The Thalmor Embassy serves as a base of operations for the Third Aldmeri Dominion in Skyrim. After "Diplomatic Immunity," the main building is impossible to enter legitimately, with no enemies carrying the corresponding key.

QuestsEdit

Diplomatic ImmunityEdit

Hoping to discover secret information about the Dragon Crisis, Delphine sends the Dragonborn to the Thalmor Embassy. Disguised as a guest attending Elenwen's party, the Dragonborn creates a distraction and discovers several dossiers and letters about the Civil War in Skyrim, but nothing about the Dragon Crisis. The Dragonborn does, however, learn that a Dragon Loremaster of the Blades, Esbern, is in Skyrim and is wanted by the Thalmor. Attempting to escape, the Dragonborn discovers Etienne Rarnis, a member of the Thieves Guild who was being interrogated by the Thalmor in regards to Esbern's presence in Riften.

No Stone UnturnedEdit

As of Patch 1.4, the Unusual Gem has been moved from Elenwen's Solar to Reeking Cave, next to the Conjurer's corpse.

Discerning the TransmundaneEdit

The barracks in the Thalmor Embassy can still be accessed after Diplomatic Immunity and is a great source of Altmer blood, which is needed for activating the Dwemer mechanism at Septimus Signus's Outpost.

Gaining Access After "Diplomatic Immunity" Edit

There are several ways to enter the embassy (including locked areas) after the completion of Diplomatic Immunity. Keep in mind that these tricks require several tries to succeed. Tested and work on PS3.

  • Use wooden plate on the wall to the left side of the main entrance (behind the lamppost). Keep running into the plate to bypass the wall into Elenwen's Solar exterior. Difficulty: Easy.
  • Enter the embassy via backdoor. There's a locked door at the center of the first floor that leads directly into the party hall. Use another wooden plate on the door. Again keep running into it until you can see the other side of the door, then immediately use Whirlwind Sprint to enter the hall. Razelan and Brelas (occasionally Elenwen and Illdi) can be found here. Difficulty: Easy to Hard.
  • Entering the kitchen area from the party hall requires two plates (or one from the center hall). Use the same trick as above with Whirlwind Wind on the first door, and another one at the hallway into the kitchen. Tsavanni will have generic conversations with the Dragonborn instead of warning them about it's against the rules to be in the kitchen. Difficulty: Easy to Hard.
