Walkthrough[edit | edit source]
Upon completing the quest Bar Brawl, if the Nerevarine sided with Falco, they may speak with him for assignments. He will mention that there has been a discovery in the mine; the workers have discovered some Stalhrim. He will task the Nerevarine to travel to the hut of a skaal outcast named Graring.
Graring's house is located just south of where the two rivers on the island come together. When the Nerevarine gets there, they will witness Graring being attacked by a woman named Coventina Celata. The Nerevarine should help Graring kill Coventina to gain his trust.
When Coventina is dead, Graring will hand the Nerevarine an Ancient Nordic Pick Axe and ask the player to bring him some Stalhrim. This can be found in the Raven Rock mine, though any other source of Stalhrim will also do. Once you have the Stalhrim, return to Graring. He will tell you that you can keep the stalhrim, and will tell you that you can bring any other Stalhrim you find to his friends and they will make weapons and armor from it.
Return to Falco to get your reward.

|Discovery in the Mine (Falco)|
|Falco informed me of a strange block of ice found in a burial cavern discovered in the mine. He's asked me to go speak to Graring, one of the local Nords about it. He and his companions can be found at the junction of the Harstrad and Islid rivers to the northeast of here.
|I found Graring and his companions under attack, but the assailant has been defeated.|
|Graring explained that the ice is called "Stalhrim," and is very valuable. He's given me a special pick axe to chip off some Stalhrim from the block in the mine.|
|I've chipped off a piece of the Stalhrim, and should take it to Graring.|
|Graring has agreed to construct weapons and armor out of the Stalhrim, if I bring him the raw materials. He's suggested that there is a finite amount of it on the island, so I should be careful of what I choose.|
|Falco is glad the Nords are willing to work with us, and has instructed me to bring Graring all the Stalhrim I can find.
|Graring is dead, making it impossible to get any information about the Stalhrim.
|I have killed Graring.
