Unseen Visions is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls V: Dawnguard.

BackgroundEdit

After discovering that Dexion has become blind, I've had to secure alternate means to decipher the Elder Scrolls and locate Auriel's Bow. It's been suggested that I might be able to read the Elder Scrolls myself if I use an ancient technique performed by the original Moth Priests. I'm now on my way to a place known as the Ancestor Glade to discover the origin of the mysterious ritual.

WalkthroughEdit

After retrieving the other two Elder Scrolls, return to Dexion. Tell him both Elder Scrolls have been retrieved and he will go on to tell you that he can no longer read them as he has gone blind from reading the first due to a lack of preparation. He will then explain the Ritual of the Ancestor Moth that can be performed at Ancestor Glade, southeast of Falkreath.

Ancestor GladeEdit

Ancestor Glade

Head to Ancestor Glade, located east of Angi's Camp. Enter the cave and proceed deeper past the foliage and over the felled tree trunk. The tunnel will open into an enormous picturesque cavern. Walk down to the bottom of the cavern by the stone pillars and take the Draw Knife from center of the large rock. Use the Draw Knife to collect some bark from one of the surrounding Canticle Trees.

Next, attract 7 Ancestor Moth swarms, they can be obtained by simply walking around the cave and running into each swarm.

Reading the Elder ScrollsEdit

Once all 7 have been attracted, stand in the column of light and read the Elder Scroll (Blood). Vision will be engulfed by a blinding light as the other scrolls are read and a map will begin to form with each reading that depicts a location somewhere between Markarth and Solitude.

After reading the scroll, speak to Serana and tell her the visions about the cave far on the western edge of Skyrim. This appears to be the location of Auriel's Bow. This completes the quest and immediately starts the next, "Touching the Sky".

Upon exiting the conversation, several Vampires or Dawnguard (depending on who has been sided with) will have followed the Dragonborn to the cave and will attack. Once they have been defeated exit out of the cave and head to Darkfall Cave.

JournalEdit

Journal Entry
After discovering that Dexion has become blind, I've had to secure alternate means to decipher the Elder Scrolls and locate Auriel's Bow.

I'm now on my way to a place known as the Ancestor Glade to discover the origin of the mysterious ritual.
  • Objective: Find a Moth Priest's knife
  • Objective: Gather bark from a Canticle Tree
  • Objective: Attract Ancestor Moth Swarms (0/7)
I've used the unusual knife to collect the bark from the Canticle Trees dotting the Ancestor Glade, which has in turn drawn Ancestor Moths to me. I've felt a surge of energy run through my body and I feel drawn towards the large column of light in the center of the Glade.
  • Objective: Enter the column of light and read the Elder Scroll (Blood)
I'm now standing in a column of light which appears to stretch into the sky at the center of the Ancestor Glade. According to Dexion, I've completed the Ritual of the Ancestor Moth and can now read the Elder Scrolls. I'll need to begin with the Elder Scroll I obtained from the Soul Cairn in order to decipher the location of Auriel's Bow.
  • Objective: Speak to Serana

Dawnguard: After entering the column of light in the Ancestor Glade, I was able to read the Elder Scrolls. I had an incredible vision that pinpointed a cave entrance far away on the western edge of Skyrim. This appears to be the location of Auriel's Bow. If I'm to stop Harkon from completing the Tyranny of the Sun, I should hasten there immediately.

  • Quest complete

Vampire: After entering the column of light in the Ancestor Glade, I was able to read the Elder Scrolls. I had an incredible vision that pinpointed a cave entrance far away on the western edge of Skyrim. This appears to be the location of Auriel's Bow. If I'm to complete the Tyranny of the Sun before Harkon, I should hasten there immediately.

TriviaEdit

  • Despite the fact that this is the ritual used to read the Elder Scrolls, reading the Elder Scroll (Dragon) or the Elder Scroll (Sun), even with Canticle Bark in one's inventory and a full swarm of Ancestor Moths, the player will only experience a "default" reading and temporary blindness.
  • With the Alchemy perk Green Thumb, the Dragonborn will be able to harvest two pieces of Canticle Bark. One has a value and weight of 0, the other has a weight of 0 and value of 350. One can be used as a decorative or collectors item, the other sold for a healthy price.
