Skyrim: The Skull Of Corruption, How To Get

The Skull of Corruption is a gift from Vaermina. This is for completing the Waking Nightmare quest in Dawnstar. To use Dreamsteal simply cast it on a sleeping person, and it will collect their dreams. Players must charge it using soul gems to use its full power.

You should never hurt a sleeping NPC. Only awake people are affected by Waking Nightmare and Psychic Agony, the two harmful effects of the enchantment. Once the Dreamsteal active effect is used, it is applied to a sleeping NPC.

***If you don’t wish to kill Erandur, you can still finish the mission and gain him as a disciple, but you won’t be able to earn the Skull of Corruption if you spare his life.
