Voiced by Cara Theobold

Nepheli Loux, Warrior is an NPC in Elden Ring. Nepheli Loux is a warrior and fellow tarnished who was ordered by decree from her adoptive father to kill and dethrone Godrick. She wears clothing similar to the starting Hero class, and she can help you in the battle against Godrick the Grafted if summoned. Her summoning sign is golden and is just outside the boss fog. Other NPC Summon opportunities include boss fights against Godfrey, First Elden Lord and Omenkiller (in Village of the Albinaurics). Progress in her questline to have her summon sign available for these encounters. 

 

The puppet of Nepheli Loux can be summoned for aid in battle by using the Nepheli Loux Puppet Ashes.

 

Let the scars I carve remind them.   

I am Nepheli Loux. Warrior.

 

Nepheli Loux Location in Elden Ring

Nepheli Loux can initially be found at Stormveil Castle, inside a room before reaching the Secluded Cell site of grace. [Map link]

  • While outside Roundtable Hold, she can be attacked and drops Stormhawk Axe when defeated. 
  • Her adoptive father is Gideon Ofnir, leader of Roundtable Hold. Her real father might be Godfrey, First Elden Lord.
  • After defeating Godrick the Grafted and exhausting the initial dialog with Gideon Ofnir at Roundtable Hold, you can find her in the room outside the library.
  • After exhausting her dialogue at Roundtable Hold, you can find her under the stone bridge leading up to the Village Of The Albinaurics. [Map link]
  • After defeating Omenkiller, Nepheli will return to Roundtable Hold, crouching near the bottom of the stairs next to the blacksmith.
  • Nepheli questline point of failure: If the player speaks to Melina at the Forge of Giants site of grace (triggering the cutscene which causes the Roundtable Hold to burn) before finishing Nepheli's dialogue and defeating Omenkiller at the Village of the Albinaurics, then she will disappear for good. Her Stormhawk Axes drop at the village and the questline ends. To avoid this failure, defeat Omenkiller and finish her dialogue before resting at the Forge of Giants.

 

Nepheli Loux Questline: How to complete Nepheli Loux's Quest

Her Father's Orders

  • Find Nepheli inside the room to the north of the heavily guarded Stormveil Castle courtyard.
  • Exhaust her dialogue so that she offers her help in fighting Godrick the Grafted.
  • (Optional) Before you go through the gold fog door, there is a summoning sign next to it that you can use to summon Nepheli.
    • Regardless if you are playing online or offline, you can still use her summoning sign.
  • After defeating Godrick, she moves to the room outside the library in Roundtable Hold. Speak to her and exhaust her dialogue. 
    • She won't move here if you didn't talk to Gideon Ofnir at all yet. Talk to him and reload at the site of grace and she will appear.
    • You must also rest at the Godrick the Grafted site of grace for her to appear at the Hold.
    • She'll then reward you with the Arsenal Charm.

 Seluvis's Potion

  • Finish her quest above, or skip it. Either way this quest will be doable. You must meet her at the Roundtable Hold once.
    • Note: If you offer her Seluvis's potion when meeting her in the Roundtable Hold the first time, she will refuse to take it. Once she returns to the Roundtable Hold from the Village of the Albinaurics, you can offer it again by speaking to Gideon about her despair.
  • Speak to Preceptor Seluvis and receive the quest.
    • If Seluvis is dead, you can continue on with the quest starting from the next step.
  • Find Nepheli at the Village Of The Albinaurics, exhaust her dialogue, and defeat the elite enemy Omenkiller which can be found on the other side of the bridge above her.
  • Return to the Roundtable Hold and find Nepheli downstairs, next to the first fog wall. Speak to her.
  • Speak to Gideon Ofnir and ask him about Nepheli.
    • If the player has the potion, he will offer you a choice: either give him the potion so that he can dispose of it, or give it to Nepheli. If it is given to Nepheli, she will become unresponsive and leave. She can then be found in Seluvis's secret room, turned into a puppet.
      • Either way, you can return to Preceptor Seluvis to complete his portion of the quest.
    • If the player does not have the potion, the quest progresses along the line where Nepheli does not take the potion.
      • This happens if Seluvis is dead and the player found Nepheli at the Albinauric Village and killed the Omen Killer having never received the quest from Seluvis. This can still happen if Seluvis is still alive.
  • The Stormhawk King found in the Chapel of Anticipation can be given to Nepheli in Roundtable Hold, provided she did not take Seluvis's Potion.
  • Roderika's questline must be progressed to the point where she can upgrade spirit ashes, before you can give Nepheli the Stormhawk King ashes. If you reach Crumbling Farum Azula, Roderika and Hewg will have some new dialogue, which must be completed before you can continue (despite being essentially unrelated).

