In forge chamber:

Secret Areas[edit | edit source]

  • In the forge walk towards the lava, both on the east and the west ramp, keep going east and west respectively to find gates and secret passages. Some degree of fire resistance helps.
  • Chests ~1080, ~2280 Gold.png value (L51).

Issues[edit | edit source]

  • Consoles: For the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game, swimming through lava while using the Become Ethereal shout or using items with the Resist Fire enchantment will obscure the player character's vision.
  • PC: If the player chooses to add the Aetherium Crest to their inventory via console commands (cheating) will cause the quest to stall.
