Main article: Quests (Knights of the Nine)

Pilgrimage is quest available in The Elder Scrolls IV: Knights of the Nine. Proceeded by "The Shrine of the Crusader", the quest opens in Anvil, with a doomsayer spouting about attacks on the Chapel of Dibella.

OverviewEdit

The Hero must prove their renown, then proceed on a Pilgrimage across Cyrodiil, praying at the various wayshrines of the Nine Divines, with only a map to guide them. It is the first quest in the expansion pack and can be initiated by asking anyone about rumors.

BackgroundEdit

In the beginning of the Knights of the Nine expansion, the Hero becomes privy to rumors of a massacre at the Chapel of Dibella in Anvil; a Prophet makes his appearance at the site of the crime preaching that Umaril the Unfeathered had returned, and a new Hero is being sought out by the holy decree of the Nine Divines.

WalkthroughEdit

Speak to the Prophet and he will tell the Hero of the return of an old and evil king that seeks to desecrate the chapels and worship sites of the Nine Divines. According to him, the Hero would be a worthy knight for such a task, should they be able to recover the Relics of the Crusader. These artifacts belonged to a legendary knight known as Pelinal Whitestrake.

In the conversation, the Prophet will attempt to gauge the knighthood of the Hero. He will ask if they are a 'worthy knight.'

The Hero is permitted to answer yes if they have become one or more of:

Wayshrines Map

The map outlines each wayshrine on the Pilgrimage.

While the Hero will receive praise by saying yes to any of the above, only a no answer will start the questline.

WayshrinesEdit

After starting the quest, they are given a map and is tasked with making a pilgrimage to the Wayshrines of each divine.

As the Hero travels to fulfill their task, they will encounter Sir Roderic and his Squire Lathon*, who also seek the artifacts. They greet the Hero, expressing their desire to cross paths at a later date.

Pelinal WhitestrakeEdit

Pilgrimage Pelinale Whitestrake

The Spirit of Pelinal Whitestrake

Once the pilgrimage is complete, the Hero will have a vision and finds themselves far above Cyrodiil in the presence of Pelinal Whitestrake's spirit itself.

The spirit informs them of the location of the first relic, the Helm and is tasked with its recovery.

Journal entriesEdit

Journal Entry
  • Update: After hearing rumors or talking to a priest:

I've heard rumors of an attack on the Chapel of Dibella in Anvil. No one seems to know what happened, but all the priests and priestesses were killed and the altars desecrated. It might be worth going to Anvil to see for myself.

  • Update: Upon speaking with the Prophet:

I've spoken to the Prophet outside Anvil Chapel. He claims that an ancient Ayleid sorcerer-king has returned from beyond the grave to destroy the church, and that only a true knight wearing the legendary Crusader's Relics can possibly defeat him. I should speak to him further to find out how to find these lost Relics.

  • Update: After talking more to the Prophet:

I've spoken to a mysterious Prophet, who told me that in order to seek the Relics of the Crusader, I must first do a pilgrimage to the Wayshrines of the Divines. He gave me a map of the Pilgrim's Way to help me locate the shrines. Once I have visited a wayshrine for each of the Nine Divines, I may receive a vision if I am judged a worthy knight.

TriviaEdit

  • It is possible to not meet Sir Roderic and Lathon. If the Hero opts to brave the terrain compared to the roads they will not encounter them; however, in other parts of the quest chain Lathon will act as if he had met the hero, so the meeting is not a critical requirement for the solidity of the experience.
  • Completing this quest allows the Hero to be recognized by the followers of the Nine Divines, allowing access to all of the chapels throughout Cyrodiil.
  • Be advised that the Wayshrine of Zenithar is not in the location on the Wayshrine Map. It is actually closer to Kvatch and the Wayshrine of Arkay.
