Ascendant Champion giving orders, and escape to mysteriously find yourself a lot further south, not far from Balmora.
  • Make your way to Lady Arabelle's camp (also unmarked except for the quest arrow), just east of Vivec City.

The marker to the stolen medallions, inside the Sareloth Grotto, can some times disappear before you get the chance to take the medallion, this might happen if you are busy fighting mobs.
To fix this, you have to log out and log in again. This will give you a new chance to use Valessea's Shell to locate the coffer where the stolen medallion is.

* Any text displayed in angle brackets (e.g., <Alias=LocationHold>) is dynamically set by the game and will be filled in with the appropriate word(s) when seen in game.
  • 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.
