Peryite is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. After a misguided attempt to summon Peryite, the souls of his worshippers became trapped between worlds. Peryite asks that the Hero travel to the plane of Oblivion and retrieve their souls.


At the ShrineEdit

Peryite (Quest)

Worshippers frozen in time

Upon arriving at the Shrine of Peryite, the Hero will find that something is not right about the shrine. All of the followers are arranged in a circle and whenever they attempt to speak to them, they do not respond and appear to be lost in oblivion, which as it turns out is quite an accurate description.

When they get closer to the statue of the Daedra, a message appears and one obtain the Shrine of Peryite quest. When they speak to Peryite he informs them that his followers had the arrogance to attempt to make him come to the mortal plane, via the classic daedra lord summoning. However, they accidentally separated their bodies from their souls. As a result, Peryite requests that they enter Oblivion and retrieve their souls.

Realm of PeryiteEdit

Peryite (Quest) RealmOfPeryite Soul

Worshipper soul

One will notice immediately that this particularly large plane of Oblivion is just that; large. Sprinkled about the Realm of Peryite are leveled Daedra including two Dremora Valkynaz. The Hero must kill them as the souls of the worshippers are frightened by the Dremora and the Daedra, and will run away senselessly if one neglect to kill nearby enemies, they may also run into the lava pits.

All souls are marked, follow the path to each one of them. Peryite or the souls of the worshippers have lit tremendously large fires near each of the worshippers themselves. Walk up to them and activate them and they will be saved.

Peryite (Quest) RealmOfPeryite Door

The door to exit

Once all the souls are found the Hero will need to return to the place that they entered from, but Peryite will provide a magical gate for them to return to Cyrodiil through.

Shrine of PeryiteEdit

Once they have arrived back they are to speak with Peryite once more and he will reward them with the Spell Breaker: a magical shield which reflects 30% of magic when equipped.

  • Quest complete


  • This quest involves a very extensive venture into the huge plane of Oblivion. Bring the best armor, weapons, and potions.
  • Sometimes the worshippers may run out into the lava. A fix is to reload a previous save, or run out into the lava and activate them.
  • Although it may or may not help, Water Walking with a high fire resistance is one of the best ways to complete this quest. Otherwise, if they've already acquired the Boots of Springheel Jak, one may just want to jump off the water and drink potions or cast spells to heal. Either way, travel fast. Since the map is also very large, there are many enemies, and when in the open, you will at least face two at a time if you are going to chop them up. So, it is recommended that one bring an enchanted arrow or bow, and sneak attack all the enemies to at least thin out their numbers.
  • Once you have finished the quest, the worshippers will be killable, but now they will fight back. None of the worshippers have anything of value.


This section contains bugs related to Peryite (Quest). Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:

  1. Please reload an old save to confirm if the bug is still happening.
  2. If the bug is still occurring, please post the bug report with the appropriate system template  360  / XB1  ,  PS3  / PS4  ,  PC  / MAC  , depending on which platform(s) the bug has been encountered on.
  3. Be descriptive when listing the bug and fixes, but avoid having conversations in the description and/or using first-person-anecdotes: such discussions belong on the appropriate forum board.
  • Although not in truth an exploitable bug, the worshippers of Peryite are completely invincible until the quest is finished. They are the perfect punching bag in which one may hone skills like Destruction, Blade, Blunt, Hand-to-Hand, and any other skill that derives experience by impact. They cannot be killed, knocked unconscious (they already are), or eliminated. They do, however, move when hit, so be careful not to knock their bodies into an inaccessible pit.
  • Doing this too much can cause the game to lag, freeze, or crash due to the large number of unreported crimes you build up. To prevent this from happening, commit a crime in front of witnesses (any crime will work; stealing or using the Move key on a zero-value item is a relatively easy way to do this), then pay the fine; this will clear all of your unreported crimes.
