The Alchemist and a strange tree
This Orsimer army needs to get into Frostbreak Fortress to find and destroy the source of the briarheart warriors, but the Winterborn's defenses are too strong. Between the briarhearts and the harpies, they can't break the walls.

The source of power must be destroyed

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Report to Siege Commander Dulph.
  2. Get inside the fortress and find the missing squads.
  3. Destroy the harpy aeries.
  4. Find the alchemist and get inside the fort.
  5. Investigate the briar heart.
  6. Destroy briar heart saplings.
  7. Recover Alinon's elixir.
  8. Destroy the Briar Heart tree.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

There is an imprisoned Reach warrior you can talk to while burning the saplings (optional, but not listed as an optional objective) who can give additional details about the briarheart warriors. He's pretty smug about it.

After destroying the tree, the quest marker for exiting the fortress is NOT in the correct area on the map. To meet up with Alinon and Eveli and finish the quest, take the unmarked exit that is at the far western side of the fortress map (out of the room with the tree in it).
