Online:Lair of Maarselok
|# of Zones||1|
|Green Hall, Grahtwood|
|Neighboring jungles of the Tenmar Forest|
|Veteran Speed Run Target||35 mins|
The fertile jungles of this mountain valley have long since swallowed up the Khajiit kingdom that once called it home. But a new, malignant growth is spreading here, and it threatens to consume far more than old ruins.
It is part of the Scalebreaker dungeon pack DLC, along with the Moongrave Fane. The Azureblight, a deathly corruption originating from an abandoned Khajiiti temple within the Tenmar Mountain valley, threatens the Elden Tree. When Grahtwood’s protectors tried and failed to destroy the Dragon Maarselok at the center of the blight, a second plan is hatched to enlist the help of the forest spirit Selene and her captor, the warlock Carindon. Together in an uneasy truce, and with your help, they must stop Maarselok and his blight before the corruption can spread further.
- Update 23 Patch Notes
Something deeply wrong is growing in the jungles of Tenmar, a malignant blight with a Dragon at its heart. The armies of Elden Root have tried, and failed, to root it out and now their last desperate hope rests on a precarious truce between the forest spirit, Selene, and her captor, the Warlock Carindon. Can you keep the peace between these bitter enemies long enough to end Maarselok's blight?
Deep beneath the border mountains of eastern Grahtwood, the Dragon known as Maarselok wakes with the release of his brethren from the Halls of Colossus. Hungry and vengeful, the terrible beast has ravaged the wilds, and his corrupting power threatens the Elden Root tree if left unchecked … Failing to deal with the monster on their own, the Wood Elves have reached out to an unlikely pair for help: the forest spirit Selene and her captor, the Warlock Carindon. With their help, you and your team must venture into Maarselok’s domain and put a stop to his rampages before the blight can spread any further.

Maarselok is fought three separate times throughout the dungeon:
Hard Mode is only available in the Veteran version of Lair of Maarselok. When you get to the final boss fight against Maarselok, you have the option to activate the Azureblight Seed, located near the entrance to the plateau. Activating the seed will display the following:
- <This Azureblight seed resembles those you've seen in your ascent through the corruption, except this one has writhing roots sprouting from its cracked shell. Like it's trying to plant itself in the fetid soil.>
- <Try to smash the seed.>
Smashing the seed will make the boss fight more difficult and will cause Selene to become corrupted by the Azureblight, resulting in her fighting against you rather than aiding you as an ally. If your group dies, the seed will need to be activated again to reenable Hard Mode.
This is Maarselok's perch.
