Tel Aruhn is the home of the Telvanni Archmagister, Lord Gothren. It is located on a small island in Zafirbel Bay, to the west of the Telvanni capital of Sadrith Mora. It was constructed in the middle Merethic Era by Aldmeri explorers.

Tel Aruhn itself is a relatively small community, with a variety of interesting services in the wizard tower, and more commonplace supply stores in the houses surrounding it (for those who cannot levitate). While Tel Aruhn is a quiet, scenic place to relax, aside from magical goods, there is little to recommend the island to any serious adventurer. A place to provision, or recover for adventuring in the region, some find it a good base, more intimate than Sadrith Mora.

The TowerEdit

Inside the tower is an apothecary and an alchemist. Barusi Venim the enchanter and Felara Andrethi the healer are in the living quarters. The Telvanni Archmagister Gothren is attended by his two dremora guards, located beyond the main levitation shaft.

The TownEdit

The Plot and Plaster is a good pub in the town, however its owner, Drarayne Girith, is having bad dreams. Maren Uvaren is an enchantress in her home, and the stores of a trader, an apothecary and a smith are surrounding the wizard tower. The crafty Savile Imayn is a slave trader at the slave market near the entrance to the Underground.


Gothren is the stalling Master Wizard you'll have to visit to become Telvanni Hortator or to replace him as the new Archmagister.

For a complete list, see People in Tel Aruhn.

Getting There and AroundEdit

The Saucy at the docks can take you to Dagon Fel, Tel Mora and Vos. Nearby, Sadrith Mora has an Imperial Cult shrine, which you can teleport to, with a Mages Guild hall nearby, complete with a Guild Guide for those in a hurry to leave.

Places of Interest Around Tel AruhnEdit

  • The cavern of Nammu, on the mainland coast west of Tel Aruhn.
  • There is a large Daedric Shrine to Molag Bal on the second island to the west, and other caves and dwellings on islands nearby, so there is plenty to do, as long as you are willing to get a bit wet.
  • The Grazelands is easily accessible to the northwest, and Molag Amur is accessible to the southwest, accessible meaning short swims between the islands.
