Hircine is a quest in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Hircine's followers have told the Hero that, in order to summon the Daedric Prince, they must leave an offering of a wolf pelt or bear pelt at the statue.
Hircine will ask the Hero to travel to Harcane Grove in the southwest, to kill a unicorn and bring back its horn. The unicorn is guarded by three Minotaur of the Grove, special Minotaurs, and the unicorn itself may also be hostile.
Methods to kill the unicornEdit
Another method would be to mount the Unicorn (by avoiding the Minotaurs completely and approaching it without a weapon drawn), and leading it to fight difficult monsters. Despite its strength, it's just like any other horse in the game, in that it has a slow overall attack speed and a high knockback rate (low agility). Lead it into a confrontation with a quick, difficult creature (Clannfear, Mountain Lions, sometimes the quick attacks of a Black or Brown Bear will finish it), and finish off the creatures (or grab the unicorn horn and run) once the Unicorn is dead.
A third method is to mount the unicorn and travel to a high cliff. Jump off the cliff (which is not too high) while riding the unicorn and it will suffer fall damage; repeat until the unicorn has died.
Another Method is to use a destruction staff (e.g. Staff of Shock) and electrocute the Unicorn and Minotaurs. It is also good to have Shadowmere (rewarded after a Dark Brotherhood quest) as she can attract some of the attention (she attacks enemies which makes her useful and is quite fast).
Hircine's followers have told me that, in order to summon the Daedra, I must leave an offering of a wolf or bear pelt at the statue. [You must be level 17 to begin this quest.]
After I made the required offering, Hircine was summoned, and spoke to me. He told me that he desires the horn of a unicorn. I may be able to find a unicorn in the Harcane Grove.
I have killed the unicorn and retrieved its horn. I should return to the shrine of Hircine.
Hircine was impressed with my skill in hunting the unicorn. He has rewarded me with the Savior's Hide.
- One easy way to have the unicorn killed is to take it into Cloud Ruler Temple, close the gates, and let it watch the two Blades fight. This causes it to attack and the Blades will kill it.
