The Xylo River Basin is the southern region of Malabal Tor. It contains the towns of Vulkwasten, Tanglehaven and Bloodtoil Valley. The southern region is mostly dominated by various ruins, surrounding the Xylo River Basin Dolmen on the river north of the Grahtwood gate. It is bordered by the Broken Coast on the west and Silvenar Vale on the east.

You will need to complete the quests in order from 1 – 2; the quest givers are marked on the maps below. Sometimes the skill point is awarded before all of the quests in the zone are finished, but the remaining quests need to be completed because they are prerequisites for the next questing zone. There are no skill points in the Xylo River Basin questing zone, however they need to be completed so you can progress to the Silvenar Vale questing zone.

– Detailed Walkthrough –

Talk to the Silvenar east of the Abamath Wayshrine. Wood Orcs, the Drublog, from Jathsogur captured him and his traveling companions. He asks you to rescue his advisors first since they can tell you more about the attack and help you free him. Some kind of powerful magic ensnares him. When you agree to help him he tells you their names: Raen and Sariel.

They are to the north in the northern longhouse. Talk to both of them. Sariel says the Drublog bound the Silvenar with a ritual book and giant crystals.

The Ritual of Unbinding is northeast of the longhouse, guarded by Orulu, an ogrim. Talk to Sariel about the book. She thinks you could reverse the ritual and give the Silvenar back his energy. You need to find the runestone, the conduit for the ritual. She thinks the runestone is at the other Daedric shrine.

The Runestone of Malacath is south of the Daedric altar where you found the ritual book. Another ogrim, Neechar, guards the runestone. Talk to Raen about it. He suggests you examine them in the southern longhouse, where you will be safe.

“I understand what needs to be done. Read the book. One of us must die to save the Silvenar.”

One of us must die? Why?

“Daedric rituals often come at such a cost. Obviously, I should be sacrificed. I’m the weakest of us.” —Sariel

“It’s a hard choice, but a simple one. It’s my duty to die protecting the Silvenar. I failed once, so badly I can’t fight anymore. The Silvenar needs advisors like Sariel.” —Raen

Use the runestone on the ambassador you want to sacrifice, then talk to the other. You need to disrupt the binding stones in the towers surrounding the main building. Use the runestone, now a rune key, on the stones to sever their connection to the ritual. The survivor offers their totem spirit to help you. Sariel’s spirit animal is a lion that heals you. Raen’s is a bear.

You need to disrupt four stones. They are Essence, Magicka, Spirit and Memory.

After destroying the stones, enter the Silvenar’s prison inside the fortress on the hill. Enter the Chieftain’s Quarters and defeat Drauginas, the Silvenar’s captor.

Follow the projection of the Silvenar down the ramp to the Silvenar. Talk to him. The binding stones severed his link to the Bosmer. He needs you to defend him while he regains his energy. Let him know when you are ready, and he surrounds himself in a blue bubble of magic while you defeat more Wood Orcs. Defeat four waves of enemies, then talk to the Silvenar.

The Silvenar opens a portal. Follow him through the portal. He will hurry to Silvenar as soon as his magicka returns.

Continue to the next Malabal Tor skill point quest, Buyer Beware.
