Quest Stages

Auryen's Notes: The Bloodworm Helm (DBM_AMJournalQST06)
Stage Journal Entry
0, 5 [Technical stages]
10 Notes from the library, written by Auryen, suggest that the Bloodworm Helm of Mannimarco may be either in Skyrim or High Rock. If I should happen across a coven of necromancers, I should investigate and see if the helm is in fact here.

Objective 10: Locate the Bloodworm Helm.

30 I slew the leader of a necromancer coven trying to raise the Wolf Queen from the grave, and the necromancer was in possession of the Bloodworm Helm. Auryen's notes are proving to be invaluable.

50 If it has already been found:
Auryen theorizes in his journal that the Bloodworm Helm of Mannimarco could be found with necromancers of either Skyrim or High rock, and his theory proved correct, as I have already found the helm. Maybe I should just start burning these irrelevant journals - they are starting to take up room.
