The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Guide - Daedric Shrine Quests


Location: West of Skingrad.
Requires: Bonemeal, Mort Flesh, or Electoplasm.
Level Requirement: Level 10
Reward: Ring of Khajiiti

Meridia's Shrine is located west of Skingrad. Start heading west from the stables and you will eventually reach the shrine. When you arrive, speak to Basil Ernarde there. He tells you that summoning Meridia requires an offering of undead remains. This means either Bonemeal from Skeletons, Mort Flesh from Zombies or Electoplasm from Ghosts.

Offer Bonemeal, Mort Flesh, or Ectoplasm at Meridia's altar to summon the Daedric Lord.

It's easy enough to acquire any of the required offerings, as undead creatures are common to ruins and other dungeons. Alternatively, you can likely find these ingredients in stock at the 'All Things Alchemical' shop in Skingrad. When you have the remains of an undead creature, approach Meridia's Shrine and offer it to summon her. Your character must be at least level 10 to begin this quest.

Meridia intensely dislikes the undead. Because of this hatred, she wants you to destroy the cult of Necromancers who are holed up in Howling Cave. Howling Cave is located southeast of Skingrad. With 'Meridia' set as your active quest, follow the arrow on your compass to reach Howling Cave. You'll encounter an array of undead creatures inside, so ensure that you have some means of disposing of Ghosts (a Magic, Silver, or Daedric weapon) before entering.

The Necromancers are in the Howling Cave Lower Galleries area. You may have to kill a powerful undead creature to lower the rock wall blocking the door to the Lower Galleries. Upon entering this area, each Necromancer will appear as a green arrow on your compass. The Necromancers are surrounded by undead creatures, so try your best to avoid getting surrounded. If there are too many enemies on you at once, consider retreating to the previous area. The enemies that were after you will more than likely follow, but at least you'll be ready as they come through the door.

Kill the Necromancers in Howling Cave.

Once you have destroyed the cult of the Necromancers in Howling Cave, return to Meridia's Shrine. Summon Meridia and she will reward you with the Ring of Khajiiti. This is a rather useful ring; it adds Chameleon and Fortify Speed effects while equipped, making it a good ring for stealth-based characters.
