ESO New Quest, Of Knives and Long Shadows: Order of the Eye Dispatch (Clockwork City)
Warning the Scryers
At the Shornhelm Mages Guild, you come across Eloic Montieu. If you have completed the Mages Guild questline, he will recognize you and offer his assistance. If not, he will be somewhat wary. Either way, once you mention that his life is in danger, he informs you that Adeber has stepped outside for some quiet. You can find him behind Merethrins House, slumped against a barrel, already dead. Collect his journal to learn more about his scrying techniques. At this point, you have the opportunity to return to Eloic Montieu to deliver the sad news. Once that is done, you can move on.
In Marbruk, Wenridil can be found on the patio behind the Queens Residence. She moves off as you approach, accusing you of leering at her. At the same time, her shadow comes to life and starts attacking, but she manages to escape. You will need to defeat the shadow and catch up with her. Inside the Marbruk Mages Guild, Wenridil can be found hiding behind a plant pot and will cower when spoken to. She thinks that the shadow may have ripped off part of her animus, but nonetheless is grateful for your help. She directs you to another planter, where you can find her logbook and pocket it.
Neelo is tucked between some big rocks down by the river just to the east of Stormhold Wayshrine. He threatens you to stay away, saying he will not die like the others and that if you approach his wards will tear you apart. You can either Intimidate him into lowering his wards, or locate his sister Xarei, who may be able to convince him. She can be found by the market stalls in the center of the city and upon telling her the situation, you can lead her to Neelo to convince him. When you approach, she will speak with him briefly.
Once Neelo has been convinced one way or another to lower his wards, he will direct you to his journal, located at the root of a nearby tree, so that you may take them “far, far away”. If you fetched his sister, he also apologizes for his paranoia.
