Locations[edit]

Walkthrough[edit]

After the death of Kodlak Whitemane, Vilkas wants to head out with you after the Silverhand. The goal is to recover the Fragments of Wuuthrad that were stolen as well (and get some revenge). Either way, you need to head out after them.

Driftshade Refuge[edit]

Driftshade Refuge

As you approach the entrance of this dungeon you will have a Silver Hand Melee fighter and Archer start attacking you. The fighter attacks on the ground. The Archer attacks from the rooftop of the entrance into their hideout. Kill them and search the area. There are a lot Snowberry plants around here. Head inside after that.

Driftshade Refuge

The entrance is typical of the Silver Hand, impaled werewolf heads. Follow the downward passage. This will lead to a wooden door. Open it and head into the first room. There are two Silver Hands in here. Pick them off or just charge in. Head down to the lower portion of the area. Turn to the West having dealt with that pair.

Driftshade Refuge

This leads to a ruined library. Turn to the North to find another Silver Hand. Pick them off and then head into the Northern room. You will find a Soul Gem and a healing portion sitting on the table to the Northwest. Search around for any important books. After that, go over to the West and up the stairs. This will lead to another large room. Inside is another pair of Silver Hands. One is patrolling the lower portion while the other one walks about on your level. First, head over to the left and deal with the Silver Hand where you enter. Follow the walkway to the Northern end, where you can see the Elk head. Below that is a bookshelf. You will find some useful books there. Now drop down, deal with the other member of the Silver Hand and then head into the small room in the Southwest corner of this room. You will find a locked chest (Adept level). Open it for some gold and jewelry.

Turn to the North and head through the corridor. Just to your left is a locked door (adept level). Pick to get inside. You will have one Silver Hand somewhere in the room. Kill them and then check over the room for Steel Ingots. Search around for some potions and then continue along the corridor to the North.

This room has another pair of Silver Hands waiting. One is again a ranged fighter while the other will come rushing at you. Defeat them.

You will see the way down in front of you. Just to the right of the raised gate is a lever. Pull it to lower the gate and allow you access to the Driftshade Cellar

Driftshade Cellar[edit]

Driftshade Cellar

Go around the first stack of barrels to the left. Look behind them to find a chest. After that, turn to the North and then follow the passage as it bends around to the East. Be careful as it turns back to the North. There is a pressure plate sitting in the middle of the floor. On the far side of the spiked wall that is triggered is a member of the Sliver Hand waiting to come after you. To the South is a locked cell (Adept level) with a dead werewolf inside it. Continue along the corridor until it turn to the right. Follow the path downward. Follow it to the wooden door. Open it up.

This room has 2 more Silver Hands to deal with. Again, one ranged and one melee. Defeat them. Go to the Eastern side of the room and look on the bookcase there. You will find the Light Armor skill book: The Rear Guard. Read it and then turn to the snowy passage to the North. Head on through that.

Driftshade Cellar

This leads to another room with a pair of Silver Hands. Defeat them and head up to the 2 cages on the upper level. One has a dead horse and the other holds a leveled Werewolf. Both are locked (Apprentice level) so what is inside is contained.

Turn to the North and head on through to the torture room. You will find another member of the Silver Hand waiting inside for you. Take them out. Loot the dead werewolf and then head through the next door.

Driftshade Cellar

This leads to a large room with 2 more of the Silver Hand below you. One is sitting by the fire while the other patrols around the area. Pick them off. Go behind the fireplace to the Northwest. You will find a bookshelf with some useful potions and an apothecary's satchel that you can get some Alchemy Ingredients from. After that, turn to the South and head through to the next part of the cellar. This will lead you to a door that reconnects to the Driftshade Refuge.

Driftshade Refuge, Part 2[edit]

Driftshade Refuge

As you emerge from the cellar, look on the floor in front of you to find a healing potion. After that, turn to the left. Head on up the ramp into the next room. This large room has another pair of Silver Hands at a table. This is where they have placed the Fragments of Wuuthrad. If you look at the table by the fireplace you will find the Blocking skill book: Warrior. To the West you will find a chest as well as Anvil, Workbench and Grindstone.

Travel back to Whiterun. When you enter the city, the next quest will begin automatically.
