Agganor's head on a spike
I met an Iron Orc shaman who had been banished by a younger rival. What's more, this rival, named Agganor, seems to be responsible for the Iron Orc and Scaled Court alliance. The old shaman wants me to avenge him.

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Talk to Lashburr Tooth-Breaker.
  2. Burn the Scaled Court standards.
  3. Kill Agganor inside Exarch's Stronghold.
  4. Mount Agganor's helmet on the pike.
  5. Return to Lashburr Tooth-Breaker.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Near the Valley of Scars Wayshrine, you come across a wounded Iron Orc sitting next to a campfire.

"Outsiders! Sniffing around our valley like hungry little goats. But this is Osh Ornim land, little goat. Iron Orc land! Away, little goat, or Lashburr will use its bones to pick our—argh! Flint and blood, don't make me yell. It hurts too much."
What happened to you?

Lashburr Tooth-Breaker says the Scaled Court is invading the Valley of Scars and that a younger shaman has banished Lashburr, taking his place instead. Lashburr thinks you understand his problem and asks you to avenge him: you need to burn the Scaled Court's standards, kill the liar, Agganor, and mount his helmet on a pike.

There are three standards to burn, located in the valley to the north from Lashburr's campfire. The enemies in this area include welwas and trolls, plus the Iron Orcs, but it is possible to sneak past most of the groups if you want to.

After you've burnt the banners, you need to enter Exarch's Stronghold to kill Agganor. He can be found at the lowest level of the stronghold, close to where the Skyshard is near the river. During the fight he will periodically become immune to all damage while summoning waves of Scaled Court members to assist him. Defeat Agganor, then head north across the wooden bridge. Exit the stronghold, and go towards the southern part of the valley where the helmet should be mounted. Mount the helmet on the spike, then return to Lashburr to inform him that the deed is done.

The standards have been burned and Agganor's helmet is on display.
"The little goat honors the stones with Agganor's blood! I will see the Scaled Court destroyed as well, this Lashburr swears. Little goat, it has my thanks. Steel for its enemies, blood for its tribe."


  • This quest was originally designed for a group of four players, but the difficulty was lowered with the Craglorn overhaul in One Tamriel update.
  • Agganor's helmet is automatically added to your quest items upon slaying him, rather than having to manually loot it from his corpse.

  • Not all Journal Entries may appear in your journal; which entries appear and which entries do not depends on the manner in which the quest is done.
  • Stages are not always in order of progress. This is usually the case with quests that have multiple possible outcomes or quests where certain tasks may be done in any order. Some stages may therefore repeat objectives seen in other stages.
