Aspera Giant-Friend says the giants are about to go to war against the Stomfists that hold Cradlecrush because their mammoths were stolen. As long as I oppose the Stormfists, these giants will consider me to be an ally.

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Use the Giant-Friend Horn near the cave.
  2. Collect Stormfist Scout Orders, Gate Procedures and Mammoth Duty.
  3. Talk to Aspera Giant-Friend near the wayshrine.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

As you approach Cradlecrush from the north, you may notice Aspera Giant-Friend standing on the hill with a giant. Talk to her. She says the giants are preparing to go to war with the Stormfists, who stole their mammoths. She implores you for aid, and gives you a horn that allows you to call a giant over to help you.

Once you've finished talking to Aspera, you need to go east to the cave and use the horn. A giant should emerge from the cave and follow you as you collect Stormfist orders. You will need to collect orders by activating certain trees and directing the giant to hit them. The giant swings his club, and a Stormfist Scout may fall out of the tree. If you find a scout, kill them and loot their corpse for any documents they may have on hand. You should find their orders, a missive regarding the giants' mammoths, and a pamphlet detailing procedures for opening the stronghold's gate.

Once you've collected four orders, speak with Aspera west of the Cradlecrush Wayshrine.

Aspera Giant-Friend gave me a horn. I need to use the horn at a nearby cave to summon a giant ally.

Finishes quest☑ I defeated the Stormfist scouts and collected a variety of information about their current missions and procedures. I should talk to Aspera at the camp to the west and let her know what I found out.

  • 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.
