[edit] Detailed Walkthrough

[edit] The Midden Dark

While exploring The Midden Dark beneath the College of Winterhold, you will discover a circular room littered with blood and skeletons. In the center of the room sits a small statue in the form of a gauntlet. On the table nearby there will be a key and an incident report which describes a failed summoning ritual and four rings.

[edit] Ornamental Rings

Once all rings are placed on the gauntlet ...

The rings mentioned can be found in a locked chest, located in the Arcanaeum. You can use the provided key or pick the lock in order to obtain the four ornamental rings: Pithi's Ring, Treoy's Ring, Balwen's Ring, and Katarina's Ring. Once you have obtained the rings, return to the gauntlet in the Midden Dark. Note that the rings are owned, and removing them from the chest is considered stealing.

Place the rings on the gauntlet by activating each finger. On the Index Finger goes Katarina's Ring, on the Middle Finger goes Treoy's Ring, on the Ring Finger goes Balwen's Ring, and on the Little Finger goes Pithi's Ring.

[edit] The Summoning

... Velehk Sain will be summoned.
Velehk Sain's treasure

Once all four rings are placed on the appropriate fingers, the fingers will curl into a fist, and a Dremora pirate named Velehk Sain will be summoned. He will bargain with you for his release, offering treasure from his pirating days in exchange. You can choose out of two options:

  • Release: If you release him, he will vanish and you will receive Velehk Sain's Treasure Map. The map leads to a hidden stash of treasure (leveled general treasure), located west-northwest of Winterhold, and north of Saarthal, on an island with a statue of Talos. Note that there are several statues of Talos in the surrounding area; the one you need is the one where the statue is at the very apex of the small island. (map). The treasure is magically hidden and will only reveal itself if Velehk is released. The treasure is conjured by your proximity, you will not see it from a distance.
  • Kill: You can opt to kill him and loot his corpse for two scimitars, a daedra heart, Hammerfell garb, and Redguard boots.

[edit] Notes

  • Unlike other quest items, the rings can be removed from your inventory. Velehk Sain cannot be summoned without the rings, so you should be careful not to misplace them.
  • The rings are ornamental and cannot be worn by you. They will be stored with miscellaneous items in your inventory.
  • If you are quick enough and have a strong enough weapon, you can release him, get the map, and then kill him as he disappears. His body will vanish before it can be looted. However, if you exit the conversation after you pick the option to release him and before you get the map, you can kill him quickly enough for his body to be looted.
  • Velehk Sain's survival seems to be necessary for the treasure reveal to trigger. You can release him and receive the map, then kill him to loot the body, but the treasure will not spawn.
  • If Urag gro-Shub catches you stealing the rings from the chest in the Arcaneum, he will react by turning hostile, and remove them from your inventory. At that point they will no longer be obtainable, as they cannot be pickpocketed back. The only way to solve this is to reload a previous save.
