Lyranth suggests we bring Arox the Mutilator with us to find the Bladebearer clan. I should talk to Arox.
Objective: Talk to Arox the Mutilator
Lyranth suggested we seek out Rynkyus of the Bladebearer clan. He might know how a Bladebearer's sword ended up in Burning Gyre Keep. I should meet her at Wretched Spire, in the Sever section of the Deadlands.

Rynkyus said he would be waiting for me outside of Kynmarcher Jynd's foundry near an old shrine. We should compare notes.
Objective Hint: Talk to Rynkyus at the Ritual Site
Rynkyus and I found a number of clues in Jynd's foundry and Zynoahz's gaol, but we're no closer to learning the location of the Riven Cataclyst. Fortunately, Lyranth and the Anchorite have something to share.
Objective: Listen to the Conversation
We learned that the cataclyst plans are the work of a blind seer. The Anchorite recalled a name: Elegian. Arox claims that Elegian is held prisoner in a place called the Blood Pit. I should talk to Arox.
Objective: Talk to Arox the Mutilator
Arox told me that the seer we need to speak with is a prisoner in the Blood Pit. The Anchorite will meet us there.
Objective: Go to the Blood Pit
I met the Anchorite outside the Blood Pit, a terrible prison for Mehrunes Dagon's enemies. Elegian, creator of the Riven Cataclyst, is held somewhere inside.
Objective: Explore the Blood Pit
Optional Step: Talk to the Anchorite
As we entered the Blood Pit, we spotted Valkynaz Nokvroz speaking with one of the Blood Pit's overseers. We should listen to what they're saying.

Hidden Objective: Script
Arox suggested that we search the Warden's Overlook. Something there may point us to the location of Elegian's cell.
Objective: Search the Warden's Overlook
We found a prisoner list and the warden's instructions at the Warden's Overlook. Elegian is held in a part of the prison called the Durance Vile and guarded by Fivax the Oppressor.
Objective: Find Elegian's Durance Vile
We entered the Durance Vile, but Elegian's cell is blocked by a glowing door. I should talk to the Anchorite and see if she has any ideas on how to open it.
Objective: Talk to the Anchorite
I need to figure out how to activate the device that will unseal the door to Elegian's prison cell. The Anchorite suggested I gather lucents, and I can always ask her for more information if I need to.
Objective: Find a Way to Open Elegian's Cell
I need charged lucents to place on the discharge labrums. This should reveal the means to unseal Elegian's prison door.
Objective: Activate the Rune of Unsealing
Objective Hint: Use the Dynamus Font
We unlocked the cell where we believe Elegian is being held. Time to meet the mad genius who supposedly designed the Riven Cataclyst.
Objective: Enter Elegian's Cell
We found the blind seer Elegian. He doesn't seem well. The Anchorite wants me to talk to him.
Objective: Talk to Elegian
We heard Valkynaz Nokvroz mention an elixir. We think they use it to clear Elegian's mind when they interrogate him. There are several bottles strewn about in this cell, but which one is right elixir?
Objective: Find the Elixir
I found a green tonic that doesn't seem to be poisonous or disgusting. I should pour it into the braziers and see if the fumes clear Elegian's mind.
Objective: Pour Elixir into Braziers
Pouring the elixir on the braziers created fumes that seem to have cleared Elegian's head. I should talk to him before the effect wears off.
Objective: Talk to Elegian
Elegian told us that he designed the Riven Cataclyst in his madness. He bitterly regrets it, and hopes we can destroy his work. I should listen while he and the Anchorite share a final moment.
Objective: Listen to the Anchorite and Elegian
Elegian told us that the Riven Cataclyst is hidden at Annihilarch's Summit. I should return to Wretched Spire and report this news to Lyranth and Rynkyus.
Objective: Return to Wretched Spire
We returned from the Blood Pit with information about the Riven Cataclyst's location: it's hidden at Annihilarch's Summit. We also learned something about the Anchorite's mask. I should talk to Lyranth and let her know what we learned.
Objective: Talk to Lyranth
☑Finishes quest Our search of the Deadlands uncovered Nokvroz's plans to create his own cataclyst, located Elegian, and determined the hiding place of Sister Celdina's Riven Cataclyst. We still haven't found the missing Bladebearers, but we have a new destination.
