Skull of Corruption

The Skull of Corruption is a dream powered staff given by Vaermina as a reward for completing the Waking Nightmare quest in Dawnstar. To Dreamsteal, you simply cast it on a sleeping person and it will collect their dreams; however, it will still need to be charged with soul gems as well.

If equipped, guards will make comments about the staff: "What manner of staff is that? Such a horror..." and "What a foul and unnatural weapon you wield. Never have I seen its like."

  • The number of dreams left contained in the staff, as noted in-game, may drop from 0 to -1. This may cause the artifact to cease any damage output, and is remedied by casting the staff on the sleeping NPC. ?
