Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Go to the Hall of Justice in Vivec City, and talk to Beleru Omoril. She will inform you of a Telvanni wizard's experiment that's about to go out of control.

"Dubdil Alar has always been a bit off his rocker, even for a Telvanni wizard. Apparently now things have gotten really out of hand. His apprentice Nara Varam needs help stopping whatever he's up to. And don't bother asking me what you need to stop."
What do I need to do?
"Head over to his tower and see what's going on. You've also been asked to collect any research notes you may find for the apprentice to study later.
Varam can fill you in on the details. She'll also have your pay if you manage to complete the job."
I'll get right to it.

Beleru Omoril recommends that you talk to Dubdil's apprentice, Nara Varam, if you want more information. She's in the central plaza in the Saint Olms Waistworks. Although she doesn't fully understand how the experiment works, she knows that it will alter the laws of reality and cause much chaos. She says she needs Dubdil Alar's Research Notes to help deal with the aftermath in case you're unable to halt the experiment. The notes will also assist her in determining what led Dubdil to conduct such dangerous research.

Once you've finished acquiring information, travel to Dubdil Alar Tower, located south of Vos. Dubdil is starting his experiment and is surrounded by Research Assistants. He starts drawing power, but something goes horribly wrong: the Research Assistants burst into flame and groups of Skaafin start appearing. After you have defeated several waves of Skaafin, Mehz the Cozener emerges through a rift. Mehz the Cozener is a World Boss, so be prepared for a difficult fight. After killing him, activate the Transmutational Breach in the center of the experiment to close the rift. Taking too long to do this will result in Dubdil Alar being killed. Finally, be sure to grab the Research Notes lying on top of a nearby rock.

Return to Nara Varam with the Research Notes and speak to her to complete the quest. Her dialogue will differ depending on whether Dubdil survived or not, but either way she will be grateful and start investigating his notes.

If Dubdil Alar survived:
If Dubdil Alar was killed:
I was able to stop Dubdil Alar and gather his research notes.
"I'm grateful that we were able to solve this through peaceful measures. I'll start my research on his notes straight away. I'm sure to find some clue about how he came about this knowledge in the first place."
I stopped the experiment and gathered research notes. Dubdil Alar didn't survive.
"I'm sure you did all that you could. We have to be grateful for what we have saved, not for what we have lost. I'll begin my research on his notes to see what damage his magic may have caused.
I thank you for your service."

  • 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.
