ESO Delve: Gandranen Ruins

Greetings fellow knowledge seeker, enclosed you will find the Delve Report compiled by BenevolentBowd containing information on its inhabitants, loot found, and a map.

General Information

Tales say that Gandranen was built by an Ayleid sorcerer, a worshiper of Hermaeus Mora who so loved books that she created a series of magical halls that would attact books from across Tamriel, no matter where–or when–they were published.

Gandranen Ruins are located in central Shadowfen.  Nearest wayshrine is Hissmir which is a short distance to the south.  It is a medium size delve and contains mostly bookshelves.  Overall, a poor place to find crafting materials.
