Jorunn the Skald-King is encamped at Trolhetta with the bulk of the Ebonheart Pact's army. The Worm Cult is dug in, and hoping to hold on until they can gather the shards of Wuuthrad for some nefarious purpose.


Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Talk to Captain Vari Warhammer in Riften.
  2. (Optional) Find the other shards of Wuuthrad.
  3. Talk to Jorunn the Skald-King at Trolhetta.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Talk to Captain Vari Warhammer outside the Riften Fighters Guild.

"I'd heard rumors you were here, stirring up trouble. Fortunately, you're easier to find than I expected."
What's wrong?
"Jorunn the Skald-King led the bulk of our army to Trolhetta, but there's a snag. The Worms have dug in. We'll root them out, don't worry. But it's taking time. Jorunn sent me to update you. Apparently, you're important."
The cult hopes to gather the shards of Wuuthrad. They managed to find one here.
"That must be what they're after! Stall us at Trolhetta. Gather the shards and grow in power. We need those shards. Jorunn has things well in hand at Trolhetta. Find as many shards as you can, as you make your way to the mountain."
I'll do what I can.

If you want to find the other shards before you meet the king at Trolhetta, you should head to Lost Prospect, Forelhost and Fullhelm Fort. Otherwise, you can run straight southeast from Riften to Trolhetta.

The king is in the first tent on the right on the path into Trolhetta.

"I see Captain Warhammer tracked you down. Good."
I'm ready to put an end to the Worm Cult.
"As am I, my friend. But there is much to do. The Worms hide inside Trolhetta. Mark my words—Mannimarco's spawn dies today."

If you have the persuade perk, you can ask Jorunn to assign a warrior, a fire-mage or a healer to accompany you. The healer says that having more shards recovered will make the final battle easier; however, the other two companions do not say this, so the validity is not easy to judge. If you ask for a healer, a "Pact Healer" is assigned as a follower.

Bugs[edit]

  • Plays-with-fire's quest may have to be finished to finish the quest for Cadwell's gold/silver.
