17: The Coldest Sleep

Havilstein Hoar-Blood, a Nord who stays at the campsite on Gnoll Mountain, is the next to die. If you have downloaded the Wizard's Tower mod, you can simply fast travel to Frostcrag Spire, as Havilstein's campsite is just a short walk from there.

If you approach from Bruma, it can be quite tough to climb up the mountain to reach the campsite. However if you haven't purchased the Wizard's Tower DLC, you'll have to approach the mountain another way. Just continuously move around the mountain until you come to a portion of it that isn't too steep to climb. You can still reach Frostcrag Spire's location without the content, but doing so won't be as easy as simply fast traveling there. Frostcrag Spire sits right on the 'U' in the 'County Bruma' text on the map if you have downloaded the Wizard's Tower content.

Havilstein Hoar-Blood can be found at the campsite on Gnoll Mountain with Redmaw, his wolf companion.

Once you have reached Havilstein's campsite on Gnoll Mountain, attempt to sneak up on him. His wolf companion, Redmaw, is a lot tougher than the average wolf found in the wild. Havilstein can be quite tough too, so keep an eye on your health bar while fighting him. If need be, flee up the mountain to heal. You'll want to kill Redmaw first, as he is quite fast, and if your character has a low Agility attribute, he is likely to stagger you with each strike.

With Havilstein dead, you can then proceed to the next dead drop. The dead drop orders, as well as your reward, can be found submerged in water in the ruins of Nornal. Nornal has been marked on your map; enter the ruins, and follow the marker on your compass to reach a small pool of water. Swim down, open the gate, and look in the sunken chest.
