A Return To Your Roots is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

This quest is started in Blackreach by collecting a crimson nirnroot.

WalkthroughEdit

The Dragonborn must find Sinderion's Field Journal, which instructs them to find thirty crimson nirnroots.

Crimson nirnroots, unlike normal nirnroots, are found only in Blackreach. Crimson nirnroots still make the sound of chimes when they are nearby and have a white/yellow glow emanating from them. Going into audio settings and turning the music down will make the chime sound easier to hear.

When thirty are found, the Dragonborn can bring them to Avrusa Sarethi, located to the southwest of Rift Watchtower, at the Sarethi Farm.

The Dragonborn is rewarded with the Nirnroot Missive book and the Sinderion's Serendipity active effect.

JournalEdit

Journal Entry
  • Objective: Discover the significance of Crimson Nirnroot
  • Objective: Collect Crimson Nirnroot in Blackreach

I've discovered an unusual ingredient called Crimson Nirnroot.

I've discovered the remains of Sinderion, an alchemist from Skingrad in Cyrodiil. He was exploring Blackreach in search of the Crimson Nirnroot, and appeared to be on the brink of an amazing discovery.

  • Objective: Bring 30 Crimson Nirnroot to Avrusa Sarethi

I have brought my Crimson Nirnroot to Avrusa Sarethi, a former student of Sinderion. She was overjoyed that I was able to complete Sinderion's field work and pledged to continue his research in his memory.

TriviaEdit

  • The name of the quest, "A Return to Your Roots," is a reference to the Oblivion quest, Seeking Your Roots. Both quests involve Nirnroots and Sinderion.
  • Clairvoyance can be used to locate crimson nirnroot while the quest is active.
  • There are at least forty-four crimson nirnroots in Blackreach, so it is not necessary to find them all.
  • While they can be found anywhere on land, Crimson nirnoots are still found more commonly near water. One is in the central pool of the Derelict Pumphouse, while another is found far from water, high up where the frost trolls live.
  • Crimson nirnroots will respawn after ten days. Harvesting them will still count towards the quest.
  • Crimson nirnroot cannot be grown in a garden or greenhouse.HF

    • If you wait a few in-game days the nirnroot will respawm, so you can harvest the spots you already found. No need to seek 30 different ninroot.
    • My favourite quest where I usually pick up over 40 nirnroots :D Anyways, there are a lot around the Tower of Mzark (was that the name of it),...
