Warn Keeper Uxith-Ei at the Hatching Pools
Haj-Meht overheard Dominion soldiers brag of capturing the Hatching Pools, where Argonian children in Shadowfen are born.

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Talk to Haj-Meht at Loriasel.
  2. Talk to Keeper Uxith-Ei at the Hatching Pools.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

When you arrive at Loriasel, you'll find a soldier named Haj-Meht. He urges you to speak with him. He says that he overheard some Dominion soldiers saying that they captured the Hatching Pools, a place where Argonians are born. Haj-Meht can't leave, as he's waiting for a contingent of soldiers to arrive with reinforcements. He asks you to go to the Hatching Pools and aid Keeper Uxith-Ei if he's still alive. The rites he performs are vital to the Argonian people, and he's worried about what the Dominion might do there.

Head east back towards the Hatching Pools. Head north up the path when you reach the fork in the road near Alten Corimont, then descend the stairs of the great xanmeer. Speak with Keeper Uxith-Ei on the xanmeer and offer him your aid. He will reward you with a small sum for your kindness.


  • This quest is only offered if you have not yet started Keepers of the Shell. You must also not have Cracking the Egg in your quest journal in order for Haj-Meht to appear at Loriasel.

* 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.
