Lost Knowledge And The Sallow Regent [Skyrim]

In Solstheim, Neloth becomes one of the most interacted with NPCs when it comes to obtaining valuable information in the Dragonborn DLC. There are more than one Lost Knowledge quest which ultimately lead to the discovery of new Black Books. This time around we look at black book, The Sallow Regent.

For other black books, review the Complete Black Book Locations List.

  • Speak with Neloth after completing several of his tasks.
    Note: After 3 tasks, Lost Knowledge which leads to The Sallow Regent was assigned.
    Tip: It isn’t necessary to speak with Neloth before starting this quest. You could come across it via a Madman near the northern shores of Solstheim or simply wander into White Ridge Barrow.
  • Travel to White Ridge Barrow which is located southwest of Saering’s Watch.
  • Move through White Ridge Barrow to White Ridge Sanctum.
  • Follow the short path to a large chamber.
  • There are 3 paths, east, west and south.
    ]Note: East leads to an Imbuing Chamber Machine where you can create spiders. West leads to ruby geodes. South leads to a shout wall and black book The Sallow Regent.
  • Following the eastern path leads to an imbuing chamber machine which creates spiders from several different materials. There are several kinds including mind control, jumping and exploding spiders. For the complete list with ingredients read Creating Spiders With Imbuing Chamber Machine [Skyrim].
  • Following the southern path leads to Dukaan.
  • Defeat Dukaan and receive Dukaan’s mask.
    ]Dukaan’s Mask: Increases frost resistance by 50% and frost spell damage by 25%.
