Scroll Scouting is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls V: Dawnguard.

WalkthroughEdit

After the completion of the quest "Prophet", the Dragonborn will be told by Dexion Evicus that all three Elder Scrolls must be obtained, in order for him to read the whole prophecy.

If the Dragonborn has already obtained an Elder Scroll, during the Main Quest, then the Elder Scroll will already be in their inventory. If it was sold to Urag gro-Shub at the College of Winterhold, it must be bought back. He'll sell it back for 4,000 GoldIcon, unless the Dragonborn is the Arch-Mage, in which case he can be persuaded to sell it for half of that. However, if the Dragonborn is not yet the Arch-Mage, Urag can still be persuaded to sell it back for 3,000 GoldIcon.

If the Dragonborn has not obtained the Elder Scroll from the Tower of Mzark, the quest will play out nearly identically to that of "Elder Knowledge".

TriviaEdit

  • This quest can also be used to obtain the Oghma Infinium early and skip "Elder Knowledge".
  • If the player is not a member of the College and does not wish to start the quest line, they can still enter the grounds and speak to Urag by glitching through the gates using a plate.
  • The player may also go to Septimus Signus' Outpost and skip the College entirely.
