I have tested both methods listed. The first method would not work for me, but the second (kill him quickly after releasing him) worked fine. If enough others have the same results, we can remove the first method from the wiki. BigBlackWolf (talk) 19:26, November 26, 2011 (UTC)
Imperial Sword of (Random Enchant) is in it, not just "of Ice"
Man, that was hellishly difficult to accomplish. He must be killed late enough that his corpse teleports out, but early enough that he doesn't escape alive. And if you want to loot the body too, you must be even quicker. Attacking him when he says the word see of "See you on the other side, mortal" worked for me (with weapons powerful enough to kill him fast). Any sooner than that and his body stayed behind, and the treasure didn't appear. PC users who've already killed him can get a do-over by using prid B8D3D, resurrect then moveto player. — Lovable Sociopath (talk) 11:30, December 10, 2011 (UTC)
At the time I found this (lv 8) there was no Imperial Sword of any kind around the treasure. Level dependent maybe?
All this talk about killing Velehk Sain to get his Daedric Heart, it does not come with any consideration as to the consequences of killing him. Even if you kill him at "See you on the other side.", you still can't have the treasure. The treasure will never appear if the Dremora (lord?) is dead. If you don't want treasure, then go right ahead. Otherwise, disregard all this complication just to retrieve a Daedra Heart. 22.214.171.124 21:41, February 4, 2012 (UTC)
More than One Statue of Talos Edit
When I was doing this I found it a wee bit difficult when looking for the treasure as I had ran into 3 different Statues of Talos. If you find yourself at a Talos Statue with a cage and dead Skeevers, You should be just North of Ysgramor's Tomb, Head to the smaller island just South of it and you'll be at the correct place. As for the other Talos statue, your very far to the west from the Treasure, keep moving east till you see a ship on your radar (Pilgrim's Trench), once you reach the ship its slightly South-East.
Hope this helps out, just had a few troubles and I can see a couple people having the same issue in the future.
