"I met an old Nord hunter named Froki who told me about Kyne's Sacred Trials. He has marked for me so that the guardian skeever, wolf and mudcrab should appear to me when I visit their lairs."
Dragonborn[src]

Background

The quest is given to the Dragonborn by Froki Whetted-Blade at Froki's Shack. This quest takes them around the map to kill various "Guardian" beasts.

There is nothing apparently special about these beasts while they are alive except that they appear as ghosts. They have the same characteristics as their normal counterparts. Once they die, instead of the usual corpse, there will be "Ghostly Remains" to be looted.

Walkthrough

Upon first talking to Froki, he asks the Dragonborn to kill three Guardian beasts, as follows:

After defeating all three and returning to Froki, he will ask that three tougher beasts be killed:

Upon returning to Froki after defeating these three beasts, he has one more beast to be killed: what he calls "the troll champion".

Reward

After completing this last kill, the Dragonborn will be awarded Kyne's Token by Froki. However, if the Dragonborn chooses to report the kill before asking Froki about his bow, then there will no opportunity to tell him about the bow. Either way, the Dragonborn keeps the bow (Froki says that they can keep it).

Trivia

  • During the objective to kill the Guardian mudcrab, its location is that of a fossilized mudcrab, which suggests the spirit is that of the fossil.
  • There is a ring of mushrooms located near the Guardian bear encounter that has a few items within it. Also, when passing over the mushrooms, the game says 'Activate White Cap', rather than the usual "Harvest White Cap". The items available are a random staff, and a random skill book.
  • The Guardian bear is identified as "Ursine Guardian" when approached.
