So I'm doing some backtracking and I want to finish the quest "discerning the transmundane" and to be more specific, the "Transcribe the lexicon" part but I'm stuck. When I activate the quest and look on the map where it is, it tells me to go to Alftand and down. When I go there and look at where to go again it points to the woods between Silent Moon Camp and Korvanjund. What to do? :P
You have to go through Aftland through a series of underground dungeons eventually leading into Blackreach. It's a huge underground city. You basically need to get into the Tower of Mzark which is located underground in Blackreach. The markers just point to the area where you should be underground; not above ground like most quests.
I went there again though and didn't find the lexicon there. And I can't find it in my inventory, which is making me worry like hell. I'll be going to Riverwood to check if I left it in the chest there. :(
Nope, not there either. Is it possible to sell the lexicon? I don't think I've sold any books though. :/ Ugh, does this mean I can't get the Oghma Infinium?
Probably not, since the lexicon is considered a quest item and cannot be removed from your inventory. My guess is that if you left it there a long time, the dungeon might have reset and ate your lexicon.
