Side Quests

The White Phial

  1. Travel to Windhelm.
  2. Go to the local alchemy shop, the White Phial, located near the market stalls.
  3. Watch and listen inside to the argument between Nurelion and Quintus Navale.
  4. Speak to Nurelion after the argument ends. He will tell you more about his search for the legendary White Phial.
  5. Agree to retrieve the White Phial for him.
  6. Follow the active quest icon to the Forsaken Cave, and enter.
  7. Watch for a trigger plate trap (darts) on the floor shortly after passing through the entrance cave and an Iron Door.
  8. Tread carefully through the Draugr crypts, slaying them as they come. The main path here is pretty straightforward, just stay on it as it leads you to the Forsaken Crypt.
  9. Watch for a swinging blade trap just before the final burial sanctum.
  10. Defeat Curamil and his Draugr fellows in the burial sanctum. Consider using the swinging blade trap to your advantage.
  11. Head up to the Word Wall and absorb the Word of Power after defeating Curamil.
  12. Activate the nearby ancient bowl to open a secret door leading to an alchemy lab and the Cracked White Phial.
  13. Return to Nurelion in Windhelm and give him the Cracked White Phial. He’s a little less than grateful.
  14. Speak to Quintus, who will properly thank and reward you for your efforts. Quest complete!
