Journey to Augury Rock, in order to speak with Great Ritual Priest Zahmut on how to achieve Ascension.

Quest information[edit]




Travel to Augury Rock, or go on foot from The Amnoon Oasis. In case of the latter, fight or run up to the teleporter in the southeast. The teleporter is activated by standing in the circle and turning back to view the switches. These will light up in a sequence and the player must touch them in the same order. Use the activate teleporter to cross the canyon and move on. From there, follow the monoliths up to Augury Rock.


Initial dialogue[edit]

Ghostly Hero

So many have come to this desert wishing to unlock its secret, and all have perished. Were they all unworthy, or just unable to show their worthiness in the way the gods require? I suppose it amounts to the same thing, at the end of the day. Perhaps this time it will be different.

Speak to Great Ritual Priest Zahmut. He can tell you of the tests you must endure. You'll find him at Augury Rock to the east.

Yes Accept: "I'm on my way."
No Decline: "Perhaps another time."
Ask Ask: "Great Ritual Priest Zahmut awaits you to the east. Speak with him."

Reward dialogue[edit]

Great Ritual Priest Zahmut

I am he. You wish to Ascend, do you? Many have come before you, and all have failed. May the gods grant you the wisdom to light your way. Three tests await you in the desert. Seek and you shall find.
