Addiction

Time has come to finally meet Thadon, ruler of Mania. His quest for you will be to retrieve a Chalice of Reversal. Talk to Wide-Eye, his argonian assistant. Sheíll tell you that the chalice can be found in Dunroot Burrow. Also, youíll know that in order to get inside, youíll have to eat some Felldew.

When youíre at the spot, defeat an Elytra Hatchling and take Felldew from its body. Consume it and youíll be able to get inside the cave. The dungeon itself is very large, it has no less than 5 levels. You are temporarily addicted to Felldew, and if you donít eat new portions regularly, some of your stats will be lowered. You can tell that Elytra is holding some Felldew by the green glow around it.

On the last level of the dungeon youíll find some Felldew addicts. The chalice will be somewhere around their hangout. Leave this place using a shortcut, then go back to Thadon.

The Cold Flame of Agnon

Sheogorath wants you to light the great torch in favor of Mania or Dementia. Head for Cylarne. Talk to both sides of the conflict there: Dark Seducers (Dementia guards) and Golden Saints (Mania). The former reside outside the ruins, the latter dwell deep inside. You have to choose which side to support. You can scout the area for the Aureals (Mania), or lead them into a trap as told by the Mazken (Dementia). Do as you will, their forces are quite balanced so anyway you are the one who will make a difference here. When the battle is over, watch the victorsí leader to sacrifice her life to extract the holy flame. Go outside and step into the fire marked on your map.

Ritual of Accession

Sheogorath orders you to take place of one of the dukes. You now have to make your choice Ė it will somehow affect the rest of the main quest, but the differences between the quests that follow are actually quite vague. Talk to both priests to know whatís the ritual you have to perform, and then tell the Prince what youíve decided.

Ritual of Mania

The Ritual of Mania sees you assassinating the duke by making him overdose a drug known as Greenmote. Go to Thadonís court and talk to Wide-Eye. Raise her disposition if you have to, and sheíll share some secrets with you. First, every day around noon she has runs a special errand for the duke. Wait until 12 pm and follow her all the way to a secret Geenmote Silo.

Greenmote Silo - Main Quests part II - Quests - The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Game Guide and Walkthrough
Greenmote Silo

You have to sneak to the silo on the right side of the map. If you are spotted, youíll be thrown out and have to try again. Watch out for the guards and for Wide-Eye herself. When you reach the storage room, grab two units of Greenmote and take your leave.

Wait until around 6 pm and sneak towards your map marker Ė you are to add Greenmote to the dukeís dinner and wine. Obviously you canít get caught this time either.

When you finally succeed in poisoning the dukeís dinner, visit him around 8 pm, when heís having the meal with his subordinates. Once heís dead, touch his body to get some blood. You might also want to grab his crown, as itís quite a cool item.

Go back to the temple and touch the altar to complete the ritual.

Anya agrees to distract some of the guards, and Kithlan gives you a key that opens all the doors around House of Dementia. Follow the map marker to find Sylís bedroom. Once youíre there it turns out the duchess has escaped. Go back to the garden and touch the statue to the right of the bedroom door, to reveal an entrance.

Xirethard - Main Quests part II - Quests - The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Game Guide and Walkthrough
Xirethard

First level of Xirethard isnít anything out of ordinary. Watch out for fireball-throwing traps along the walls. Later on, youíll have to battle some royal guards.

Xirethard Depths - Main Quests part II - Quests - The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Game Guide and Walkthrough
Xirethard Depths

In the first room of Xirethard Depths, find a switch on one of the pillars to reveal a secret passage (screenshot below). Thanks to it, you can go around the blocked door. Reach the map marker Ė here is where you fight Syl. When you defeat her, grab her heart and her hammer. Go back to the temple to complete the ritual.

After a long scene itíll turn out that Thadon is betraying Sheogorath and joining the enemy. Your next task is to retake The Fringe.

Go to The Fringe - Main Quests part II - Quests - The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Game Guide and Walkthrough

Retaking the Fringe

Go to The Fringe. Around Passwall youíll see a unit of your guardians (Mazkens or Aureals, depending on your duke title). Talk to their leader and help them defeat the attackers. When she asks you whether youíd like to lead the defense yourself, just let her take care of that.

After defeating three waves of Knights of Order, youíll be sent on a quest to the nearby ruins of Xeddefen - Main Quests part II - Quests - The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Game Guide and Walkthrough

After defeating three waves of Knights of Order, youíll be sent on a quest to the nearby ruins of Xeddefen. Defeat the knights guarding the entrance and go inside, following the map marker. The very-hard door that you encounter can be opened with a key held by a nearby Priest of Order.

Xeddefen - Main Quests part II - Quests - The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Game Guide and Walkthrough
Xeddefen

When youíre on the lower level, youíll see Shelden Ė self-proclaimed mayor of Passwall. Heíll ask you to escort him out of here. It doesnít matter if you agree, you donít get any reward for helping him anyway. A little bit ahead youíll see an Obelisk. In order to destroy it, you have to place 3 Hearts of Order in it. They can be obtained from dead Knights of Order. When you overload the obelisk, the place will start to collapse. Keep you chin up and look at the ceiling at all times. Donít run around blindly, but be careful not to get crushed by the falling rocks.

I'm having a problem with the Ritual of Mania quest. I have retrieved the Greenmote and I have waited until just before 8, but I have no idea how to add the Greenmote to Thadon's food and wine. I know I'm in the right room because I'm right on top of the marker. Please help.

Calibranna Grey 10/08/2009 10:20

reyvanna just drop all ur stuff and go to the place where u get the chalice then when u get it it cleanses u of the felldew effect and then go back to the place where ur stuff is, or just, use a potion of feather, or use a feather charm if ur a mage.

graciavanmil 21/05/2009 11:26

I've got a bit of a problem! I am doing the mission of retaking the fringe and I'm stuck because there is a gate and it won't open for you, and it leads to a bridge. There is a priest of order there but I can't defeat him even though I killed all the other enemies! But he still has a shocking field around him! Is that the reason I can't open the door or is it something else? I pushed a button somewhere but the door still won't open for me! Does anyone know how I can fix this? thanks! gr gracia

Mr. Progamer 07/03/2009 13:08

You only get Felldew from the glowing Elytra.

mikkq 06/03/2009 16:27

in the part wher i (When youíre at the spot, defeat an Elytra Hatchling and take Felldew from its body.) I dint got felldew.is there any other way where I can get this felldew?...

Mr. Progamer 23/01/2009 23:09

No problem

Mighty Joe Laith 23/01/2009 23:09

Awesome, thanks.

Mr. Progamer 23/01/2009 22:56

You got it all right, but no you cant take the armor from the bodies, you only get the armor that the opposite side gives you.

Mighty Joe Laith 23/01/2009 18:27

Hey in the "Cold Flame of Agnon" quest, if you side with the golden saints, you fight the dark seducers right? And if you side with the dark seducers, you fight golden saints. So you can get the dark seducer/golden saint armor and weapons from their bodies right? Jw.

The Hulk659 21/01/2009 02:39

o yea...... dang it! i sold it......

Mr. Progamer 20/01/2009 18:28
