Sings-With-Reed joins the Coral Heart
Captain Noris came to Vivec's Antlers to defend against an incursion by Alexandra Conele of the Covenant. Alexandra wants to retrieve an artifact known as the Coral Heart from Vivec's Antlers. The Pact is barely holding its ground.

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Free four soldiers near Vivec's Antlers.
  2. Free Lieutenant Galyn.
  3. Place Sings-With-Reed's eggs.
  4. Secure the Coral Heart for the Ebonheart Pact by defeating Alexandra Conele.
  5. Report to Holgunn.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Captain Noris says the Covenant commander Alexandra Conele wants to use the Coral Heart to control a Brother of Strife, Sadal. Dreugh attacked both armies and buried Noris' soldiers in mud. Covenant soldiers captured Lieutenant Galyn. He sends you to talk to Sings-With-Reed for more information, and you volunteer to free four soldiers from mud.

The area where the survivors are trapped is northwest of Captain Noris. You need to interact with the mud piles to free them. The last soldier you free will speak to you:

Pact Soldier: "The Covenant have Galyn ... she's on their ship. Help her. Please!"

Lieutenant Galyn is aboard the ship on the lower level. Conele learned how to enter the Coral Heart chamber from Galyn, but Galyn plans to rally her soldiers and lead them inside to Conele. You need to find Galyn's aide, Sings-With-Reed, and enter the Heart chamber.

Sings-With-Reed is on a rock near the Covenant camp to the south of the ship. She suggests you convince the coral the Ebonheart Pact is friendly by placing her eggs at three large clusters of coral around the Antlers. This will convince the dreugh to fight the Covenant. She will meet you in the Heart chamber.

Once inside the Coral Heart Chamber, you will need to find the coral heart. Sings-With-Reed joins with the heart, then Alexandra Conele appears. Defeat her, and talk to Lieutenant Galyn. You take the Coral Heart and give it to Holgunn. He gives you Alexandra's Froststaff and gold.


Quest Stages[edit]

The Coral Heart
Finishes Quest Journal Entry
Latest start (If started from Sergeant Larthas)

I met an injured Pact soldier on the road from Vivec's Antlers. The Covenant has invaded the area, and the Pact is heavily outnumbered. The soldier asked me to speak to his superior, Captain Noris, in a camp by the north sea.

Objective: Talk to Captain Noris
Captain Noris has asked me to help free his men. They've been taken by the dreugh. I need to save the Pact soldiers by digging out dreugh mud mounds.
Objective: Search Mud Mounds for Survivors: 0/4

Captain Noris said that an Argonian named Sings-With-Reed may know more about the Brother of Strife, the Coral Heart, and Alexandra Conele's plans to acquire it. She may also be able to tell me more about what's happening in Vivec's Antlers.

Objective: Rescue Lieutenant Galyn from the Ship
