Pursue Kassandra through the Ayleid nexus gates
Kassandra, having evaded Jaxsik-Orrn and Xukas, entered a second xanmeer called Vakka-Bok. Famia and I must enter this vast ruin and prevent Kassandra from acquiring the Remnant of Argon.

"I think ... I think I know why I'm here. I'm supposed to bring the Remnant back."

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Enter the Vakka-Bok Xanmeer with Famia.
  2. Navigate your way through the xanmeer until you reach a cavern with a deactivated Welkynd gateway.
  3. Obtain the Welkynd Stone, reactivate the gateway and enter.
  4. Head into the small welkynd gate to the northwest to pursue the traitor.
  5. Look for a usable Vakka Stone in the Ayleid Ruins using the Nexus.
  6. Use the obtained Vakka Stone to reopen the gate to Deep-Root.
  7. Fight your way through Deep-Root until you reach the chamber of the Remnant.
  8. Fight the Colossal Miregaunt and Kassandra.
  9. Head up to the village via the newly created vine ladder.
  10. Speak with Famia.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]


  • While talking to Jaxsik-Orrn at the Hist tree in the village, she says that the Blackguards will be the least of your worries in the eastern xanmeer. However, no actual Blackguards bandits are found inside.
  • The Guardian of the Blue Stone won't exist in the xanmeer before starting the quest or reaching the related objective.
  • The vakka stone needed to power up the Grand Nexus Gate won't exist at the end of the Nexus before reaching the related objective.


  • Kassandra remains in idle stance for a few seconds and appears targettable (red glow around her) at zero health inside the collapsed miregaunt after defeating her, before disappearing abruptly. ?

Quest Stages[edit]

The Remnant of Argon
Finishes Quest Journal Entry
I need to enter the Vakka-Bok Xanmeer with Famia and try to catch up to Kassandra before it's too late.
Objective: Search the Xanmeer for Kassandra
I found a massive Ayleid gate. According to Famia, we need a power source to activate it. I should search the cavern for a suitable welkynd stone.
Objective: Acquire a Welkynd Stone
I found a welkynd stone. I should take it back to the Ayleid gate and place it in the sconce nearby. With any luck, the gate will activate.
Objective: Activate the Ayleid Gate
The welkynd stone allowed us to open the massive Ayleid gate. We should see what awaits us on the other side.
Objective: Search for Signs of Kassandra
Kassandra used the Kajin-Jat Crystal to escape through a mysterious Ayleid gateway that draws its power from the Argonian vakka stones. The gate deactivated as soon as she left. I should discuss our options with Famia.
Objective: Talk to Famia
While Famia watches over the gate, I need to go find a vakka stone that can activate the Ayleid gate.
Objective: Acquire a Vakka Stone
I found an intact vakka stone hidden in a maze of Ayleid laboratories. I should take it back to Famia. Hopefully it will activate the Ayleid gate and allow us to pass through to the next leg of our journey.
Objective: Return to Famia
The vakka stone activated the mysterious Ayleid gate. I must pass through it to continue pursuing Kassandra.
Objective: Enter the Gateway
I caught sight of Kassandra, who seems intent on stopping Famia and I from going any farther. I need to make my way to the Remnant, even if it means going through her.
Objective: Pursue Kassandra
Kassandra fled deeper into the cavern—perhaps to the final Remnant chamber. I need to follow her.
Objective: Reach the Remnant of Argon
Kassandra touched the Remnant of Argon—resulting in an explosion of vines, and the emergence of a miregaunt with her inside. I must defeat Kassandra, and the creature she occupies.
Objective: Kill Kassandra
I was forced to kill Kassandra, but Famia managed to retrieve the Remnant of Argon without any ill effects. We should take the relic back to the surface.
Objective: Leave the Xanmeer
Finishes quest☑ We arrived back in Root-Whisper Village with the Remnant. I should talk to Famia about our next steps.
Objective: Talk to Famia

  • 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.
