Usually only present in the memories as an observer, sometimes "The Dreamstrider" faces peril. Once the draught wears off, the drinker appears in the location where the memory ended. Observers of the drinker notice that they disappear from plain view and materialize in other locations, sometimes dead.
The Dragonborn locates the mixture in Nightcaller Temple and uses it to traverse the memories of Brother Casimir. This allows them to dispel a magical barrier that isolates the Skull of Corruption for the rest of the temple. The draught is found in the Laboratory of the Temple, resting on a shelf.
- If it is attempted to be used outside Nightcaller Temple, the Torpor will reappear in the Dragonborn's inventory and a message will pop up saying the item cannot be used in the current location.
- Three ingredients for Vaermina's Torpor can be found in Skyrim's files, but they were cut from the game.
