The Ancient Tome Chest

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

Note: This quest no longer appears in your journal following the Anniversary Edition update.

  1. Travel to Hob's Fall Cave.
  2. Locate the Ancient Tome Chest within.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Note: This quest was originally added to your journal upon installing the Arcane Accessories Creation. With the release of the Anniversary Edition, this quest no longer appears in your journal. Nevertheless, the rewards can still be obtained by finding the lost library yourself.

The quest involves travelling to Hob's Fall Cave in Winterhold to locate a long-lost archive of spell tomes. The cave is filled with warlock and skeleton enemies. The quest marker will lead you to an "Ancient Tome Chest" in a reading area found roughly halfway through the dungeon. For more precise directions, see the dungeon walkthrough. Open the chest to complete the quest.

The chest contains all 16 new spell tomes added by the Creation. Reading these will teach you the following spells:

The spells obtained from these tomes are very powerful, as they use far less magicka than anything available in the base game with the same effect. If gameplay balance is a concern, you should note that you are not required to read or even take the tomes in order to complete the quest.

  • The following empty quest stages were omitted from the table: 5.
  • Any text displayed in angle brackets (e.g., <Alias=LocationHold>) is dynamically set by the Radiant Quest system, and will be filled in with the appropriate word(s) when seen in game.
  • 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.
  • If an entry is marked as "Finishes Quest" it means the quest disappears from the Active Quest list, but you may still receive new entries for that quest.
  • On the PC, it is possible to use the console to advance through the quest by entering setstage ccBGSSSE014_SpellPack_StartupQuest stage, where stage is the number of the stage you wish to complete. It is not possible to un-complete (i.e. go back) quest stages, but it is possible to clear all stages of the quest using resetquest ccBGSSSE014_SpellPack_StartupQuest.