Lord of Limgrave

  • After completing the quest above by not giving Nepheli Seluvis's Potion, you must progress Kenneth Haight's quest to the point where he's in Fort Haight saying he has to look for a fitting lord to rule Limgrave.
  • You can find Nepheli, Kenneth, and Gostoc in the Stormveil Castle throne room near the Godrick the Grafted site of grace. If they do not appear, spawn from the Godrick the Grafted site of grace and rest at the Secluded Cell site of grace (do not merely teleport to it), which may fix the issue. (If this doesn't work, you can try going back to Fort Haight, where Kenneth Haight usually stands, which might trigger him and Nepheli to move to the throne room.)
    • Prerequisites: Morgott must be defeated before all three NPCs can appear in the throne room. The quest will still advance if either Kenneth or Gostoc is dead. You must talk to Gideon about helping Nepheli get back on her feet, to allow her to move to the throne room. Warning: Killing Gideon prevents this dialogue and results in Nepheli dying where she is at the time, leaving her items behind.
      • If all requirements have been met and the NPCs have still not moved to Godrick's throne room, rest at the Lake-Facing Cliff site of grace. 
    • Rewards: Nepheli will give the player an Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone at the end of her questline. She can also be summoned for the fight with Godfrey, First Elden Lord in Leyndell, Ashen Capital.
    • An additional Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone will be sold by Gatekeeper Gostoc for 20,000 Runes. (Not applicable to his bell bearing if he was killed.)

 

Dialogue: Nepheli Loux

Introduction

  • "Be proud. You were a fine warrior.
    Your only mistake was your choice of master.
    Let the winds lift you, to a higher place."

When attacked

  • I see. You are but a simple villain. Let the scars remind you; this lesson comes from Nepheli Loux!
  • (On player kill) You wouldn't even register as a threat to father. Hurry up and die.

When killed

  • Father... I am slain. Please...become Elden Lord...

Speaking to Nepheli

  • "Well, who do we have here?
    Tarnished, are you? Clearly not one of Godrick's lot.
    I am Nepehli Loux.. Tarnished and warrior, like you.
    I'm here by decree of my father.
    How utterly repellant this is...
    This "grafting" of Godrick's ill befits a Lord.
    He's tainted the very winds."
  • "If you intend to challenge Godrick,
    I ask you call upon me.
    The winds run could with his deeds.
    I'm certain father would permit me aid the fight."

Small Talk

  • "Apologies, but I've idled long enough.
    As fellow Tarnished we must each follow our own guidance. Down whatever road takes us to the throne of Elden Lord.

At the Roundtable

  • "You again...
    I thought you'd receive a summons to the Roundtable.
    Nepheli Loux. We met at Stormveil.
    I'm glad to see you here. I have something for you.
    I found it in Godrick's grafting grounds.
    You defeated him. You should have it. Make good use of it. I don't intend to make a habit of scavenging corpses."
    [Hands you x1 Arsenal Charm]
  • "Ah yes. I wonder if you've met my foster father?
    He's in his study. The room Ensha's guarding just over there.
    If you haven't already, I advise you introduce yourself.
    Father is the leader of the Roundtable.
    I'm sure talking to him will be worth your while."
  • "It's about time I headed off.
    I'll see you again, warrior, should the fates deign it."

At the Village of the Albinaurics

  • Oh, it's you... Well, what do you make of it? What's happened to this village?
    I witnessed a sight much the same, in my infancy.
    The oppression of the weak. Murder and pillage unchecked.
    A waking nightmare, made by men.

  • But this time, I'm a woman grown.
    And though the suffering cannot be undone, I can still mete out justice.
    Justice to the oppressors.
    Let the scars I carve remind them. I am Nepheli Loux, Warrior.

