Velehk Sain's Treasure is an unmarked location found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


Velehk Sain is a Dremora bound to a Daedric Relic in The Midden beneath the College of Winterhold, encountered during the quest "Forgotten Names". If the decision is made to release him, he will provide a map to his treasure. The treasure will not appear until he has been encountered, nor will it appear if he is killed instead of freed.


The map is very misleading. Once at water level, head directly west from the College of Winterhold to a rather flat peninsula that appears to have a path going up it. Walking to either side all the way around the peninsula will reveal a large statue of Talos, and below that on the ground should be the treasure. The peninsula is just southwest of Ysgramor's Tomb.

Another way to find the treasure is to stand by the beached rowboat at Pilgrim's Trench and look southeast.

    • Watch a youtube vid on how to get it. Plus the treasure isn't all that good, just some gold bars and a dibella statue.
    • head to the midden i the college of winterhold, find the gauntlet, and on a table across from it there should be a notebook with some helpful hints

    • Does it respawn?
    • Probably not. Loot everything and go on your own business for a few ingame days and see if it respawns.
