 Detailed Walkthrough
 Orders from Caius
You return to Caius Cosades in Balmora after being cured (sort of) of Corprus over in Tel Fyr. Once again you are promoted to Operative and are actually now head of the Blades in Vvardenfell, since Caius is being recalled to the Imperial City. Talk to Caius about your new promotion to get some handy items as well as use of his house. His last orders to you before he leaves are to continue to investigate the lost prophecies, taking them to Nibani Maesa up in the Urshilaku Camp when you find them. First stop is to meet Mehra Milo over in the Hall of Wisdom, Vivec Temple Canton (who we visited before). We know Milo was being watched and she will leave a message in her private quarters under the code word AMAYA. Also, stop by the Mages Guild in the Foreign Quarter and speak to Janand Maulinie to purchase some Divine Intervention scrolls needed for this quest.
 Looking for Milo
So, take a jaunt over to the Hall of Wisdom in Vivec to look for Milo. Looking in the library where she was last time, you see no sight of her. Asking the other librarians you find out that her private quarters are opposite the Canon Offices in the Hall of Wisdom. Her quarters are locked (level 20) but by this point you should have spells, scrolls or picks to quickly dispose of it. The key can even be found behind a drape near the door. It's obvious that Milo is not in, but a Note to Amaya on the dresser catches your eye. The note mentions that Milo is over at the Inquisitor at the Ministry of Truth and that you should bring two Divine Intervention scrolls. She goes on to mention that the guard, Alvela Saram will let you past if you mention you are looking for her and that she has left two levitation potions for you to use. The letter sounds a little suspicious, but you decide to head over to the Ministry and check it out.
 Ministry of Truth
The Ministry of Truth is that large floating rock over the Temple Canton (hard to miss) which is reached using levitation. You can use a levitation potion or spell, or instead you can use the Shrine to Stop the Moon, located below the ministry, where you will be asked to donate a potion of rising force (a bargain, cheap, standard, quality, or exclusive potion will work, but not a custom potion). In exchange for your donation, you are blessed with a powerful levitation spell (100 points for 1440 seconds).
Outside the top entrance to the ministry you will find the guard Alvela Saram. Talking with Alvela reveals that Milo is a prisoner and you are tasked with breaking her out. She gives you the main key and suggests to enter using the back door. Keys to open other doors inside must be found.
Once inside the Ministry, do not let anyone see you as they will attack and call the guards. The NPCs here are well armored and hit hard, so unless you're prepared, a stealthy approach may be best (any form of invisibility or chameleon helps). The Prison Keep is at the top of the Ministry and has only a level 20 lock guarding it (to the right of the upper entrance in the desk). Once you enter you may be attacked by a few guards so be careful. Mehra is in the right-most holding cell waiting for you. Overall, there's technically no wrong way to do this, get to Mehra however you can.
Note: If you are the Patriarch of the Tribunal Temple no guards will attack you and they will even tell you where to find the keys. The Grand Inquisitor talks tough when addressed but doesn't stop you from taking the key from his desk. If you are not a Temple member and have an Indoril helmet, cuirass, and pauldrons, and your disposition with the Inquisitor is at least 70, and you are not of a beast race, you can tell him you have proper authorization and he will give you his key and the guards will refuse to attack you. Even as the Patriarch, though, the guards will attack you if you take the prison key from the prison guard's desk, unless you talk to the head guard, Duldrar Saren. Strangely enough you can open the door by means other than the prison key and the guards don't mind that. If you are any lower rank in the Temple, the guards will attack you on sight, unless your disposition with them is 100 or you are an Adept, in which case they will give you a warning the first time you activate them and attack on the second.
 Escaping with Milo
Once you find Mehra, she outlines the escape plan. You are to give her one Divine Intervention scroll for her to make her escape, and you escape the same way or another, as you like. You are to meet each other at the secret Dissident Priests Monastery at Holamayan. You are to meet a woman on the east docks of Ebonheart (just southwest of Vivec) named Blatta Hateria. Tell Blatta that Mehra sent you and that you want to go fishing. Blatta will then bring you to Holamayan where you and Milo will meet up. Once there, you'll receive the lost prophecies from the Dissident Priests' leader Gilvas Barelo. Additionally, the entrance to Holamayan is concealed with magic. Speak to Vevrana Aryon, a monk on the dock at Holamayan about it.
 Traveling to Holamayan
So, make your escape as you wish. If you use a Divine scroll as suggested, you'll actually end up in the middle of Ebonheart which is rather convenient. Blatta is on the dock asking if she knows you. Once you mention you want to go fishing, the option to travel to Holamayan will be added to her destination list (labeled as Azura's Coast Region). You meet Vevrana on the docks when you arrive, and are informed that the magical shield guarding Holamayan opens only at dusk and dawn, meaning you will probably have to rest until the proper time. She also can arrange your trip back to Vivec when you choose. Dusk and dawn times are 6pm to 8pm and 6am to 8am, respectively.
 Dissident Priests and Lost Prophecies
You can find Mehra with Gilvas Barelo just off to the right in the library when you enter Holamayan. Gilvas has some information on Dagoth Ur, among other things, as well as the lost prophecies that you have been looking for. You receive three notes from him relating to the prophecies: The Lost Prophecy, The Seven Curses and Kagrenac's Tools. Talking to him about the Nerevar also nets you three more books. Make sure you exhaust all dialogue possibilities with Gilvas to get all the information that you can. By all accounts, you are becoming closer and closer to being the true Nerevarine. Now that Caius is gone, you have no one to report to, but don't forget that Nibani Maesa in the Urshilaku Camp wanted to speak with you again once you've found the lost prophecies.
- Caius Cosades will disappear after giving this quest and having left his house or slept in his bed, so if you want training from him, make sure to do it before leaving.
- You get the first 20 disposition increase with Mehra Milo when you receive the quest, and the other 40 when you hand her the scroll.
- Milo's Quarters key might not appear and you have to open the door with a lockpick or a spell.
