 Detailed Walkthrough
 Orders from Caius
Returning to Caius Cosades in Balmora after your journey to the Urshilaku Camp yields you a task (along with 400 gold) to raid and wipe out a Sixth House base near Gnaar Mok, in particular to kill the priest Dagoth Gares. Since Caius doesn't know the exact location, you are to report to Raesa Pullia in Buckmoth Legion Fort.
 Report from Raesa
Buckmoth Legion Fort is just south of Ald'ruhn; the quickest way is by Silt Strider or Guild Guide. Raesa is just inside the main fort interior entrance. She gives you the report on the Sixth House base they discovered. Apparently, out of the original scouting party, only one person returned. He died shortly thereafter from the dreaded Corprus disease, but first mentioned a cavern on the coast named Ilunibi. Though Raesa is not familiar with it, she suggests asking the locals in Gnaar Mok about it. If you haven't been to Gnaar Mok yet, its on the west coast of the island, southwest of Ald'ruhn. Raesa gives you directions to walk there, but the fastest method is to take the Ald'ruhn Silt Strider to Khuul, then take the local boat to Gnaar Mok.
 Rumors in Gnaar Mok
Once you get to Gnaar Mok, talk to just about anyone to find out information on the Ilunibi cavern (you will need to raise their disposition to 50 or higher to get the information). You find out that the caverns are located on the north end of the island, on Khartag Point. You should have Khartag Point marked on your map when you ask about it, just a little northwest of the village. You should find the caverns named as Ilunibi, Carcass of the Saint.
 Ilunibi Caverns
Just inside the entrance to Ilunibi you'll find a very nice little waterfall. It gets much worse just farther in, however. Most of the monsters are random, but depend on your level: lower-level characters are most likely to encounter Skeletons, Ash Slaves, Ash Zombies and Scamps, higher-level characters more likely to have a chance of seeing Bonewalkers, Ash Ghouls, Ascended Sleepers, Atronachs and Golden Saints. There's also a fair number of Dreamers around.
Once you get into the final section of the caverns, Soul's Rattle, you should encounter Dagoth Gares, a unique Ash Ghoul. He will initiate conversation with you and you should try and get as much information as you can before you exit: he can tell you some pretty interesting things about the history of Nerevar and Dagoth-Ur, at least as seen from Dagoth's insane corrupted perspective. Gares is tough, casts spells, and hits pretty hard, but doesn't take too many big hits before he goes down. The bad part is that when he dies, he curses you with the Corprus disease: evidently this fulfills a part of the Nerevarine Prophecies. After killing Gares, don't forget to loot the bell chamber nearby as it has some some excellent loot (including the Fists of Randagulf).
At this point in the Main Quest you'll start seeing several barely dressed Dunmer standing still on the roads. They call themselves Dreamers and are people who have fallen under the influence of Dagoth Ur's growing powers. They're the same Dreamers that you may have already been seeing in other Sixth House caves and they will attack on sight.
 Return to Caius
Once you've finished in the caverns, head back to Caius in Balmora (walk to Caldera, east of Gnaar Mok, and use a Guild Guide, or walk a little farther to Balmora southeast of Gnaar Mok - or simply cast Almsivi Intervention from the cave.) Upon your return, you will be promoted to Traveler. Furthermore, Caius has been gathering some information of his own, and found someone who is doing research into Corprus Disease with a view to finding a cure: the Telvanni wizard, Divayth Fyr, who he suggests you visit, on the grounds that if he can't help you, nobody else can.
- If you kill Gares and do not receive the Corprus disease, you can correct this on the PC version of the game by opening the console (~ tilde key) and entering the commands:
- In unpatched versions of the game, you can make quite a lot of money from Caius Cosades. When he asks you about your orders at the beginning of this quest (after you return from Urshilaku), keep selecting the answer: "I'm willing, but cautious" over and over again. Caius will keep giving you 400 gold, if your level is < 6.
