"I must take the glyph-enscribed parchment to Domitian Verus so he may start translating it."
When you speak to Verus, he will give you a Metal Tankard and a bottle of Verus' Mead, if desired. Once he speaks about the glyphs on the Spire, he will also now sell Snake Posters.
Rathmer says the book is not yet ready. He gave it to a professional scribe, Miro, in Leyawiin to transcribe, but it hasn't been done yet. You now have to go to Leyawiin to see what progress Miro has made.
On the floor inside you discover the charred corpse of Rhea Miro. Once activated, your quest log updates.
"Rhea Miro is dead and her office is a pile of smouldering ash. An accident? The Runes of Cyrodiil is certainly motive for arson. I had better search around for clues."
Resting on the broken chandelier is a Charred Transcript. Take it. Now, you have to go back to Rethmer in Bravil to tell him what happened. He thanks you for informing him. Now return to Verus in the Guild.
Speaking to Verus removes the transcript from your posession and completes this quest. Your reward, if asked for, is the key to Display Case A. This case is just to the right of the entrance door and contains a Dwemer Spider Leg. Additionally, you get to keep the money Verus gave you to buy the transcript.
"Even though the transcript I brought Verus was badly charred, he was able to extract from it a set of cooridinates. I should consult Aster Cei as to their meaning."
Domitian Verus was unable to find the mysterious glyph in the book, but there appeared to be a set of coordinates that referred to a location where the glyph could be found. Speak to Aster Cei, who is to the right of the entrance, past and underneath the stairs.
Cei will now sell you a poster, Skeleton Study I and, if asked, will tell you that Teav is returning from the Newfound Spire, where he has discovered artifacts and a weapon.
Make your way through the Pristine Spire Ruin to a large cave at the south.
Searching the Ayleid reveals, amongst other items, an Ayleid Scroll. When this is taken, the following is added to your quest log.
"I've found a scroll on the corpse of what looks like an Ayleid Captive. Its writing is illegible. I should take it back to Verus."
There is a fair bit of loot in this tiny plane, on the Ascended Warlock, including its Warlock Staff, on the Ayleid Captive and in the Warlock Coffer. One notable item in the Coffer is a Warlock Glyph. These come in different types and, although they oddly aren't worth anything, will enchant an item with effects determined by which Glyph is used.
When you take the scroll back to Verus, he says that Soland and Sova have discovered several Ayleid Scrolls over the years. Although he can trabslate it, he can't understand it, as they are often allusional, so he suggests you take it to Sova as she will be able to do better.
When asked about a reward, Verus gives you the key to Display Case B, which is to the left of the entrance door behind the counter where Teav was, and contains a Psychotic Chili.
Go speak to Sova, whose room is off the balcony accessed by the righthand staircase. When you speak to her, she asks you if you have heard the news regarding Teav. This is not the news about him returning with a weapon and artifacts. Apparently, Teav and the Assistants Sirnus and Cirru are dead, only Assistant Mogen survived. Bandits attacked the camp and stole everything.
You can respond to Teav's death in two ways, either by saying "Teav will live on in our memories" or "Teav wasn't all that great." Although Sova doesn't appreciate the second sentiment, it makes no diference.
Showing the Ayleid Scroll to Sova completes this quest. Sova says that translating it will take some time, and meanwhile you should speak to Norlene.
When asked about advancement, Sova will promote you to Aspirant. She also tells you that Teav's funeral will be held tonight at 11 o'clock.
Sova now has two posters to sell you, an Eye Poster being the new one. Domitian Verus will now sell Skeleton Study II.
The glass cover on the pedestal in the Library to the left of the door which holds Alzor's Marvellous Maw has now been removed.
After Teav's funeral, Norlene will speak to you regarding your next quest A Vengeance Unfulfilled.
