Block Training is a quest in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. The basic trainers for Block are Fadus Calidius and Huurwen at the Skingrad and Anvil Fighters Guilds respectively. The mid level trainers are happy Lum gro-Baroth of the Chorrol Fighters Guild and grape-grower Ambroise Canne who has a house in Skingrad.

Upon reaching level 70 block, they will direct the Hero to Andragil, a crazy woman who lives above Dro'shanji's house in Bravil. To be trained by her, she wants the Hero to prove their "prowess." This means unequipping all weapons and armor, and take a beating from her warhammer for 45 seconds, and don't get killed in the process. If the Hero survives, she will then offer training.

  • It's possible to keep a shield, to protect from more vicious blows.
  • Lowering the difficulty to minimum will minimize the damage taken, and does not affect the quest otherwise.