At the Roundtable Hold after defeating the boss of the Village of the Albinaurics

  • Ah, you... Please, leave me be. It's pathetic, I know, but I...need to think.
  • (After speaking to Gideon)
    ...So you know already, do you? Right. It's true. My father cast me out.
    For indulging my emotions. Forgetting the mission. Punishment for offing his pawns.
    Father...rather, Lord Gideon has offered me guidance all my life.
    I would have done anything for him, to place him on the throne of Elden Lord.
    And yet I... Though it was not my intent... I betrayed him...
  • I...can no longer trust in father... To think he'd order his men to enact such tragedy... Where is the justice he purports, in that?
    He once told me that if he became Elden Lord, he would never allow the downtrodden to be cheated ever again.
    Was he simply lying to me?
  • No, no, no... How could I say that? Father has always given me his guidance... And now...I've lost it...

After giving her the Stormhawk King

  • "In this ash, I can smell the ancient storm.
    It reminds me of my first hawk."
  • I'm... not like Roderika. I don't feel the presence of spirits, let alone see them.
    Still, this ash... It reminds me of my first hawk. Thank you

 At Stormveil Castle throne room

  • "It's been some time. I must thank you, for your aid.
    I told father I would be with him no longer.
    I remembered the vow I took when I first became a warrior, so many moons ago.
    This land is much like the one from which I hail.
    I will call upon the storm, to drive away the foulness that has settled on the winds."
  • "Again, I am Nepheli Loux. Warrior.
    Some call me by the title of Lady, but I remain the same woman underneath.
    Though I have now abandoned my former guidance.
    I cannot express how much you've helped me.
    [Hands you x1 Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone]
    Should you become Elden Lord. I would gladly lighten your burden."
  • "Farewell, fellow warrior. I will remain, to summon the storm.
    But your guidance, and your fight... Surely lie elsewhere."

      If you ignore Godrick and go straight to Ranni's Rise to start her (Ranni) questline, Nepheli will move to Roundtable like when you normally kill Godrick. Her questline doesn't look like interrupted in any way. You just completely skip meeting in Stormveil Castle

        ive given her the hawk, taken the fort for kenneth, beaten morgott, and exhausted all dialogue with kenneth, nepheli, and gideon. shes not moving. still moping in the basement and kenneth is still at the fort, all just repeating dialogue. maybe its because i killed gostoc?

        • Anonymous

          NOTE: You can go straight and kill Omen mini boss, without any of the steps you should do before it. If you did this, you can now do all steps to giver her the potion, like talking to Gideon, then to her, then go to the village under the bridge, then talk to them again, etc., and NOW the potion will be still avaliable.

            It's sad that she doesn't return after defeating Maliketh if you defeated him before her quest was fixed. I defeated Maliketh before finding the Stormhawk ashes and before her quest was patched, so I didn't know that she can become a lord after the quest is patched and you shouldn't defeat Maliketh before that.

            I don't care about thee quest rewards, I just wanted her to survive because she was my favourite NPC in the game

            • Anonymous

              she is a boring character, doesn't really do anything except being summoned and giving you upgrade material. She didn't do anything to deserve lordship over Stormveil either, it's just given to her. it's a real shame because she could have been the perfect waifu

              • Anonymous

                Getting to Crumbling Farum Azula is NOT a necessary part of this quest. The actual trigger for Nepheli to get into the throne room is likely Consecrated Snowfields or Mountaintops of the Giants

                • if youre past morgott and none of them want to move, try warping to the Secluded Cell grace outside Godricks arena, check to see if Gostoc's name is still inside the arena on the map, sit again, made it disappear and they all moved like a flash mob into the throne room

                    IDK if anyone in the comments has stated this, but this guide is a little misleading.
                    Nepheli wasn't appearing in the Village of Albinaurics for me until I spoke to Albus, received the half of the medallion and killed Ensha.
                    The guide doesn't say anything about doing any of this, it just says go to the Village of Albinaurics, which is only part of the requirement for Nepheli to move there from Roundtable Hold.
                    She will NOT go to the village until AFTER you kill Ensha, which requires you to have received at least half of Haligtree Secret Medallion.

                      If you're having trouble getting the NPCs to go to the throne room, anytime after you beat Morgott you then have to go talk to Nepheli and Kenneth again regardless if you've completed all the steps and their dialog before. On multiple playthroughs this is what I had to do.

