      1. Talk to Serana. After the ensuing battle, head through the opening that leads out to Skyrim once again and travel to Bruca’s Leap.
      2. Head northwest to reach your next destination. Once again, I recommend riding Arvak.
      3. Path through the cavern with the creepy white spider webs and go up the creek. You will have some more randoms here so stay on your toes and watch your resources.
      4. Once you’ve located Auriel’s Bow, speak to Gelebor. After the sequence, he will tell you about the wayshrine.
      5. Talk to Gelebor one more time, and when you are ready, open the door and head through it to Darkfall Passage.
      6. You will run into a bunch of Chaurus enemies here but you will be fine- the passageways are narrow for the most part and you have your ally backing you up as well.
      7. Make your way deeper into the passage until you run across the bridge through the waterfall.
      8. Once you get through the passage, talk to Prelate. You will have to fill the vessel for the initiation.
      9. Fill your cup with the liquid from the structure in the center and head outside. You have to find 3 out of 4 more locations to fill from out here. They are all in close vicinity and are clearly marked on the map in case you need to refer to them.
      10. Prelate Nirilor will give you the same exact greeting at each filling site. Hey, at least that’s how you know you’re in the right place.
      11. To get to the last location, you will have to head into the Glacial Crevice and go deep to the point where you pass the gate all the way down to the Forgotten Vale.
      12. Go ALL the way down (it might take a while). Is it me, or did Prelate seem extra excited that you found this one??
      13. After you draw water from the Basin, you will have to gain entry to the Inner Sanctum.
      14. Head past the giant statue and examine the basin.
      15. Once you go through the large door, your task will be to locate Vyrthur.
      16. Go down the path and enter the crevice to Auriel’s chapel.
      17. You will locate Vyrthur in here. Approach and examine him in order to confront him.
      18. Follow Serana to track down Vyrthur after the fight. He has climbed up onto the balcony.
      19. You will have to fight Vyrthur once more before talking to Gelebor about the restoration of the wayshrine.
      20. Enjoy the last sequence of events before your completion of the Touching The Sky quest.

    How many bugs will the day one release of Skyrim Dawnguard for the XBOX 360 add-on have?

    First estimates? A whole lot. Bethesda doesn’t have a great track record fixing bugs, and people are already reporting all sorts of problems. Hopefully the major issues will be fixed soon!

    I guess there is different aohrpacpes to solve a problem, I will try this one now But what I currently do also works pretty well, I don’t have a video so I will try to explain in text. Gently tap fast on the twist motion while slowly move the lockpick around, once it starts moving you know you’re in the right spot. Make sure you only lightly tap on the twisting motion or the picks will break like toothpicks. Hope this helps those who can’t do it the listening way.

    Nov24 I have discovered that igilletnent real estate agents almost everywhere are getting set to FSBO Advertising and marketing. They are acknowledging that it’s in addition to placing a sign post in the front property. It’s really about building associations with these suppliers who at some time will become buyers. So, when you give your time and effort to serving these suppliers go it alone the Law associated with Reciprocity kicks in. Good blog post.

I recently found what I hoped for before you know it in the least. Quite unusual. Is likely to appreciate it for those who add forums or something, website theme . a tones way for your customer to communicate. Nice task..
