Initially the main gate requires a key, so it cannot be explored.
During an exploration of the ruins, the Eye of Magnus is discovered within its deepest depths.
Places[edit | edit source]
Outside the excavation site, there is a Silver Ore Vein. When Under Saarthal is launched, this is the first time the Dragonborn encounters Brelyna Maryon, waiting outside the excavation site together with Tolfdir.
Saarthal Excavation[edit | edit source]
Here the Dragonborn finds Arniel Gane as well as three Enchanted Rings and the Saarthal Amulet. There is an Iron Ore Vein and a Gold Ore Vein in the caves. It is here that Nerien of the legendary Psijic Order appears to the Dragonborn.
Saarthal[edit | edit source]
In the chamber with the Eye of Magnus the Dragonborn will have to face off against Jyrik Gauldurson, who has a Gauldur Amulet Fragment and a Writ of Sealing on his body. Beyond the site where the Eye is discovered is a door leading to a word wall with one of the words for the Ice Form shout.
