Detailed WalkthroughEdit

In the Reliquary Ruins in the Reliquary of Stars, you find a torn letter held in place by a strange metal object.

Read the letter.
"My love, I can stand it no longer. Though I rebuked you, my heart yearns for your touch. To utter such words aloud is sacrilege, so I put these words down in hope you find them. Find my second page, and you will find the mate."

You take the metal object and the letter. The second half is northwest in the same area as the trapped Behelir during Lost in Study.

The second letter tells you to use the mates of metal to unlock something in the western room. Activate the sealed chest, and you find a Lock of Hair within it.

"My love, must I wait forever?"

You hear a female voice and follow it south. The spirit of Erraduure appears when you are close. You tell her that her lover is long dead.

"Oh, no. I hoped we would join together in one last embrace, before triggering our death with my voice. But I whispered his name aloud as I waited…was that enough to collapse the stones? I should…go now…"

She gives you a reward, and you can find the last letter next to her.


  • The other letter won't exist in the ruins before starting the quest.

Quest StagesEdit

Forbidden Love
Finishes Quest Journal Entry
Objective: Find the Second Half of the Letter
Objective: Find What the Mates of Metal Unlock
Objective: Follow the Voice
* Any text displayed in angle brackets (e.g., <Alias=LocationHold>) is dynamically set by the game and will be filled in with the appropriate word(s) when seen in game.
  • Not all Journal Entries may appear in your journal; which entries appear and which entries do not depends on the manner in which the quest is done.
  • Stages are not always in order of progress. This is usually the case with quests that have multiple possible outcomes or quests where certain tasks may be done in any order. Some stages may therefore repeat objectives seen in other stages.
