ESO Necrom: How To Complete A Hidden Fate Quest

After completing the Fate's Proxy quest in The Elder Scrolls Online (ESO): Necrom, you will have uncovered the plot against Hermaeus Mora for investigating Tel Rendys, the Necrom Necropolis, and the Tranquil Catalog. As you will need to continue investigating this conspiracy against Mora, Leramil the Wise will task you with finding out more about "the relic, the rite, and the dream" by speaking with your newest ally, Scruut.

The next Zone Quest, "A Hidden Fate," sees you advancing your investigations into a plot against the Daedric Prince, receiving some assistance from Scruut and Curate Gadayn from the Necropolis. Once again, we've pulled out the quest log to detail everything about A Hidden Fate quest and how to complete it in ESO: Necrom chapter.

Players will continue their findings in Apocrypha by starting in Cipher's Midden, which, if you have yet to acquire Azandar Al-Cybiades, you can start his Companion Questline before beginning A Hidden Fate. Players will also gain access to Leramil's study in Cipher's Midden and discover a new location, the Infinite Panopticon, situated within a pocket dimension in Apocrypha.

This location will be pivotal towards your investigations as Hermaeus Mora's enemies seek to uncover "the dream" and its secrets mentioned in the Fate's Proxy quest. Completing this quest will add to the Zone Completion for Apocrypha and the Telvanni Peninsula.

To start the "A Hidden Fate" quest, you'll need to speak to Scruut before finding Leramil the Wise at the Necrom Bindery Balcony. Below we've listed all the quest objectives to be completed for the "A Hidden Fate" quest to help Leramil continue investigating the conspiracy in ESO: Necrom:
