The Dream BridgesEdit
After conquering Shalidor's Labyrinthian, the Champion is encouraged to sleep at an inn and receive the next dream bridge from Ria Silmane, the closest location to the Labyrinthian is Stonehills. When sleeping, Ria will explain her divination of the location of the third piece of the Staff of Chaos:
The Champion should find somewhere less-safer to sleep than an inn, for Tharn also awaits in a dream bridge. Like before, if the Champion does not voluntarily sleep, Tharn will force the Champion to sleep for an hour to call a dream bridge:
When Tharn's minion has been defeated, the Champion should remember Ria's message, searching for the Elven Elden Grove. In Tamriel, there are only three Elven provinces: Morrowind, home of the Dark Elves, Valenwood, home to the Wood Elves, and the Summerset Isles, home to the High Elves. The Champion should travel to one of these provinces and ask around for the Elden Grove, though, there is a simpler method: simple analysis of each province's populated locations.
Doing so will reveal a strangely named city-state in the center of Valenwood: "Eldenroot," about 2,200 Km from Stonehills in Skyrim. Traveling there, the Champion should ask about the Elden Grove.
Doing so will reveal that the. The Champion should make their way to the palace at the north-eastern end of the city to have audience with Queen Ulandra of Eldenroot.
Upon seeking audience with Queen Ulandra, she will speak to the Champion about Selene, a high priestess to the "Spider God," and her threats to destroy Eldenroot:
The Champion should accept her request, to which she'll be delighted:
Selene's Web is southeast of Elden Wood, it is a medium-sized dungeon with two levels. The First Level has a locked door which leads to the Second Level. The key remains on an island in the center of the dungeon. However, it is possible to use the spell Passwall to break the walls and enter the door without the key.
The Second Level is more complex; it is divided into four parts. The Heart of Selene is on the central area, which is locked. The key is on the southeast area, surrounded by walls and guarded by Wraiths and Barbarians. It is easier to jump the walls using the mouse to make a better approach. Beware of the Wraiths' fire attacks as they mean almost instantaneous death, even for someone in Dwarven Armor, it is advised that the Champion bring some Fire Resistance Potions.
After obtaining the Key, open the door on the central area and take the Heart of Selene. The item must be delivered to Queen Ulandra in Eldenroot. She will then proceed to inscribe Elden Grove on the Champion's map.
Give the Heart of Selene to Queen Ulandra and she will fulfil her part of the exchange and inscribe the location of Elden Grove on the map. Before going to Eldenroot, it is advisable to take potions of fire resistance or have the spell Resist Fire, as Wraiths will be encountered, and their fire attacks are devastating.
