Estormo is an Altmer member of the Thalmor. He is encountered inside Labyrinthian, after Morokei is killed. He was sent by Ancano to retrieve The Staff of Magnus from the Dragonborn. After a brief conversation, he attacks.
It serves as the seventh quest in the College of Winterhold sequence of quests. Traversing Labyrinthian, the Dragonborn searches for the fabled Staff of Magnus, which is needed to control the Eye of Magnus. Morokei, a Dragon Priest, holds the staff and must be battled to obtain it. The battle is difficult and recommended for levels 20 and above.
This section contains bugs related to Estormo. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:
- Estormo may not appear in Labyrinthian.
- If the Dragonborn sneaks up on him he will approach and speak to them. If they then hide and approach him again, he will not attack, even if he detects them. Doing this, one can sneak around and backstab him, or avoid the fight.
- It is possible to yield while fighting him.
- If the Dragonborn's weapons are drawn when approaching him, then immediately sheath them when done talking to him, he will not fight them.
