Ring of Khajiiti
Meridia's Shrine is a Daedric shrine located west of the Cursed Mine and it is tended by Javolia Maborel, Demetrius and its priest Basil Ernade. Morning Glory grows on the shrine and there are some Motherwort near it. A single flax and some alkanet are also present.
Upon offering up a sample of undead corpse matter, Meridia will awaken and speak to you. You learn that, unlike other Daedric Princes, Meridia loathes undead and makes it the charge of her followers to destroy them whenever possible. He informs you that necromancers at Howling Cave loot and defile the graves of recently dead in order to create abominations of reanimated undead. You are tasked to destroy them.
Head to Howling Cave, east of Skingrad; it should be marked on your map. At the rear of the cave, guarded by two level-appropriate undead, is a false rock which hides a door that leads deeper into the cave. Inside are the five necromancers (as well as an assortment of level-appropriate undead) that you are to kill. Your compass should point to each of the necromancers, who at high levels may have made the transition to Lich. After killing them, return to Meridia for your reward: Ring of Khajiiti.
Journal Entries Edit
After speaking with a follower about offering to Meridia:
- One of Meridia's followers has told me that the Daedra can be summoned if something from the corpse of an undead creature is left as an offering at the statue. [You must be level 10 to begin this quest.]
After summoning Meridia:
- After I made the correct offering, Meridia appeared and spoke to me. The Daedra told me of a cult of necromancers in the Howling Cave who have been stealing from graves in oder to raise an undead army. Meridia wants the necromancers killed. I can reach them from a secret door in the back of the cave.
After killing all 5 necromancers:
- I have killed the necromancers in Howling Cave. I should return to the Shrine of Meridia.
After speaking with Meridia again:
- Meridia was gratified that I had performed the task assigned to me. As a reward, I have been given the Ring of Khajiiti.
