Shalidor's insights (Skyrim walkthrough).

To start the Shalidor's insights skyrim mission, you need to speak to Urag at the College of Winterhold, within the Arcanaeum, which is basically a huge library. He will tell you that there are some books and writings which are missing in the grand skyrim library, and that some of these writings were written by the Arch-Mage Shalidor; who wrote down some secrets and knowledge; "which might benefit us all greatly..." Urag states mysteriously, further saying that he is one of the only ones in Skyrim which can translate the magical and powerful writings. The writings are scattered across the land, and the first one will be located in Segunda's Kiss, a giant camp; as in a camp filled with giants. Sneak your way in, kill them all or even use a invisibility spell; the way of acquiring it is your choice of preference. You only need to have joined the College of Winterhold to undertake this mission, that is the only prerequisite.

Mission objectives:

1. - Find Shalidor's writings

2. - Talk to Urag

1. Find Shalidor's Writings

After talking to Urag, he will tell you the last known whereabouts of some of Shalidor's writings, but warns you that it might be a dangerous feat. The first part of the writings is located in Segunda's Kiss, a place known to be holy for the giants of Skyrim. They will attack you if you enter there camp, so if you do not have the strength to take them on just yet, sneak around them and grab the writings before running off again. If however, you are some kind of macho fighter or sleek magician you might want to take them all on, as good practice.

2. Talk to Urag

After finding the writings, you should return to Urag gro-Shub in the College of Winterhold, he will translate them in 1-2 days. Return to him after this time has passed to hear what the writings had to reveal.
