I've lost my Ayleid Reference Book that I need to solve that puzzle with the pillar in the cave. Please help?

  1. I must have sold or given away the book by accident. Now I have no reference material for solving the puzzle in that reseach quest for the Arcane University. I either need to know how to get another copy of the reference book, or I need the information in it. Not concerned about spoilers, I just want to finish this quest as quickly as i can.

Accepted Answer

  1. Use the console (~) and type "player.additem 0003353b 1" without the quotes. That should give you the Ayleid Reference Text. See if that helps you with your predicament.

  1. You need to hit it with a fire spell, then a frost spell, then a damage magika spell, then a fortify magika. There should be a chest near the entrance to the pillar thing that has all of these spell scrolls if you don't have those.
