"You remember where you hid the Heart of Transparent Law?"


Ritemaster Iachesis remembers a woman's voice, whispering ancient words over and over. He thinks these words are tied to the place where he hid the Heart of Transparent Law. Before we breach the barrier, we need to determine what the words mean.
"Tell the Ritemaster. It's a spell of retrieval."
"Tell me when to unleash Dawnbreaker's power!"
"Look, Mephala. The mortal hid the Heart inside his own body. How clever!"
"Meridia's vessel. You have no power here."

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Speak with Oriandra and read the notes about the ancient language.
  2. Talk with Leythen who sends you to Ebon Stadmont with a projection rune.
  3. Read Grand Maestro Forte's Research and find the way through Ebon Stadmont.
  4. Interact with the stone to summon Leythen.
  5. Talk with Nocturnal's Earl.
  6. Talk with Leythen again.
  7. Return to Artaeum and tell the Ritemaster what you've learned.
  8. Talk to Darien Gautier and return to the Dreaming Cave.
  9. Go through the portal to Evergloam.
  10. Scout your way ahead with Darien and talk with the Ritemaster every time the crows jog his memories.
  11. Head towards the ancient ruins at the top of the mountain.
  12. Defend yourself against the combined Daedric forces of the two Princes.
  13. Fight the Wraith-of-Crows and escape through Valsirenn's portal.
  14. Talk with Oriandra to finish the quest.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

The solution to getting through Ebon Stadmont is in the following passage of Grand Maestro Forte's Research:

"A pair of crows to begin your search,
Then a lone crow upon a perch,
But it's not one or two that open the way,
The crows will have their say."

Go through the portal with two crow statues, then the portal with one, and then the portal with three statues.

Quest Stages[edit]

Lost in Translation
Finishes Quest Journal Entry
I should return to the Dreaming Cave and talk to the Ritemaster about the memory he recovered.
Objective: Talk to Ritemaster Iachesis
Latest start The Ritemaster asked me to go to his study in Ceporah Tower and check on Oriandra's progress in translating the ancient words.
Objective: Talk to Oriandra in the Ritemaster's Study
Oriandra has asked that I take the notes on this ancient language to Leythen. Showing them to him might convince Leythen to help us.
Objective: Take the Notes on the Ancient Language
Oriandra suggested that Leythen could help translate the ancient words, since he was the Psijic Order's language expert before he left to join the Court of Bedlam. I should talk to Leythen in Valsirenn's study.
Objective: Talk to Earl Leythen
Leythen provided me with a rune. He says if I use it in Ebon Stadmont, he'll be able to see what I see. I need to go to Ebon Stadmont, find the ancient writing, and use Leythen's rune.
Objective: Use Leythen's Rune in Ebon Stadmont
Leythen's rune has allowed him to project himself to my location. I should talk to him and see if he knows what I should be looking for.
Objective: Talk to Earl Leythen
Leythen thinks the translated passages about crows will help guide me through the Ebon Stadmont forest. I should refer to the passages as I search for the stone inscribed with the ancient writing.
Objective: Navigate the Ebon Stadmont Forest
Objective Hint: Use the Research Book to Help Navigate the Forest
This might be the area where I'll find the stone inscribed with the ancient language. I should use the rune so Leythen can assist me.
Objective: Locate the Inscribed Stone
I found the inscribed stone mentioned in the Grand Maestro's Research, but before Leythen could translate it, he was replaced by another member of the Court of Bedlam. I should talk to her.
Objective: Talk to Nocturnal's Earl
Leythen has reestablished his connection to the rune. I should talk to him.
Objective: Talk to Earl Leythen
I need to return to Ceporah Tower on Artaeum and tell the Ritemaster what Nocturnal's earl revealed about the ancient phrase.
Objective: Talk to Ritemaster Iachesis in Ceporah Tower
The Ritemaster asked me to check on Darien and make sure he's ready to help us breach the barrier in the Dreaming Cave.
Objective: Talk to Darien Gautier
Darien's ready. Now I should head into the Dreaming Cave and meet up with the Ritemaster.
Objective: Meet in the Dreaming Cave
Darien removed the barrier and opened the way to wherever the Ritemaster hid the Heart of Transparent Law. I should enter the portal and see where it leads.
Objective: Use the Dreaming Cave Portal
Now that we've emerged from the Dreaming Cave portal, I should talk to the Ritemaster and see if this place triggered any of his missing memories.
Objective: Talk to Ritemaster Iachesis
The Ritemaster was weakened by the effort of opening the portal in the Dreaming Cave. He asked me to scout ahead and clear the path while Valsirenn helps him follow after.
Objective: Follow the Path
The crows seemed to recognize the Ritemaster. I should ask him about that.
Objective: Talk to Ritemaster Iachesis
I should continue to scout ahead and clear the path for the Ritemaster until we find the Heart of Transparent Law.
Objective: Follow the Path
The crows said something about an offer from their mistress. I should ask the Ritemaster if he knows what they were talking about.
Objective: Talk to Ritemaster Iachesis
I need to continue to scout ahead and clear the path up the mountain so we can find the hiding place of the Heart of Transparent Law.
Objective: Follow the Path
We reached the top of the path and it's a dead end. The Ritemaster seems to have remembered something important, though. I should talk to him.
Objective: Talk to Ritemaster Iachesis
The Ritemaster remembered that he took the Heart through this portal and made some sort of deal with Nocturnal to hide it safely. I should use the portal and see where it leads.
Objective: Use the Portal
The Ritemaster said he remembered an ancient ruin. I should head toward that and see what's there.
Objective: Approach the Mountain Top Ruin
This is the ancient ruin where the Ritemaster remembers casting the spell and hiding away the Heart. I should talk to him before he reveals the hiding place.
Objective: Talk to Ritemaster Iachesis
The Ritemaster said the ancient words, but Clavicus Vile and Mephala appeared. We need to defend ourselves from the Daedric horde.
Objective: Defend Against the Daedric Attack
Nocturnal appeared, banished the other Princes, and ripped the Heart of Transparent Law from its hiding place inside the Ritemaster's chest. We need to hold on long enough for Valsirenn to finish casting her teleportation spell.
Objective: Escape Nocturnal's Realm
Ritemaster Iachesis is dead, the Heart of Transparent Law is in Nocturnal's hands, the triad of Daedric Princes has been dissolved, and Darien lost Meridia's sword, Dawnbreaker. I need to let Oriandra know everything that happened.
