Rebuilding the Blades is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. This will not appear by this name in the journal. Instead, there will be a miscellaneous quest to "Bring a follower to Delphine."

BackgroundEdit

Delphine has requested the Dragonborn to bring her three followers who will then take an oath and be inducted into the Blades.

WalkthroughEdit

The Dragonborn needs to speak to a follower and ask if they wish to become a Blade. Followers who can be asked to join the Blades are listed in the table below.

Once a follower becomes a Blade, they will move to Sky Haven Temple and are no longer found at their original location when dismissed. Once three followers become Blades, the "Dragon Hunting" quest becomes available which involves slaying a dragon at a random dragon lair with the new recruits. Should a recruit die, they cannot be replaced by inducting another follower.