                      • I am not 100% on this BUT I THINK that Pidia is the real puppet master.

                        For example if you try to give the potion to Nepheli AFTER you have gotten the Deloris puppet you will not be given an option to give it to her.

                        I do not know if the same is true of Dung eater, but at least for Nepheli the option does not seem to be there after Pidia is dead. If that is the case it does make sense as creating puppets is not a common activity and as such would likely be an obscure art.

                        It is regrettable because here I sit with a dispondant girl doubting her very existence and I can do nothing to make her MY thrall. Even with the potion in hand.

                        So It seems the potion is not what makes the puppet. The potion only acts as a hypnosis to get the drinker to willingly come to Pidia. At least in the case of Nepheli. Once at the tower, Pidia goes to work turning the drinker into a puppet.

                        Again, not 100% on this, but this has been my observation.

                        • I did NOT reach Crumbling Farum Azula (the farther grace reached is Forbidden Lands) and I she moved to the throne room anyway. I'm not sure but looks like you need to get rid of the Seluvis Potion (giving it to Dung Eater or Gideon)

                            I gave Nepheli the stormhawk king BEFORE even talking to gideon about helping her get back on her feet, assuming it wasn't necessary for the quest progression or that I could do it right after talking to her. Nepheli accepted the ashes, but now the dialogue with Gideon is no longer available and she won't move from the Roundtable to Stormveil (I have defeated Morgott). Did I just randomly mess up the quest for doing dialogues in the wrong order? :T

                                  If you are unable to give the Stormhawk King to Nepheli, talk to Gideon and tell him she's sad. Then go exhaust her dialogue to give her the ash. She'll have more dialogue after this too

                                    Resting at the Lake-Facing Cliffs worked for me. It does say it in the footnotes of the guide towards the end, just wanted confirm that works.

                                      I did all the quests steps stated above, killed morgott and then had to quit and log back in for them to appear at the throne. None of the other “fixes” helped, so try just quitting if it’s not working for you as well.

                                        I beat Morgott and finished everything with Nepheli (given her the storm hawk ash, she was in Roundtable) and Kenneth (he's at the fort, saying that he needs to find a proper ruler for Limgrave). However, the trio didn't gather at the Stormveil throne room until I have spoken to Melina about kindling at the Forbidden Lands grace.

                                            After killing Morgott, I had to talk to Melina a second time. First is when she gives you the Rold Medallion in Morgott's room at Grace. The second was when I was going to Stormveil trying to get them to show up. I passed time at the Grace. Melina showed up and told me to go to the Great Forge, and then they were in the throne room. This was AFTER I had talked to Enia at Roundtable and she told me to go there as well after asking about burning the impenetrable thorns. So maybe that is the order; Kill Morgott; talk to Melina 1; Talk to Enia; Talk to Melina 2.

                                              Completing Boc the seamster's Questline made her finally move to Stormveil castle for some reason.

I can't say for certain this was the trigger, but i had rested there before after killing Morgott (and doing the other things mentioned).

This is my second playthrough and none of this **** happens.

Messed around for a few hours tonight, did some backtracking and something triggered her to move to the throne room... the only things I did worth noting were that I found Pidia's corpse in Caria Manor, killed the Black Knife Assassin in Altus Plateau & found/talked to Boc in the Capital. I assume finding Pidia did it since that stems from Seluvis' quest.

                                                            Why would Kenneth have this dialog if she's dead, or not here ? is she dead ? Is this a bug ?
                                                            For info I killed Gostoc way earlier, now i'm clearing Farum Azula, I feel this quest is lost on this playthrough.

                                                              On my ng+1, i didnt defeat the baleful shadow (ranni's quest) nor radahn and both nepheli and haight moved to the throne room after i rest at the secluded cell sog, so i think the only requirement are beating morgott

                                                                The current map link for where nephelli goes after you exhaust her dialogue the first time (where she is under the bridge leading up to the village of albinaurics) is wildly off. Instead, if you head directly east of the village (on the map) you will find her resting at the first tree your cursor intersects with. Hope this gets fixed!

                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                  Nepheli vanishing after malikeths death is not a bug. It just happened to me, that she left her axes, or dropped items suggests that she is dead. If you don’t give her the bird ashes, she prob offs herself.

