Su-Zahleel elders try to cure the psychotic Hist
The peaceful Argonians of the Su-Zahleel tribe have been abducted and pressed into slavery by the Xit-Xaht—warrior fanatics that have been driven mad by their psychotic Hist. I must rescue the captives and put an end to the Xit-Xaht threat.
Help Heem-Jas rescue the captured Su-Zahleel tribe members

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Talk to Heem-Jas inside Ruins of Mazzatun to receive the quest or take the quest via Collections tab.
  2. Rescue the captives.
  3. Defeat Zatzu.
  4. Explore the ruins and rescue more captives.
  5. Defeat Mighty Chudan.
  6. Defeat Xal-Nur the Slaver.
  7. Solve the puzzle and rescue the elders (or fail and kill them all).
  8. Defeat Tree-Minder Na-Kesh.
  9. Speak to Heem-Jas to complete the quest.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]


  • There is no obligation to save any of the six Su-Zahleel elders. Allowing an elder to be killed will cause more enemies to spawn and will result in their absence during the cleansing ritual scene at the end of the quest, but will otherwise have no impact. However, keeping all six elders alive in Veteran Mode will unlock the Savior of the Su-Zahleel achievement.
