Return to V - Skyrim. Problem in "Discerning the transmundane" Quest. Then I might be able to tell you.
And please don't suggest another playthrough, I'd like to finish it on the one I've spent over ninety hours on He will give u a new quest and the lexicon that start the device. The lexicon is that cube there which you put in, and now you have to take it out not from the circular area in the bottom. I hope someone can help. I have the Elder Scroll. It sent me back to Blackreach. It does seem broken because I killed everything once, but when I went back again, stuff was alive again.
Not everything, but much of it. Is there another place in Blackreach I have to go to use the sphere? I used the cube and solved that puzzle I just need to know if the quest is broken or if I'm missing something down there. I spent three hours looking. I found all 30 crimson nirnroots which got me nothing either. Went to the lady's house and she was sad I'm puzzled and a little disappointed in my inability to move on. Help please?

The quickest route from Alftand to the Tower of Mzark would be to follow the road to the left immediately out of the Alftand Cathedral. Continue along the road until you come to your first junction T-shaped. Make a right and continue straight along that road and across a bridge until you see the Tower.
Inside the Tower of Mzark, climb to the very top of the tower to a podium with several buttons It's irritating me Community Forum Software by IP. Home Forums Gallery Blogs More.

When the Dragonborn finds Septimus Signus's Outpostthe mad scholar living there asks for help opening the strange Dwemer box inside. To do so, Septimus must use an Elder Scroll which requires a lexicon to be transcribed.
This transcription can only be done at a Dwemer Oculory located within the Tower of Mzark in Blackreachand the only way to reach the tower is go through Alftandthen Blackreach. This is easily the longest and most fraught part of the quest as both Alftand and Blackreach are extensive and certainly not lacking in Falmer and other dangerous foes.
Once inside the Tower of Mzark, the Lexicon must be placed in the receptacle, and the Oculory must be activated using the four buttons on the platform above the Oculory. Once done, the Oculory will reveal an Elder Scroll and the lexicon will have been transformed into a Runed Lexicon. Note: Be sure to take the Elder Scroll!
Do not leave it behind and it is a long way to go to retrieve it. Return to Septimus' Outpost and give him the lexicon. This will reveal that he requires Dwemer blood, but since the Dwemer are extinct, he will need the blood of the five other elven races to make a facsimile.
This part of the quest generally simply happens as part of combat during the general exploration of Skyrim.

A dialogue box is automatically presented when the Dragonborn loots a suitable corpse. Tip: Four of the five required blood types can be collected at Liar's Retreatand high elf blood can be found at the Falkreath Watchtower. Once you have all the blood samples, return to the Outpost and Septimus. Give him the blood samples which will allow him to finally open "the box". Inside is a pedestal with the Oghma Infinium. Septimus will rush over to the tome but as soon as he reads it, he will be reduced to a pile of ash.

We still have both quests active, so it seems we're okay, but what do you think about getting HM's boon at the end of DtT? I think we're good. HM showed up after we returned to Septimus and were leaving to go harvest blood. And awesome! Ok I did the quest already and I'm all done with that. But is there any way to re-open the cube, because I had to drop something on account of too much carry weight and I dropped the Nordic Pickaxe that you get from the Dragonborn DLC.
I was looking eerywhere for it frantically and remembered that the cube was the last place I remember being with it. So I went back and the door cube is locked again. It has been so long since I have done ay of these quests that I honsetly don't remember anymore. I will see if I can go back and figure that out for you though. If you figure it out on your own, please let me and other readers know by replying here again. This quest combination most often begins with Paarthurnax telling you that you need to go find out about the Elder Scroll from the people at the College of Winterhold.
Go talk to Urag and he will show you two books to read, one of which is nonsense. Be a Fan. Labels: alduinAlftanddragonrenddwemerelder scrollMzarkpaarthurnaxpuzzleruminationsseptimus signusSkyrimsolutiontransmundane.

Apart from Falmersyou will also have to eliminate a Frostbite Spiderbut you shouldn't have trouble with it. After getting down, head to the north-east gate. Don't rush it to the exit, as there's yet another trap here screen above. Disarm or avoid it and only afterwards head to the passage leading to the Alftand Cathedral.
Head east, navigating through another set of pressure plates. You will also have to eliminate a couple more Falmerswith at least one of them capable of using magic. After entering the bigger room, deal with the monsters and use the stairs leading onto the upper balcony. Interact with the lever screen abovetherefore opening the passage in the distance. Go down and use the new passage, heading south-west.
Check the contents of the chests, as there are precious treasures inside and afterwards go up the stairs.
Here you will have to battle a Dwarven Centurion screen aboveserving as a mini-boss. If you prefer direct combat, remember to regenerate your health and stamina throughout the battle. If you have a shield, be sure to use it a lot. If your character uses ranged attacks, you will be able to use a certain trick. Try to return to the lever on the upper balcony that you used recently. Make sure that your party member ran way as well and pull it, thanks to which the Centurion won't be able to get you screen above.
The boss still can attack your with range attacks, but they're far easier to avoid. Regardless of the chosen tactic, examine the Centurion's remains after the battle to find the Key to Alftand Lift. Also note that there's a second Centurion lying beside and you should examine him as well. After reaching another room, you will witness a fight between Sulla Trebatius and Umana screen above. As both characters are really powerful, you should just wait for one of them to die and enter afterwards.
Otherwise, both of them would unite against you, making it really hard to survive. Examine their bodies to find multiple items, precious especially for the warrior class.
Take a look around the area, finding more locked chests. Afterwards approach the previously ignored construction in the middle of the room. Stand by the dwarven mechanism's console screen above and press E to use the Attunement Sphere received from Septimus Signus.
Afterwards use the newly unlocked passage, going down the stairs. After reaching the lowest level, open the big gate to reach Blackreach.After that i sold the elder scroll to the orc at the college of winter-hold for 2k coins.
So here's my problem. A week later i was looking through my quests and found that i had not finished "discerning the transmundane. Put the LExicon in the pod, then move from left to right clicking each blue button until you can't press it anymore, then move to the next one and then the next one and then so on!
You can't anymore cuz u have to take once the elder scroll comes down so now it is stuck unless you have the pc version cuz you can change the stage of the quest for example: put the code "setstage" then the quest for example dark brotherhood is-DB then u put a number like 55 and that is the middle of the quest then change it to like and ur almost done.
