Investigate strange occurrances
A Khajiit named Birkhu the Bold has stumbled upon a number of dangerous Dwarven mechanisms, including the massive Dwarven Centurion, Nyzchaleft.

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Investigate the Dwarven Mechanisms.
  2. Defeat Nyzchaleft.
  3. Talk to Birkhu the Bold.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Birkhu the Bold was a part of a botched expedition to the Dwarven ruins near Nyzchaleft Falls. Traumatized, he refuses to go back. Birkhu has petitioned the king to stop the Dwarven constructs at the falls, and to investigate the strange tremors in the eastern regions of Wrothgar.

Investigate three dwarven mechanisms. They can be found on the snow-covered ground throughout the eastern portion of Wrothgar, most prominently in the areas leading to Nyzchaleft Falls. When activated, the mechanisms will spit out a dwarven spider or two. Defeat them and move on. Your next task is to defeat Nyzchaleft, a massive dwarven centurion located within the ice at Nyzchaleft Falls. You must demolish waves of dwarven constructs before Nyzchaleft breaks free of its icy prison.

When the centurion has been destroyed, return to Birkhu at Skalar's Hostel to be rewarded. He's sitting at a table in the middle of the first floor.


  • Nyzchaleft is a world boss. These bosses are events with multiple waves of enemies culminating in a boss fight, and will require a large group of at least 12, though it is possible to do it with less if it is a balanced and coordinated group.
