The Dark Elves of Morrowind have five Great Houses. Once, long ago, there was another... but it has been erased from official histories, and no one dares speak its name.
Forgotten Wastes

The Forgotten Wastes are a public dungeon found on the northern coast of Vvardenfell.

A large force of cultists from the forsaken Sixth House inhabit this location, where they are in the process of slowly building up their forces, by luring Dunmer from across the island to the ruins via corrupted statuettes.

The dungeon is divided into several sections: a large overland area containing the stronghold of Kogoruhn, the Drinith Ancestral Tomb, the cave of Kora Dur, the Forgotten Depths, and the Caverns of Kogoruhn.

Enemies in this zone rarely drop the seven parts of the Sixth House Robe costume.

  • This location appears in Morrowind as three separate locations: Drinith Ancestral Tomb, Kogoruhn, and Kora-Dur.
  • The Forgotten Wastes are mentioned in The Official Survival Guide to Tamriel.
  • To solve the Sixth House bell puzzle, you must spell the word "DREAMS" out of the Daedric tiles. From left to right, the letters are as follows: D-R-A-E-S-M.
  • In the outdoors section of the public dungeon, groups of cliff striders will often swoop down from nearby cliffs to ambush you after you are done defeating groups of enemies.
  • In the area around Kogoruhn, Red Mountain can be seen spewing balls of fire constantly. These are in actuality flame atronachs and if they land near you, they come alive and attack you. You are also damaged if they land on you.
  • Swinging blade traps can activate while you navigate through the ancestral tomb. Crouching doesn't reveal them so be wary as you move around the halls.
  • In the tunnels of Kora Dur, rock falls are triggered by the rumbling of Red Mountain. If you are hit by them, you are stunned and take damage.
