For the quest you have to get orc, falmer, dark elf, wood elf and high elf blood. Where can I get the blood? Does the blood drop from the respective races or...? --- Dark Souls has made be paranoid of turning corners in real life, Skyrim has got me keeping an eye on the sky. PSN: hamz009
If you go back through the dwemer ruin that lead to black reach you can get the blood from all the dead bodies of the left over people who were searching the ruins the only one missing is dark elf. --- Do a barrel roll! (R or Z twice)
If you have 1.2 patch, book shelves do not work, so use the same technique with Septimus's body as a "container." (i.e. forget having to buy a house with a bookshelf). I went from lvl 1 to 15 to 81 in two days.
