Method and Madness
Finishes Quest Journal Entry
I entered a Blackreach cavern and found Gwendis scouting the area. I should speak to her.
Objective: Talk to Gwendis
Latest start Gwendis believes that Stone Garden lies just ahead, through a chasm in these Blackreach caverns. She asked me to take the lead and watch for ambushes.
Objective: Find the Stone Garden's Entrance
I found the entrance to the Stone Garden, but there is an enormous werewolf on guard. I need to kill Exarch Kraglen before I can enter.
Objective: Kill Exarch Kraglen
Gwendis unlocked the entrance to the Stone Garden while I dealt with Exarch Kraglen. Now that we have access, I should explore farther inside.
Objective: Explore the Stone Garden
I caught up to Arkasis in one of his testing chambers. There he unveiled one of his newest creations: the Stone Behemoth. I have no choice but to destroy it.
Objective: Kill the Stone Behemoth
Arkasis escaped the testing chamber after the destruction of the Stone Behemoth. Gwendis suggested I chase after him while she guards the rear and investigates his testing chamber.
Objective: Find Arkasis the Mad Alchemist
I found Arkasis in his main laboratory. He sealed himself in some huge device and doesn't intend to come out peacefully. I must end his insane experiments through force.
Objective: Kill Arkasis the Mad Alchemist
Finishes quest☑ I killed Arkasis with Gwendis's help. I should talk to her about what comes next.
Objective: Talk to Gwendis

  • 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.