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    • Anonymous

I killed Kenneth on accident after finishing his questline til where he says he needs to go find a new lord of Stormveil or whatever. I was talking to him when a monster started attacking us and i panicked and attacked Kenneth. I killed him so I could google if I can undo aggro... which would've been possible if I hadn't just freakin' killed him just then! Damn it!! Killed Gostoc because I hate him for stealing my runes... wish I knew he was a source for a +25 stone.

                                                                      • Anonymous

After that I did teleport to fort Haight to go and see Kenneth but he was gone, at that point teleported to the Godrick the Grafted site of grace and did go sit at the Secluded Cell site of grace without teleporting as recomended and they all moved to the Throne room.

                                                                        • Anonymous

Just beat Morgott, and rest at the grace in front of the throne room of Stormveil and they'll move after you complete all the steps for Kenneth and Nepheli.

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                Want her summon, but hate the idea of kissing out on a limited resource this run.

Resting at Godrick grace wasnt enough. After killing Morgott, Gostoc was standing around kicking Godrick's severed head like usual BUT was able to sell to me, except WITHOUT the Dragon stone (until he finally moved to throne room)

                                                                                  • Anonymous

I had also talked to Nephali downstairs at RTH and Kenneth at his castle multiple times prior to this to try and get them to move. In fact without this page I would not have known they were supposed to do anything else. I had seen something on Reddit about Gostoc selling an ancient dragon smithing stone later in the game and it was just never happening so I searched for an explanation and found this page.

                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                      Ranni's quest is most likely not the necessary trigger for them to move
                                                                                      I think the questline is just bugged because everyone here seems to be just throwing guesses as to what exactly you need to do to get it to work

                                                                                          • Got the two ancient dragon smithing stones, aka the three NPCs are in the throne room.

Just killing Morgott and doing everything else wasn't enough for me. She only moved into the throne room after I'd rested at the Forbidden lands SOG.

I think this page is missing the point of faillure I hit, because it only states she can die at the village, not at the roundtable.

Like, I defeated Morgot, and Kenneth Haight and Nepheli Loux wouldn't appear in Godrick the Grafted's throne room in Stormveil Castle, so I kept progressing quests and the game consistently checking on Stormveil Castle, and I noticed Gostoc was no longer in the courtyard, I teleported to Godrick the Grafted's Site of Grace after defeating The Baleful Shadow in Ranni's questline, low and behold Nepheli Loux and Kenneth Height are finally in the Throne Room! And I finally obtained the Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone!

                                                                                                                • Is there a way to kill Nepheli AFTER completing all questlines and get both Ancient Dragon Smithing Stones, to get her armor?

                                                                                                                  PS: My first run meet her, then lead enemy to her pos (cause i was to weak to kill them), hoping she would help me. She didnt! Then she was accidently attacked when i fought the enemy and killed me. :D So i had to kill Godrick without her help. I died so much for this error. So if its you 1st time, do what you want but:

                                                                                                                  DONT ATTACK HER (before Godfried)

I killed Morgott before Rykard, and after beating Morgott I tried all the recommended actions to get her to move (talking to her and Kenneth and Gideon, resting at secluded cell) but nothing worked. Then I beat Rykard and after resting at the secluded cell grace, she and Kenneth were in the throne room (I killed Gostoc so he wasn't there). It may be that the first 5 demigods must be killed to advance her storyline, not just Morgott and Rykard, but idk since I killed the others before heading to the Altus Plateau. Has anyone killed Radahn or Rennala last and tested to see when Nepheli moves?

                                                                                                                    • Anonymous

I hadn't restored any great runes from bosses, but after I restored Godrick's great rune they all moved. Hope this helps someone!

To avoid this failure defeat Omenkiller and finish her dialogue before resting at the Forge of Giants. - This is false!

                                                                                                                              • For the comments below about Nepheli disappearing and her axes dropping in the village, the trigger is resting at the Forge of Giants grace which shows Melina's cutscene and burns Roundtable Hold. This trigger has been vetted, confirmed, and is current as of patch 1.04. Added a point of failure to the wiki article as a precaution for other players.

