  • Another silver ore vein – Just west of that chest, in a small alcove.
  • Moonstone ore vein – Due south of the cave entrance, follow the path to the blocked gate to Cyrodiil. The vein is right by the gate.

BugsEdit

This section contains bugs related to Southfringe Sanctum. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:

  1. Confirm all bugs with other editors on the talk page before adding them below.
  2. Always try reloading an old save first, before asking for assistance.
  3. Do not discuss possible bug fixes or origins. Leave those and all other first-person-anecdotes on the talk page, not the article.
  4. Always add  360  ,  PS3  , and  PC   to clarify which system the bug appears on.
  •  PC   PS3   Lydia and Illia can get stuck on a small landing between two trees just below the cage with a chicken in it. She doesn't seem able to take the small step down to the next level. And that blocks the completion of the The Savior of Selveni Nethri.
    • Solution: Move around her for a bit on the lower section, she will figure it out.
  •  PC   360   PS3  Selveni Nethri can get stuck right before the exit/entrance to the cave (she needs to leave the cave to complete the quest). If this happens help her out by using the Unrelenting Force shout to push her outside. If the Dragonborn lacks the shout, a weak ranged destruction spell such as Flames or Frostbite may be used to turn her hostile. When she attacks, lead her around the cave's circuit and back out the exit. (This may take several tries.)
  •  PS3   Once given the quest and hitting the "show me this location" function the map may indicate an area far removed from the actual location of Southfringe Sanctum.
  •  PS3   The Dragonborn can jump up and out from the cave in the last "room" by jumping between the rocks.
  •  PC   PS3   To the left of Bashnag's chest there is an opening in the rocks. If you can get through there (I used Sneak, but couldn't repeat) you end up "behind" the graphics (under the mountains). You can wander around on a perfectly flat plain (I don't suggest going off the edge) or re-enter the game by walking back into the mountain.
