Tower of Mzark is an ancient Dwemer ruin located in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The iron gate on the surface is initially locked, however, it can be opened from the other side by pulling the lever next to it. The quests, "Elder Knowledge" and "Discerning the Transmundane" concurrently unfold here.

Accessing the towerEdit

To reach the other side, Blackreach must first be traversed. The only way to do this is to have started the quest, "Discerning the Transmundane". Septimus Signus' Attunement Sphere is required to activate a Dwarven mechanism opening a door to Blackreach. It is also possible to access it by forcing a plate against the wall and sprinting into it. Blackreach can be found by traveling through any of the major Dwemer ruins, such as Raldbthar and Alftand: the quest marker will always direct the player to Alftand.

InteractionsEdit

Elder KnowledgeEdit
