[edit] Detailed Walkthrough

[edit] Talking to Pantea

When the Fire Festival marks the end of the Tending the Flames quest, talking to Pantea will make her say: "That damn fool! I should ring [sic] her neck!" When asked to elaborate she will explain about a foolish student, Larina, who stole Pantea's flute and sold it to a necromancer, who believed in Larina's story about the flute being able to make the dead dance. Pantea is understandably upset as the flute has been passed down through seventeen generations, so she asks you to retrieve it for her – right away.

[edit] Hob's Fall Cave

A map marker will now point you towards Hob's Fall Cave, a necromancer den northeast of Frostflow Lighthouse in the Winterhold region. While the cave itself seems straightforward, it has quite a few secrets worth exploring, so enter and take a look around. The ledge overlooking the first room is where you will return after a successful trek, so locate the icy path to the left and make your way through the tunnels and fight the hostile necromancers guarding the desk with a soul gem and a treasure chest. Proceed forward until you reach a suspension bridge. Look over the edge and notice the necromancer camp deep down below, with an alchemy lab and several bedrolls. Use the ledges to jump down for a surprise attack, then loot the camp for a rare unusual gem and a copy of the Restoration skill book The Exodus.

[edit] Finding the Flute

Head back up, use the path to get back on track, and then fight the necromancers guarding the next room. Examine the arcane enchanter for a copy of the Enchanting skill book Enchanter's Primer, then activate the pull chain and either dodge or destroy the spellcaster traps. The final room is guarded by three necromancers and contains the chest with the flute, a black soul gem, and a locked cage containing a dead body. After taking the flute, jump down from the ledge and exit the cave the way you came in.

Back in the Bards College, Pantea will be overwhelmed with joy and will teach you a few tricks she learned while playing for the Winterhold wizards, specifically a one-point boost to all your Magic skills, including Alteration, Conjuration, Destruction, Enchanting, Illusion, and Restoration.

[edit] Notes

[edit] Bugs

    • This bug is fixed by version 1.4 of the Official Skyrim Patch.
    • Pc22.png PC players can use this console command to advance the quest: setstage bardscollegeflute 40
  • After you turn in the quest, the flute will remain in your inventory, still marked as a quest item.
    • This bug is fixed by version 1.9.26.0.8 of the Official Skyrim Patch.
    • Pc22.png PC players can remove the quest item using the following console code: Player.removeitem 000DABA7 1
  • It's possible that you can turn in the flute to Pantea but the quest won't complete.
