Dustman's Cairn


Dustman's Carin is a Nordic ruin located near Whiterun, very close to Hamvir's Rest. The Dragonborn enters this place to retrieve a fragment of Wuuthrad as part of his test to join The Companions.

Note: Only after taking on the quest Proving Honor will the cairn open up beyond the first chamber, since then someone did some digging as Farkas points out.

Places[edit | edit source]

The cairn is packed with Silver Hands (×15), draugr (×12) and one Hulking Draugr carries a rare Dented Iron Shield (in the Crypt there is another one)... and an arcane enchanter exists here as well.

Further in, more Silver Hands (×5), draugr (×26), skeevers (×6), a Giant Frostbite Spider and a Frostbite Spider await... and here an alchemy lab exits. On the path, a mural with a Ruby set into it can be collected by shooting at it (e.g. using Thunderbolt). Many of the already dead draugr contain valuable gems. A word wall for the shout Firebreath can be found in the last chamber, along with a Fragment of Wuuthrad.
