The Phantasmal chest randomly transports itself to 1 of 30 locations all across Skyrim and Solstheim every 24 hours. The locations are completely random but the chest is very apparent and easy to spot, usually positioned above cave entrances or along prominent ridges. It emits a loud chiming sound like the chime sounds in the Temple of Kynareth, that can be heard from a distance making it easier to find while exploring.



The Phantom Cache can be started by finding Sanamia's Journal (6) found inside a knapsack at a Riekling camp on one of the small island clusters north of Solstheim, which is also incidentally Sanamia's place of demise. The quest will auto complete when discovering the chest, even if the journal was not found. The text of the journal itself gives hints of 2 possible locations the chest can appear in; Angarvunde, and Arc wind pass.

When the chest is activated, it will add a novice conjuration spell "Summon Phantasmal Chest", which will place the chest at your location for a few seconds to allow use of the chest. When it disappears, it is stored in a utility cell.


These are based on the references and only show the Cell where the chest can be found. For detailed pictures, see below.
