Retrieve a copy of Wind and Sand for Neloth.
Quest Giver: Neloth
Location(s): Radiant
Prerequisite Quest: Old Friends and Experimental Subject
Reward: Whirlwind Cloak spell tome made available, and gold
Prerequisites: Destruction 40

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Speak to Neloth about assisting him in his research.
  2. Go to a radiant location and retrieve Wind and Sand.
  3. Return to Neloth for your reward.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

After completing Old Friends and Experimental Subject, speak to Neloth again about assisting in his research. This time, he will tell you that he is attempting to adapt Redguard magic to the island's ash. He has learned the location of a book through a source of his that would prove invaluable to his spell research. The book is Wind and Sand and is located in a radiant location: a Dragon lair, dragon priest lair, draugr crypt, Falmer hive, Forsworn camp, hagraven nest, vampire lair, or warlock lair.

Once you have the book, return to Neloth who will excitedly declare that he can create some sort of wind spell with its contents. You will receive 250 gold, and the spell tome Whirlwind Cloak will be made available for purchase the next time that Talvas Fathryon restocks.

  • 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 DLC2TTR3b 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 DLC2TTR3b.
