Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Talk to Lieutenant Belron.
  2. Defeat Calix Thorntongue and take his Rotting Heart.
  3. Talk to Belron.
  4. Collect Kraig's Heart, Odanach's Heart and Uracaile's Heart.
  5. Talk to Belron back at the camp.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Continue talking to Dajaheel after turning in the previous quest. Belron left the camp muttering about further research. Dajaheel asks you to find him and help him in any way you can.

Belron is to the west, kneeling next to some vines. Up ahead, three graveghasts are channeling a spell into a ritual circle with a figure lying in the middle. He says the skeletons keeping repeating the name "Calix Thorntongue". Belron speculates that this "Thorntongue" is in the ritual circle. He asks you to kill Calix Thorntongue and bring back his heart. An undead entity's heart is often an epicenter for necromantic energy, and with Calix's heart, Belron can learn more about what the Worms are doing.

Calix Thorntongue is behind Belron in a glowing purple circle in the center of the vines. Kill it and collect its heart, then return to Belron. He says that there is powerful magicka radiating from the organ you brought him. With more like it, he may be able to find a way to bring an end to Stral Blackthroat.

You will need to collect hearts from Uracaile the Graveborn, Kraig the Graveborn, and Odanach the Graveborn. Look at your map. Among the winding roads in Vernim Woods, there are three round stretches of road to the north, east, west and south. Uracaile is to the southeast, Kraig is to the south, and Odanach lies to the west. Your targets are all kneeling in ritual circles. Kill them, take their hearts and return to Belron back at the Pact's camp. Belron will reward you for gathering the hearts for him.

  • 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.
