Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Read The Crimson Dirks, v4 at the bottom floor of Candlehearth Hall.
  2. Defeat Ulfnir Bone-Skin.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Once you've installed the Alternative Armors - Dragonscale Creation, you will receive a miscellaneous objective read The Crimson Dirks, v4 in Candlehearth Hall. It recalls a tale where a young bosmer named Fathrys had hoped to wed Zaharia. She dismissively rejected him by saying that she would only accept him if he were to give her a dragon scale. Hearing this, the drunken bandit mage Antonius regaled an old Nord legend where the warrior Ulfnir Bone-Skin slew the dragon Vithrelnaak, fashioning armor from his scales and ultimately burying it with him. Antonius claims that Ulfnir's corpse protects this armor through death in the barrow near Yorgrim Overlook.

With this, the quest begins in earnest, directing you to Yorgrim Overlook to investigate. When you reach the overlook, you will find the lifeless skeleton of Fathrys holding his Poem for Zaharia. You will be attacked by two generic skeletons and the skeleton of Ulfnir Bone-Skin himself. Defeat them and loot the Overlook Key. With it, you can unlock the gate.

Claim the Studded Dragonscale Armor, Studded Dragonscale Boots, Studded Dragonscale Gauntlets, and Studded Dragonscale Helmet from the chest. With this quest completed and the Dragon Armor perk, you will be able to craft more Studded Dragonscale items.

Notes[edit]

  • If Yorgrim Overlook is visited before you have read the book, the two skeletons will still attack you, but neither Fathrys or Ulfnir's skeletons will be there. Defeating the two skeletons will clear the location. The gate can still be unlocked and the chest looted, but there will be no Dragonscale armor. If the quest is attempted after doing this, Fathrys and Ulfnir will appear as normal and the armor will be added to the chest.
  • By clearing Yorgrim Overlook and unlocking the gate before reading The Crimson Dirks, v4, you'll easily be able to retrieve the armor and complete the quest without defeating Ulfnir.
