Velehk Sain's Treasure

Velehk Sain is a dremora found in The Midden, most likely encountered during the quest Good Intentions. He is bound to the Daedric Relic.


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.

If the decision is made to kill him, Velehk Sains's corpse can be looted to yield two scimitars, a daedra heart, and vestments from Hammerfell.

A method for obtaining both the map and his personal loot is to release him, then cancel the conversation while he is still talking and quickly attack and kill him before he's finished speaking. A paralysis weapon works well to immobilize him or use the Dragon Shout Slow Time. The map will have been transferred during the dialogue, and the body is still lootable (this method does not always work however, as sometimes the treasure will not appear even with the map in possession).

Location of the TreasureEdit

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 south-east.

Behind the statue of Talos, on the ground by a lantern, is the skill book The Importance of Where.

  1. Confirm all bugs with other editors on the talk page before adding them below.
  2. Always try reloading an old save first, before asking for assistance.
  3. Do not discuss possible bug fixes or origins. Leave those and all other first-person-anecdotes on the talk page, not the article.
  4. Always add  360  ,  PS3  , or  PC   to clarify which system the bug appears on.
  •  PS3   A Snowy Sabre Cat might spawn nearby, run up and tackle all the booty, making all of it, except the chest, fall through the ground.
  •  PS3   If you kill Velehk Sain during his dialogue the treasure may not appear, even if you have the map.
  •  360   If the player's character dies after freeing Velehk Sain and before retrieving the treasure, the quest to get the treasure will leave.
  •  PC   360   PS3  Sometimes even when you have the map and you have released Velehk Sain the treasure won't appear.
  •  PS3   It is possible to acquire both Velehk Sain's Treasure and all of his available item's. By using The Staff of Paralysis (or spell possibly) and the Wabbajack to immobilize him and keep him from reentering oblivion. As soon as the map is given, paralyze then wabbajack then paralyze again.


Velehk Sain can be dead thralled.