                                                                                                                                • A thing I saw on Reddit about getting Gostoc and Nepheli to move to the throne room was that apparently the trigger is associated with entering the Godrick boss arena or the throne room in the opposite direction that you would go through them after beating Godrick. Here's the steps that worked for me:
                                                                                                                                  - Beat Morgott

                                                                                                                                  - Went back in the door at the back of Stormveil, through the throne room, to the Godrick grace.
                                                                                                                                  - Rested at the Godrick grace.
                                                                                                                                  - Nepheli, Gostoc and Kenneth were now all in the throne room.

                                                                                                                                    Just sit at Godrick's grace, buy some stock for Gastoc, and sit back a couple of times, They'll all be in the throne room.

                                                                                                                                    This is how I got it, because I always forgot her father even existed. (I guess that's why he's all knowing, forgettable and all..)

I had opened the gate when doing stormveil and unlocked Mountain top of gaints and she still hadn't moved. when i went back to check if gate was opened i actvated and rested at the gateside chamber grace and then the npc markers on the map changed and she was in the throne room. hope this helps

You do not need to encounter Godrick's fight to move her to the roundtable, it's just an option. Obtaining seluvis's potion is another trigger.

Giving her the potion will lock you out of her quest AND Gostoc & Kenneth will not move to the throne room. So you end up missing 2 Ancient Dragon Smithing Stones. Kinda dumb that giving her the potion locks you out of both but killing both Gostoc & Kanneth will only lock you out of 1...

                                                                                                                                                • NEPHELI IS AVAILABLE TO SUMMON FOR GODWYN’S FIGHT! If you have not killed her in any way, her summon sign appears in the exact same location as Melina’s was for Margott’s fight. I assume this is because she says she will support you becoming Elden Lord if you have fully advanced her quest line. However this begs the question of if her quest line is then truly over?

                                                                                                                                                  • Nepheli can be summoned for Godfrey’s fight!! Her summon sign was in the exact same location as Melina’s summon sign was for Morgott’s fight. I am guessing this is her continuing to support you becoming Elden Lord, but currently we have not been able to get any new dialogue at Stormveil.

                                                                                                                                                    • Ok, i want to help moderators edit the Lord Of Limgrave section. I am still at my first playthrough and havent even fought the Fire Giant. At the start i had killed Kenneth Height before patch 1.03 where they added to Nepheli and his questline. I killed him cuz he gave a golden seed. Now i kept Nepheli alive, gave to potion to her step father, lord of the roundtable hold, and gave her the Stormhawk King. All this time she thanked me because i gave her yhe stormhawk that reminded her of one she had in the past. Before i went to the Haligtree, she was still at the roundtable hold. I completed Haligtree, defeated Malenia but went back to the Haligtree to find the Seedbed Curses for Dung Eater's quest. Once i finished Dung Eater's Quest and received the Mending Rune of the Fell Curse, i when exploring to defeat all night bosses (been using Elden Ring MapGenie for locations) and when i went back to the roundtable hold, i went to check is anything changed and Nepheli was no longer where she has been for the past about 70 hours of gameplay. When i checked the ingame map, Gatekeeper Gostocs character icon had dissapeared as well. I went to Godrick the Grafted's site of grace and found that Nepheli was in the throne room along with Gostoc, she gave me the Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone and purchased another from Gostoc for 20,000 runes. Kenneth was nowhere to be seen since i killed him.

                                                                                                                                                      My theory is that Nepheli questline continued after the Dung Eater's quest was finished. Dung and Nepheli can be given the Seluvis potion, tieing them together to a quest, once all quests that ties the NPC or NPCs that are related to her was done, then her lord of limgrave questline was activated since it is her last destined location.

After my friends and I killed him (after a funny glitch where he started in second phase and was immortal by the way) I went back to the Roundtable and sure enough she was gone with two Stormhawk Axes in her place :/ She isn’t in the throne room and neither talking to Kenneth nor resting in the Secluded Cell fix it unfortunately

I never met this guy ''Kenneth Haight'' I have no ideia who he is, but I still got the two ancient dragon Smithing Stone. He is not need to progress this quest in my opinion, same about Roderika and Hewg. Nepheli was stuck in her spot for about 100 hours to me talking about the hawk, she only moved to the throne room when I killed the Fire Giant but not burned the city or entered Farum Azula. I just killed him and started to do every npc quest. I did Fia, Corhyn, Sellen, Yura questlines. Only Fia and Sellen were not totaly broken, but I think they are not related to Nepheli.
