Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

When you reach the bridge leading to the docks, you will come across an injured argonian, Eleven-Skips, who tells you that you don't have time to look for Captain Rana, as some fishermen from the docks are trapped in a burning windmill nearby. He asks that you rescue them before they die. The windmill is located to the west of the bridge, atop a small hill. As you reach it, you will see that the door is blocked by a door bar laid sideways across it. Remove it and the fishermen will rush out. As they go, a nord woman, Asga, limps in through the gate behind you, telling you that you have to help Sergeant Seyne at the docks, or she won't last long.

Head towards the docks and you'll find Covenant soldiers roaming in and around them, fighting against Pact soldiers. When you reach the east side of the docks, you'll find Sergeant Seyne trying to defend the fleeing fishermen from the invaders in front of some buildings. Assist her kill a few waves of them, and she'll tell you that she's all right and that you should go find Trynhild and Rana on the other side of the docks.

Cross the bridge to the western side of the docks. You'll find Trynhild slumped against a wall inside the building behind the quartermaster's tent. She will tell you that she fell fighting beside Captain Rana, and that Rana hid her here before going after the Covenant commander, who also organised the attack on Bleakrock. She asks that you don't let Rana fight him alone and sends you onwards to a ship docked at the end of the wooden pier to the north. Make your way to the ship, King Casimir's Pride, where you'll meet a tired-looking Captain Rana standing over some Covenant corpses. She will confirm that the commander of the ship is responsible for the deaths at Bleakrock and asks you to follow her belowdecks to confront him.

As you enter the hold of the ship, you'll find Captain Rana surrounded by burning cargo, facing a locked door at the end of the hold. Talk to her, and confirm that you are ready to fight, to make the commander, General Vette, appear along with a Covenant mage. Kill them and head back to the docks, where you will find the Covenant troops vanquished and their assault broken. Go aboard the ship, The Velvet Lash, being built in the middle of the docks, and enter the Centurion's Quarters at the northern end to talk to Centurion Mobareed. He will thank you for helping to drive the Covenant from the docks and reward you with General Vette's Greatsword and a moderate amount of gold, completing the quest.
