Walkthrough[edit | edit source]
Find the elven mage from Aranea's vision[edit | edit source]
Speak to Nelacar[edit | edit source]
Speaking with him reveals that there exists a soul gem which can be reused: Azura's Star. However, that soul gem was lost along with the mad mage who was experimenting with it, Malyn Varen, when he fled with a few loyal students to Ilinalta's Deep.
Find Azura's Star[edit | edit source]
Note: (Possible bug) Inside, the pathway from the first area to the second (Ilinalta's Deluge) may be blocked by a large boulder, save and reload (or exit the dungeon and reenter).
Tell Azura / Nelacar you are ready to enter the Star[edit | edit source]
To restore Azura's Star, the Dragonborn must choose between the following options:
- Returning the Broken Azura's Star to Aranea Ienith, which will ultimately lead to a reward of Azura's Star.
- Returning the Broken Azura's Star to Nelacar, which will ultimately lead to a reward of The Black Star.
Destroy Malyn Varen's soul[edit | edit source]
Malyn Varen's soul is trapped inside the broken star and the Dragonborn must enter it to kill him. Three quite tenacious Dremora Vakynaz (contain Daedra Hearts) will try to protect the mage though. This is done with the help of either Nelacar or Azura herself.
