Azura's Star
Jsut got Azura's star and can't work out whether I should take it to Nelacar or Azura. I know what the outcome of both is but I'm stuck with the moral dilema of it all.

The default variant isn't that bad. Ah who am I kidding? An all-in-one is leagues better than the default star.

What moral dilemma? You can either do what's right or be a huge ♥♥♥♥. That's no dilemma, that's a choice. :)

Anyway, after a point, black or white star doesn't matter, random filled grand gems and black gems are more common than your enchantements. I ended up with a dresser full of these two, even after enchanting me a lot of different stuff and totally equipping 3 followers. So, don't bother. The real question is do you want to use the priestress as a follower, or not?

And if you want a grand white soul, just go kill a mammouth. That's what they're there for.

On the other hand, there are plenty of Black Soulgems to be had later in the game if you'd rather not tick off one of the only somewhat benevolent Daedra...

Thanks for the input, gamers. An FYI - chose the white one. Don't really get into all that necromancy (cos it's not really Evil Dead enough for me). After that I got Vampirism and had to use one of my black soul gems to sort a cure because I'd left it too long for the cure disease potion. Meh. Looks like I'm gonna have to hunt down the black soul gems a bit more. It's not like I don't have the cash to buy the odd one IF I feel the need to be getting NPC souls.

black star ftw. necromancers ftw. busty khajiit gals ftw.

Take it to azura you have to go into the star to complete quest make sure you are in high level and plenty of health you can use the priestess as a companion afterwards when not required she will return to the alter

Black star variant FTW imo... I much prefer a grand soul gem that can only be filled with a grand soul and not petty skever soul etc. I should mention my primary weapons are conjured ones with the soul trap perk so I have problems with aquiring lesser souls in grand soul gems.

One of those essential mods. Works flawlessly.
There's non-Dawnguard version on Nexus if needed.

just drop a soulgem if its say a grand soul gem and you get a petty in it the game will delete the soul and then just pick it back up. other then that get the black star tons better in my book.

Oh, and by the by, I found out earlier, on another thread that you can cure vampirism with garlic bread. Genius who'd have thunk it?
