Brelyna's Practice is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
"We're all trying to become better mages right? Well I need somebody I can practice a few spells on."
Brelyna Maryon


Brelyna Maryon is in need of someone to test her spells upon, and asks for the Dragonborn to help. Completing this quest opens up Brelyna as both a follower and potential spouse.


Speak to Brelyna Maryon after the quest "Under Saarthal" is completed, then agree to let her test out her spells. If she is asked for something in return, one will receive a leveled enchanted Necklace. However, the necklace will still be given even if she is not asked for a reward.

After Brelyna casts her first spell, one's vision will take on a greenish hue. Brelyna apologizes, and tells the Dragonborn that the effects should wear off within a few hours.

Wait for two to four hours, then return to Brelyna. She assures the Dragonborn that she will get the spell right and that this will be her last test. Once the spell has been cast, the camera will switch into third person. The Dragonborn will then be transformed into a number of animals found in Skyrim. Afterwords, she will return the Dragonborn to their original state, stating that she will abandon this line of study.

Once Brelyna is spoken to again, she will ask for her experiments to not be spoken of again, and will reward the Dragonborn with a leveled enchanted necklace if they have not already received it.
