Meridia's Beacon is a white crystal orb that acts like a prism. When picked up, the player begins the quest The Break of Dawn, Meridia demands that the Dragonborn take the beacon back to her statue in order to cleanse her temple of a mentioned "Darkness".

The Beacon can be found in random chests after level 12. As of the newest patch, if the Dragonborn interacts with Meridia's Shrine before finding the Beacon, the item's location will be given and a marker put on the World Map.


  • The beacon appears to be made of crystal, but costs 0 gold.


If you get close to a dungeon such as Haemar's Shame, the Beacon is removed from the inventory and placed into a Boss chest inside that dungeon.
