Quest Objectives


The adventure begins with receiving the miscellaneous quest "Search for the treasure of Haknir Death-Brand" when innkeeper Geldis Sadri in Raven Rock mentions the rumour. The quest is closed once the Deathbrand Treasure Map is found on the body of a pirate captain in Haknir's Shoal.

This quest then begins when the Dragonborn reads Deathbrand.

Use the Deathbrand Treasure Map to find the treasure

Reading the Deathbrand Treasure Map will reveal the locations of the ancient treasure chests that are marked out on Solstheim. None of the chests are hidden and they are usually guarded by treasure seekers, who have already conveniently dug out the chests.

Note: These chests cannot be found before the quest is started.

The chests can be found at these locations:
