The Covenant needs help in the Imperial City
The Daggerfall Covenant is locked in an epic struggle for control of the Imperial City. The forces of Molag Bal hold the city in an iron grip, but enemy bannermen also vie for power. The Covenant needs my help.


Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. (Optional) Talk to Captain Durida at the Southern High Rock Gate or Captain Alesace at the Northern High Rock Gate, or receive quest through the Collections tab.
  2. Enter the Imperial City and talk to General Aklash.
  3. Speak with the Drake of Blades.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Either speak directly with General Aklash in the Imperial City Sewers, or get sent to her by way of conversation with Captain Durida or Captain Alesace at one of the alliance gates in Cyrodiil. She will inform you that the three alliances have made it into the Imperial City and the Covenant needs your help to capture it. Offering little in the way of advice, she simply tells you to "start swinging" and sends you on your way. Helpfully, the last thing she mentions is that a woman known as the Drake of Blades is here in the sewers and that you should speak with her.

Make your way down the narrow corridors to where the Drake of Blades is resting against a wall. She does not make a sparkling first impression, but nonetheless needs your help to fight against Molag Bal here in the city. Utilizing the covert travelways put into place by alliance soldiers all over, above and below ground, she suggests that the two of you work towards that goal together.
