Silsailen Rescue is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls Online. The town of Silsailen is under attack by imposters disguised as First Auridon Marines. The townspeople suspect these men and women are part of a group called the Veiled Heritance.

Quick walkthroughEdit

  1. Talk to Ilemin
  2. Talk to Elenwen
  3. Talk to Teldur
  4. Save five villagers
  5. Report back to Elenwen


If one comes close enough to Silsailen, Ilemin will run up to the Vestige telling for help. She will then say that the Veiled Heritance came to the town dressed like First Auridon Marines and set fire to the buildings. She will then ask for the Vestige to speak to Elenwen, who organized the evacuation, to help in any way possible.

Elenwen can be found on the ourskirts of Silsailen on the top of the hill. Once spoken to, she will further explain on the Veiled Heritance's attack on the village and that she is Canonreeve Valano's daughter. She will then ask the Vestige to speak to Teldur, her father's assistant.

Teldur can be found at the center of the town kneeling beside the well. He will ask the Vestige to grab the bucket and douse the fires in order to save the villagers. The bucket can be found beside the well and can be picked up when activated. Once activated, the Vestige can defeat the Heritance soldiers and douse the fires in order to save the villagers.

Once all five villagers are saved, report back to Elenwen. She will be in a barn close to where she was previously standing and will thank the Vestige by giving them a gold reward of 93 GoldIcon and ask for them to speak to Hanilan.
