Main article: Quests (Tribunal)

The Missing Hand is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls III: Tribunal. It forms part of the main quest line fo The Elder Scrolls III: Tribunal. Having aided the Lady Almalexia in her Show of Power, the Nerevarine is asked to remove one of her former hands, Salas Valor.

ObjectivesEdit

WalkthroughEdit

With Almalexia satisfied that her people believe in her power once more, the demi-God requests that her former Hand, Salas Valor be dealt with. In his defence, Almalexia admits that he may have gone mad due to her presence, but that his slander against her since leaving her service means he must be dealt with by the Nerevarine by any means necessary.

The Demi-God's HandEdit

Speaking with Fedris Hler reveals that a former, and frustrated, Hand of Almalexia can be found in the Godsreach area of Mournhold. This Hand, identified by the magical aura surronding his High Ordinator armor, is the aforementioned Valor, whom can be engaged in a brief dialogue. Once he has spoken, Valor will attack the Nerevarine, using a variety of spells, healing potions, and his enchanted Ebony Scimitar. Once Valor has been defeated and killed, the Nerevarine may return to Almalexia.

A Godly BlessingEdit

Upon returning to Almalexia, the Nerevarine's actions are met with a show of pity, although the demi-God remains grateful. She then goes on to offer the Nerevarine one of three blessings: Her Ironskin (Fortify Armor), Her Guard Against Terror (Resist Paralysis), or Her Reflected Glory (Fortify Health). Alternatively, if Valor was killed before the quest began, Almalexia will offer Her Tamed Lightning (Lightning Shield), instead of Her Guard Against Terror. The Nerevarine then has the option of accepting one of the blessings, or rejecting all of them.

Having received or declined Almalexia's blessing, the demi-God will now offer the Nerevarine their next task to complete, the resurrection of the Blade of Nerevar.

1Almalexia has sent me to deal with Salas Valor, one of Her elite guards, the Hands, who has gone mad, and who now presents a threat to Almalexia. She says She pities him, and knows that he is not responsible for his actions, but She says he is very dangerous, and I may not be able to spare his life.
  • Quest accepted
10I went to speak with Salas Valor, but it is almost as though he had been waiting for me. He seemed to know that Almalexia had sent me, and that she wanted one or both of us dead. He told me to make my peace with the gods, then attacked me.
90Salas Valor is dead. Any threat he represented to the peace of Mournhold is now eliminated. I should report to Almalexia.
100I reported to Almalexia that Salas Valor is dead, and that any threat he represented to the peace of Mournhold is now eliminated. She was pleased, and rewarded me with a special divine blessing.

110I reported to Almalexia that Salas Valor is dead, and that any threat he represented to the peace of Mournhold is now eliminated. She was pleased, and offered to reward me with a special divine blessing. I declined her blessing, however, and I think she was less pleased by that.

1I encountered a Dunmer named Salas Valor dressed in splendid armor. He seemed very angry -- perhaps a little mad -- and more than a little dangerous.
10I encountered a Dunmer named Salas Valor dressed in splendid armor. He seemed very angry -- perhaps a little mad -- and more than a little dangerous. I asked him about his armor, and he said it is the armor of Almalexia's Hands, Her most loyal and trusted guards and followers. He says he was one of Her Hands, but no more.
90I have killed Salas Valor.

TriviaEdit

  • Valor must be provoked into attacking by talking to him, otherwise the other High Ordinators in Godsreach will come to his aid.
  • Her Ironskin Fortifies all Armor skills (ie Unarmored, Light, Medium and Heavy) by five points.
    • It is also implemented in the game as an ability, meaning each skill can be raised over the 100 limit.
  • Almalexia's disposition will drop by 30 points if her blessings are rejected.
