Overview

An Argonnenssen Dragon named Dunalenthea was supposed to be helping some Dragonborn build a settlement in the wilds of Xen'drik, but nothing has been heard from her in some time.

Speak with Yoldorim in the Marketplace and he'll send you to investigate Dunalenthea's disappearance.

What to Expect

Point of No Return - dropdown past the village

Known Traps

  • Air jets in the room with the floating platforms; can be toggled by hitting target levers.
  • Pressure plates in the temple hallways, eastern half of the northern corridor (electric).
  • Pressure plates in the southwest corner of the second section of the temple (evil).
    • Pressure plate traps are random in the given area thus the numbers for bonuses also change.

Tips and Misc

  • The puzzle to unlock the gate is a simple Simon Says mechanic - pull the lever and pay attention to which runes light up, and then hit the runes. You must do it three times, pulling 3, 4, and then 5 runes.
  • Be careful in the end-fight... Dunalenthea is being controlled and can take damage; killing her might cause the quest to fail (unknown).
  • The opened cavern & Lizardfolk fanatic can be found on the way to the village.
