  • Jeremy Sera, Lead Content Designer for ESO, revealed on 23rd June 2016 that the scene at the end of this quest took weeks to create. ZOS designed a "cool-ass interact camera" which changes the usual angle of conversation, so that you can see Gwendis looking at the Doomcrag while she speaks to your character.
