For other uses, see Darkwater Crossing.

Darkwater Crossing is a mining settlement located in southern Eastmarch. The property is monitored by Stormcloaks or Imperial Legion soldiers, depending on events during the Civil War. Verner and Annekke's House is located near the entrance of the mine. The miners recently started to have a case of bad cough down in the mine and are seeking the help of the alchemist in Windhelm.


There are sleeping bags beside a campfire near the mine, a wood chopping block near the house, and blacksmith equipment on-site.

Notable items[]


The residents of Darkwater Crossing, particularly Tormir and Hrefna, often mention a pair of men, Dasturn and Meieran. Their dialogue implies that the two are also residents of Darkwater Crossing. Neither of the two actually appear here, however.

Random encounters[]

There is a random encounter spawn-point next to Darkwater Crossing, to the southeast just behind the mine. If the random encounter includes hostiles, they may wander into the town and start attacking the residents.
