Daedric cocoons
The Divine Prosecution has requested I travel to Eton Nir Grotto and destroy the cocoons of the Daedra roaming the cavern. I'll also need to burn any sacrilegious text I find.

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Speak to Justiciar Tanorian in Alinor and accept the task.
  2. Travel to the Eton Nir Grotto.
  3. Burn heretical texts and destroy Daedric cocoons.
  4. Return to Tanorian for your reward.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Speak to Justiciar Tanorian in Alinor to start the quest.

I'm interested in work.
"We've been gathering reports of a Meridia cult for years, but only recently were we able to find them in Eton Nir Grotto. However, it seems that their worship attracted the attention of Daedra. Most of the cultists, if not all, are dead."
So what do you need me to do?
"We've gotten some troubling reports of the Daedra creating cocoons. There's dozens of them now, spreading throughout the cave. We need you to destroy them.
Oh, and burn any sacrilegious text you find. No need for that material to remain."
I'll destroy the Daedra's cocoons and burn any sacrilegious text I find.

Now travel to Eton Nir Grotto. Keep right after entering the delve and find each of the Scripture of Meridia and destroy them:

  1. On the north side, near some barrels and a torch in the ground. Close to a large rock formation.
  2. In a cart near a campfire. The cart has a crate, two baskets and some barrels near it.
  3. In a tent near a campfire. You can see this one when looking west from the 2nd Scripture.
  4. To the right of the entrance of a tent, near some barrels, an apple basket and a backpack. The tent is located slightly uphill.
  5. On the south side, near the path to the delve boss. It is in front of 2 small tents near a campfire.

Continue deeper into the delve to find Daedric Cocoons and destroy those:

  1. In the cave north of the cave where the delve boss is located.
  2. East side of the cave where the delve boss is located.
  3. South side of the cave where the delve boss is located.
  4. West side of the cave where the delve boss is located.
  5. In the small cave east of the cave where the delve boss is located.

When you have completed the quest objectives, return to Justiciar Tanorian and talk to him to complete the quest.

"Greetings, deputy. Were you able to complete your assignment?"
I've completed my assignment.
"Excellent! The furnace is the only suitable place for any Daedric scripture. And destroying those cocoons should put an end to those Daedras' dark machinations.
You've done Summerset a great service, deputy. And so quickly too! My!"
