Hunt for Undead is a Temple quest available during the events of The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall. The Agent is tasked with vanquishing an undead creature from a dungeon using a sample of Temple blessed Holy Water.

BackgroundEdit

After joining one of the Eight Divine Temples scattered throughout the Iliac Bay, the Agent will be assigned randomly determined quests to complete by the Temple's missionary.

ObjectivesEdit

  • Speak with a missionary from a joined Temple.
  • (Potentially) Take the Holy Water to be blessed by a Priestess in another town.
    • Speak with the Priestess to have her bless the water.
  • Head to and enter the dungeon to search for the undead creature.
    • Attack and kill the creature with the Holy Water in the inventory.
  • Return to the missionary before the time limit expires.

WalkthroughEdit

After joining one of the Temples, the quest giving missionary will reveal to the Agent that there is a "dangerous mission" for them, involving an undead creature. Accepting the quest will reveal that the undead creature must be vanquished to allow the Temple to begin "cleansing" one of the Iliac Bay's many dungeons. In order to do so, the missionary will hand the Agent a sample of Holy Water to "sprinkle" on the undead foe, before sending them off to find slay the spirit.

There is also a one in three chance that the Holy Water handed to the Agent requires a blessing from the Temple. Knowing this, the missionary will give instructions to the Agent to meet a Temple priestess in another town, who will bless the water for free.

Holiest Holy WaterEdit

Should the Holy Water require blessing, the Agent must head to the priestess in the specified town, or otherwise the quest will be impossible to complete. Fortunately she can be found in that town's Temple, and will bless the Holy Water for no charge. Once obtained the Agent can move on to the target dungeon.

A Divine DestructionEdit

Upon entering the intended dungeon, the Agent will have to search for the undead creature themselves, likely facing generic dungeon enemies. The specific undead creature will identify themselves when hit, stating:

Quotebg
"I am [monster's name]! You may slay my material form, but I will always return to my home here in [dungeon]!"
Undead Creature[src]

As long as the Agent holds the blessed Holy Water in their inventory, the creature will be vanquished when killed, confirmed by the following:

Quotebg
"As you sprinkle the holy water over [monster's name]'s remains, a despairing wail echoes through the dark halls of [dungeon], slowly fading into the distance."
The Agent[src]

With the undead creature dead and its soul vanquished, the Agent must return to the missionary who gave them the quest, before the time limit expires, in order to complete it.

RewardsEdit

The success or failure of the Agent in undertaking the quest will affect their reputation in the Temple:

Success
Faction Reputation
Deity of the Temple +5
Temple +2
Failure
Faction Reputation
Deity of the Temple -2
Temple -1
