Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

You meet Malkur Valos as you approach the Court of Contempt. He asks for assistance in saving some Mage Guild members who were captured, taken to the Hall of Justice and put on trial by Judge Xiven.

Destroy the Crystals[edit]

You are required to destroy three elemental crystals to lower the barrier preventing access to the hall and recover a key to the gate from the coffers to the north. The three crystals are found in the SE, SW and NW corners of the main courtyard area.

Once you've destroyed the crystals and recovered the key you need to make your way to the entrance, where you will find Malkur raising flame atronachs. He informs you that the guild members have been found guilty, sentenced to death and taken to the cells beneath the hall.

Rescue the Mages[edit]

Once inside the inner courtyard, if you speak to Malkur again he will inform you that he will hold the gate while you rescue the mages. The inner courtyard is guarded by Magistrate Bogtro, a Xivkyn. There are five doors off of the courtyard, but only the center door can be used. Through the door is a large room with many large cages, three of which contain the mages; Tarrami, Dithis Romori and Denthis Romori. There is a backpack near the center of the room containing the key to the cages. Once you've released them you need to speak to Tarrami.

Upon exiting to the inner courtyard you are asked to protect the three mages while they breakthrough a magical barrier blocking access through the gate. After several waves of monster and humaniod daedra you will face Judge Xiven and his raised clannfear. Once defeated, the mages will have broken through the barrier so you are able to escape. In the main courtyard the Malkur raised flame atronachs are battling the other daedra

The mages run off and open a portal to the Hollow City, speak to Malkur to receive Arbiter's Vambraces and complete the quest. You can use the portal to move directly to the Hollow City.



  • After completing this quest, the Library in The Hollow City is unlocked, and the four mages (and some other unnamed mages) can be found in and around the building.
