|Impatience of a Saint|
|Reward||Saint Jiub's Opus|
Locket of Saint Jiub
While exploring the Soul Cairn, I've come across the soul of a strange Dunmer named Jiub. He claims to be writing the second volume of his life's story but lacks the notes from his first in order to complete it. He's asked for my help in locating the pages which are likely spread across the entire Soul Cairn...quite a daunting task.
He asks the Dragonborn to find the ten pages of his book spread across the Soul Cairn. Upon completion of this quest, the Dragonborn will be rewarded the Locket of Saint Jiub and a pristine copy of Saint Jiub's Opus.
The staircase that The Dragonborn descends to enter the Soul Cairn is located in the south-western end of the map. The prison holding Valerica is directly north-east of that staircase, and roughly halfway between the two is a large, fortified wall cutting across that path perpendicularly: NW to SE.
Jiub himself is located to the southeast of Valerica's prison, beyond the farmer and his two cows, on the southern side of a large building.
|Page 1||On the south-facing side of the fortified wall, run along it heading east. There is a set of stairs adjoining the wall, at the top of which is a soul standing next to a window. Next to the window is the first Opus page.|
|Page 2||To the north of Valerica's location will be a small building with a broken Word Wall and a chest. The page is in front of the chest. This small building is more-or-less adjoined to the prison where Valerica is held. This is where Durnehviir later sits.|
|Page 3||On the south-facing side of the fortified wall, head west to find a small building connected to where the wall forms a corner. Heading into this building and through to the other side leads to a low, sandy-looking area with two purple wells and another small building (with a crystal on top) behind it. At the top of that building, beneath the crystal, is a chest - the page should be in front of it.|
Starting from where Valerica was found, turn right to go east around the building to the back. Go up the stairs (many souls are up here), and face towards the wall of the fort itself while climing upwards - you should come to a long, covered corridor with a pile of bones at the back next to a chest. The page is in front of that chest. A Mistman appears out of the pile of bones as you approach.
While you're there, see the instructions for finding Page 7.
|Page 5||Go to Jiub's campfire. Not far to the south there will be a square, stone-floored area with a purple-glowing well, and a wisp soul circling it. The page is on the floor by the well. There are also a couple of bonemen roaming the area.|
|Page 6||Page 6 is nearby the stairs the Dragonborn descended on entering the Soul Cairn. Upon coming down them, look for the second building on the right (see Page 8) - the page is located in there next to a chest. This building is easiest to find by sticking to the path: it forks away to the right near the two souls sitting on the ruined walls.|
|Page 7||Start where Page 4 was discovered. There is a path that heads directly eastwards away from that fort. Travel down it, and there should be a purple pool with light coming from it in the distance straight ahead. Go towards it and you'll see many souls sitting around it like it's a campfire - go beyond them to find a small shrine on a raised stone platform. Head up the steps, and the page will be on floor in front of a lantern.|
|Page 8||Like Page 6, this one is near to the staircase you descended on entering the Soul Cairn, only this time it's in the first building on the right instead of the second. This one involves shooting an arrow (or spell) at both of the glowing orbs next to the doorway - doing this should lower the bars to let you in. Sticking to the same path but heading back to the stairway will take you towards Page 6.|
From Valerica's location, turn left and travel west until you reach a building with a crystal on top: there is a soul looking forlornly down at a skeleton, and another trapped in a cage beneath the crystal itself. When you get there, use this location as a viewpoint: look to the north, off to the left, and you should see another crystal atop a more extensive, fort-like building. This is where Page 9 is.
Head there and enter via the steps, travel through the maze-like layout, and find the portal at the back left-hand end of the maze. Jump on the glowing portal which will teleport you onto the roof. The page will be on other side of the chest, beneath the health-draining crystal.
|Page 10||Stand in the gap of the fortified wall facing north-east, look to your right, you will see a blue light, head that direction, there will be a ghost named Morven Stroud next to his broken carriage. The page is on top of a barrel to the left of the carriage.|
| While exploring the Soul Cairn, I've come across the soul of a strange Dunmer named Jiub. He claims to be writing the second volume of his life's story but lacks the notes from his first in order to complete it. He's asked for my help in locating the pages which are likely spread across the entire Soul Cairn...quite a daunting task.
|I've located all of the notes that Jiub lost when he arrived in the Soul Cairn. I should return them to him when I get the chance.
|I've returned all of Jiub's lost notes to the poor soul. He presented me with an an amulet and a pristine copy of his first volume in appreciation for my efforts.
- Jiub is the Dunmer prisoner travelling with the Nerevarine at the start of Morrowind. (He mentions getting transferred from prison and travelling to Seyda Neen to drop of someone, before he was taken to Vivec)
- Sometimes page 9 will disappear from the inventory completely.
- If page 9 is not appearing near the chest on the roof, use Unrelenting Force on the spot where it should be. Then go back down into the maze and use the map to locate where the chest is (if you zoom in enough, the details are easy to make out). Head through the maze to the spot underneath the chest. If the page is not on the floor in the area, check the ceiling in this spot. The page can appear stuck to the ceiling and can be shot down easily with a projectile weapon.
- If you kill the skeletons next to the chests immediately, then the remains will cover up notes 2 and 6, and you will not be able to collect it. You can, however, blow them away with destruction spells or the Unrelenting Force shout.
- If a page becomes unobtainable or you simply do not feel like finding them all, if you have the Ebony Blade you can simply drop the blade and pick it back up and it will count as finding a page for the Opus. This can be done as many times as desired. The unique bow Zephyr may have this ability too.
