[edit] Walkthrough

This quest can either start when you find Meridia's Beacon, or when you first approach her shrine near Solitude.

[edit] Bring Meridia's beacon to Mount Kilreath

If you do not already have the beacon, Meridia calls upon you find her beacon) and bring it back to her shrine. The location of the beacon is random and changes with every game. It is always in a boss chest.

[edit] Replace the beacon

Once the beacon has been obtained, place it at the feet of the statue of Meridia.

[edit] Guide Meridia's Light through the temple

After replacing the beacon, she speaks of a Necromancer, Malkoran, who has defiled her temple, located beneath the Shrine, and must be destroyed. At this point, the doors of the ruins and temple are unlocked.

Inside the temple are a large number of "desecrated corpses" which each contain an unusually large amount of gold (leveled) and the ruins are guarded by Corrupted Shades.

To make his/her way through the ruins, the Dragonborn must activate pedestals with beacons to direct Meridia's ray of light making a continuous path of light.

[edit] Destroy Malkoran

After killing Malkoran, there is an altar with the sword Dawnbreaker at the rear of the chamber.

[edit] Retrieve Dawnbreaker

Retrieve the sword from the altar. Meridia then gives you this sword as a gift and tells you to wield it in her name.
