One of the Daedric Artifact that is available in Skyrim is Vaermina’s Skull of Corruption. Unlike the Azura’s Star quest, getting the Skull of Corruption or not will require you to be at a specific level.
The requirement in order to trigger the ‘Waking Nightmare’ Daedric Quest is you need to be at least Level 14. If you’re way past that, then let’s hunt for the Skull of Corruption.
SKULL OF CORRUPTION – a Daedric Artifact
Once you get past level 14, you can now trigger the quest in Dawnstar.
Talk to the Priest of Mara named Erandur. He’ll discuss with you the dreams that haunts Dawnstar and will require your help. It seems that the Daedric Lord Vaermina is behind this!
Agree to help him solve the mystery of Dawnstar and he’ll ask you to follow him to a temple.
Once you reach your destination, he’ll warn you about the Miasma that is lurking inside the NightCaller temple. Also, there will be Ocrs and Priest that you will fight.
Inside the temple, make sure that you have some Potions with you as there will be some tough enemies ahead. Don’t forget to save.
Before you can reach deep inside the temple where the Skull of Corruption is resting, you will have to do a series of pick up quest. You’ll be asked by Erandur to locate a book and a potion for you to drink.
When you drink the Torpor Potion, you’ll go in a dream state where you’ll learn the reason why the Miasma is inside the temple.
Following your mini-mission in the dream world, go deeper into the temple and you’ll fight Erandur’s colleagues.
Once you take kill Veren and Thorek, you now have to choose…
KILL ERANDUR or DESTROY THE SKULL of CORRUPTION STAFF
Kill Erandur and get the Staff of Corruption for yourself.
Let Erandur destroy the Staff of Corruption and he’ll join you instead. Take note that Erandur is one of the most powerful companions to have in the game.
