The Statue to Meridia is a daedric shrine dedicated to Meridia in Skyrim. It is located on Mount Kilkreath, due west of Solitude. Directly northeast of the shrine is a virtually unguarded Dragon Word Wall containing a word for Elemental Fury.

QuestsEdit

The quest The Break of Dawn is started by either finding Meridia's Beacon, which appears in random chests after level 12, or by approaching the shrine.

If the Dragonborn finds the beacon, Meridia will ask them to bring it to her shrine. If the Dragonborn approaches the shrine before finding the beacon, she will ask for it to be retrieved from a radiant location. Upon their return, she then tells them to cleanse her temple, located below her statue from a Necromancer. In the temple, the Dragonborn will have to guide a beam of light to open the doors. The beams will drain magicka from anything they hit. At the end, there are four corrupted shades and the Necromancer named Malkoran who is fought in his human form, then again as Malkoran's Shade. Once he is dead, Meridia will tell the Dragonborn to take Dawnbreaker. Once they have taken it, they will be asked to spread her gospel with the sword. The Dragonborn can agree or disagree, either way the sword is rewarded.

TriviaEdit

  • Once Dawnbreaker is pulled from the pedestal the Dragonborn is transported from the ruins and any coin left behind will be lost.
  • Once all quests are completed for Meridia, the Dragonborn can "activate" the gem at the statue yet nothing occurs.
  • Meridia's 'Clensing Light' (the beams of light that Meridia uses to open the doors inside the temple) is a very efficient way to power-level any magic skill, all the Dragonborn is required to do is activate the Atronach Star Sign to gain it's Magika Absorption perk and stand in the path of the light beams. The beams cause magic damage on the Dragonborn when they stand in it, thus magika is absorbed from it. The effect almost instantly regenerates full magika.

BugsEdit

This section contains bugs related to Statue to Meridia. 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   360   PS3   The Dragon Shout, 'Battle, Elemental Fury', may never load and the shout not learned. The wall will still glow and the sound effects can be heard but the word cannot be obtained. A solution is to save a few yards from the wall, return to the Skyrim Title Screen and then load the save game to cause the world to reload the wall. On the PC, the console can be used to get the shout.
  •  PC   360   PS3  Sometimes visiting the shrine will not start the quest no matter what is done to the shrine.
  •  360   Also when transported upwards the Dragonborn may get stuck and be unable to move. Reloading should fix this.
  •  PC   When coming back down the Dragonborn might fall to their death, due to an unsafe landing.
    • Using the tgm command prevents this.
    • Moving away from Meridia after she finishes speaking may also work if the move is to a lower elevation.

    • I'm afraid there is no way that I know of. Sorry.
    • Don't just reload a save go back to home and reload the game, then reload your save. This worked for me on 360.
  • My companion is trapped in the lowest section of meridias temple!
