Detailed Walkthrough

A Hagraven in Need

Upon entering Blind Cliff Bastion you will see the hagraven Melka in a cage. Upon approaching her, she will ask you to free her and help her reclaim her tower from another hagraven, Petra. To release Melka, pull the chain near the cage. After leaving the cage she will then lead you through her tower. The first room displays a central stone slab adorned with three handles; Melka will tell you that the middle one is the correct one to use. Pull the handle and go through the gate it opens. Follow the short path into a room inhabited by a Forsworn. There will then be a gate with a tunnel full of swinging blades. Melka will mention a lever that will stop the blades: she will then pull a handle on the floor that lowers a section of a wall, revealing another lever to do just that.

Reclaiming the Tower

Move through the tunnel and go up the stairs. After the stairs you will pass a section of wall that moves away when the nearby handle is pulled. Through the newly cleared section of wall are some ingots and a chest. The next room has an alchemy lab, and is referred to by Melka as her "parlor". Follow the path past the quicksilver ore. The next room contains Petra and two Forsworn. Killing them and Petra will result in Melka rewarding you with the unique staff, Eye of Melka. If Melka died anywhere along the way you can simply loot the staff from her corpse.


  • You can also just kill Melka for the staff, but you will still have the objective to kill Petra and you will have lost your guide.


  • If you kill Petra before freeing Melka, the quest does not complete and remains in your list of quests.
  • Completing this quest counts towards the Sideways achievement, even though it is not a Side Quest, i.e., it does not have a separate entry in your quest log
    Mod Notes: Quest stage 100 of the quest calls AchievementsQuest.IncSideQuests(), even though the quest Type is "Miscellaneous" instead of "Side Quests"
