Find the third Elder Scroll required

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Find the last Elder Scroll.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

After the completion of the quest Prophet, you will be told by Dexion Evicus that all three Elder Scrolls must be obtained in order for him to read the whole prophecy.

To continue with the Dawnguard questline, the quest Discerning the Transmundane must be completed at least to the point where you acquire the Elder Scroll (Dragon). If you have already obtained and subsequently sold the Elder Scroll to Urag gro-Shub at the College of Winterhold (only possible after completing Alduin's Bane), you must buy back the Elder Scroll. He'll sell it back for 4000 gold, but he can be persuaded to sell it for half price if you are the Arch-Mage or 3000 gold if you aren't.

Notes[edit]

  • If you're doing Discerning the Transmundane as part of this quest and have Serana with you, you may want to avoid Alftand to get to Blackreach, as she will frequently raise nearby corpses, including the ones you'll want later, during the blood harvest portion of that quest.
