A chaurus guards Myrwatch

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Travel to Myrwatch and attempt to open the locked door.
  2. Read Hans's Journal and cast a fire spell at the seal.
  3. Enter the tower to complete the quest.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

This quest automatically begins upon installing the Myrwatch Creation. It will direct you to Myrwatch, an undiscovered tower marked on your map. The tower is just east of Morthal and is guarded by a lone leveled Chaurus. You will need to attempt to open the locked front entrance in order to update the quest.

The body of Hans can be found nearby. Loot his body and read Hans's Journal to learn how to gain entrance to the tower. The journal provides a hint in this regard:

"When the eye is doused in flames, the hair will light the way."

You will need to cast a fire damage spell at the eye-shaped seal on the ground in front of the entrance. Helpfully, Hans can also be looted for a copy of Spell Tome: Flames in case you have no fire damage spells. Once you cast the spell, the ghostly apparition of a rabbit will appear (or more than likely a hare, per the hint in the journal). The apparition will proceed to hop over to the nearby magical brazier and will cause it to alight with a tower of blue energy. You will then receive a message stating that "The tower door was unlocked by mysterious forces."

Head inside the tower to complete the quest and investigate your new player home.
