College of Winterhold Misc Quests

Illusion Ritual Spell

How to trigger quest: To even get this quest to show up, you must be a MASTER OF ILLUSION MAGIC . Once you have attained level 100 in Conjuration go find Drevis Neloren in the College of Winterhold. Ask him "what else" can be learned about Illusion magic and go through the dialog to get this quest.

Note: HOW do you get to level 100 in Illusion as fast as possible? Well, this is one of the EASIEST skills to level. Simply buy the spell " Muffle " from a mage and use it whenever you can! It’s a pretty cheap spell, can be used time and time again, and even makes your movements quiet!

It can easily level you up once per cast at low levels, but at higher levels and as you approach 90 it can take longer and longer (grind it out!). OR you can just do it in your spare time while you travel from place to place…

Once you have the quest, Drevis will essentially tell you that to learn more powerful spells, you must find hidden texts around the college. To find these texts, he will give you a spell known as the " Vision of the Tenth Eye " (a Novice spell that sounds AWESOME) to use on yourself. When used, it will make the hidden texts visible! There are FOUR texts to find, and here are where they are:

  • **Text 1:** Head to the SECOND FLOOR of the Hall of Countenance and search the rooms up here. In a storage room with some boxes and barrels you will find it on top of the barrels.
  • **Text 2:** Head up to the SECOND FLOOR of the Hall of Attainment. You should see a big bench to your left and the text will be underneath it.
  • **Text 3:** Head to the Arcanaeum (where you would FIGURE books would be kept) and once inside, stick to the left-hand wall. There is a table against the stone wall divider on the right and the book will be on top of that table.
  • **Text 4:** Now THIS one is well hidden. Head down into the Midden and go to where the Atronach Forge is. By the forge will be a table, and this book will be on it.

Once you have all four books, return to Drevis and he will translate the text for you as well as give you the "first text" of the MASTER ILLUSION spells: HYSTERIA . Note that he also now sells THREE MORE Master Illusion spells: C all to Arms, Harmony , and Mayhem . You will now be done with this quest. Congrats.
