How To Retrieve The Dawnguard Lost Relics [Skyrim]

The Lost Relic quest(s) is part of the Skyrim Dawnguard DLC. The quest involves retrieving ancient Dawnguard artifacts scattered in different locations.

Notes: The locations are random and your quest destination may differ from the directions provided here. Additionally, you cannot complete all Lost Relic assignments unless you have first finished Gunmar side quests and Sorine’s first Ancient Technology side quest.

Gunmar’s side quests do become tedious and they must be completed between each Lost Relic quest from Florentius.
